„There is magic within
There is magic without
Follow me and you'll learn
Just what life's all about.“

—  Kate Bush

Song lyrics, Singles and rarities
Contesto: When the fantasy bells
Of the universe ring
You can fly through the sky
On a dragonfly's wing.
There is magic within
There is magic without
Follow me and you'll learn
Just what life's all about.

„On top of the world,
Looking over the edge,
You could see them coming.“

—  Kate Bush

Song lyrics, Hounds of Love (1985)
Contesto: On top of the world,
Looking over the edge,
You could see them coming.
You looked too small
In their big, black car,
To be a threat to the men in power.

„I was trying to say that, really, a man and a woman, can't understand each other because we are a man and a woman. And if we could actually swap each other's roles, if we could actually be in each other's place for a while, I think we'd both be very surprised! … And I think it would lead to a greater understanding.“

—  Kate Bush

On her song "Running Up That Hill (A Deal with God)", in a Radio 1 Classic Albums interview with Richard Skinner (26 January 1992) http://gaffa.org/cloud/music/running_up_that_hill.html
Contesto: I was trying to say that, really, a man and a woman, can't understand each other because we are a man and a woman. And if we could actually swap each other's roles, if we could actually be in each other's place for a while, I think we'd both be very surprised! … And I think it would lead to a greater understanding. And really the only way I could think it could be done was either... you know, I thought a deal with the devil, you know. And I thought, "well, no, why not a deal with God!" You know, because in a way it's so much more powerful the whole idea of asking God to make a deal with you. You see, for me it is still called "Deal With God", that was its title. But we were told that if we kept this title that it would not be played in any of the religious countries, Italy wouldn't play it, France wouldn't play it, and Australia wouldn't play it! Ireland wouldn't play it, and that generally we might get it blacked purely because it had God in the title.

„All we ever look for — a god.
All we ever look for — ooh, a drug.
All we ever look for — a great big hug.“

—  Kate Bush

Song lyrics, Never for Ever (1980)
Contesto: All we ever look for — a god.
All we ever look for — ooh, a drug.
All we ever look for — a great big hug.
All we ever look for — a little bit of you.
All we ever look for — a little bit of you, too.
All we ever look for,
But we never do score.

„I want to be in a position where I can function as a human being. Even more so now where you've got this sort of truly silly preoccupation with celebrities. Just because somebody's been in an ad on TV, so what? Who gives a toss?“

—  Kate Bush

MOJO interview (2005)
Contesto: For the last 12 years, I've felt really privileged to be living such a normal life. It's so a part of who I am. It's so important to me to do the washing, do the Hoovering. Friends of mine in the business don't know how dishwashers work. For me, that's frightening. I want to be in a position where I can function as a human being. Even more so now where you've got this sort of truly silly preoccupation with celebrities. Just because somebody's been in an ad on TV, so what? Who gives a toss?

„Only tragedy allows the release
Of love and grief never normally seen.“

—  Kate Bush

Song lyrics, The Dreaming (1982)
Contesto: Only tragedy allows the release
Of love and grief never normally seen.
I didn't want to let them see me weep,
I didn't want to let them see me weak,
But I know I have shown
That I stand at the gates alone.

„The great thing about art on any level is that it can speak to all people if it’s achieved properly.“

—  Kate Bush

As quoted in "In conversation with Kate Bush" by Elio Iannacci in MacLeans (28 November 2016)
Contesto: The great thing about art on any level is that it can speak to all people if it’s achieved properly. When I’ve heard a piece of music or seen a painting that moves me, it gives me something. That’s such an incredibly special experience. I have intentions as a writer, but people — when they’re listening to a track — will take from it what they interpret. Sometimes people mishear my lyrics and think a song’s about something it isn’t. That doesn’t matter. If it speaks to them and they get something positive from it, it’s great.

„I'm really very happy if people can connect at all to anything I do. I don't really mind if people mishear lyrics or misunderstand what the story is. I think that's what you have to let go of when you send it out in the world.“

—  Kate Bush

As quoted in "Kate Bush Speaks" by Owen Myers in Fader (23 November 2016)
Contesto: I'm really very happy if people can connect at all to anything I do. I don't really mind if people mishear lyrics or misunderstand what the story is. I think that's what you have to let go of when you send it out in the world. I'm sure with a lot of paintings, people don't understand what the painter originally meant, and I don't really think that matters. I just think if you feel something, that's really the ideal goal. If that happens, then I'm really happy.

„The civilised keep alive
The territorial war…“

—  Kate Bush

Song lyrics, The Dreaming (1982)

The territorial war…
Erase the race that claim the place
And say we dig for ore,
Or dangle devils in a bottle
And push them from the pull of the Bush.

Give me deeper understanding…“

Not until I'm ready for you
Can I have it all.“

Am I suspended in Gaffa?
Not until I'm ready for you,

For all of the guilty — to set them free.
Wings fill the window,
And they beat and bleed.“

—  Kate Bush

Song lyrics, The Dreaming (1982)
Contesto: In Malta, catch a swallow,
For all of the guilty — to set them free.
Wings fill the window,
And they beat and bleed.
They hold the sky on the other side
Of borderlines.

These moments given
Are a gift from time.Just let us try

„Is there so much hate for the ones we love?
Tell me, we both matter, don't we?“

—  Kate Bush

Song lyrics, Hounds of Love (1985)

Tell me, we both matter, don't we?
You, it's you and me.
It's you and me won't be unhappy.
