The Big Sky (Meteorological Mix) Lyrics
What it's about: Remembering some of the simple pleasures we used to enjoy as children, that we no longer find the time for -- like spending the afternoon looking at the sky, watching the clouds take on shapes.
Running time: 7:44
Not This Time Lyrics
What it's about: A woman declares her independence from her possessive/domineering/abusive (pick one) lover.
Running time: 3:41
The Morning Fog Lyrics
What it's about: Serious conflicts and crises offer fresh perspectives -- they help us refocus on what's truly important: family and friends. The Morning Fog is the closing song on Kate's Ninth Wave epic (the entire B-side of the Hounds Of Love LP), where the girl is rescued.
Running time: 2:35
The Morning Fog appears only on this 12" single (in all countries except the US). The US version is very similar, but it has different B-side titles.
The Canadian version shown on this page is identical to the UK release in all respects except the A-side is labeled the "astrological mix" on the disc (shown here).
