Misty
Kate Bush Lyrics


Roll his body.
Give him eyes.
Make him smile for me,
Give him life.

My hand is bleeding, I run back inside.
I turn off the light,
Switch on a starry night.
My window flies open.

My bedroom fills with falling snow,
Should be a dream but I'm not sleepy.
I see his snowy white face but I'm not afraid.
He lies down beside me.

So cold next to me.
I can feel him melting in my hand.
Melting, in my hand.
He won't speak to me.

His crooked mouth is full of dead leaves.
Full of dead leaves, bits of twisted branches and frozen garden,
crushed and stolen grasses from slumbering lawn.
He is dissolving, dissolving before me and dawn will come soon.

What kind of spirit is this?
Our one and only tryst.
His breath all misty,
And when I kiss his ice-cream lips

And his creamy skin,
His snowy white arms surround me.
So cold next to me.
I can feel him melting in my hand.

Melting, melting, in my hand.
Sunday morning.
I can't find him.
The sheets are soaking

And on my pillow:
Dead leaves, bits of twisted branches and frozen garden,
crushed and stolen grasses from slumbering lawn.
I can't find him - Misty

Oh please can you help me?
He must be somewhere.
Open window closing,
Oh but wait, it's still snowing.

If you're out there,
I'm coming out on the ledge.
I'm going out on the ledge.

Lyrics from Genius.com

[Verse 1]
Roll his body
Give him eyes
Make him smile for me
Give him life
My hand is bleeding
I run back inside

[Verse 2]
I turn off the light
Switch on a starry night
My window flies open
My bedroom fills with falling snow
Should be a dream, but I'm not sleepy
I see his snowy white face, but I'm not afraid
He lies down beside me

[Verse 3]
So cold next to me
I can feel him melting in my hand
Melting, in my hand

[Verse 4]
He won't speak to me
His crooked mouth is full of dead leaves
Full of dead leaves
Bits of twisted branches and frozen garden
Crushed and stolen grasses from slumbering lawn
He is dissolving, dissolving before me
And dawn will come soon

[Verse 5]
What kind of spirit is this?
Our one and only tryst
His breath all misty
And when I kiss his ice-cream lips
And his creamy skin
His snowy white arms surround me

[Verse 6]
So cold next to me
I can feel him melting in my hand, melting
Melting, in my hand

[Verse 7]
Sunday morning
I can't find him
The sheets are soaking
And on my pillow
Dead leaves
Bits of twisted branches and frozen garden
Crushed and stolen grasses from slumbering lawn

[Verse 8]
I can't find him
Misty...
Oh, please, can you help me?
He must be somewhere
Open window closing
Oh but wait, it's still snowing
If you're out there
I'm coming out on the ledge
I'm going out on the ledge

this song has a wonderful raw texture from her voice, not our normal kate. imo 50 words compiles some of the best songwriting and music kate has produced. this is my favorite piece on the album, among angels second. these compositions are so different from earlier kate. one must really respect an artist that can evolve so much and still produce such excellent pieces. i was lucky to see kate in 2014 at hammersmith all the way from california and anyone who attended im sure would agree kate is simply a remarkable artist. obscure, remarkable.

Antonio Furi

it's a so particular,intimiste and remarkable piece...

Andrea Guerra

One of the most stunning, poetic, breathtaking pieces of music I've ever heard in my life. She's amazing beyond belief.

brando200012

It catches you for all his minutes. This is why she is the queen of interpretation .and complete artist

The best cut on the album. Beautiful. Got a wonderful hypnotic jazz feel almost to it. And Kate's voice. Could listen to this track for hours. You almost never want it to end. Like a lot of Kate's work.

Test Goober

This is one of those songs that should never end. It just keeps getting deeper and deeper.

Não sei de nada

I'm going to listen to this until the day I die and it will still sound fresh and unbelievably beautiful.

Lewis Bavin

Roll his Body.
Give him eyes
Make him smile for me
Give him life.

Such simple lyrics but the way she emotes is insanely powerful.

This song,this whole album,is something I could sit back on,and crack a bottle of bourbon and take my day in,and enjoy,over and over again.

Trevor Fisher
