Kate Bush. The Kick Inside
MY VIDEO. Title track from her 1978 debut album, The song is based on the old English *The Ballad of Lizzie Wan*. A folk tale of a sister falling in love with her brother and becoming pregnant. Rather than shame the family she decides to commit suicide. MY Video uses Thomas Hardy's *Tess of the D'urbervilles*. the lyrics of the song have nothing to do with hardy's novel. LYRICS,,,
I've pulled down my lace and the chintz.
Oh, do you know you have the face of a genius?
I'll send your love to Zeus.
Oh, by the time you read this,
I'll be well in touch.
I'm giving it all in a moment or two.
I'm giving it all in a moment, for you.
I'm giving it all, giving it, giving it.
This kicking here inside
Makes me leave you behind.
No more under the quilt
To keep you warm.
Your sister I was born.
You must lose me like an arrow,
Shot into the killer storm.
You and me on the bobbing knee.
Didn't we cry at that old mythology he'd read!
I will come home again,...
