Pavement Cracks

  • In a blog promoting her 2009 greatest hits album, Annie Lennox explained this song: "I was deeply down... Just trying to get through one day at a time, on the point of desperation on a regular basis. There was a feeling that all the color had gone... faded to black. I know the world is painful, but you have to try to work with pain so that it doesn't destroy you. I've moved on now. The color came back again."
