Deeper Understanding – Kate Bush

I turn to my computer And spend my evenings with it Like a friend. I was loading a new programme I had ordered from a magazine: “Are you lonely, are you lost? This voice console is a must.” I press Execute. “Hello, I know that you’ve been feeling tired. I bring you love and deeper […]

Reaching Out – Kate Bush

To feel how fire will feel. See how the man reaches out instinctively For what he cannot have. The pull and the push of it all. Reaching out for the hand. Reaching out for the hand that smacked. Reaching out for that hand to hold. Reaching out for the Star. Reaching out for the Star […]

Blow Away ( For bill ) – Kate Bush

That music is all that he’s got in his life. So where does it go? Surely not with his soul. Will all of his licks and his R’n’B Blow away? Blow away Blow away Our engineer had a different idea From people who nearly died but survived, Feeling no fear of leaving their bodies here, […]

King of the Mountain – Kate Bush

Could you see them screaming & weeping? Could you see the storm rising? Could you see the guy who was driving? Could you climb higher and higher? Could you climb right over the top? Why does a multi millionaire Fill up his home with priceless junk? The wind is whistling The wind is whistling Though […]

Waking the witch – Kate Bush

“A good morning, ma’am. Your early morning call.” “You must wake up!” “[titter] Wake up! [titter]” “Wake up, man!” “Wake up, child! Pay attention!” “Come on, wake up!” “Wake up, love!” “We should make the night, but see your little light’s alive!” “Stop that lyin’ and a-sleepin’ in bed–get up!” “Ma needs a shower. Get […]

Houdini – Kate Bush

And hold hands with weeping strangers, Wait for you To join the group. The tambourine jingle-jangles. The medium roams and rambles. Not taken in, I break the circle. I want this man To go away now. With a kiss I’d pass the key And feel your tongue Teasing and receiving. With your spit Still on […]

Mother stands for comfort – Kate Bush

But she won’t say anything. She thinks that I was with my friends yesterday, But she won’t mind me lying, Because Mother stands for comfort. Mother will hide the murderer. It breaks the cage, and fear escapes and takes possession, Just like a crowd rioting inside. (Make me do this, make me do that, make […]

This Woman’s Work – Kate Bush

I stand outside this woman’s work, This woman’s world. Ooh, it’s hard on the man, Now his part is over. Now starts the craft of the father. I know you have a little life in you yet. I know you have a lot of strength left. I know you have a little life in you […]

In the Warm Room – Kate Bush

Her perfume reaches you. Eventually you’ll fall for her. Down you’ll go To where the mellow wallows. In the warm room She’ll touch you with your Mamma’s hand. You’ll long to kiss those red lips, But when you do It’ll feel like kicking a habit. She’ll tell you that she’ll stay, So you’d better barricade […]

All the Love – Kate Bush

Was in the arms of good friends of mine. They kiss me with tears. They hadn’t been near me for years. Say, why do it now When I won’t be around, I’m going out? “We needed you To love us too. We wait for your move.” Only tragedy allows the release Of love and grief […]

Night Of the Swallow – Kate Bush

Looks just like your face on the moon, to me. And I won’t let you do What you want to do. It’s funny how, even now, You’re laughing. I won’t let you do it. If you go, I’ll let the law know, And they’ll head you off when you touch the ground. Ooh, please, don’t […]

Oh To Be In Love – Kate Bush

As you shift along the floor, I find it hard to place my face. How did i come to be here, anyway? It’s terribly vague, what’s gone before.* I could have been anyone. You could have been anyone’s dream. Why did you have to choose our moment? Why did you have to make me feel […]

Aerial – Kate Bush

And the wine will run And the song must be sung And the flowers are melting In the sun I feel I want to be up on the roof I feel I gotta get up on the roof Up, up on the roof Up, up on the roof Oh the dawn has come And the […]

Never Be Mine – Kate Bush

My life that might have been: Your face just ghostly in the smoke. They’re setting fire to the cornfields As you’re taking me home. The smell of burning fields Will now mean you and here. This is where I want to be. This is what I need. This is where I want to be. This […]

Lily – Kate Bush

From whom all things proceed To whom all things return Unveil to us the face of the true spiritual sun Hidden by a disc of golden light That we may know the truth And do our whole duty As we journey to thy sacred feet Well i said “lily, oh lily i don’t feel safe […]

The Dreaming – Kate Bush

On the bonnet of the van. “See the light ram through the gaps in the land.” Many an Aborigine’s mistaken for a tree ‘Til you near him on the motorway And the tree begin to breathe. “See the light ram through the gaps in the land.” (“Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha”) Coming in with the golden light In the […]

Big Stripey Lie – Kate Bush

Like a wavy line Coming up behind All young gentle dreams drowning In life’s grief Can you hang on me? Don’t want to hurt you baby I only want to help you I could be good for you Your name is being called by sacred things That are not addressed nor listened to Sometimes they […]

Between A Man And A Woman – Kate Bush

They were both happy again. You started taking sides. They started arguing. He said it was her fault. She said it wasn’t at all. But the truth lies somewhere in the midDLe. Where angels fear to tread, You go rushing in. Well, I had to tell you then, And now I’m telling you again: Stay […]

Army Dreamers – Kate Bush

Army dreamers. “Mammy’s hero.” “B. F. P. O.” “Mammy’s hero.” Our little army boy Is coming home from B. F. P. O. I’ve a bunch of purple flowers To decorate a mammy’s hero. Mourning in the aerodrome, The weather warmer, he is colder. Four men in uniform To carry home my little soldier. “What could […]

Kite – Kate Bush

Beelzebub is aching in my belly-o. My feet are heavy and i’m rooted in my wellios. And i want to get away and go From all these mirror windows. I look at eye level, it isn’t good enough. And then i find it out when i take a good look up. There’s a hole in […]

Pull Out the Pin – Kate Bush

I’ve never been so happy to be alive. Only seven miles behind You could smell the child, The smell of the front line’s survival. With my silver Buddha And my silver bullet, (I pull the pin.) You learn to ride the Earth, When you’re living on your belly and the enemy are city-births. Who need […]

Room For The Life – Kate Bush

Do you think that they care if they’re real, woman? They just take it as part of the deal. Lost in your men and the games you play. Trying to prove that you’re better, woman. But you needn’t get heavy with them. Like it or not, we were built tough, Because we’re woman. No, we […]

And dream of sheep – Kate Bush

Little light will guide them to me. My face is all lit up, My face is all lit up. If they find me racing white horses, They’ll not take me for a buoy. Let me be weak, Let me sleep And dream of sheep. “Attention shipping information in sea areas…Bell Rock, Tiree, Cromaty, gale east…Malin, […]
