​The Medal Song

This song is by Culture Club and appears on the album Waking Up with the House on Fire (1984).

You used to say
Love and be loved
All the time
Till you discovered
Feelings were a failure sign
When it rains
It rains so hard
The tears begin to show
When it's raining in my heart
I want the world to know

Life will never be the same
As it was again
Life will never be the same
As it was again
Through my anger and my joy
My tears and pain

Beneath the sea of Hollywood
Where Francis used to reign
They trade their deepest wishes
For a part in someone's game
Spirits die alone at night
For life they cannot hold
I would rather dance with you
Than have a medal to show

Life will never be the same
As it was again
Life will never be the same
As it was again
Through my anger and my joy
My tears and pain

We are just everyday people
Not a theater company
Everyone wants to join us
There's no fear in us you see
It's me for you
And you for me

Sun go east, sun go west
Will I wear a medal again
Sun go east, son go west
We can dance and bring on the rain

Now I say love for love
Not for a space in time
The strangest things
Can shatter kings
And take away what's mine
When it's raining in my heart
I want the world to know
I would rather dance with you
Than have a medal to show

Life will never be the same
As it was again
Life will never be the same
As it was again
Through my anger and my joy
My tears and pain

Sun go east, sun go west
Will I wear a medal again
Sun go east, son go west
We can dance and bring on the rain
