For Kate with the Red Shoes (The Girl Inside) - Poem and Song - Tribute to Kate Bush

Updated on June 12, 2012

They watch you carefully

They daren’t even breathe

But you will always leave them wanting


And what they make of you

They’ll never take of you

You’ve got it so they’ll never find you


You’ll dance around their issues

You’ll dance around their stares

And everything important

Is locked up safely deep inside


You’ll always be protected

It’s just what you’ve projected

And what you’ve shone reflected

Betrays the girl inside


Free

You’ll always be

A girl like me – a girl like me


You’ll let them wine and dine you

But that will not define you

And they will ne’er refine you

You’re locked up safely deep inside


I’ll always be protected

It’s just what I’ve projected

And what I’ve shone reflected

Betrays the girl inside


Free

You’ll always be

A girl like me – a girl like me
