Under the Ivy Lyrics – Kate Bush

English 59 August 5, 1985

The garden and the white rose could symbolize the delicate, beautiful aspects of our inner selves that we might not easily reveal to others, and the song suggests that there are people who are worth sharing these parts of ourselves with, even if it requires a level of trust and discretion. ...Read More

Under the Ivy Lyrics

[Verse 1: Kate Bush]
It wouldn't take me long to tell you how to find it
To tell you where we'll meet
This little girl inside me
Is retreating to her favourite place

[Chorus: Kate Bush]
Go into the garden, go under the ivy
Under the leaves, away from the party
Go right to the rose, go right to the white rose
(For me)

[Verse 2: Kate Bush]
I sit here in the thunder, the green on the grey
I feel it all around me
And it's not easy for me to give away a secret
It's not safe

[Chorus: Kate Bush]
But go into the garden, go under the ivy
Under the leaves, away from the party
Go right to the rose, go right to the white rose
(For me)
Go into the garden, go under the ivy
Go under the leaves for me
Go right to the rose, go right to the white rose
I'll be waiting for you

[Outro: Kate Bush]
It wouldn't take me long to tell you how to find it
