About Running Up That Hill

"Running Up That Hill" is a song by the English singer-songwriter Kate Bush. It was the first single from her 1985 album Hounds of Love, released in the United Kingdom on 5 August 1985. It was her first 12-inch single. It was the most successful of Bush's 1980s releases, entering the UK chart at number 9 and eventually peaking at number 3, her second-highest single peak. The single also had an impact in the United States, providing Bush with her first chart hit there since 1978, where it reached the top 30 and featured prominently in the Dance Charts. Bush also performed the song live for the first time with David Gilmour of Pink Floyd at the Secret Policeman's Third Ball in 1987. The song's title for Hounds of Love and all subsequent releases was "Running Up That Hill (A Deal with God)". The B-side of the 7-inch single contains Bush's song "Under the Ivy". The 12-inch single contains an extended remix and an instrumental version of "Running Up That Hill", as well as "Under the Ivy". A limited 7-inch single gatefold sleeve edition was also released.

It doesn't hurt me
Do you want to feel how it feels? 
Do you want to know, know that it doesn't hurt me? 
Do you want to hear about the deal that I'm making? 
You, it's you and me

And if I only could
I'd make a deal with God
And I'd get him to swap our places
Be running up that road
Be running up that hill
Be running up that building 
See if I only could, oh

You don't want to hurt me 
But see how deep the bullet lies
Unaware I'm tearing you asunder 
Ooh, there is thunder in our hearts

Is there so much hate for the ones we love? 
Tell me, we both matter, don't we? 
You, it's you and me
It's you and me, won't be unhappy

And if I only could 
I'd make a deal with God
And I'd get him to swap our places
Be running up that road
Be running up that hill
Be running up that building 
Say, if I only could, oh

You 
It's you and me
It's you and me, won't be unhappy

Oh come on, baby
Oh come on, darling 
Let me steal this moment from you now
Oh come on, angel
Come on, come on, darling 
Let's exchange the experience, oh

And if I only could
I'd make a deal with God 
And I'd get him to swap our places 
I'd be running up that road
Be running up that hill 
With no problems

Say, if I only could
I'd make a deal with God 
And I'd get him to swap our places
I'd be running up that road
Be running up that hill
With no problems

So if I only could 
I'd make a deal with God
And I'd get him to swap our places
I'd be running up that road
Be running up that hill
With no problems 

Say, if I only could 
I'd be running up that hill 
With no problems

(If I only could, I'd be running up that hill)
(If I only could, I'd be running up that hill)
