A great song from her 1989 album "The Sensual World". The song features The Trio Bulgarka on backing vocals and David Gilmour on guitar. It's named after Kate's cat Rocket.
That November night, looking up into the sky, You said,
"Hey, wish that was me up there-- It's the biggest rocket I could find, And it's holding the night in its arms If only for a moment. I can't see the look in its eyes, But I'm sure it must be laughing."
But it seemed to me the saddest thing I'd ever seen, And I thought you were crazy, wishing such a thing.
I saw only a stick on fire, Alone on its journey Home to the quickening ground, With no one there to catch it.
I put on my pointed hat And my black and silver suit, And I check my gunpowder pack And I strap the stick on my back. And, dressed as a rocket on Waterloo Bridge-- Nobody seems to see me. Then, with the fuse in my hand, And now shooting into the night And still as a rocket, I land in the river.
Was it me said you were crazy? I put on my cloudiest suit, Size 5 lightning boots, too.
'Cause I am a rocket On fire. Look at me go, with my tail on fire, With my tail on fire, On fire. Hey, look at me go, look at me...
