Kate Bush: Be Kind To My Mistakes

Hearing this new Kate Bush song makes me sad in a way because I remember talking to my friend Rudy (a Kate fan) about "Eat The Music" (love the lyric, hate the song) in 1993. Poor Rudy died less than a tear later.

Anyway...Perhaps my favorite Kate song is the one below. The lyric to this is the kind that gets you through.... sorry if it doesn't read as impressively as it sounds. The song was originally released as a b-side for the "Sensual World" single, but since that time it has been released again on the Hounds Of Love remaster. Do you all know this song?

"Be Kind To My Mistakes"

It is this that brings us together
It is this that brings us together

It's alright darling, we can do this together
It's alright darling, I can think of nothing better
I don't know you, and you don't know me
It is this that brings us together

I don't know what you are looking for in me
I don't know what I want, but my heart is leading

Am I yours?
Are you mine?
We'll find all we're meant to find
In your life
In my life
There are secrets too dark
To let out
To let go of
To get over

But that's alright baby
Oh that's alright by me
Yes it's alright, now

Just let me say please, please, please
Please be kind
Be kind to my mistakes
Be kind
Be kind to me

It's a major song - don't be fooled by the b-side status. Find it!
