Wuthering Heights Lyrics
What it's about: Kate's nod to Emily Bronte's classic romance novel. (More specifically, the ending, where Cathy comes back as a spirit to claim Heathcliff's soul.)
Running time: 4:26
Kite Lyrics
What it's about: Feeling rooted to the ground, a girl takes to the sky as a kite (but I've always thought it was a thinly veiled drug use metaphor).
Running time: 2:58
The front sleeve is the same as the UK release (except for the catalogue number and a little variation in the border). The rear is unique to France. (Sleeve scan courtesy of Tristan Alzial.)
