Hounds Of Love Lyrics
What it's about: Being afraid of falling in love, and feeling trapped by it. (In the song, this feeling is likened to being chased by a pack of hounds.)
Running time: 3:01
Hounds Of Love (Extended) Lyrics
Running time: 3:44
The Extended Version of Hounds Of Love is unique to this disc (and its 12" promo-only counterpart). It's not the Alternative version that appears on the UK 12"; it's just a longer version of the LP mix. (The chorus and first verse are repeated after the second verse.) Although it doesn't appear on any LP or CD, it doesn't contain any new material, so I didn't include it on the list of non-LP/CD tracks.
This cover is exclusive to the US and Canadian releases of Hounds Of Love, but the photo also appears on the front of the LP/CD. (Here's another shot...)
And just because you're probably dying to know this, the dogs are Bonnie and Clyde...
