P.J. Harvey - Catherine


Click me gently
Catherine De Barra
You've murdered my thinking
Gave you my heart
You left the thing stinking
I'd shake from your spell
If it weren't for my drinking
The wind bites more bitter
With each light of morning

I envy the road
The ground you tread under
I envy the wind
Your hair riding over
I envy the pillow
Your head rests and slumbers
I envy to murderous
Envy your lover

'Til the light shines on me
I damn to hell every second you breath
'Til the light shines on me
I damn to hell every second you breath

I envy the road
The ground you tread under
I envy the wind
Your hair riding over
I envy the pillow
Your head rests and slumbers
I envy to murderous
Envy your lover

'Til the light shines on me
I damn to hell every second you breath
'Til the light shines on me
I damn to hell every second you breath

'Til the light shines on me
I damn to hell every second you breath
'Til the light shines on me

Oh my Catherine
For your eyes smiling
For your mouth singing
With time I'd have won you
With wile I'd have won you

For your eyes smiling
For your mouth singing
With time I'd have won you
Oh my Catherine
With time I'd have won you
With wile I'd have won you


Dieser Liedtext ist einer meiner Allzeitlieblinge.
Ich zitierte ihn in meinem Vorwort zu einer Arbeit über Michael Ondaatjes "Englischen Patienten", weil ich sehr grosse Parallelen zwischen diesen Texten sah. 
Ich weiß leider nicht, ob P.J. das Buch gelesen hat oder ob sie sich eher auf "Wuthering Heights " bezieht. Ein Gerücht, das ich im Netz gelesen habe. Songtexte, die auf Romanen basieren, finde ich sowieso sehr spannend. 
This song is one of my alltime favorites. I wrote it into the introduction of my seminar work about M. Ondaatjes "The english patient", because I see a many parallels between both texts.
I don't know if P.J. has read Ondaatjes book or if her song belongs to "Wuthering Heights". Actually this is a rumour I got from the net. Anyhow, lyrics that belong to novels are very exciting in my opinion.
