Wuthering Heights
Kate Bush Lyrics


Out on the wiley, windy moors
We'd roll and fall in green
You had a temper like my jealousy
Too hot, too greedy
How could you leave me
When I needed to possess you?
I hated you, I loved you, too

Bad dreams in the night
They told me I was going to lose the fight
Leave behind my Wuthering, Wuthering
Wuthering Heights

Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy
I've come home, I'm so cold
Let me in your window

Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy
I've come home, I'm so cold
Let me in your window

Ooh, it gets dark, it gets lonely
On the other side from you
I pine a lot, I find the lot
Falls through without you
I'm coming back, love
Cruel Heathcliff, my one dream
My only master

Too long I roam in the night
I'm coming back to his side, to put it right
I'm coming home to Wuthering, Wuthering
Wuthering Heights

Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy
I've come home, I'm so cold
Let me in your window

Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy
I've come home, I'm so cold
Let me in your window

Ooh, let me have it
Let me grab your soul away
Ooh, let me have it
Let me grab your soul away
You know it's me, Cathy

Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy
I've come home, I'm so cold
Let me in your window

Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy
I've come home, I'm so cold
Let me in your window

Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy
I've come home, I'm so cold

this song and Kate's performance was so unique.
I remember this song well. It was just so different to anything else at the time.
Calming yet almost evil and haunting in parts.

Those pitch changes are amazing. From a high pitch soprano then instantly dropping to a lower register.
I particularly love her delivery of those couple of lines
from the high pitch soprano - "how could you leave me, when I needed to, possess you"
and then the instant low register 'I hated you'

Such a theatrical, emotional performance. Great song, even greater artist.

I will never ever get over the fact that Kate wrote this at 18 years old in one evening and also recorded these vocals in one take... I feel blessed we got to be on the planet at the same time as her.

When art possess you in that instantaneously moment regardless of discipline.

A teenage girl so affected by a book written in the 1850s (ish) she composes and performs a musical and visual masterpiece retelling the story 120(ish) years after the book was written.I mean it’s just unbelievable.Without Emily Brontë we would have this.I’ve never been so in awe of anything in my entire life and I’m old enough to remember this being released.Love you Kate X
