The album was influenced by two events in Sting's life: first, the death in late 1986 of his mother, which contributed to the sombre tone of several songs; and second, his participation in the Conspiracy of Hope Tour on behalf of Amnesty International, which brought Sting to parts of Latin America that had been ravaged by civil wars, and introduced him to victims of government oppression. "They Dance Alone (Cueca Solo)" was inspired by his witnessing of public demonstrations of grief by the wives and daughters of men missing in Chile, tortured and murdered by the military dictatorship of the time, who danced the Cueca (the traditional dance of Chile) by themselves, with photos of their loved ones pinned to their clothes. "Be Still My Beating Heart" and "The Lazarus Heart" approach the subjects of life, love and death. Elsewhere on the album, "Englishman in New York", in honor of Quentin Crisp, continues the jazz-influenced music more commonly found on Sting's previous album, as does "Sister Moon". "The Lazarus Heart" was originally written by Sting as the musical finale of the 1988 film, Who Framed Roger Rabbit in an early draft in which the novel, Who Censored Roger Rabbits' tragic ending where Roger is killed in the crossfire in the final duel was still in the script. When Disney ordered its default ending (where Roger is still alive in the final duel) to be used, the song got deleted and ended up on Sting's album instead.
