about

Kate Bush has been a bug influence on me. The Kick Inside, was one of the first albums I was obsessed with and it retains its pleasure and power over these many years. This is an amazing, goosebump-inducing song. I hope you like my version.

lyrics

I hear him, before I go to sleep
And focus on the day that’s been
I realise he’s there when I turn the light off
And turn over.
Nobody knows about my man.
They think he’s lost on some horizon.
And suddenly I find myself, listening to man
I’ve never known before.
Telling me about the sea
Oh he’s lost to eternity.

Ooo he’s here again
The man with the child in his eyes.

He’s very understanding
And he’s so aware
Of all my situations
And when I stay up late
He’s always waiting
But I feel him hesitate.
Oh I’m so worried about my love.
They say, no no it won’t last for ever.
And here I am again, my girl.
Wondering what on earth I’m doing here.
Maybe he doesn’t love me
I just took a trip
On my love for him.

Ooo he’s here again
The man with the child in his eyes.
