This euphoric song was penned by Paloma Faith with Lindy Robbins, Cleo Tighe and Starsmith, who also produced the track. It is the lead single from The Architect.
Paloma Faith explained the song's meaning: "The lyrics are a conversation between a man and I, and the song questions whether global conflicts would cease to exist if men successfully dealt with their feelings. Would things be resolved without attack and with measured discussion."
Paloma Faith told the BBC that this heartfelt plea for men to discuss their feelings was inspired by observing the way politicians conduct themselves.
"Look at America," she said. "We saw Obama cry a lot of times and there was a softness and empathy about him. But I feel like, with Donald Trump, you've got the opposite. He sees figures on a piece of paper, rather than people."
That's what I was thinking about," Faith added. "Maybe if society was raising its young men in a more consciously open way, emotionally, that they wouldn't become the desensitized, angry leaders that we have."
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
