Kate Bush – Under The Ivy lyrics

It wouldn't take me long
To tell you how to find it
To tell you where we'll meet
This little girl inside me
Is retreating to her favourite place
Go into the garden, go under the ivy
Under the leaves, away from the party
Go right to the rose
Go right to the white rose
I sit here in the thunder
The green on the gray
I feel it all around me
And it's not easy for me
To give away a secret
It's not safe
To go into the garden, go under the ivy
Under the leaves, away from the party
Go right to the rose
Go right to the white rose
Go into the garden, go under the ivy
Go under the leaves with me
Go right to the rose
Go right to the white rose
I'll be waiting for you
It wouldn't take me long
To tell you how to find it

    Kate said the song was about the secret where old lovers met in the past. In my last post I forgot the very important point. But I do wonder if that wasn't a place that had special meaning. Perhaps green is the true love she is finding anew that had (gray) died out long ago. Fear of the lost love going away could set the tone of these few but powerful lyrics that stick so well to my memories.
