Kate Bush – Flower Of The Mountain lyrics

Yes, first I gave him the bit of seedcake out of my mouth
And it was leap year like now yes
16 years ago my God
After that long kiss I near lost my breath yes
He said I was a flower of the mountain yes
So we are flowers all a woman’s body yes

Stepping out of the page into the sensual world...
Stepping out...

And Gibraltar as a girl where I was a Flower of the mountain yes
When I put the rose in my hair like the Andalusian girls used
Or shall I wear a red yes
And how he kissed me under the Moorish wall and
I thought well as well him as another

Stepping out of the page into the sensual world...
Stepping out of the page into the sensual world...

And then I asked him with my eyes to ask again yes
And then he asked me would I yes
To say yes my mountain flower
And first I put my arms around him yes
And drew him down to me so he could feel my breasts
All perfume yes
And his heart was going like mad and yes
I said yes
I will Yes.
