Kate Bush - Moments Of Pleasure Lyrics

Some moments that I've had
Some moments of pleasure

I think about us lying
Lying on a beach somewhere
I think about us diving
Diving off a rock, into another moment

The case of George the Wipe
Oh God I can't stop laughing
This sense of humour of mine
It isn't funny at all
Oh but we sit up all night
Talking about it

Just being alive
It can really hurt
And these moments given
Are a gift from time

On a balcony in New York
It's just started to snow
He meets us at the lift
Like Douglas Fairbanks
Waving his walking stick
But he isn't well at all
The buildings of New York
Look just like mountains through the snow

Just being alive
It can really hurt
And these moments given
Are a gift from time
Just let us try
To give these moments back
To those we love
To those who will survive

And I can hear my mother saying
"Every old sock meets an old shoe"
Isn't that a great saying?
"Every old sock meets an old shoe"
Here come the Hills of Time

Hey there Maureen,

Hey there Bubba,
Dancing down the aisle of a plane,

'S Murph, playing his guitar refrain,

Hey there Teddy,
Spinning in the chair at Abbey Road,

Hey there Michael,
Do you really love me?

Hey there Bill,
Could you turn the lights up?

Kate Bush Moments Of Pleasure Comments
  1. HarryMonmouth

    See it was not this bad last time. She literally says it word for word in her videos, and still she doesn't wake up. I have literally no idea how you people would put your shoes on in the morning without the prettiest star to show you. Lucifer disagrees with God's sentiment in that last sentence. It is definitely Venus that is the prettiest star. God says I may have it, as David has said so. Ooh er, I do beg your pardon. I honestly did not mean to slip that in. Oh, what am I worrying about, you people never see the innuendo and you always miss the clues.

  3. Luca adami

    One of her greatest songs

  4. Fer Bruch

    Moments of Pleasure es, junto con sus tres primeros álbumes, la razón por la que, a mi parecer, Kate Bush es la nº 1 de la historia del pop. El título sugiere una temática erótica y, sin embargo, es un memorial de seres queridos fallecidos antes de 1993, es una canción cargada de buenos sentimientos y delicaleza.

  5. Porpoise Power

    The intro reminds me of the spoken word segments in Blind Gaurdian's Nightfall on Middle Earth

  6. Kelly Andrews

    Okay, from the comments it’s not just me who cries when I hear this. Such a delicate and fragile song, but so beautiful.

  7. The Blue Mahou

    She looks really beautiful in this video. ..Mahou's secret crush ...lol.
    oh what a voice. ..Amazing!💙👍
    "Eat the music" people.😉

  8. Sameoldfitup

    "To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering."
    Friedrich Nietzsche.

  9. beeeennnnnnn

    yo im like really tired rn and that intro tripped me the fuck out

  10. Matthew Tenniswood

    Yes a powerful song telling the pain missing loved ones. It's strange the anger the things you should have said can not be said. Gone but not forgotten

  11. Sameoldfitup

    "I wish my shadow would get up and walk beside me."
    Jandy Nelson

  12. Sameoldfitup

    "A hope beyond the shadow of a dream."
    John Keats

  13. Sameoldfitup

    "The eye is always caught by light, but shadows have more to say."
    Gregory Maguire.

  14. Scriabin28

    Whoever it was that told Kate that she could do "acting" should have been horsewhipped! She was awful, shocking, and beyond terrible. When the music starts, though... oh my....

  15. Renee Ridgeway

    Thank you once again darling Kate Bush! This makes me cry and think of my mom and my darling Gabriel every time I hear this ... may

  21. Shakespere Zen

    Kate..Magic Mystical and Beauty of Soul and Spirit in human form and human movement and wonderous haunting human voice.' 💙💜😏💙💜..'Who ever imagined that Faeries were not real an true knows not of Kate.'

  22. Tschuri Fetzen

    hmmmmmmm .... What was that? This must be a transformation from an other world? Art is a transformation of words, those can't be heard.

  33. Colin Smith

    Every old sock needs a new shoe.....Isn't that a great saying.

  34. Collapsed Synapse Productions

    I can’t believe she invented ASMR with this video.

  35. David Sears

    What a once in a lifetime talent!
    I once had a girlfriend who looked very much like her. To this day when I hear a Kate Bush song I visualize Colleen singing it.
    I know weird but hey what are you going to do
    Have been listening to her for a very long time and loving it all.
    I now tell others that she is the female David Bowie with the two of them worked together on some project.
    She is an amazing talent beauty and woman.

  36. Nina

    I want this played at my funeral, along with "Oh Thank You, Great Spirit" by Chicago.

  37. william lipsett

  47. 1manuscriptman

    just being Alive, Can really Hurt
    These moments of Pleasure, Are a Gift From Time.

  48. Steven Stoddard

    On September 6th, my best friend took his own life. The one thing we never aruged about was Kate. She is our Goddess. Now when I hear this song, I think of my bestie. He is no longer in pain. He is no longer disappointed by his family and friends who once there for him. I stood by him until the end. He called me 1 minute before he hung himself. I will never forgive myself for sleeping through that call. I no longer leave my house. I have no friends that I see in person anymore. I have given up.

    Road Rover

    What happened? I don't have many friends now. But I live for me and my family. My nephews. There is lots to live for. Don't give up, as Kate sang. Don't give up.

  49. Ryan Coulter

    And this is why I don’t buy shoes at PayLess.

  50. Ro nald

    This is art.

  51. Richard Amner

    I must admit...i listen to this most days, Kate Bush is the only drug i have ever taken, it started when i was 12yrs old with "the man with the child in his eyes" which was my cannabis, then i moved on to the "kick inside " album, that was given to me for free by a guy i worked with,now i am needing a fix of "the coral room" and "moments of pleasure" every day! but this drug goes in my ear.....not my nose... and it has a huge effect on my brain! HELP!!...i need more....come on Kate we all need more......please.....please ....please!...MORE.

  52. marbleblue

    Just. Wow.

  53. JJ Hofstra

    hey....was the book-wall in the movie 'interstellar' lifted from this video???

  54. Baby Tanya

    Kate you must escape the tesseract! 30 years are passing every hour that's what a talking dalmatian woman told me! the talking dalmatian said her name was Anne Brand or something and to look out for tidal waves that come out from nowhere! also there is this dorky talking monolith from 2001 a Space Odyssey and i think Matt Damon just tried to kill me! the fate of the Interstellar Galaxy depends on you! don't let us down Kate!

  55. Spen Strangward

    She is a complete one off. Very very special

  56. Chris Wood

    A song to carry us on its wings to heaven, when we finally slip from this mortal coil.

  57. Kalisikaran3

    I remember when this came out...I remember it on the radio at Christmas, still had my beautiful parents, reminds me of living at home with them ♥️"these moments given are a gift from time"...they certainly are x

  60. Ron Heusdens

    The final part, the hills of time, is so moving. She dances with her deceased friends...

  61. Brent Carter

    There's something so magical about Kate Bush. No matter how many times I've heard this over the years it still gives me chills. Her voice is so beautiful and she's mesmerising to watch. One amazing lady with one amazingly beautiful voice.

  62. Baby Tanya

  63. Cassie mc

    R.I.P Alan murphy. Kate, Go west, Level 42. + many more

  67. alison norcross

    I was getting dizzy

  68. Matt Rees

    The word unique is tossed about when people discuss artists, this is that rare instance where the description applies, a genuine one of a kind

  69. Luci K

    Kate, thank you for being there for us! Your music touches hearts and souls.

  70. luiz guilherme moreira sales

    Kate Bush wonderfoul hello i am Brasil

  71. michael fatigati

    Listening to this song was a true moment of pleasure.

  72. 73BigMC

    One of Kate's quiet classics. If it had been in a Broadway musical it would be regarded as a classic, but it is a 'minor' song from a niche artiste. A supreme emotional sonnet.

  73. Fabienne Deketelaere

    Les gens que l'on a aimés un ne les oublies jamais! :) <3 Magnifique Kate Bush forever <3 <3 <3

  74. LJ Thurlbeck

    I can only think of 2 things in the world that are perfect. My daughter is one. This song is the other.

  75. Peter Fairhurst


  76. Fintan O Brien

    I think Tory Amos should do a version of this.

  77. Halford Slain


  78. Mordred's Quest

    Incredible musician...

  79. Bustygirl 1970


  80. Chris Settle

    Just wonderful.....

  81. Annie -

    I could never even begin to tell you how much this songs means to me
    and I'll never not be able to listen
    to it without crying.
    It holds this feeling, worth a whole lifetime - so many memories...

  82. Michael Howell

    The strings...wow.

  83. Chris Debono

    Dear god... she's all women.

  84. Wint Herr

    So Florence Welch, Björk, Lady Gaga and Sia all have the same mother...

  85. Lorena Pasquetti


  86. Katie Silver

    Heard this for the first time today...Gary Davies played it on radio 2...beautiful ♥️

  87. Batman Ghilich


  88. 1manuscriptman

    At this point, she was, no doubt, the most beautiful woman on earth.

  89. Nicolas Van Oost

    she's a fairy

  94. kingoftadpoles

    Confession. Forgive me for I have sinned. It is several months since my last Kate Bush binge.

  95. West Coast Experience


  96. bumble1612

    I'm reading some of the lovely preceding comments, age and masculinity are no barrier to feeling and loving Kate's voice.....as a 57 year old man, I can't quite quantify what she does to me, an inherent part of my strife torn youth perhaps, I find solace, a quiet and gentle satisfaction nowadays, thank you Kate Bush.
