"Wuthering Heights" as written by and Kate / Bush....
Out on the wiley, windy moors
We'd roll and fall in green.
You had a temper like my jealousy:
Too hot, too greedy.
How could you leave me,
When I needed to possess you?
I hated you. I loved you, too.

Bad dreams in the night.
They told me I was going to lose the fight,
Leave behind my wuthering, wuthering
Wuthering Heights.

Heathcliff, it's me--Cathy.
Come home. I'm so cold!
Let me in-a-your window.

Heathcliff, it's me--Cathy.
Come home. I'm so cold!
Let me in-a-your window.

Ooh, it gets dark! It gets lonely,
On the other side from you.
I pine a lot. I find the lot
Falls through without you.
I'm coming back, love.
Cruel Heathcliff, my one dream,
My only master.

Too long I roam in the night.
I'm coming back to his side, to put it right.
I'm coming home to wuthering, wuthering,
Wuthering Heights,

Heathcliff, it's me--Cathy.
Come home. I'm so cold!
Let me in-a-your window.

Heathcliff, it's me--Cathy.
Come home. I'm so cold!
Let me in-a-your window.

Ooh! Let me have it.
Let me grab your soul away.
Ooh! Let me have it.
Let me grab your soul away.
You know it's me--Cathy!

Heathcliff, it's me--Cathy.
Come home. I'm so cold!
Let me in-a-your window.

Heathcliff, it's me--Cathy.
Come home. I'm so cold!
Let me in-a-your window.

Heathcliff, it's me--Cathy.
Come home. I'm so cold!

    General CommentFor the literary challanged, "Wuthering Heights" is a novel by Emily Bronte published in the mid 1800's. The story tells of the doomed relationship between Catherine and Heathcliff. Early in the tale, it's suggested Catherines spirit still roams Wuthering Heights, knocking at the windows, trying to get in.

    Good material for a song, but it sounds a bit too pop for my tastes. There's nothing haunting or lost here. The lyrics require much more care and treatment. Curious what another singers take would song like.

    General CommentDon't know 'bout Kate Bush, but I do know Pat had this on her 1980 album 'Crimes of Passion'. One of my favorites from that LP.

    General CommentYeah, it's definitely a Kate Bush original. The song 'Wuthering Heights' first appeared on the 1978 album 'The Kick Inside'. And this song is brilliant... what's amazing is Kate Bush wrote the song only after having seen the 1939 film with Merle Oberon and Laurence Olivier - never once opening the book. That's a testament to how great the film is and to how talented and insightful Kate is as an artist.
    Pat Benatar's version is great - it stands on its own but is also an outstanding tribute to the original... love it.
