NOBODY KNOWS FOR SURE
Just wanted to post this as I love the lyrics.

KATE BUSH - FULLHOUSE


Driving back in her car.
Watching the wipers
Squashing the leaves away.
Suddenly there in the road
Is your old self,
Trying to get out of the rain.

I am my enemy
Mowing me over,
And towing the light away.
Somehow it just seems to fit
With that old me,
Trying to get back again.

Imagination sets in.
Then all the voices begin.
Telling you things that aren't happening.
(But they nig and they nag, 'til they're under your skin.)

(You've really got to)
Remember yourself.
You've got a Full House in your head tonight
(You've got to, you've got to)
Remember yourself.
Stand back and see emotion getting you uptight.

My silly pride
Digging the knife in.
She loves to come for her ride.
Surely by now I should know
I can control
My highs and my lows

By questioning all that I do,
Examining every move,
Trying to get back to the rudiments.
(If they nig and they nag, I'll just put in the boot.)

(You've really got to)
Remember yourself.
You've got a Full House in your head tonight
(You've got to, you've got to)
Remember yourself.
Stand back and see emotion getting you uptight.

Remember yourself.
You've got a Full House in your head tonight
(You've got to, you've got to)
Remember yourself.
Stand back and see emotion getting you uptight.

hello...thanks for sharing...

It...
Is... a great reminder indeed...
To reconnect...
To our inner sanctuary...
At times...
And...
To muffle...
The air...we hear...
Sometimes...doubt...
Becomes its power...
And...
We transgress....
As the song says...
We...are the power ...
Of...
Self...
However...
Sometimes...
Help is needed...
And...
It is no shame...
to ask...
I have learned...
To ask...
If needed...
and...
give thanks...
to those who helped...
my need...
in...my time...
of...
need...
Softwhisper in reflection to your song...

Nice! Very interesting that Kate Bush writes so knowledgeably about the experience - or is she being metaphorical?

I...can not speak...
For...
Kate...
Metaphors...
Are predominate...
In song writing...
I take a great interest...
In lyrics...
To ponder...
When...
Music is involved...
To my mind...
Conjures...
Self...talking...
To...what...i call...
Higher self...
Some say God... Creator...Buddha...
Now...
I do not believe...
For one minute...
That...
Self...
With writing lyrics...
Has anyone else...
But...
Their own value to the writing at mind...
Self talk...
Is great talk...
I for one think self...talking to self...
Is a complete understanding...
Of...
What...
Ever...is occurring at the time...
I do haste to add...
‘voice’ can...take away...selfs own right to thought...
Now ...i have my own belief...
Nods as good as...
A wink or so to speak...
But others...
Kate...
Would simply think...
A good reflection...as to how i felt at the time of writing...
And...
The answer...
Wink...
Answers...
Metaphors...
Yes...
An other word...to my mind...
Reflection...
I do hope the lass...
That picked...kates song...
Saw her reflection there...
And...
Decided...
Be gone...
Noisy head...
Who’s life is this anyways...
Blessings softwhisper
