Annotationen

Der einzige Top-40-Hit von Kate Bush in den USA. Ein Song über den Kampf um eine Beziehung, das Überwinden von Verletzungen («see how deep the bullet lies»), die Unmöglichkeit dem andern ganz nahe zu kommen. Die tribalen Beats bringen Unruhe und Spannung zum Ausdruck. Die Erzählerin bemüht sich um diese Liebe, sie würde einen Handel mit Gott machen, um die Beziehung dadurch zu retten oder stabilisieren, dass ihr Partner ihre und sie seine Position einnehmen könnte. Doch wenn man mit Gott schon keinen «Deal» machen kann, wie schwierig ist es dann für die Menschen? Beeindruckend die vielen Vocal-Overdubbs, die dem Song grosse Farbigkeit verleihen. Dagegen ist der Fairlight Synthi vergleichsweise monoton.

Lyrics

It doesn't hurt me Do you wanna feel how it feels? Do you wanna know, know that it doesn't hurt me? Do you wanna 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 wanna hurt me But see how deep the bullet lies Unaware I'm tearing you asunder Oh, there is thunder in our hearts Is there so much hate for the ones we love? Well 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 c'mon, baby, c'mon darling Let me steal this moment from you now. C'mon, angel, c'mon, c'mon, 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 See 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 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 So if I only could 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
