It can take a long, long time
To find a reason and a rhyme
One minute you're dancing, wild and free
Next thing you know, you can hardly move your feet

Won't you, won't you wait for me?
I'm almost there, have faith in me
You say you know what I should do
But you have never walked a mile
In my shoes

I keep trudging up the hill
It feels like I'm standing still (standing still)
Pouring rain soaks to the bone
I shield my eyes and lean into the bitter cold

Won't you, won't you wait for me?
I'm almost there, have faith in me (faith in me)
You say you know what I should do
But you have never walked a mile (walked a mile, walked a mile)
In my shoes

Won't you, won't you wait for me?
I went so close, have faith in me (faith in me)
You say you know what I should do
But you have never walked a mile (walked a mile, walked a mile)
Won't you, won't you wait for me?
I'm almost there, have faith in me (faith in me)
You keep saying what I should do
But you have never walked a mile (walked a mile, walked a mile)
In my shoes

If you want goosebumps - check out the theme to 'Last Kingdom' by Eivor and John Lunn... That's how I first came across this awesome performer 
This is a beautiful and compelling pop song.

That is where I have heard Eivør before.

In your shoes? I'm bumping this to an eight. :-)
 
I just did the same thing...and for sure Eivor sounds like KB, just a bit "cuter?" sounding, and not cute as in looks (there's that too for sure!) - can't quite articulate it....still....Long Live RP and all the singers from the Faroe Islands!!

She really reminds me of Kate Bush in this song (though I've not heard any other by her yet!). Diggin' it ;) Beautiful <3
Thank you for playing this again. I always forget to look up the artist, this reminds me a little bit of Kate Bush’s stuff from the 1980s.

 Not just a quirky voice, then. Oh my stars.

Is it the way they tug at the old heart strings? Any way, I'm 100% with you there!
Yet another good reason to listen to RP - delightful.

I’d even take turns with you !?
Discovered another artist I like just from listening to RP.
Wonderful

But she's trudging up that hill, not running... nevermind.
 
The Kate/Tori comparison is dull and overblown. I think it's hilarious that two artists can have such huge catalogues of self-written/produced solo work and somehow be conflated as if they were versions of the other. Mild vocal similarities and composing on piano =/ sameness. If this logic were applied to every man with a guitar...

Eivor is MUCH more than just a (very good) Kate Bush-alike, though - had the unexpected pleasure of seeing her play a very intimate gig while knowing nothing about her and indeed, one of her singing styles (found in quite a bit of her English work) is very much like classic Kate Bush (and this song kinda fits into that, although this is a fairly unmemorable track tbh). However, she also has lots of different vocal styles and influences - her Faeroese work is quite different and relies a lot on percussion and a sort of folk keening (which is atmospheric and arresting)... also she shifts down into what feels close to inuit throat singing in places. Really versatile and gifted singer, who sounded impeccable live - and would definitely recommend giving her more of a chance than "Kate Bush impersonator" territory. Her work on the soundtrack for The Last Kingdom alone is haunting and beautiful.
I like it - and learnt something in the process - Faroe Islands

  - but quite a nice  number nevertheless, and a talented artist to boot

I like it.
 
I really like the sounds in this song, kind of reminds me of sound effects from radio plays.  I also like the message of personal perspective, heck, if this was a common thought most folks had I think the entire population would be better off.  It's a 7 for me for now.  Long Live RP!!
Abrupt ending!
