Deeper Understanding (4:43)

Cover of The Sensual World

From The Sensual World and 5 other releases

The Deeper Understanding Songfacts says: The song’s subject matter of a person relying on a computer for emotional solace was interesting in 1989 when Bush recorded it for her The Sensual World album. If we fast forward to the 21st century where millions of adolescents are locked away in their bedrooms with just their computer games for company, this track takes on a far greater significance.

Bush re-recorded the song for her 2011 album, Directors Cut, which revisited a selection of tracks from The Sensual World and The Red Shoes and released it as a single. This new version features added synthesizer, harmonica and the voice of Bush’s son, Albert.

As the people here grow colder, I turn to my computer
And spend my evenings with it like a friend
I was loading a new programme
I had ordered from a magazine
