3. What’s your favorite lyric by 33?Kate Bush
: Whew, a tough one, taking into consideration the complexity of her lyrics... :) I guess this next one is pretty haunting (Under Ice
Everywhere, so white
The river has frozen over
Not a soul on the ice
Only me, skating fast
I'm speeding past trees leaving
Little lines in the ice
Cutting out little lines
In the ice, splitting, splitting sound
Silver heels spitting, spitting snow
There's something moving under
Under the ice
Moving under ice – through water
Trying to get out of the cold water
Something, someone – help them
