„Take away the love and the anger,
And a little piece of hope holding us together.
Looking for a moment that'll never happen,
Living in the gap between past and future.“

—  Kate Bush British recording artist; singer, songwriter, musician and record producer 1958

Song lyrics, The Sensual World (1989)
Контексте: Take away the love and the anger,
And a little piece of hope holding us together.
Looking for a moment that'll never happen,
Living in the gap between past and future.
Take away the stone and the timber,
And a little piece of rope won't hold it together.
