Running Up That Hill
Kate Bush Lyrics


It doesn't hurt me
Do you want to feel how it feels?
Do you want to know, know that it doesn't hurt me?
Do you want to hear about the deal that I'm making?
You, it's you and me

And if I only could
I'd make a deal with God
And I'd get him to swap our places
Be running up that road
Be running up that hill
Be running up that building
See if I only could, oh

You don't want to hurt me
But see how deep the bullet lies
Unaware I'm tearing you asunder
Ooh, there is thunder in our hearts

Is there so much hate for the ones we love?
Tell me, we both matter, don't we?
You, it's you and me
It's you and me, won't be unhappy

And if I only could
I'd make a deal with God
And I'd get him to swap our places
Be running up that road
Be running up that hill
Be running up that building
Say, if I only could, oh

You
It's you and me
It's you and me, won't be unhappy

Oh come on, baby
Oh come on, darling
Let me steal this moment from you now
Oh come on, angel
Come on, come on, darling
Let's exchange the experience, oh

And if I only could
I'd make a deal with God
And I'd get him to swap our places
I'd be running up that road
Be running up that hill
With no problems

Said, if I only could
I'd make a deal with God
And I'd get him to swap our places
I'd be running up that road
Be running up that hill
With no problems

So if I only could
I'd make a deal with God
And I'd get him to swap our places
I'd be running up that road
Be running up that hill
With no problems

Said, if I only could
I'd be running up that hill
With no problems

(If I only could, I'd be running up that hill)
(If I only could, I'd be running up that hill)

Same here. I’m sitting around with COVID while my partner is at her place, both watching ST, and suddenly we’re both going “KATE BUSH! What a great choice!”
We had both kinda forgotten about this song. I don’t know how.

It would take hours to express what this song means to me. Bought it on casette when it was released, bought it on CD too. I still listen to this song regularly. Love it!

Having been listening to Kate Bush since I heard her on college radio as a 14 yr old back in 1983. First song I heard was Breathing and it was amazing, still is. She's been super slept on for decades and glad that she's being discovered by a new generation. Her talent deserves it.

The Stranger Things series knows how to MAX-imize the 80s like no one else.🇧🇷🤘🏼

Stranger Things got me wishing I could go back to the 80's / 90's. Those were simpler times... Nothing was instant, and so they were special. We'd have to borrow movies, or look at TV guides and wait for it to air. We played outdoors all day, go to museums, read goosebumps and get spooked, explored nature, had group picnics, many friends, there was a real sense of community... If you liked someone you had to tell them, there was no sliding into DMs or tinder. It's so different now. I'm isolated, and just work in front of a computer, my family is abroad, most people are for themselves, and I can't say I have any friends on a rainy day. I'm grateful to Stranger Things for letting me relive some of that nostalgia.
