Eurythmics Revenge 25: Day 23 Lyric Analysis For “Take Your Pain Away” and “In This Town”
For every aching heart
For every broken soul
When it comes to assist a suffering loved one, appeasing the hurt of body and soul would probably be one of the most wanted powers we’d ask for to the proverbial genie in a bottle: “I would ease the burden that you carry everyday; oh don’t you know I’d find a cure and take your pain away?”.
Until magical skills will be available to the majority of us, the best we can do is guarantee all our support and love: “So give up your worries, they’ll only do your harm; there is no need to be concerned, it’s just a false alarm”.
“Take Your Pain Away” is the seventh song on Revenge.
I’m looking at the world
Looking for a scene
Waiting for a day
Filling in time like I’m digging my own grave
Deadly boredom… sometimes it seems there’s nothing else than this in our days: “I could be anywhere else but here, but the rain won’t let me go; there’s a photograph hanging on my wall of a place I’ve never been to”.
And just when the city seems overwhelmed by a grey cloak of tedium, an outburst of life takes over: “In this town something’s gotta change”.
It’s pretty much up to ourselves: don’t you agree?
“In This Town” is featured on Revenge as the ninth and second last track.
