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. The rear is unique to Sweden. (Sleeve scan courtesy of Bart.)
First pressing discs were made in Sweden.  Later pressings used the same picture sleeve, but had discs manufactured in the UK.
