Kate Bush – The Infant Kiss lyrics

Say good night-night
I tuck him in tight.
But things are not right.

What is this? an infant kiss
That sends my body tingling?

Ive never fallen for
A little boy before.
No control.

Just a kid and just at school.
Back home theyd call me dirty.
His little hand is on my heart.
Hes got me where it hurts me.
Knock, knock. whos there in this baby?
You know how to work me.

All my barriers are going.
Its starting to show.
Let go. let go. let go.

I cannot sit and let
Something happen I'll regret.
Ooh, he scares me!

There's a man behind those eyes.
I catch him when Im bending.

Ooh, how he frightens me
When they whisper privately.
(don't let go!)
Windy-wailey blows me.

Words of caress on their lips
That speak of adult love.

I want to smack but I hold back.
I only want to touch.

But I must stay and find a way
To stop before it gets too much!

All my barriers are going.
Its starting to show.
Let go. let go. let go.
(don't let go!)
