Love and Anger

Album: The Sensual World (1989)
Charted: 38
  • It lay buried here, it lay deep inside me
    It's so deep I don't think that I can speak about it
    It could take me all of my life
    But it would only take a moment to

    Tell you what I'm feeling
    But I don't know if I'm ready yet
    You come walking into this room
    Like you're walking into my arms
    What would I do without you?

    Take away the love and the anger
    And a little piece of hope holding us together
    Looking for a moment that'll never happen
    Living in the gap between past and future
    Take away the stone and the timber
    And a little piece of rope won't hold it together

    If you can't tell your sister
    If you can't tell a priest
    'Cause it's so deep you don't think that you can speak about it
    To anyone
    And you tell it to your heart?
    Can you find it in your heart

    To let go of these feelings
    Like a bell to a Southerly wind?
    We could be like two strings beating
    Speaking in sympathy
    What would we do without you?

    Two strings speak in sympathy

    Take away the love and the anger
    And a little piece of hope holding us together
    Looking for a moment that'll never happen
    Living in the gap between past and future
    Take away the stone and the timber
    And a little piece of rope won't hold it together
    We're building a house of the future together
    (What would we do without you?)

    Well, if it's so deep you don't think that you can speak about it
    Just remember to reach out and touch the past and the future
    Well, if it's so deep you don't think you can speak about it
    Don't ever think that you can't change the past and the future

    You might not, not think so now
    But just you wait and see, someone will come to help you Writer/s: KATE BUSH
