Apart from Madonna, Lennox is another great artist from the 80s. I like the melancholic melodies accompanying very poignant lyrics about life's joyous and tragic moments. She writes what I deem as REAL music.
In this song, she sings the feminist refrain of the repressed woman pining for her lover while dutifully playing her tradional role as lady of the house (paradoxically portrayed with the cutsy pie Mickey Mouse earred female character in the MTV).
