Bush, Kate - Top Of The City Lyrics




One more step to the top of the city
Where just a couple of pigeons are living
Up on the angel's shoulders

I don't know if I'm closer to Heaven but
It looks like Hell down there
These streets have never been paved with gold
Welcome to the loneliest city in the world
It's no good for you baby
It's no good for you now
Keep looking up for the ladder

I don't know if you'll love me for it
But I don't think we should suffer this
There's just one thing we can do about it

Take me up to the top of the city
Take me up to the top of the city
Take me up to the top of the city
And put me up on the angel's shoulders

See how that building there is nearly built
There's a big fire over on the north of the city
I see you walking down the street with her
I see your lights going on and off
She's no good for you baby
She's no good for you now
Look I'm here with the ladder

I don't know if you love me or not
But I don't think we should ever suffer
There's just one thing we can do about this

Take me up to the top of the city
Take me up to the top of the city
Up to the highest point of the city
One more step to the top of the city
Put me up on the angel's shoulders

And I don't mind if it's dangerous
I don't mind if it's raining
Take me up to the top of the city

And put me up on the angel's shoulders
Take me up to the top of the city
Mmm yes, one more step to the top of the city
And put me up on the angel's shoulders

    As a musician and songwriter, I am baffled by her talent and ability. As a human, I am grateful for it.

    Tory Shaye

    Poignant and powerful dude agreed

  14. WeTheStrange

    Kate Bush's music is so terrifically inventive and adventurous. Compared to our Kate ,most of today's singers seem incredibly bland and uninspired. Kate Bush is the most wonderful singer since the dawn of the universe! I'd mime to her music back in the 70s and 80s, waving my arms around and throwing cushions along to the more violent songs such as Get Out Of My House. Kate Bush stirred emotions deep within me I didn't even know I had!

  15. Rose Petal

    I love this song! Her music is absolutely ethereal and magical. It takes me to another world.

  16. Clint McCloughlan

    .... I DOOON'T MIND IF IT'S DAANGEROUS... I DON'T MIND IF IT'S RAAAINING.... TAAAKE MEE UP TO THE TOP OF THE CITYY...... And put me up on the angel's shoulders..............

  17. Kurt Sõderberg

    Still so good

  18. topheecheesecake

    How about turning the compressor off ??! (ouch)

  19. Gerald Long

    Ahhh what can I say. Kate Bush is an angel. Just knowing someone like Kate Bush even exists somehow makes this life for bearable. I love this song too. God bless her reclusive soul...and good for her. I know she softens and changes hearts...my appreciation of her music borders on Spiritual. She is a tremendous pagan romantic messenger. I hope I lay in the arms of her music in eternity. She proves everything to me! God, life...everything.

  20. 4yules

    tremendous artist!

  21. pimakudon1

    The favorite is best "Sat in your lap".
    The second is "Hounds of love".
    The third is this. From Japan with love.

  22. treeoftears

    @Symphonyofflowers I think she looks a little older than during the Hounds of Love. I think it is nearer the Red Shoes era.

  23. treeoftears

    I meant the one jusst before that starts at 1:30, she looks more mature than is normally portrayed and has such a look of wisdom about her. :) Thank you for replying so quickly!

  24. treeoftears

    @Dreaming32 Me too. Any idea when and where this photo was taken?

  25. JohanR888

    One of my favourites from the Red Shoes. X
