  • Some moments that I've had
    Some moments of pleasure

    I think about us lying
    Lying on a beach somewhere
    I think about us diving
    Diving off a rock, into another moment

    The case of George the Wipe
    Oh God I can't stop laughing
    This sense of humor of mine
    It isn't funny at all
    Oh but we sit up all night
    Talking about it

    Just being alive
    It can really hurt
    And these moments given
    Are a gift from time

    On a balcony in New York
    It's just started to snow
    He meets us at the lift
    Like Douglas Fairbanks
    Waving his walking stick
    But he isn't well at all
    The buildings of New York
    Look just like mountains through the snow

    Just being alive
    It can really hurt
    And these moments given
    Are a gift from time
    Just let us try
    To give these moments back
    To those we love
    To those who will survive

    And I can hear my mother saying
    "Every old sock meets an old shoe"
    Isn't that a great saying?
    "Every old sock meets an old shoe"
    Here come the Hills of Time

    Hey there Maureen,

    Hey there Bubba,
    Dancing down the aisle of a plane,

    'S Murph, playing his guitar refrain,

    Hey there Teddy,
    Spinning in the chair at Abbey Road,

    Hey there Michael,
    Do you really love me?

    Hey there Bill,
    Could you turn the lights up? Writer/s: KATE BUSH
