Η αγωνία ενός μικρού παιδιού για τη μαγεία που χάνεται, μέσα από τα μάτια ενός ενήλικου που την έχει ξανακερδίσει.
Μόνο κάποια σαν την Kate Bush θα μπορούσε να έχει γράψει αυτό το τραγούδι. Βρίσκεται στο άλμπουμ της ‘Lionheart’ [1978]

A little child’s agony for the magic that’ s being lost, through the eyes of an adult who has won it back.
Only someone like Kate Bush could have written this song. It is on her album ‘Lionheart’ [1978]

◼︎

It’s been such a long week
So much crying
I no longer see a future
I’ve been told when I get older
That I’ll understand it all
But I’m not sure if I want to
Running into her arms
At the school gates
She whispers that I’m a poor kid
And Granny takes me on her knee
She tells me I’m too sensitive
She makes me sad
She makes me feel like an old man
She makes me feel like an old man
They took the game right out of it
They took the game right out of it
When I am a man
I will be an astronaut
And find Peter Pan
Second star on the right
Straight on ’til morning
Second star on the right
Straight on ’til morning
Dennis loves to look
In the mirror
He tells me that he is beautiful
So I look too, and what do I see?
My eyes are full
But my face is empty
He’s got a photo
Of his hero
He keeps it under his pillow
But I’ve got a pin-up
From a newspaper
Of Peter Pan
I found it in a locket
I hide it in my pocket
They took the game right out of it
They took the game right out of it
When I am a man
I will be an astronaut
And find Peter Pan
Second star on the right
Straight on ’til morning
Second star on the right
Straight on ’til morning
Second star on the right
Straight on ’til morning
“When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true

and this, inspired by the song, from me:

Enjoy!

and

Stay Safe!

        • A ha ha, no I am not! One of my favorite songs is in Lionheart: Wow. From other albums: Breathing, Moving, The Dreaming …you’d think it’s the titles but I loved them before knowing the title! 😉 I adore the Hounds of love album cover!!!! Kick Inside would be the first I’d choose and her more recent Aerial was also a good album. Happy listening!
