Kate speaking about The Empty Bullring: "This is a song that I first had ideas for quite a few years ago. It is really about someone who is in love with someone who is obsessed with something that is pretty futile. They can't get the person to accept the fact that it is a futile obsession. To put it into a sort of story form: he became a matador, and got gored so badly that he couldn't carry on. But at night he climbs out of the window and runs off to a bullring, when there is no-one there, and he fights a bull that doesn't exist." - (Kate Bush Club newsletter, 1983)
'Tamlain' who is referred to in the song is a girl in a traditional fairy story, who is locked up in an ivory tower.
This song was originally released on the B-side of Kate's single Breathing.
