  • Lyrics
  • With her hand in his hand
    They were both happy again
    You started taking sides
    They started arguing
    He said it was her fault
    She said it wasn't at all
    But the truth lies somewhere in the middle
    Where angels fear to tread you go rushing in

    Well I had to tell you then
    And now I'm telling you again
    Stay out of this
    You must not interfere
    Don't you see this is
    Between a man and a woman?

    Every day and night I pray
    And pray that you will stay away forever
    It's so hard for love to stay together
    With the modern Western pressures
    I don't want to say it
    But I had to tell you then

    And now I'm telling you again
    Stay out of this
    Oh, I know you mean to help me
    And I know you've good intentions
    But stay out of this
    This isn't your problem
    Do not interfere, you are not needed here

    Let the pendulum swing
    Between a man and a woman
    Don't you see you're in the way
    Between a man and a woman
    Every day and night I pray
    Let the pendulum swing
    Between a man and a woman
    Between a man and a womanWriter/s: KATE BUSH

When you free your mind, your ass may follow, but you have to make sure someone else doesn't program it while it's wide open.
