The Hurting
by Tears for Fears

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

Get in line with the things you know
Feel the Pain
Feel the sorrow
Touch the hurt and 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

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

[Pre-Chorus 1: Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith]
On my own
Could you ease my load?
Could you see my pain?
Could you please explain
The hurting

[Interlude]

[Verse 2: Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith]
Could you understand a child
When he cries in pain?
Could you give him all he needs
Or do you feel the same?

[Pre-Chorus 2: Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith]
All along
You've been told you're wrong
When you felt it right
And you're left to fight
The hurting

[Chorus: Roland Orzabal]
The hurt, hurt, hurt
The hurt, hurt, hurt

[Interlude]

[Bridge: Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith]
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

[Chorus: Roland Orzabal]
The hurt, hurt, hurt
The hurt, hurt, hurt

[Outro: Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith, Roland Orzabal]
Is it an horrific dream?
The hurt, hurt, hurt
Is it an horrific dream?
The hurt, hurt, hurt
Is it an horrific dream?
The hurt, hurt, hurt
Is it an horrific dream?
The hurt, hurt, hurt
Is it an horrific dream?
The hurt, hurt, hurt
Is it an horrific dream?
The hurt, hurt, hurt
Is it an horrific dream?
The hurt, hurt, hurt

Groundbreaking album, still to this day it's a little underappreciated considering how ahead of the curve it was. I mean 1983, that's really all that needs to be said about it.

John Hamm

@QUIET STORM well that's true, I still think it's underappreciated.

QUIET STORM

It was a massive Hit album the UK No1 and stayed there for 6 weeks. It did well all over world really for a new band.

Marcel Versteeg

I totaly agree with you...stay safe, stay healthy in these horrible times!

Bram Lempers
