Kate Bush: «Wuthering Heights»

«Wuthering Heights» var den britiske sangerens debutsingel fra henes første plate The Kick Inside, som kom ut i 1978. Den ble deretter utgitt på nytt i 1986, på «best of»-plata The Whole Story. Sangteksten er basert på romanen med samme navn skrevet av Emily Brontë.

Wuthering Heights, eller Stormfulle høyder som den heter på norsk, regnes i dag som en klassiker innen britisk litteratur. Historien om Heathcliff og stesøsteren Catherine er dessuten blitt kjent gjennom flere filmatiseringer. Best kjent av disse er muligens versjonen fra 1939, med Laurence Olivier i rollen som Heathcliff.

Kate Bush’ sang er i hvert fall nydelig, så her er den:

Wuthering Heights

av Kate Bush

Out on the wild and windy moors
We’d roll and fall in green.
You had a temper like my jealousy:
Too hot, too greedy.
How could you leave me,
When I needed to possess you?
I hated you. I loved you, too.

Bad dreams in the night.
You told me I was going to lose the fight,
Leave behind my wuthering, wuthering
Wuthering Heights.

Heathcliff, it’s me, your Cathy, I’ve come home. I’m so cold,
let me in at your window.

Heathcliff, it’s me, your Cathy, I’ve come home. I’m so cold,
let me in at your window.

Ooh, it gets dark! It gets lonely,
On the other side from you.
I pine a lot. I find a lot
Falls through without you.
I’m coming back, love.
Cruel Heathcliff, my one dream,
My only master.

Too long I roam in the night.
I’m coming back to his side, to put it right.
I’m coming home to wuthering, wuthering,
Wuthering Heights,

Heathcliff, it’s me, your Cathy, I’ve come home. I’m so cold,
let me in at your window.

Heathcliff, it’s me, your Cathy, I’ve come home. I’m so cold,
let me in at your window.

Ooh! Let me have it.
Let me grab your soul away.
Ooh! Let me have it.
Let me grab your soul away.
You know it’s me–Cathy!

Heathcliff, it’s me, your Cathy, I’ve come home. I’m so cold,
let me in at your window.

Heathcliff, it’s me, your Cathy, I’ve come home. I’m so cold,
let me in at your window.
Heathcliff, it’s me, your Cathy, I’ve come home. I’m so cold,
let me in at your window.

Heathcliff, it’s me, your Cathy, I’ve come home. I’m so cold,
let me in at your window.
