Eurythmics Revenge 25: Day 23 Lyric Analysis For “Take Your Pain Away” and “In This Town”

“Take Your Pain Away” (Eurythmics)

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.

 

“In This Town” (Eurythmics)

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.
