"Savage" as written by Annie Lennox and David Allan Stewart....
Words of power are killing me
While the sun displays its teeth.
All mockery is laughing
All violence is cheap.

She said,
"These are my guns
These are my furs
This is my living room."
"You can play with me there sometimes
If you catch me in the mood."

You savage

She said,
"I have this unhappiness
To wear around my neck."
"It's a pretty piece of jewelery
To show what I protect."

She said,
"Everything is fiction
All cynic to the bone."
"So don't ask me to stay with you
Don't ask to see me home."

You savage

    My OpinionNo comments? This is one of my favorite Eurythmics songs and it's certainly one of their more under-rated ones. Lennox's eerie repetition of the song's title throughout, Stewart's unforgettable guitar, and the slightly spooky, seemingly ethereal fade out to the song's end combine to form a great piece of 1980s pop. While this album (titled the same as this song) was not the group's strongest, this piece, along with "You Have Placed a Chill in My Heart", "Shame", and "I Need a Man" create some of the groups best later work.
