We let so many dreams just slip through our hands
Why must we wait so long, before we see?
How sad the answers to those questions can be..."

from "Running Up That Hill" by Kate Bush
Album: "Hounds of Love" - 1985
Kate Bush has said: "I was trying to say that, really, a man and a woman, can't understand each other because we are a man and a woman. And if we could actually swap each other's roles, if we could actually be in each other's place for a while, I think we'd both be very surprised!..."

The dream of lasting peace,
Rule of international morality
Will remain in but a fleeting illusion to be pursued,
But never attained
Now everywhere is war - war..."

The lyrics are almost literally derived from a speech made by Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie I before the United Nations General Assembly in 1963.

And there have been some that I've broken
But I swear in the days still left
We'll walk in fields of gold..."
