And makes the clown a winged Mercury.“

„My heart's prepared for aching
The moment you take wing.
But not, my friend, for breaking
While there's another spring.“

"Irreverent Heart"
Rhymes for the Irreverent (1965)
Contexte: My heart is like the willow
That bends, but never breaks.
It sighs when summer jilts her,
It sings when April wakes. So you, who come a-smiling
With summer in your eyes,
Think not that your beguiling
Will take me by surprise. My heart's prepared for aching
The moment you take wing.
But not, my friend, for breaking
While there's another spring.

„It's about gambling, fate, listening to your heart, and having the strength to fight the darkness that's always willing to carry you off.“

—  KT Tunstall Scottish singer-songwriter and guitarist 1975

As quoted in "What's On: Soul's latest talent" in Birmingham Evening Mail (12 February 2005).
Contexte: "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree" is inspired by old blues, Nashville psycho hillbillies & hazy memories. It tells the story of finding yourself lost on your path, and a choice has to be made. It's about gambling, fate, listening to your heart, and having the strength to fight the darkness that's always willing to carry you off.
