Kate Bush - Running Up That Hill

| Kerri

It doesn't hurt me.
Do you want to feel how it feels?
Do you want to 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.
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.

What a moving song. Released in 1985 to popular success and critical acclaim, nevertheless I always felt it was a track ahead of it's time. Fast forward about twenty years and the perfect remake came out. I've been debating for a long time, which to put on TMIS: Kate Bush or Placebo version? Went with Kate because she wrote it, and she's a legend. Bonus Placebo attached though.
