Unspoken, “The Cure”

Unspoken, "The Cure"

A few months ago, Contemporary Christian band Unspoken released The Cure off their latest album, Follow Through. The song hasn’t quite set radio on fire the way its previous singles have, which is a shame, because this song is every bit as good as its previous singles, especially the delightful Higher. I’m led to believe that Christian AC programmers are really averse to songs with horn sections, which is a darn shame! LOL

Seriously, when I first heard The Cure, which discusses why Jesus is pretty much the answer to our questions and what we’re looking for in this life, I thought it was a track by Switchfoot. Not that The Cure is the kind of song we can or should expect from the legendary Jon Foreman-led Christian rock group. I think it’s more indicative of the kind of growth and sonic landscape we can expect from one of Christian music’s more talented new groups, and methinks that’s saying a lot.

THE CURE Lyrics
Unspoken

We’re all related, brothers and strangers,
The king and the beggar bleed the same.
We’ve all got a sickness, a terminal condition,
We medicate it but the pain won’t go away.

See the eyes of a million faces,
Looking forward in a million places,
Only one can save us, Jesus.

You are the cure!
Everybody’s searching for it,
Everybody’s reaching out,
Trying to grab a hold of something real.
You are the cure!
Only you can satisfy us,
Fill up the void inside us,
Never been a heart you couldn’t heal.

You are the cure…

You are the doctor, healer and father,
To the orphan without a home.
We feel in the darkness, lost till you found us,
You are the remedy we’ve been looking for.

You are the cure!
Everybody’s searching for it,
Everybody’s reaching out,
Trying to grab a hold of something real.
You are the cure!
Only you can satisfy us,
Fill up the void inside us,
Never been a heart you couldn’t heal.

You are the cure…

Cure for the broken, the hope for a hopeless world.
The meaning, the purpose, the peace that will make us whole.

Don’t have to search no more.
Don’t have to search no more.

You are the cure!
Everybody’s searching for it,
Everybody’s reaching out,
Trying to grab a hold of something real.
You are the cure!
Only you can satisfy us,
Fill up the void inside us,
Never been a heart you couldn’t heal.

You are the cure…

You are the cure, cure
Never been a heart you couldn’t heal.
You are the cure, cure
Never been a heart you couldn’t heal.
