The Corrs: Everybody Hurts | Mount Merapi Eruption #MM

Tuesday, November 09, 2010
You can hear the song Everybody Hurts performed by The Corrs on almost every Indonesian television channel these days. The song hopefully gives away a sense of courage and enlightenment toward all the pain and struggle people in our nation are currently going through due the eruptions of Mount Merapi. But, let's also not forget about the victims of Wasior and Mentawai who need prayers and help.

Mount Merapi has still no attentions to close down on its activity. Several cities have been under the impact of its volcanic ashes and many flight schedules had been canceled because of thick and hot smoke. I have found a video on Youtube with the song Everybody Hurts by The Corrs that can show you some of the damage and tragedy by Mount Merapi's eruptions. Please, don't get tired of me asking you for prayers and good thoughts on Indonesia. Thank you.

The Corrs is a folk rock band featuring the Corr siblings from Ireland who gained international success in 1996, after performing at the Summer Olympics in Atlanta and supporting Celine Dion on her Falling Into You Tour.

The song Everybody Hurts was originally released by the American rock band R.E.M. in their 1992 album Automatic by The People. The Corrs released their cover version as 14th track on their CD album The Corrs Unplugged in 1999.

Everybody Hurts lyrics

When your day is long
And the night
The night is yours alone
When you're sure you've had enough of this life
Well hang on

Don't let yourself go
Cause everybody cries
And everybody hurts

Sometimes everything is wrong
Now it's time to sing along
(When your day is night alone)
Hold on, hold on
(If you feel like letting go)
Hold on
If you think you've had too much of this life
Well hang on

Cause everybody hurts
Take comfort in your friends
Everybody hurts

Don't throw your hand
Oh, no
Don't throw your hand
When you feel like you're alone
No, no, no, you're not alone

If you're on your own
In this life
The days and nights are long
When you think you've had too much
Of this life
To hang on

Well, everybody hurts
Sometimes, everybody cries
And everybody hurts

And everybody hurts

So, hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on
(Everybody hurts
You are not alone)

Fade out
