the kick inside lyrics – kate bush

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, 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, but not until
the sun and the moon meet on yon hill.

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, 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.

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.
