This Woman's Work Lyrics
What it's about: Being forced to suddenly confront reality and adulthood in times of crisis. The track was written for the John Hughes film, She's Having A Baby; specifically, the part where "Jake" (Kevin Bacon) learns his wife's life is in danger.
Running time: 3:34 (single mix)
Originally released on the She's Having A Baby soundtrack in 1988, This Woman's Work was the first track to be completed for the new album. Del Palmer convinced Kate to add it to The Sensual World.
This Woman's Work was a modest hit when it was released in the UK a few months earlier (#25), so I can't understand why Columbia issued it as a promo-only item in the US(?!)
