It's a cute song with a moderately fast rhythm in C Major with 4/4 time signature. Another popular song from this artist is Sweet Dreams Are Made of This. I had read that Annie Lennox started playing the flute at 17 in the Royal Academy of Music in London and now she is a very successful solo artist!

You do it really well my dear...

Now everyone of us was made to suffer
Everyone of us is made to weep
We've been hurting one another
And now the pain has cut too deep...
So take me from the wreckage
Save me from the blast
Lift me up and take me back
Don't let me keep on walking...
Walking on broken glass.
Don't let me keep on walking.
(Walking on walking on broken glass)
