Walking on Broken Glass
Annie Lennox Lyrics


Walking on, walking on broken glass
Walking on, walking on broken glass

You were the sweetest thing that I ever knew
But I don't care for sugar, honey, if I can't have you
Since you've abandoned me
My whole life has crashed
Won't you pick the pieces up?
'Cause it feels just like I'm walking on broken glass

Walking on, walking on broken glass (ooh, yeah)
Walking on, walking on broken glass

The sun's still shining in big blue sky
But it don't mean nothing to me
Oh, let the rain come down
Let the wind blow through me
I'm living in an empty room
With all the windows smashed
And I've got so little left to lose
That it feels just like I'm walking on broken glass

Walking on, walking on (ooh) broken glass

And if you're trying to cut me down
You know that I might bleed
'Cause if you're trying to cut me down
I know that you'll succeed
And if you want to hurt me
There's nothing left to fear
'Cause if you want to hurt me
You're doing really well, my dear

Now everyone of us was made to suffer
Everyone of us was made to weep
We've been hurting one another
Now the pain has cut too deep
So take me from the wreckage
Save me from the blast
Lift me up and take me back
Don't let me keep on walking (don't let me keep on walking)
I can't keep on walking on (keep on walking on)
(I can't) Keep on walking on broken glass

Walking on, walking on broken glass (ooh)
Walking on, walking on broken glass
Walking on, walking on broken glass
Walking on, walking on broken glass
Walking on, walking on broken glass
Walking on, walking on broken glass

I’ll say this about Annie Lennox... she knows how to make a music video.

Dennis Delgado

Her music videos are now classic works of art.

Alan Dallas

Technically that was Sophie Muller that made and Directed this video. She did something like 8 or 9 of Annies videos in 1992. Sophie's also directed a bunch of Gwen Stefani video's as well.

John Malkovich and Hugh Laurie. Back when making music videos was art.

Maria Maraki.

Joshua Fess

I think a reunion remake would be epic!!

Anthony Plue

Yeah that’s him. I wouldn’t have thought of him lol

Jimicus Jolcen

What's "art"?

robbie williams

@Mark Abbott You re welcome mate. I have seen this video many times over many years and never saw anyone apart from Hugh and John, until reading some posts here and someone said that Hugh was playing the character of Prince George from Blackadder and someone else mentioned that they wish Rowan was there so I went through the entire video frame by frame and spotted him. It really is a case of blink and you will miss him. You get a great view of him at 1:57 but you really need to stop on the exact frame at that point.
I keep looking for Tony Robinson and for Stephen Fry but sill can not see them.
I even asked my son who he thought that guy was and straight away he said Rowan Atkinson, he has special needs but has an amazing almost servant ability for spotting people/objects even for a fraction of a moment and knowing exactly who/what they are.
I am really pleased I spot him and Tim.
One day I would love to meet Annie and ask her about this, then I would ask her if she really had the hots for David Bowie and did anything happen between them after the Freddie Mercury tribute concert! lol
