This Woman’s Work


Kate Bush menulis lagu ini untuk film She’s Having a Baby (1988) garapan John Hughes yang dibintangi oleh Kevin Bacon dan Elizabeth McGovern. Di akhir film ini, Bacon terlihat resah saat menunggui istrinya melahirkan anak pertamanya, menyadari bahwa nyawa istrinya mungkin terancam, diselingi adegan flashback dari masa-masa bahagia mereka berdua. Bush kemudian merilis lagu ini sebagai singel dari album The Sensual World (1988) dengan video klip yang dibintangi oleh Tim McInnerny, yang terkenal berkat perannya dalam serial Blackadder (bersama Rowan Atkinson). Pada tahun 2001, Maxwell menyanyikan ulang lagu ini dalam album MTV Unplugged, dan merekamnya ulang untuk album studio Now.

This Woman’s Work
(Written and performed by Kate Bush)

Pray God you can cope.
I stand outside this woman’s work,
This woman’s world.
Ooh, it’s hard on the man,
Now his part is over.
Now starts the craft of the father.

I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.
I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.

I should be crying, but I just can’t let it show.
I should be hoping, but I can’t stop thinking

Of all the things I should’ve said,
That I never said.
All the things we should’ve done,
That we never did.
All the things I should’ve given,
But I didn’t.

Oh, darling, make it go,
Make it go away.

Give me these moments back.
Give them back to me.
Give me that little kiss.
Give me your hand.

I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.
I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.

I should be crying, but I just can’t let it show.
I should be hoping, but I can’t stop thinking

Of all the things we should’ve said,
That were never said.
All the things we should’ve done,
That we never did.
All the things that you needed from me.
All the things that you wanted for me.
All the things that I should’ve given,
But I didn’t.

Oh, darling, make it go away.
Just make it go away now.
