The Pain Will Find Us is a transcription and arrangement of a Greek folk tune from the Vasilis Paiteris recording Song of Greece's Gypsies. St. John sent Psathas a selection of folk tunes from which to choose and base two new works on. Psathas chose o ilios (the sun), a tsamikos dance from Roumeli (the colloquial name for the central region of Greece), and dui dui (two two), which he renamed My Love Awakes and The Pain Will Find Us, respectively.
