"Hounds of Love (Alternate)" as written by and Kate Bush....
It's in the trees
It's coming

When I was a child
Running in the night
Afraid of what might be

Hiding in the dark
Hiding in the street
And of what was following me

Now hounds of love are hunting
I've always been a coward
And I don't know what's good for me

Here I go
It's coming for me through the trees
Help me someone
Help me please

Take my shoes off
And throw them in the lake
And I'll be
Two steps on the water

I found a fox
Caught by dogs
He let me take him in my hands

His little heart
It beats so fast
And I'm ashamed of running away

From nothing real
I just can't deal with this
But I'm still afraid to be there

Among your hounds of love
And feel your arms surround me
I've always been a coward
And never know what's good for me

Oh here I go
Don't let me go
Hold me down
It's coming for me through the trees
Help me darling
Help me please

Take my shoes off
And throw them in the lake
And I'll be
Two steps on the water

I don't know what's good for me
I don't know what's good for me
I need your love love love love love yeah
Your love

Take your shoes off
And throw them in the lake

Do you know what I really need?
Do you know what I really need?
I need love love love love love yeah

    General CommentThe repitition of the word 'run' really reminds me of Patrick Wolf's 'The Childcatcher'.
