Did you ever feel the pain That he felt upon the cross Did you ever feel the knife Tearing flesh that's oh so soft
Did you ever touch the night Did you ever count the cost Do you hide away the fear Put down paradise as lost
Yeah you're blinded by rainbows Watching the wind blow Blinded by rainbows Do you dream at night Do you sleep at night I doubt it
Did you ever feel the blast As a Semtex bomb goes off Do you ever hear the screams As the limbs are all torn off Did you ever kiss the child Who just saw his father shot Do you ever shed a tear As the war drags on and on
Do you ever touch the night Or is it just another job Do you fear the final hours Put down paradise as lost
Yeah you're blinded by rainbows And faces in windows Blinded by rainbows Do you dream at night Do you sleep at night I doubt it, yeah
Do you ever fear the night Could it be the war is lost Do you fear the final hour Do you kneel before the cross
You're blinded by rainbows And watching the wind blow Blinded by rainbows Do you dream at night Do you scream at night Do you smell of fear Is your conscience clear Are you caked in sweat
Are your clothes all wet Do you see the light Is the end in sight See the face of Christ Enter paradise I doubt it

Rockgod from Dunellen, NjWhat other genius than Mick Jagger would make a literary allusion to poet John Milton: "Put down paradise as lost..."? Mick is quite the erudite rock star now, idn't 'e?
Susan from Toronto, CanadaMick said (in GUITAR WORLD or GUITAR PLAYER, I forget which) that he was going for a Staple Singers sound with this song, and most likely he meant regarding Pops Staples' unique guitar sound.
John from Johannesburg, South AfricaThis really gets to the depths of your mind and lets the feelings flow
Johnny from Los Angeles, CaThis is a rare political song by The Stones. They usually sing about lighter topics, like girls.
Rory from Victoria, CanadaJust realized something, this is part of the soundtrack for "The Replacements" that stupid keanu reeves movie...What a shame.
Rory from Victoria, CanadaThis song is pure genius...It deserves a great deal more attention then it gets. The song is deep and cuts deep, simply said its an excellant song and I listen to it on a regular basis.
Jake from Toronto, CanadaNot many people realize how good this song really is, because most people who listen to the Stones don't like their slower, softer songs... and anyone who doesn't listen to the Stones would be used to their sex-related lyrics and not even dare listen to their other songs. A great song anyways.
Thomas from Groningen, NetherlandsIsn't the guitar solo of Ronnie Wood f*cking awsome?!
It really was so easy for Linda Ronstadt to score a hit with her Buddy Holly cover of "It's So Easy." She would sometimes change the lyric to: "It's so easy to have a hit, all you have to do is recycle it."
The Frozen song "Let It Go" was recorded in 42 different languages for the movie's foreign releases. This earned it an entry in the 2016 Guinness World Records publication for "Most Languages Featured on a Single."
