"Deeper Understanding" as written by and Kate / Bush....
As the people here grow colder
I turn to my computer
And spend my evenings with it
Like a friend
I was loading a new program
I had ordered from a magazine
Are you lonely, are you lost?
This voice console is a must
I press Execute

Hello, I know that you've been feeling tired
I bring you love and deeper understanding
Hello, I know that you're unhappy
I bring you love and deeper understanding

Well I've never felt such pleasure
Nothing else seemed to matter
I neglected my bodily needs
I did not eat, I did not sleep
The intensity increasing
'Til my family found me and intervened
But I was lonely, I was lost
Without my little black box
I pick up the phone and go Execute

Hello, I know that you've been feeling tired
I bring you love and deeper understanding
Hello, I know that you're unhappy
I bring you love and deeper understanding

I turn to my computer like a friend

I need deeper understanding

Give me deeper understanding

    General CommentIn the context of 2006, this is clearly about internet/computer addiction, which is a widespread problem. The fact that it was released in 1989 makes it a pretty foreseeing feat by Bush.

    General CommentInteresting how Kate, often in her songs, has a disconnect between her characters and those around them. They are looking for something deeper (e.g. All We Ever Look For) or misunderstanding (e.g. The Big Sky - 'you never really understood me, you never really tried). This person can't find deeper understanding with those around them - so they have found it on a computer.

    Kate Bush, the true inventor of I-phone.

    General CommentI wonder if she will change and how will she change the lyrics of the song for the new, up-coming single.
