The Sensual World



O tema "The Sensual World", de Kate Bush, foi originalmente escrito a partir do solilóquio de Molly Bloom do "Ulisses", de James Joyce. Embora a cantora tenha tido de reescrever a letra por ver negada a permissão autoral para lançar a canção conforme o original, conseguiu ainda assim manter o devaneio erótico dos últimos pensamentos de Molly.

Mmh, yes,

Then I'd taken the kiss of seedcake back from his
mouth
Going deep South, go down, mmh, yes,
Took six big wheels and rolled our bodies
Off of Howth Head and into the flesh, mmh, yes,
He said I was a flower of the mountain, yes,
But now I've powers o'er a woman's body - yes.
Stepping out of the page into the sensual world.
Stepping out.............
To where the water and the earth caress
And the down of a peach says mmh, yes.
Do I look for those millionaires
Like a Machiavellian girl would?
When I could wear a sunset, mmh, yes,
And how we'd wished to live in the sensual world.
You don't need words - just one kiss, then another.

Stepping out of the page into the sensual world.
Stepping out, off the page into the sensual world,
And then our arrows of desire rewrite the speech, mmh, yes,
And then he whispered would I, mmh, yes,
Be safe, mmh, yes, from mountain flowers?
And at first with the charm around him, mmh, yes,

He loosened it so if it slipped between my breasts
He'd rescue it, mmh, yes,
And his spark took life in my hand, mmh, yes,
I said, mmh, yes,
But not yet, mmh, yes,
Mmh, yes....
