Never Be Mine

Album: The Sensual World (1989)
  • I look at you and see
    My life that might have been
    Your face just ghostly in the smoke
    They're setting fire to the cornfields
    As you're taking me home
    The smell of burning fields
    Will now mean you and here

    And this is where I want to be
    This is what I need
    This is where I want to be
    This is what I need
    This is where I want to be
    But I know that this will never be mine

    Ooh, the thrill and the hurting
    The thrill and the hurting
    I know that this will never be mine

    I want you as the dream
    Not the reality
    That clumsy goodbye kiss could fool me
    But I'm looking back over my shoulder
    At you, happy without me

    This is where I want to be
    This is what I need
    This is where I want to be
    This is what I need
    This is where I want to be
    But I know that this will never be mine

    Ooh, the thrill and the hurting
    Will never be mine

    The thrill and the hurting

    It will never be mine
    It can never be
    The thrill and the hurting
    Will never be mine Writer/s: KATE BUSH
