Song Lyric Sunday 4/23/17 – The Hurting

Pain. A broad topic as we’ve all experienced pain in our lives (sometimes intense) yet a challenging topic. Well, a fitting topic for our weekly Song Lyric Sunday venture.

The song I’ve chosen for this prompt is “The Hurting” which is the title track of the first album released by a certain British duo that you’ll probably recognize. Which one? Well, the initials of the members of the duo are R.O. and C.S. (with the former being the songwriter for this song). In medical lingo, this band would be known as Lachrymation For Phobias. Surely you have it figured out by now. 😉

Note: This is the only track I could find on YouTube for this song and it’s restricted from playback on WordPress. You’ll have to hop on over to YT. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Is it an horrific dream?
Am I sinking fast?
Could a person be so mean
As to laugh and laugh?

On my own
Could you ease my load?
Could you see my pain?
Could you please explain the hurting?

Could you understand a child
When he cries in pain?
Could you give him all he needs
Or do you feel the same?

All along
You’ve been told you’re wrong
When you felt it right
And you’re left to fight the hurting

The hurt
Hurt
Hurt
The hurt
Hurt
Hurt

Get in line with the things you know
Feel the pain, feel the sorrow
Touch the hurt and don’t let go
Don’t let go, don’t let go
Get in line with the things you know
Learn to cry like a baby
Then the hurting won’t come back
Won’t come back, won’t come back

The hurt
Hurt
Hurt
The hurt
Hurt
Hurt

(Is it an horrific dream?)
Hurt, hurt, hurt
(Is it an horrific dream?)
Hurt, hurt, hurt
(Is it an horrific dream?)
Hurt, hurt, hurt
(Is it an horrific dream?)
Hurt, hurt, hurt
(Is it an horrific dream?)
Hurt, hurt, hurt
(Is it an horrific dream?)
Hurt, hurt, hurt

I will say this is definitely not my favorite TFF song but it’ll do for the prompt I suppose. I vastly prefer “Mad World” which but I’ve already featured that song I had to think of another one.  Honestly the musical and lyrical composition of this particular reminds me a lot of “Space Aged Love Song” by Flock of Seagulls.

Anyway, there you have it. Your weekly dose of Tears for Fears. I know, I’m terrible. 😛

  1. I found this song to be soothing, although the lyrics are sad. I honestly thought I was prepared for the lyrics I would find today, but perhaps you can never be prepared to face the pain. Thanks so much for sharing. I’m thinking if you keep it up, I might just hear the entire TFF library. 🙂

    • LOL well that would take a long time for sure. You have ’82-’90 and then 2004-Present and in between Roland and Curt both had solo careers so there’s a lot to work through there. 😉

      Nonetheless, glad you liked the song. This is from their first album which also gave us such hits as Mad World, Pale Shelter, and Change. Good stuff.
