Song Lyric Sunday 17th February

Jim has given us Hill/Mountain as the theme for this week.

I love the classics River Deep, Mountain High and Ain’t no Mountain High Enough, but thought they would already be chosen.

So I’ve picked Kate Bush ‘Running Up That Hill’ from the 1985 Hounds of Love album.

“Running Up That Hill”

It doesn’t hurt me.
Do you want to feel how it feels?
Do you want to know that it doesn’t hurt me?
Do you want to hear about the deal that I’m making?
You, it’s you and me.And if I only could,
I’d make a deal with God,
And I’d get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
Be running up that building.
If I only could, oh…You don’t want to hurt me,
But see how deep the bullet lies.
Unaware I’m tearing you asunder.
Ooh, there is thunder in our hearts.

Is there so much hate for the ones we love?
Tell me, we both matter, don’t we?
You, it’s you and me.
It’s you and me won’t be unhappy.

And if I only could,
I’d make a deal with God,
And I’d get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
Be running up that building,
Say, if I only could, oh…

You,
It’s you and me,
It’s you and me won’t be unhappy.

“C’mon, baby, c’mon darling,
Let me steal this moment from you now.
C’mon, angel, c’mon, c’mon, darling,
Let’s exchange the experience, oh…”

And if I only could,
I’d make a deal with God,
And I’d get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
With no problems.

And if I only could,
I’d make a deal with God,
And I’d get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
With no problems.

And if I only could,
I’d make a deal with God,
And I’d get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
With no problems.

If I only could
Be running up that hill
With no problems…

“If I only could, I’d be running up that hill.
If I only could, I’d be running up that hill.”

Writer Kate Bush

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Nice choice – love the video…nicely choreographed! 😊

  2. I tried running down a hill once and I tripped and smashed my face up and although running up a hill takes more physical exertion, it allows you more control and less chance of getting hurt. I liked this song, thanks for adding it.

  3. A.C. Melody says:

    Great minds think alike! I chose Placebo’s cover of this song for my pick – great choice! This is actually my first time hearing Kate Bush’s original version. Thanks for sharing. πŸ™‚

  4. J-Dub says:

    Nice choice! New to me.

    I was so sure Ain’t No Mountain High Enough would be chosen but I haven’t seen it yet.

  5. msjadeli says:

    I like Kate Bush’ voice and the video was good. Nice selection!

  6. blindzanygirl says:

    Love Kate Bush. Brilliant song

    • I remember her Wuthering Heights. I can’t remember if I saw the film to understand the song and then read the book, or read the book and then saw the film! It was Merle Oberon and Laurence Olivier anyway.

  7. This was a great choice! I remember this one πŸ™‚
