Eurythmics  1981  In the Garden

EURYTHMICS' debut album, In the Garden, is the missing link between the work of THE TOURISTS, who included both DAVE STEWART and ANNIE LENNOX, and 1983's commercial breakthrough, Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This). Co-produced by KRAFTWERK producer Conny Plank at his studio in Cologne, Germany, it has some of the distant, mechanistic feel of the European electronic music movement, but less of the pop sensibility of later EURYTHMICS. The chief difference is in Lennox's singing; even when the musical bed is appealing, Lennox floats ethereally over it, and the listener doesn't focus on her. As a result, In the Garden wasn't much of a success, though when EURYTHMICS streamlined their sound and emphasized Lennox's dominating voice on subsequent releases, they found mass popularity.

English Summer

(Lennox Pomphrey Stewart)

Child in the distance
A memory untamed
Family connections
There's a mess in the kitchen
All messages received
Always a quick reply
The mood the afternoon
Another change of light

There's nothing like an English summer

The telephone is good
So wonderful and true
We need the time to think
Everyone's listening
Another change of light
The underlying truth
Request to pack it in
No solutions

Belinda

(Lennox Stewart)

Belinda the rain is falling
Belinda your love is calling
Belinda he'd never leave you
Belinda he won't deceive you
Belinda your mind is dreaming
Belinda it's so misleading
Belinda he'd never leave you
Belinda he won't deceive you

How the rain still falls

Belinda your eyes have spoken
Belinda your heart is broken
Belinda he'd never leave you
Belinda he won't deceive you

Dry your tears
Close your eyes

Take Me to Your Heart

(Lennox Stewart)

Take me to your heart

Time after time
I try to contact you
Time after time
I try to talk to you
But you don't take me to your heart

When I'm alone
I think you're near me
It's good to pretend
That you're with me
Why don't you take me to your heart

She's Invisible Now

(Lennox Stewart)

Takes a step back
From the vacant chair
Looking in the mirror
While she's combing her hair
Wipes the dust from a cup
While she's cleaning up
Wonders very slightly
What she's doing there

A simple reflection
Can be too revealing
Years are for counting
Years are for stealing
She's a mathematician

Calculator
Counting daily
Counting forever

Cold clean glass and a razor blade
Fly on the table and a passing car
Closes the curtain to keep in the shade
Closes her head and now she's counting down

Dust is collecting
But she doesn't notice
Counting for ever
She's a calculator
No-one can see her

She's invisible now
No-one can see her
And the dust is collecting

Your Time Will Come

(Lennox Stewart)

She is but a shadow
Of her former self
You can't recognise her
She is someone else

Your time will come

She is not the same person
She just keeps changing

She is but a shadow of her former self

Your time will come

In the garden
In the stillness of morning

Your time will come

Caveman Head

(Lennox Pomphrey Stewart)

Feel my body breathing in
Touch the softness of my skin
I am very beautiful
I can be so beautiful

I am very beautiful
I could be successful

My hands are moving
My feet are tied

Watch the way my hair falls down
See the way my hair falls down

I am very beautiful
I can be so beautiful

Touch the softness of my skin
Feel my body breathing in

My hands are moving
My feet are tied
My eyes are closing
My mouth is wide

I will let you touch me
If you want to touch me

Never Gonna Cry Again

(Lennox Stewart)

I'm never gonna cry again
I'm never gonna die again
I shed some tears for you
I shed more tears for you than the ocean

I didn't wanna let you know
I didn't wanna take your time
I didn't wanna bring you down
I didn't want to hang around you

So we're living in desperate times
Oh such an unfortunate time
I can't relate to you
I just can't find a place to be near you

All the Young (People of Today)

(Lennox Stewart)

Young girls
Not so innocent
Will give you wide eyes
Will show you knowing smiles

Young men
An air of independence
Will take you at their leisure
They live for pleasure

All the young people of today

Young girls
An air of mystery
Are dreaming from their towers
They smell of flowers

Young men
They can do anything
They are set to win
With unmatched power

All the young people of today

Sing-Sing

(Lennox Stewart)

Les animaux sont arrivs
Jour par jour se travaille
Dans le train
En auto
Sur les bicyclettes

Les animaux sont arrivs
Jour par jour se travaille

Dans le train
Chaque semaine
Sur les bicyclettes
Dans les rues
C'est partout
Dans les places publiques

Toutes les btes de la cit

Toutes les personnes fatigues
A les maisons retournent
Les mtiers c'est termin

Regardez Regardez

Toutes les personnes fatigues

Quelle horreur qu'est ce que c'est
C'est la vie juste la vie
Presque la vie

Revenge

(Lennox Stewart)

She said revenge can be so sweet
I like to take it when I can
I need to play with the ones I hate
I like to see them suffer

It has to be dangerous
It has to be refined
It has to be skillfull
You need to take your time

She said I take care
Of my resources
You never know
When you might need them

**She said, "You got a snake,
And that's a good example
You don't even notice it until you're bitten,
You learn to enjoy it.**

I'm fast and I'm strong
My reflexes are good
It doesn't take long
To achieve my deserved revenge
