Wuthering Heights

July 3, 2008

Wuthering Heights by Kate Bush

Yea, I know this song takes some getting used to. Kate has a very *ahem* interesting style. Her facial expressions, her dress, her voice…nothing about this song is typical. However, it is amazingly beautiful all the same, and the lyrics are incredible. If you’ve read the book, you know how spooky it is. The whole story is dark and mysterious, and Cathy strikes me as being quite witch-y. Kate captures all those feelings perfectly. Again, incredible, incredible song. You may have to watch it a couple times over to truly appreciate it–I remember the first time I heard it I just thought it was weird. But if you can find the gem underneath all the strangeness, you’ve found one of the best songs to come out of England in the ’70’s. Enjoy!

Out on the wiley, windy moors
We’d roll and fall in green.
You had a temper like my jealousy
Too hot, too greedy.
How could you leave me,
When I needed to possess you?
I hated you. I loved you, too.

Bad dreams in the night
You told me I was going to lose the fight,
Leave behind my wuthering, wuthering
Wuthering Heights.

Heathcliff, it’s me, your Cathy, I’ve come home. I´m so cold,
let me in-a-your window.

Ooh, it gets dark! It gets lonely,
On the other side from you.
I pine a lot. I find the lot
Falls through without you.
I’m coming back, love,
Cruel Heathcliff, my one dream,
My only master.

Too long I roamed in the night.
I’m coming back to his side, to put it right.
I’m coming home to wuthering, wuthering,
Wuthering Heights,

Heathcliff, it’s me, your Cathy, I’ve come home. I’m so cold,
let me in-a-your window.

Ooh! Let me have it.
Let me grab your soul away.
Ooh! Let me have it.
Let me grab your soul away.
You know it’s me–Cathy!

Heathcliff, it’s me, your Cathy, I’ve come home. I´m so cold,
let me in-a-your window
Heathcliff, it’s me, Cathy, I’ve come home. I´m so cold,
let me in-a-your window.

Heathcliff, it’s me, your Cathy, I’ve come home. I’m so cold…
