Kate Bush lehnte die Lyrics dieses Songs eng an Molly Blooms erotischem «stream of consciousness» beim Einschlafen am Ende des Ulysses von James Joyce an. Sie erhielt damals die Rechte nicht, den Text zu zitieren. Auf Directrs Cut gibt es eine Version des Songs mit dem Titel Flower of the Mountain, die auf den Joyce-Text zugreifen darf. Die Musik ist von einem Makedonsichen Brauttanz (Nevestinsko Oro) inspiriert.
