The Kent-born Kate Bush pays homage to her home country in "Oh England, My Lionheart," which also inspired the album title. "It's really very much a song about the Old England that we all think about whenever we're away," she explained while promoting the album. "You know, 'ah, the wonderful England' and how beautiful it is amongst all the rubbish, you know. Like the old buildings we've got, the Old English attitudes that are always around. And this sort of very heavy emphasis on nostalgia that is very strong in England. People really do it a lot, you know, like 'I remember the war and...'' You know it's very much a part of our attitudes to life that we live in the past. And it's really just a sort of poetical play on the, if you like, the romantic visuals of England, and the second World War... Amazing revolution that happened when it was over and peaceful everything seemed, like the green fields. And it's really just an exploration of that."
