A Coral Room Lyrics - Kate Bush

Review The Song (2)

There's a city, draped in net
Fisherman net
And in the half light, in the half light
It looks like every tower
Is covered in webs
Moving and glistening and rocking
Its babies in rhythm
As the spider of time is climbing
Over the ruins

There were hundreds of people living here
Sails at the windows
And the planes came crashing down
And many a pilot drowned
And the speed boats flying above
Put your hand over the side of the boat
What do you feel?

My mother and her little brown jug
It held her milk
And now it holds our memories
I can hear her singing
“Little brown jug don't I love thee”
“Little brown jug don't I love thee”
Ho ho ho, hee hee hee

I hear her laughing
She is standing in the kitchen
As we come in the back door
See it fall
See it fall
Oh little spider climbing out of a broken jug
And the pieces will lay there a while
In a house draped in net
In a room filled with coral
Sails at the window
Forests of masts
Put your hand over the side of the boat
Put your hand over the side of the boat

And what do you feel?

I have adopted Kate Bush as my "primal mother" | Reviewer: Gerald Long | 1/26/12

This is a beautiful and sad song and tear provoking. Kate Bush has the uncanny ability to touch the passion and pain and romance we all feel in our lives from time to time. If I ever have to be reborn I hope I hear her voice next to my cradle. Whenever the pain from this life overwhelms me I listen to her and am reminded there is real beauty in living and in the soul. IMHO Kate Bush is quite simply the loveliest creature to ever exist...a real angel brought to life at God's whim. Perfections and beauty made flesh! She has been here forever. Can you feel it?

This is now without doubt my favourite Kate Bush song. What beautiful lyrics and what an amazing way to convey how she feels about the death of her mother. This is my favourite song because of its simplicity and the fact that i can clearly feel her pain, so much so that i cant listen to this song without being reduced to floods of tears... it works everytime!

The bit in the middle about the brown jug and the memory of her laughing in the kitchen... so sad and so painful. Genius though!
