Is gonna lift you right up from your prison cell
Play it out loud like a ringing bell
You go: “R.E.V.I.V.A.L.”
Some days begin in a so bad way that it seems impossible to take it meekly: “Well, when I passed you by this morning you were stumbling down the street and by the look upon your face I could tell you wasn’t feeling too sweet”. And sometimes it seems impossible to set up new and long lasting friendships:” Look at that girl, she’s the saddest thing you’ve ever seen; washed up and faded like a dirty old pair of jeans. She’s running round in circles but she don’t have a single friend: looks like her own bitterness has twisted her till the end.
In this song, the first single taken from We Too Are One (1989), Eurythmics suggest optimistically “A new way out”: R.E.V.I.V.A.L.!
