The Big Sky 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: 4:40
Cloudbusting Lyrics
What it's about: A look at a special relationship between a boy and his father. It's based on A Book Of Dreams, by Peter Reich.
Running time: 5:08
Watching You Without Me Lyrics
What it's about: After drowning, a woman checks in on her husband from the afterlife.  It's the 4th song on Kate's Ninth Wave epic (the entire B-side of the Hounds Of Love LP).
Running time: 4:06
Jig Of Life Lyrics
What it's about: A woman's future self comes to the present to encourage her to stay alive so that she can grow older and bear children. It's the 5th song on The Ninth Wave.
Running time: 4:04 (even though the disc says 4:16)
