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: 3:00
The front sleeve is the same as the UK release, except for the Cime Tempestose banner, (which is the song title in Italian). The rear is unique to Italy. (Sleeve scan courtesy of Bart.)
