Kate Bush – This Woman's Work Lyrics 15 years ago
I first heard this song during the waiting room scene in She's Having a Baby.
The whole is about having a baby. It is from the father's perspective (I stand outside this woman's work, This woman's world.).
There are complications, and the lives of both mother and child are threatened.
The father is worried out of his mind and starts thinking on what might happen if his beloved and their child are gone forever. He is helpless and is left with guilt and memories that he wants his lover to make go away by pulling through, by being okay.
