About Sympathy

"Sympathy" is a song by the English progressive rock band Rare Bird. It became the band's only UK chart entry when it peaked at number 27 in the UK Singles Chart in 1970. The song reached No. 1 in Italy and in France, selling 500,000 copies in France and over one million globally. A 1970 cover version of the track by The Family Dogg reached number two in the Netherlands. In 1992, a version by Marillion reached number 17 in the UK, becoming their 17th Top 40 hit. The song has also been covered by Toyah in 1985, and sampled by Faithless in 2002. The cover art features a painting by Marc Harrison titled The Birdwoman Of Zartacla (later also used for the cover of the June 1981 issue of the Heavy Metal magazine).

And when you climb 
Into your bed tonight 
And when you lock,
Of the door 
Just think of those 
Out in the cold and dark 
'cause there's not enough love to go round 

[Chorus] 
And sympathy 
Is what we need my friend 
And sympathy 
Is what we need 
And sympathy 
Is what we need my friend 
'cause there's not enough love to go round 

Now half the world 
Hits the other half 
And half the world 
Has all the food 
And half the world 

'cause there's not enough love to go round 

[Chorus]
