B i o g r a p h y
 (by Stephen Thomas Erlewine)

Bjrk first came to prominence as one of the lead vocalists of the avant-pop Icelandic sextet the Sugarcubes, but when she launched a solo career after the group's 1992 demise, she quickly eclipsed her old band's popularity. Instead of following in the Sugarcubes' arty guitar rock pretensions, Bjrk immersed herself in dance and club culture, working with many of the biggest names in the genre, including Nellee Hooper, Underworld, and Tricky. Debut, her first solo effort (except for an Icelandic-only smash released when she was just 11 years old), not only established her new artistic direction, but it became an international hit, making her one of the '90s most unlikely stars. Though the title of Debut implied that it was Bjrk's first-ever solo project, she had actually been a professional vocalist since she was a child. When she was in elementary school in Reykjavik, she studied classical piano and, eventually, her teachers submitted a tape of her singing Tina Charles' "I Love to Love" to Iceland's Radio One. After "I Love to Love" was aired, a record label called Falkkin offered Bjrk a record contract. At the age of 11, her eponymous first album was released; the record contained covers of several pop songs, including the Beatles' "Fool on the Hill," and boasted artwork from her mother and guitar work from her stepfather. Bjrk became a hit within Iceland and was not released in any other country. Bjrk's musical tastes were changed by the punk revolution of the late '70s; in 1979, she formed a post-punk group called Exodus and, in the following year, she sang in Jam 80. In 1981, Bjrk and Exodus bassist Jakob Magnusson formed Tappi Tikarrass, which released an EP, Bitid Fast I Vitid, on Spor later that year; it was followed by the full-length Miranda in 1983. Following Tappi Tikarrass, she formed the goth-tinged post-punk group KUKL with Einar Orn Benediktsson. KUKL released two albums, The Eye (1984) and Holidays in Europe (1986), on Crass Records before the band metamorphosed into the Sugarcubes in the summer of 1986. The Sugarcubes became one of the rare Icelandic bands to break out of their native country when their debut album, Life's Too Good, became a British and American hit in 1988. For the next four years, the group maintained a successful cult following in the U.K. and the U.S. while they were stars within Iceland During 1990, Bjrk recorded a set of jazz standards and originals with an Icelandic bebop group called Trio Gudmundar Ingolfssonar. The album, Gling-Gl, was released only in Iceland. By 1992, tensions between Bjrk and Einar had grown substantially, which resulted in the band splitting apart. Following the breakup of the group, Bjrk moved to London, where she began pursuing a dance-oriented solo career. The previous year, she had sung on 808 State's "Ooops," which sparked her interest in club and house music.

Bjrk struck up a working relationship with Nellee Hooper, a producer who had formerly worked with Soul II Soul and Massive Attack. The first result of their partnership was "Human Behaviour," which was released in June of 1993. "Human Behaviour" became a Top 40 hit in the U.K., setting the stage for the surprising number three debut of the full-length album, Debut. Throughout 1993, Bjrk had hit U.K. singles — including "Venus as a Boy," "Big Time Sensuality," and the non-LP "Play Dead," a collaboration with David Arnold taken from the film Young Americans — as well as modern rock radio hits in the U.S., and in both countries she earned rave reviews. At the end of the year, NME magazine named Debut the album of the year, while she won International Female Solo Artist and Newcomer at the BRIT Awards; Debut went gold in the U.S. and platinum in the U.K. During 1994, Bjrk was relatively quiet as she recorded her second album with Nellee Hooper, Tricky, 808 State's Graham Massey, and Howie B of Mo' Wax Records; she also released a remix EP, co-wrote the title track for Madonna's Bedtime Stories, and performed on MTV Unplugged that same year. "Army of Me," the first single from Bjrk's forthcoming album, was released as a teaser single in the spring of 1995; it debuted at number ten in the U.K. and became a moderate alternative rock hit in the U.S. Post, her second album, was released in June of 1995 to positive reviews; it peaked at number two in the U.K. and number 32 in the U.S. Post matched its predecessor in terms of sales and praise, going gold in the U.S. and helping her earn her second BRIT Award for Best International Female Artist. Post yielded the British hit singles "Isobel" (number 23), "It's Oh So Quiet" (number four), and "Hyperballad" (number eight), yet her singles failed to make much headway on American radio or MTV. Late in 1996, Bjrk released Telegram, an album comprised of radical remixes of the entire Post album, in the U.K.; Telegram was released in America in January 1997. Homogenic, her most experimental studio effort to date, followed later that same year and spawned many remix releases in the next few years to follow. In the spring of 2000, she was named Best Actress by jurors at the Cannes Film Festival for her work in Lars von Trier's Palme d'Or-winning Dancer in the Dark. Selmasongs, her score for the film, reunited Bjrk with her Homogenic collaborator Mark Bell and arrived in the fall of 2000, just in time for Dancer in the Dark's U.S. release. The full-length follow-up, Vespertine, was released one year later. She released a Greatest Hits collection and the Family Tree box set late in 2002. After performing a few dates in 2003, Bjrk geared up for a busy 2004, which included the release of her all-vocals and vocal samples-based album Medlla and a performance of one of its songs, "Oceania," at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece.

Arabadrengurinn

Það var i Næturlestinni i Kairo
Það sem g hitti arabadreng
Sem siðan aldrei r huga mr hverfur
Eg elska hann

Hann sagði sgur af falda snum
Og sng um vatnið vinjum og m
Hann br upp myndum með tfrandi lnum
Eg elska hann

Það var vor og sl
Daginn eftir fr g að hitta hann
Við frum niðr'að nl
Við þurftum engan bl, aðeins faldann

Hann fr og sndi mr pramda
Rtt við jaðar Sahara sands
Og aug'ans lystu við steinana hvta
Eg elska hann

Nlarbkkum við gengum og sungum
Um lfsins gleði, fegurð og st
Eg fylltist anda r framandi tungum
Eg elska hann

Það var vor og sl
Fuglar sungu kr að g hitti hann
Við frum niðr'að nl
Við þurftum engan bl, aðeins faldann

Hann kvaddi mig með trvotum augum
A lestarstoðinni daginn þann
Er stin brann svo heitt mnum taugum
Eg vissi g sæi aldrei aftur hann

Mig dreymir oft um drenginn minn frða
Og þ er lfið ljft nlægð hans
Hann hefur stækkað, þv rin þau lða
Eg elska hann

Hr upp slandi græt g leynum
Og leita'að merkjum sem minna hann
Eg s hans andlit stokkum og steinum
Eg elska hann

Það var vor og sl
Fuglar sungu kr að g hitti hann
Við frum niðr'að nl
Við þurftum engan bl, aðeins faldann

Hann kvaddi mig með trvotum augum
A lestarstoðinni daginn þann
Er stin brann svo heitt mnum taugum
Eg vissi g sæi aldrei aftur hann

Mig dreymir oft um drenginn minn frða
Og þ er lfið ljft nlægð hans
Hann hefur stækkað, þv rin þau lða
Eg elska hann

Hr upp slandi græt g leynum
Og leita'að merkjum sem minna hann
Eg s hans andlit stokkum og steinum
Eg elska hann

The Arabian Boy

It was in the nighttrain in Cairo
Where I found an arabian boy
Whom since then never left my thoughts
I love him

He told me stories from his dromedary
And sang of water in oasis and rivers
He drew me pictures with magical lines
I love him

There was spring and sun
The next day I left to look for him
We went down the Nile
We didn't need a car, just a dromedary

He went and showed me the pyramids
Right by edge of Sahara sands
And his eyes lit up by the white stones
I love him

By the Nile's bank we walked and sang
About lifes joy, beauty and love
I felt inspired by other foreign tongues
I love him

There was spring and sun
Birds sung in choir when i found him
We went down the Nile
We didn't need a car, just a dromedary

He left me with tears in his eyes
On the railway station that day
Although love burned hot in my nerves
I knew I would never see him again

I often dream of my fair boy
And life is sweet when I'm close to him
He has grown, as the years have passed
I love him

Here back in Iceland I cried in lonliness
And searched for marks to remind me of him
I see his face in sticks and stones
I love him

There was spring and sun
Birds sung in choir when i found him
We went down the Nile
We didn't need a car, just a dromedary

He left me with tears in his eyes
On the railway station that day
Although love burned hot in my nerves
I knew I would never see him again

I often dream of my fair boy
And life is sweet when I'm close to him
He has grown, as the years have passed
I love him

Here back in Iceland I cried in lonliness
And searched for marks to remind me of him
I see his face in sticks and stones
I love him

There was spring and sun
Birds sung in choir when i found him
We went down the Nile
We didn't need a car, just a dromedary

I took a hair from your tail
And put it carefully on the ground
Then there sprung up water at my thirst
I know it was also good for the earth

You are so good, cow cow - my Bkolla
Your advice saved us, cow cow - my Bkolla
So deep and blue, your eyes - oh my friend

Me and you, we are alone
And fleeing from two giantesses
Further, further, further we run

I took a hair from your tale
And left it on the ground
Then fier sprung up to my cold
I know it whas also good for the earth

Alta Mira

One day I talked to old man in ragged clothes
I was walking near the harbour - he stood on the docks

He told me about the special country, far away it is
and now it's like something has burst inside me

Alta Mira - is the adventure land
Alta Mira - my mind carries me there
Alta Mira - is the adventure land
Alta Mira - my mind carries me there

The old man told me that the sun was seagreen over there
in the sea there were wise cows swimming on the side

a seal was in a musical in silvercoloured shoes
in the squares roamed centipedes in flowery tuxedos

Alta Mira - is the adventure land
Alta Mira - my mind carries me there
Alta Mira - is the adventure land
Alta Mira - my mind carries me there

Hey - Alta Mira - lalalalala-lala...

My little girl, who plays so well
The day has passed and the night has come
Time now to take your clothes off
Wash the fingers, or what do you think?

Give me a pillow and give me a blanket
Give me a bed that has two sets of wings
There I will fly in the home of my mind
And go in a dream to the huge universe

Then fly my friend in the mind
Visit Venus and Mercury
There you will meet a beautiful wife
Who brings you presents, or what do you think?

From earth the the route leads to Mars
Where shoals of trouts and salmon play
Delays are expected at Jupiters moon
And ... , or what do you think?

Give me a pillow and give me a blanket...

In saturn they dance around the clock
Shot the clubs with a uranus swing
In Neptunus city you may build your home
And travel to Pluto, or what do you think?

Give me a pillow and give me a blanket...

They put in chains
They nailed him so high upon a cross
And they called him a slave

No-one will understand the trials that
He had to endure

For all the truth

You gave them the knowledge - oh, oh, oh

You get your victorious reward
Though your hand is cold

You get your victorious reward
My beloved hand - break the ties now!

Fool from a hill

Day after day
Alone on a hill
The strange guy
Where the roster crowed

No one wants to know about him
And they point where he goes
He still holds out alone

Do you know about a fool on a hill
He can see a precious sun
And his eyes see more
They see a world, a hidden world

Ask him for a help
He comes quickly
He that has thousand voices
Whisper the truth quickly

No one wants to listen to him
Or the sound in a secret song
Which he doesn't know at all

Do you know about a fool on a hill
He can see a precious sun
And his eyes see more
They see a world, a hidden world

No one wants to see him
In the hut in the south with a lake
He still holds out alone

Do you know about a fool on a hill
He can see a precious sun
And his eyes see more
They see a world, a hidden world

No one wants to listen to him
And they point where he goes
He still holds out alone

Do you know about a fool on a hill
He can see a precious sun
And his eyes see more
They see a world, a hidden world

Þkka þr Guð fyrir gðan dag
Gleymdi g einhverju, hvað var það?
Eg bad fyrir pabba og hugsaði um þig
J n man g - Guð blessi mig

Drengurrin litli han sefur n rtt

Uss - hljtt - hvað?
Drengurrin litli sem bænirnar bað
The Prayer

The little boy he crawls to his knees
Crosses his hands so that God can see
Hush - quiet - what?
The little boy who says his prayers

Good God don't go away from mommy
She undresses me and bathes and stays with me
Then she dresses me in warm nightgown
God bless daddy 'cause I forgot

When I think of what happened today
A little song comes to mind
I must not stop saying my prayer
Forgive me God, I ask you kindly

My nightgown has a hood
Inside the hood I hide my head
It covers my eyes and my forehead aswell
Nobody knows that I am there

Thank you God for a good day
Did I forget something, what was it?
I prayed for daddy and thought of you
Yes now I remember - God bless me

The little boy sleeps well now
The day is over, the night has come
Hush - quiet - what?
The little boy who said his prayers

Lantern Gvendur

He brought light in both his hands
Around the town each night
Lamplighter-Gvendur from long long ago

By his grey hair he was known
Gleaming by the lanterns light
Lamplighter-Gvendur from long long ago

He could be heard walking calmly and quietly
Down every street during the night
His heart would smile with joy

If a young boy and girl
He saw, he would not light his lamp
Leaving them in the shade of darkness

And he reminisced about his youth
And he looked back on his sweet love
When he hugged tight his sweet young girl

He brought light in both his hands
Around the town each night
Lamplighter-Gvendur from long long ago

He could be heard walking calmly and quietly

Crackle & Bang

The commitees are bad, heavy is their load
We will however beat their asses
Because we can delay the christmas to march
If only we want to

It is like I hear crackles and bangs
From the awesome power
When you, down in congress, whip their asses
With your thunderous mouth
Yes, the ruralparty I break back
Like a leaky wreck
Yes, maybe I should
Lift the house and blow off the green copper roof

Yes, it will make him happy
Lighten his dark days
As the small children buy a ki-li-li-lo
Of fruits for their belly
Yes, merrily I will sing he-le-le-lo
Also ding-ding-dong
It will all be sold out
Though I seldomly find that we ever have sold enough!

No, it will make him happy

Lovecharm

With Cupid have often I quarreled
But never taken such a blow
He aimed his arrows at me
And it was I who fell

Oft with Cupid have I quarreled
When upon me his magic falls
Love owns my thoughts and once again I
Can offer no resistance

I've fallen at your feet
Forgive me, for I love you
I am conquered completely
And only you can save me

With Cupid have I often quarreled
But never taken such a blow
Love owns my thoughts and I am tied up
Because it was I who fell

I've fallen at your feet
Forgive me, for I love you
I am conquered completely
And only you can save me

With Cupid have I often quarreled
But never taken such a blow
Love owns my thoughts and I am tied up
Because it was I who fell

Yes, love owns my thoughts and I am tied up
Because it was I who fell

The little musician

Mama - are you awake my mama?
Mama - I want to come close to you
Oh mama - it would be so fun to be grown up
Then I would conduct both an orchestra and choir

Mama - you are lovely, my mama
I - like coming closer to you
Oh but Mama - earlier I dreamt a dream of you
I fell out of bed - and it upset me so

You were a queen in a tall palace
A band of elves, men and trolls
Played for you and sang
You were so magnificent

The trolls they pounded the drums
Flower-elves played the flutes
The violins, by human beings
On mandolin, me

Mama

All of us gazed up at you
Just like flowers when the sun shines
And from your embrace
Gifts flew everywhere

Most easily caught theirs
Gladly I quickly reached mine
But the chair on which I perched
Tipped over, so it fell

Mama - you are lovely, my mama
I like coming close to you
Oh mama - it would be so fun to be grown up
Then I would conduct both an orchestra and choir

Það Sst Ekki Sætari Mey

Þad lenti drætti
Að mðir mn mig ætti
Þvi hn var svo gskið grey

En læknrinn var sttur
Og loksins l hn dttur
Og það sst ekki sætari mey

En pabbi varð sjlfur
A sjnum alltaf hlfur
Svo hann gat ekki lengur sagt næ

Fyrst varð hann mjg sleginn
En seinna sagdi hann feginn
Að það sst ekki sætari mey

Sætari mey
Sætari mey
Næ, það sst ekki sætari mey

Og fyrr en mig varði
Hver strkur mig starði
Eins og stelpur gleym-mr-ei

Þeir fru að skjlfa
Og sgðu við sig sjlfa:
Hn er sorglega stygg
En mjg trygg - að g hygg
Og það sst ekki sætari mey

g lærði i bernsku
Að blikk' finni ensku
Og min sngrdd var "sweet and gay"

En vestur landi
Eg lenti hjnabandi
Það er sorglegt fyrir siðprða mey

Hann lagði sinn vana
Að elska Amerkana
Svo g kyssti hann og sagði "okay"

En illt var efni
Hann var ðamla svefni
Og þ reyndist hann, ramm slenskt grey

slenskt grey
slenskt grey
Sem hann sæðist slenska mey

En n er nnur ldin
Eg dansa kt kvldin
Og þau kalla mig gleym-mr-ei

Og piltarnir þeir skjlfa
Þeir segja við sig sjlfa:
Næ, þ sendir mr blossandi st - þvlkt hnoss!
Þvi það sst ekki sætari mey

None sweeter than me can be seen

It was quite a delay
When my mother had me
For she was such a slender sort

The doctor was fetched
And finally her daughter was born
And none sweeter than me was ever seen

My father spent usually
His time at sea half-drunk
But he could not deny me

At first he was rather shocked
But then he said, relieved
That none sweeter than me can be seen

Sweeter than me
Sweeter than me
No none sweeter than me can be seen

Before I would know it
Every boy would stare at me
The way girls do at forget-me-nots

They would shiver
And say to themselves:
She is hard to get
But very secure - I would think
And none sweeter than me can be seen

I learned while in childshoes
To speak proper English
And my songvoice was "sweet and gay"

But westwards in the country
I stumbled into marriage
It was sad for a nice girl like me

He had put into habit
To love all Americana
So I kissed him and said "okay"

Then I discovered deceit
When he spoke in his sleep
And I found out, he was very Icelandic after all

Just Icelandic
Just Icelandic
Who wanted an Icelandic me

But now things are different
I go dancing merrily at night
And they call me Forget-me-not

And the boys all shiver
They say to themselves:
No, you sending me currents of love - what luck!
'Cause none sweeter than me can be seen

Blavsur

Car Song

Are you coming?
Yes my dear
Right this minute
Hey - you have a new car?

You're really great
And very sweet
To be inviting me
That's a really great style

And if it snows
We have plenty of
Snowchains to get us
Safely all the way

The lovely Dri
My big and strong one
He drives so well
Though the road is not wide

Ooh!

Oh - there he is!
Yeah, and it's gotta be cool
And a Ford model nineteen hundred
And-I-don't-know-what

I step up into him
And I fly on wings of love
And on to Mosfellstown
In an adventure-hunt

With my big handbag
I lean against Dri
A spring in the front seat
Stung me in the worst place!

But that's how things are
You suffer through it
But i'll be better soon
My Dri makes sure of that

The chain is worn
And broke under the car
Crawl under the car, Dri
Try and hurry up

Are you completely crazy?
Oh yes my goodness!
There you've torn my stocking!
My dear, I will

Never again go out with you
Alone - I swear that I have
Never in my life recalled
Riding in such a car

Oh now the tire burst
And the noise!
And in the end it runs right
Into a heap of mud

I don't know what to say

I don't know what to say
I ponder day and night
It's troublesome at times
To be as popular as I

I'm just a young and simple soul
And doubt still fills my mind
I'd choose by tossing a coin
But the boys I know are three

How can I know what to say
When doubt still fills my soul
I cannot toss a coin
To choose my love as they are three
It's hard to have to say
To this one "yes" or "no"
If I should choose to love all three, i'll end up all alone

I don't know what to say
I think I love that Jn
He dances like an angel
But drives a car like mad

He snores just like a ram
Wo I can't sleep a wink
At least, that's what his mama said
And his mama - i'll be damned!

How can I know what to say
When doubt still fills my soul
I cannot toss a coin
To choose my love as they are three
It's hard to have to say
To this one "yes" or "no"
If I should choose to love all three, i'll end up all alone

Don't know what to say
I think I do love Geir
He used to whisper, "Listen..."
But never ever more

I kissed him on one night
No - he kissed me, i'll be damned!
Then he called out in surprise
"no listen - I just bumped into you!"

How can I know what to say
When doubt still fills my soul
I cannot toss a coin
To choose my love as they are three
It's hard to have to say
To this one "yes" or "no"
If I should choose to love all three, i'll end up all alone

I don't know what to say
I think I do love Svein
I never really dare
To be with him all alone

His caresses spark a loving flame
So strange and burning hot
That's what Svana and Gunna say
But I could not say myself

How can I know what to say
When doubt still fills my soul
I cannot toss a coin
To choose my love as they are three
It's hard to have to say
To this one "yes" or "no"
If I should choose to love all three, i'll end up all alone

To dance with you

See the rhumbadance is drumming now
Dance therefor, me and you
Gliding easily around the floor to and fro
Magic skin, burning desire

Am I dreaming or are you here?
Yet tonight, alone with me
These arms of yours awake a burning love
Pleasure, fire in the soul

Dance together until day rises
Though you hide I remember you
And your hand leading my hand home
Out to a world of happiness

By your beautiful loving fiery eyes
I'm swept away tonight
The deep dew softly shoots to ground
Mildly and quietly comes the night

The children by the pond

It's fun for the good children
To walk with Daddy to the pond
See a little quack-quack-quack
And the children enjoy themselves, ha-ha-ha

Give it some bread to bite into
The children enjoy this so much
All full is the quack-quack-quack
And the children enjoy themselves, ha-ha-ha

In the islet she has a nest
Sheltering her ducklings
They all share the same blanket
Sleeping under mommy's wing

They try and learn to swim themselves
Happy to teach them, mommy is
She is their sensible defender
Shelters and feeds her little babies

Once a little duckling I saw
The poor thing had gotten lost from it's mother
It kept swimming in circles
And could not see her anywhere

Mother knew very well about this
And her wings brought her there
Terribly glad was the ducking then
And safe with his mommy again

If our pond freezes
It is fun to sled out on the ice
Out there it is usually quite chilly
And poor quack-quack is so cold

With cold feet on cold ice
He sometimes freezes and dies
The children mourn their quack-quack
And so our story ends
 

Ruby Baby

I've got a girl and Ruby is her name
She don't love me but I love her just the same

Ruby Ruby, how I want you
Like a ghost I'm gonna haunt you
Ruby Ruby, when will you be mine

Each time I see my baby, my heart cries
I'm gonna steal her away from all those guys

From the sunny day I met you
Made a bet that I would get you
Ruby Ruby, when will you be mine

 I've got a girl and Ruby is her name

Can't help loving that man

Fish got to swim, birds got to fly
I got to love one man 'til I die
Can't help loving that man of mine

Maybe he's lazy, maybe he's slow
Maybe I'm crazy, maybe I know
Can't help loving that man of mine

And when he's away
That's a rainy day
But when he's back
The day is fine, the sun will shine
He can stay out as long as can be
For without him ain't no home for me
Can't help loving that man of mine
Show me....

Oh, fish got to swim, birds got to fly
I got to love one man 'til I die
Can't help loving that man of mine
Maybe he's crazy, maybe he's slow
Maybe I'm crazy, maybe I know
Can't help loving that man of mine

And when he's away
That's a rainy day
But when he's back
The day is fine, the sun will shine
He can stay out as long as can be
For without him ain't no home for me
Can't help loving that man of mine
Can't help loving, loving that man of mine
Can't help....help....help
Loving that man....man....man
Man of mine....mine....mine
I just can't help

Human Behaviour

 If you ever get close to a human
And human behaviour
Be ready to get confused
There's definitely, definitely, definitely no logic
To human behaviour
But yet so, yet so irresistible
And there's no map
They're terribly moody
And human behaviour
Then all of a sudden turn happy
But, oh, to get involved in the exchange
Of human emotions is ever so, ever so satisfying
Oh oh, and there's no map
Human behaviour, human
Human, human behaviour, human
Human, human behaviour, human
Human behaviour, human
And there's no map
And a compass
Wouldn't help at all
Human behaviour, human, human
Human behaviour, human
Human behaviour, human
Human behaviour
There's definitely, definitely, definitely no logic
Human, human
Human behaviour
Human
There's definitely, definitely, definitely no logic
Human, human, human, human

Crying

 I travel
All around the city
Go in and out of
Locomotives
All alone

 There's no-one here
And people everywhere
Crying 'cause I need you
Crying I can feel you
Crying 'cause I need you
Crying 'cause I care

It's a hot day
And i'm dressed lightly
I move carefully
Through the crowd
Here everyone
Is so vulnerable
And i'm as well

There's no-one here
And people everywhere
Crying 'cause I need you
Crying I can feel you
Crying 'cause I need you
Crying 'cause I care

Only if a ship would sail in
Or just someone came
And knocked at my door
Or just, or just something

Crying 'cause I need you
Crying I can feel you
Crying 'cause I need you
Crying 'cause I care

Theres More To Life Than This

Come on girl
Let's sneak out of this party
It's getting boring
There's more to life than this

It's still early morning
We could go down to the harbour
And jump between the boats
And see the sun come up

Sample : There's more to life than this

There's more to life than this
There's more to life than this

I could nick a boat
And sneak off to this island
I could bring my little ghettoblaster

There's more to life than this
But then we'd have to rush back
To the town's best baker
To get the first bread of the morning
There's more to life than this

Sample : There's more to life than this

There's more to life than this X4

Like someone in love

Lately
I find myself out gazing at stars
Hearing guitars
Like someone in love

Sometimes the things I do astound me
Mostly whenever you're around me

Lately
I seem to walk as though I have wings
Bump into things
Like someone in love

Each time I look at you, I'm limp as a glove
And feeling like someone in love

Sometimes the things I do astound me
Mostly whenever you're around me

Lately
I seem to walk as though I have wings
Bump into things
Like someone in love

Each time I look at you, I'm limp as a glove
And feeling like someone in love
Like someone in love
Like someone in love

Big Time Sensuality

 I can sense it
Something important
Is about to happen
It's coming up

It takes courage to enjoy it
The hardcore and the gentle
Big time sensuality

We just met
And I know I'm a bit too intimate
But something huge is coming up
And we're both included

It takes courage to enjoy it
The hardcore and the gentle
Big time sensuality

I don't know my future after this weekend
And I don't want to

 It takes courage to enjoy it
The hardcore and the gentle
Big time sensuality
Sensuality


One Day

 One day, it will happen
One day, one day
It will all come true.

 One day, when you're ready
One day, one day
When you're up to it

 The atmosphere
Will get lighter
And two suns ready
To shine just for you
I can feel it, I can feel it

One day, it will happen
One day, one day
It will all make sense.

One day, one day
You will blossom
One day, one day
When you're ready

An aeroplane
Will curve gracefully
Around the volcano
With the eruption that never lets you down

 I can feel it, I can feel it

And the beautifullest
Fireworks are burning
In the sky just for you
I can feel it, I can feel it
One day, one day, one day, one day
One day, one day, one day, one day


Aeroplane

I can not live
Peacefully without you
For even a moment
I miss you terribly
When you're away
 He's away
This ain't right
I'm alone
I'm taking an aeroplane
Across the world
To follow my heart

How come
Out of all the people in the world
Only one
Can make me complete
One word, one word on the phone
Makes me happy
One touch, but one touch directly
Makes me ecstatic
He's away
This ain't right
I'm alone
I'm taking an aeroplane
Across the world
To follow my heart

Come To Me

Come to me
I'll take care of you
Protect you
Calm, calm down
You're exhausted
Come lie down
You don't have to explain
I understand

 You know
That I adore you
You know
That I love you
So don't make me say it
It would burst the bubble
Break the charm

Jump off
Your building's on fire
And I'll catch you, I'll catch you
Destroy all that is keeping you down
And then i'll nurse you
I'll nurse you
I'll touch you

 You know
That I adore you
You know
That I love you
So don't make me say it
It would burst the bubble
Break the charm


Violently Happy

 Since I met you
This small town hasn't got room
For my big feelings

Violently happy
'Cause i love you
Violently happy
But you're not here
Violently happy
Come calm me down
Before I get into trouble

I tip-toe down to the shore
Stand by the ocean
Make it roar at me
And I roar back

Violently happy
'Cause I love you
Violently happy
But you're not here
Violently happy
Overemotional
Violently happy
I'll get into trouble
Real soon
If you don't get here
Baby

Violently happy
'Cause I love you
Violently happy
I'm aiming too high
Violently happy
It will get me into trouble
Violently happy
I'm driving my car
Too fast
With ecstatic music on

Violently happy
I'm getting too drunk
Violently happy
I'm daring people
To jump off roofs with me
Only you
Can clam me down
I'm aiming too high
Soothe me


The Anchor Song

 I live by the ocean
And during the night
I dive into it
Down to the bottom
Underneath all currents
And drop my anchor
This is where I'm staying
This is my home

 I live by the ocean
And during the night
I dive into it
Down to the bottom
Underneath all currents
And drop my anchor
This is where I'm staying
This is my home

Play Dead

 Darling stop confusing me
With your wishful thinking
Hopeful embraces
Don't you understand?
I have to go through this
I belong to here where
No-one cares and no-one loves
No light no air to live in
A place called hate
The city of fear
I play dead
It stops the hurting
I play dead
And the hurting stops
It's sometimes just like sleeping
Curling up inside my private tortures
I nestle into pain
Hug suffering
Caress every ache
I play dead
It stops the hurting

Post

 Army of me

Stand up
You've got to manage
I won't sympathize
Anymore

And if you complain once more
You'll meet an army of me
And if you complain once more
You'll meet an army of me

You're alright
There's nothing wrong
Self-sufficience please!
And get to work

And if you complain once more
You'll meet an army of me
And if you complain once more
You'll meet an army of me
Army of me

You're on your own now
We won't save you
Your rescue-squad
Is to exhausted

And if you complain once more
You'll meet an army of me
And if you complain once more
You'll meet an army of me
And if you complain once more
You'll meet an army of me
And if you complain once more
You'll meet an army of me
Army of me


Hyper-ballad

We live on a mountain
Right at the top
There's a beautiful view
From the top of the mountain
Every morning I walk towards the edge
And throw little things off
Like car-parts, bottles and cutlery
Or whatever I find lying around
It's become a habit
A way to start the day

I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

It's real early morning
No-one is awake
I'm back at my cliff
Still throwing things off
I listen to the sounds they make
On their way down
I follow with my eyes 'til they crash
Imagine what my body would sound like
Slamming against those rocks
When it lands
Will my eyes
Be closed or open

 I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

 I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

 I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

Safe up ( here with you ) ...


The modern things

All the modern things
Like cars and such
Have always existed
They've just been waiting in a mountain
For the right moment

*** Translations and transcripts by Tom Brenner ***

It’s oh so quiet

Shhhh, Shhhh
It's, oh, so quiet
It's, oh, so still
You're all alone
And so peaceful until...

You fall in love
Zing boom
The sky up above
Zing boom
Is caving in
Wow bam
You've never been so nuts about a guy
You wanna laugh you wanna cry
You cross your heart and hope to die
'Til it's over and then

Shhh, Shhh
It's nice and quiet
Shhh, Shhh
But soon again
Shhh, Shhh
Starts another big riot

You blow a fuse, zing boom
The devil cuts loose, zing boom
So what's the use, wow bam
Of falling in love

It's, oh, so quiet
It's, oh, so still
You're all alone
And so peaceful until...

You ring the bell, bim bam
You shout and you yell, hi ho ho
You broke the spell
Gee, this is swell you almost have a fit
This guy is "gorge" and I got hit
There's no mistake this is it

'Til it's over and then
It's nice and quiet
Shhh, Shhh
But soon again
Shhh, Shhh
Starts another big riot

You blow a fuse
Zing boom
The devil cuts loose
Zing boom
What's the use
Wow bam
Of falling in love

The sky caves in
The devil cuts loose
You blow blow blow blow blow your fuse
When you've fallen in love
Ssshhhhhh...


Enjoy

 I wish: I want to stay here
I wish: this be enough
I wish: I only love you
I wish: simplicity

Look at the speed out there
It magnetizes me to it
And I have no fear
I'm only into this to

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy, enjoy

I wish I'd only look
And didn't have to touch
I wish I'd only smell this
And didn't have to taste
How can I ignore
This is sex without touching
I'm going to explore
I'm only into this to

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy, enjoy

Youve been flirting again

All that she said was true
All that she said was true
Give her some time
Give her some space
All that she said was true

All that she meant was good
All that she meant was good
Give her some time
Give her some space
All that she meant was good

How you reacted was right
How you reacted was right
Give her some time
Give her some space
How you reacted was right


Isobel

In a forest pitch-dark
Glowed the tiniest spark
It burst into flame
Like me, like me

My name isobel
Married to myself
My love isobel
Living by herself

In a heart full of dust
Lives a creature called lust
It surprises and scares
Like me,like me

My name isobel
Married to myself
My love isobel
Living by herself

When she does it she means to
Moth delivers her message
Unexplained on your collar
Crawling in silence
A simple excuse
 Nana na nana, nana na nana
 Nana na nana, nana na nana

In a tower of steel
Nature forges a deal
To raise wonderful hell
Like me, like me

My name isobel
Married to myself
My love isobel
Living by herself

When she does it she means to
Moth delivers her message
Unexplained on your collar
Crawling in silence
A simple excuse

Possibly maybe

Your flirt finds me out
Teases the crack in me
Smittens me with hope
Possibly maybe, possibly maybe, possibly maybe.

As much as I definitely enjoy solitude
I wouldn't mind perhaps
Spending little time with you
Sometimes, sometimes

Possibly maybe probably love
Possibly maybe probably love

Uncertainty excites me
Baby
Who knows what's going to happen?
Lottery or car crash
Or you'll join a cult

Probably maybe, possibly love
This is probably maybe, possibly love, possibly

Mon petit vulcan
You're eruptions and disasters
I keep calm
Admiring the lava
I keep calm

Possibly maybe probably love
Possibly maybe probably love

Electric shocks?
I love them
With you dozen a day
But after a while I wonder
Where's that love you promised me?
Where is he ?

Possibly maybe probably love
Possibly maybe probably love

How can you offer me love like that?
My heart's burned
How can you offer me love like that?
I'm exhausted
Leave me alone

Possibly maybe, possibly maybe, possibly maybe.

Since we broke up
I'm using lipstick again
I'll suck my tongue
In remembrance of you

Possibly maybe, possibly maybe
Possibly maybe, possibly maybe
Possibly maybe, possibly maybe

I miss you

 I miss you
But I haven't met you yet
So special
But it hasn't happened yet
You are gorgeous
But I haven't met you yet
I remember
But it hasn't happened yet

And if you believe in dreams
Or what is more important
That a dream can come true
I, I will meet you
I was peaking

But it hasn't happened yet
I haven't been given
My best souvenir
I miss you
But I haven't met you yet
I know your habits
But wouldn't recognize you yet
 
And if you believe in dreams
Or what is more important
That a dream can come true
I miss you

I'm so impatient
I can't stand the wait
When will I get my cuddle?
Who are you?
 I know by now that you'll arrive
By the time I stop waiting
I miss you

Cover me

While I crawl into the unknown
Cover me

I'm going hunting for mysteries
Cover me

 I'm going to prove the impossible really exists
This is really dangerous
Cover me

But worth all the effort
Cover me

 I'm going to prove the impossible really exists

Headphones

Genius to fall asleep to your tape last night
So warm
Sounds go through the muscles
These abstract wordless
Movements, move move move move move
They start off cells that haven't been touched before
These cells are virgins
Waking up slowly

My headphones
They saved my life
Your tape
It lulled me to sleep
To sleep, to sleep

Nothing will be the same
I'm fast asleep
I like this resonance
It elevates me
I don't recognize myself
This is very interesting

My headphones
They saved my life
Your tape
It lulled me to sleep
To sleep, to sleep
I'm fast asleep now
I'm fast asleep

My headphones
They saved my life
Your tape
It lulled me to sleep
To sleep, to sleep

Possibly maybe probably love

Mon petit vulcan
You're eruptions and disasters
I keep calm
Admiring the lava
I keep calm

Possibly maybe probably love
Possibly maybe probably love

Electric shocks?
I love them
With you dozen a day
But after a while I wonder
Where's that love you promised me?
Where is he ?

Possibly maybe probably love
Possibly, poss-

How can you offer
Where's that love you
Where's that love you promised me?
Where is he ?

Possibly maybe

How can you offer me love like that?
My heart's burned
How can you offer me love like that?
I'm exhausted
Leave me alone

Possibly maybe
Possibly maybe
Possibly maybe

Hyper-ballad

We live on a mountain
Right at the top
There's a beautiful view
From the top of the mountain

Every morning I walk towards the edge
And throw little things off
Like car-parts, bottles and cutlery
Or whatever I find lying around
It's become a habit
A way to start the day

I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

It's real early morning
No-one is awake
I'm back at my cliff
Still throwing things off
I listen to the sounds they make
On their way down
I follow with my eyes 'til they crash
Imagine what my body would sound like
Slamming against those rocks
When it lands
Will my eyes
Be closed or open?

 I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

 I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

 I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

Safe up here with you
Safe up here with you
Safe up here with you

My spine

I adore
Back of necks
Beautifully shaven
Gives me,
Always, always, always, always, always, always,
A pretty rush down my spine

 All those boys
With fascinating fingers
Working creating
Touching their tools
Gives me,
Always, always, always, always, always, always,
A pretty rush down my spine
Huh

Tell me stories
Play me the tunes
That crack you up
 Gives me,
Always, always, always, always, always, always, always,
A pretty rush down my spine
Hah!


I miss you

Bjrk :

I miss you
But I haven't met you yet
You are gorgeous
But it hasn't happened yet
You are gorgeous
But I haven't met you yet
I remember
But it hasn't happened yet
So special
But it hasn't happened yet
And if you believe in dreams
Or what is more important
That a dream can come true
I will meet you
I was peaking
But it hasn't happened yet
I haven't been giving
My best souvenir
I miss you
But I haven't met you yet
I know your habits
But wouldn't regonize you yet
And if you believe in dreams
Or what is more important
That a dream can come true
I, I, I, I miss you

Rodney P :

I had a dream that I was missing you indeed
And if I miss you then you know that I'll be there with speed
I got that mister cool vibe for your mind, believe
I've never seen you but I've seen you've got the vibes I need
That's why I miss you, try to dismiss you, from my mind
Only for people often miss you but I seek to find
You gotta send me an emotion or a sign
Cause even though when all things must reveal in time
Still I miss you

Bjrk :

Miss you
I get so impatient
I can't stand the wait
When will I get my cuddle
Who are you?
I know by now that you'll arrive
By the time I stop waiting
Aaaaahhhhhhh Miss you
I miss you
So I miss you
I miss you
....
I miss you, miss you, miss you
...
I miss you....miss you

Isobel

In a forest pitch-dark
Glowed the tiniest spark
It burst into a flame
Like me, like me

My name Isobel
Married to myself
My love Isobel
Living by herself

In a heart full of dust
Lives a creature called lust
It surprises and scares
Like me,like me

My name Isobel
Married to myself
My love Isobel
Living by herself

Crawling in silence
A simple excuse
 Nana na nana, nana na nana
 Nana na nana, nana na nana

In a tower of steel
Nature forges a deal
To raise wonderful hell
Like me, like me

My name Isobel
Married to myself
My love Isobel
Living by herself

Crawling in silence
A simple excuse
Nana na nana, nana na nana X6

Youve been flirting again

You're all I ever wanted X2

All that she said was true
All that she said was true
Give her some time
Give her some space
All that she said was true

All that she ever meant was good
All that she meant was good
Give her some time
Give her some space
All that she meant was good

How you reacted was right
How you reacted was right
Give her some space
Give her some time
All that she said was true

You're all I ever wanted X5

Cover me

Cover me
I'm going hunting, hunting,
Mysteries
Crawl into the unknown
This is really dangerous
This is really dangerous
This is really dangerous
I'm going hunting, hunting, hunting,
Mysteries, mysteries, mysteries, mysteries,
( What, what, what, what , what .. )

Army of me

Arm, arm, arm, arm, arm, arm, arm,
Arm, arm, arm, arm, arm, arm,
Army of me.

Arm, arm, arm, arm, arm, arm, arm, arm

Arm, arm, arm, arm, arm, arm, arm, arm
Army of me.

Headphones

Genius to fall asleep to your tape last night
Sounds go through the muscles
These abstract wordless
Movements
They start off cells that haven't been touched before

Nothing will be the same
I like this resonance
It elevates me
I don't recognize myself
This is very interesting


Homogenic

Hunter

Ooooohhh... Ooooohhh...
Ooooohhh... Ooooohhh...

If travel is searching
And home has been found

I'm not stopping

I'm going hunting
I'm the hunter
I'll bring back the goods
But I don't know when

I thought I could organize freedom
How Scandinavian of me
You sussed it out, didn't you
Yeah!

You could smell it
So you left me on my own
To complete the mission
Now I'm leaving it all behind

I'm going hunting
I'm the hunter, I'm the hunter
I'm going hunting
I'm the hunter Ooooohhh... I'm the hunter
I'm the hunter Ooooohhh... I'm the hunter
I'm ... the ... hunter...

Ooooohhh... Ooooohhh...
Ooooohhh... Ooooohhh...

All these accidents,
That happen,
Follow the dot,
Coincidence,
Makes sense,
Only with you,
You don't have to speak,
I feel.

Emotional landscapes,
They puzzle me,
Then the riddle gets solved,
And you push me up to this

State of emergency,
How beautiful to be,
State of emergency,
Is where I want to be.

All that no-one sees,
You see,
What's inside of me,
Every nerve that hurts,
You heal,
Deep inside of me, oo-oohh,
You don't have to speak,
I feel.

Emotional landscapes,
They puzzle me - confuse,
Then the riddle gets solved,
And you push me up to this

State of emergency,
How beautiful to be,
State of emergency,
Is where I want to be.

Unravel

While you are away
My heart comes undone
Slowly unravels
In a ball of yarn
The devil collects it
With a grin
Our love
In a ball of yarn

He'll never return it

So when you come back
We'll have to make new love

He'll never return it

When you come back
We'll have to make new love


While you are away
My heart comes undone
Slowly unravels
In a ball of yarn
The devil collects it
With a grin
Our love, our love,
In a ball of yarn

He'll never return it

We'll have to make new love

He'll never return it

When you come back
We'll have to make new love


He'll never return it

When you come back
We'll have to make new love


Bachelorette

I'm a fountain of blood
In the shape of a girl
You're the bird on the brim
Hypnotised by the Whirl

Drink me, make me feel real
Wet your beak in the stream
Game we're playing is life
Love is a two way dream

Leave me now, return tonight
Tide will show you the way
If you forget my name
You will go astray
Like a killer whale
Trapped in a bay

I'm a path of cinders
Burning under your feet
You're the one who walks me
I'm your one way street

I'm a whisper in water
Secret for you to hear
You are the one who grows distant
When I beckon you near

Leave me now, return tonight
The tide will show you the way
If you forget my name
You will go astray
Like a killer whale
Trapped in a bay

I'm a tree that grows hearts
One for each that you take
You're the intruder hand
I'm the branch that you break

All neon like

Not 'til you halo all over me
I'll come over
Not 'til it shimmers 'round your skull
I'll be yours

I weave for you
The marvellous web
Glow in the dark threads
All neon like

The cocoon surrounds you
Embraces all
So you can sleep
Foetus-style

And they will assist us
'Cause we're asking for help
And the luminous beam
It feeds you,
Henh-yeah!, henh-yeah

The soft distortion
Fills you up
Nourish nourish
Your turtleheart

And they will assist us
'Cause we're asking for help
And the luminous beam
It feeds you
Henh-yeah!, yeah!

Don't get angry with yourself
Don't, don't get angry with yourself
I'll heal you

With a razorblade
I'll cut a slit open
And the luminous beam
Feeds you honey, heals you

Don't get angry with yourself X4

I'll heal you, i'll heal you, luminous, i'll heal you

5 years

You think you're denying me of something
Well I've got plenty
You're the one who's missing out
But you won't notice
'Til after five years
If you'll live that long
You'll wake up
All loveless

I dare you
To take me on
I dare you
To show me your palms

I'm so bored with cowards
That say they want
Then they can't handle

You can't handle love
You can't handle love
You just can't handle

I dare you
To take me on
I dare you
To show me your palms

What's so scary
Not a threat in sight
You just can't handle
You can't handle love

You can't handle love, baby
You can't handle love
It's obvious
You can't handle

I dare you
To take me on
I dare you
To show me your palms

I'm so bored of cowards
That say they want
Then they can't handle

You can't handle love, baby
You can't handle love,
It's obvious
You can't handle

I dare you, I dare you
I dare you, I dare you

Alarm call

Wo-oo-ooh hoh!

I have walked this earth
And watched people

It doesnt scare me at all

I can be sinsere
And say I like them

It doesnt scare me at all

** Gibberish **

You can't say no to hope
Can't say no to happiness

I want to go on a mountain-top
With a radio and good batteries
And play a joyous tune and
Free the human race
From suffering

It doesnt scare me at all

I'm no fucking buddhist
But this is enlightenment

The less room you give me
The more space I've got

It doesnt scare me at all

** Gibberish **

You can't say no to hope
Can't say no to happiness

It doesnt scare me at all

I want to be on a mountain-top
With a radio and good batteries
And play a joyous tune and
Free the
A-human race
From suffering

It doesnt scare me at all

This is an alarm-call
So wake-up, wake-up now
Woo-oo-ooh!
Today has never happened
And it doesnt frighten me

It doesnt scare me at all

You can't say no to hope
You can't say no to happiness
Wo-oo-ooh!

It doesnt scare me at all, wo-oo-ooh! ...

All is full of love

You'll be given love
You'll be taken care of
You'll be given love
You have to trust it

Maybe not from the sources
You have poured yours
Maybe not from the directions
You are staring at

Twist your head around
It's all around you
All is full of love
All around you

All is full of love
You just aint receiving
All is full of love
Your phone is off the hook
All is full of love
Your doors are all shut
All is full of love!

All is full of love, all is full of love
All is full of love, all is full of love ...

In your eyes
Look at me entrancer

Clatter, crash, clack

They greet you
And say
We tap out a rhythm
And sweep you away

A room full of noises
That spins you around

I've Seen It All

Bjrk
I've seen it all
I have seen the trees
I have seen the willow leaves
Dancing in the breeze

Tom Yorke
I've seen a man killed
By his best friend
And lives that were over
Before they were spent.

Bjrk & Tom Yorke
I've seen what I was
And I know what I'll be
I've seen it all
There is no more to see

Bjrk
You haven't seen elephants
Kings or Peru

Tom Yorke
I'm happy to say
I had better to do

Bjrk
What about China
Have you seen the Great Wall

Tom Yorke
All walls are great
If the roof doesn't fall
And the man you will marry
The home you will share

Bjrk
To be honest
I really don't care

[gibberish]

Tom Yorke
You've never been
To Niagara Falls

Bjrk
I have seen water
It's water, that's all

Tom Yorke
The Eiffel Tower
The Empire State

Bjrk
My pulse was as high
On my very first date

Tom Yorke
And your grandson's hand
As he plays with your hair

Bjrk
To be honest
I really don't care

[gibberish]

Bjrk & Yorke
I've seen it all
I've seen the dark
I've seen the brightness
In one little spark
I've seen what I chose
And I've seen what I need
And that is enough
To want more would be greed
I've seen what I was
And I know what I'll be
I've seen it all
There is no more to see

Tom Yorke
You've seen it all
And all you have seen
You can always review on
Your own little screen
The light and the dark
The big and the small
Just keep in mind
You need no more at all

Bjrk & Tom Yorke
You've seen what you were
And know what you'll be
You've seen it all
There is no more to see

Sleepy-head, sleepy-head

All the love above

Comfort and protection

But don't ask me
What's gonna happen next
I know the future

All the hurt in the world

There's nothing I'd love to do more
Than spare you from that burden
It's gonna be hard
If I only could
Shelter you
From that pain
Just to make it easier on you

You are gonna have to find out for yourself
You are gonna have to find out for yourself
You are gonna have to find out for yourself

 In The Musicals

Why do I love it so much
What kind of magic is this
How come I can't help adore it
It's just another musical

No one minds it at all
If I'm having a ball
This is a musical

And there is always someone to catch me
There is always someone to catch me
There is always someone to catch me
There is always someone to catch me
When I'd fall

Why do I love you so much
What kind of magic is this

How come I can't help adore you
You are in a musical

I didn't mind it at all
You were having a ball
This is a musical

And you were always there to catch me
You were always there to catch me
You were always there to catch me
You were always there to catch me
When I'd fall

I don't mind it at all
If you're having a ball
This is a musical

And I'll always be there to catch you
I will always be there to catch you

Train-whistles, sweet clementine
Blueberries dancers in line
Cobwebs, a bakery sign

Oh, a sweet clementine
Oh, dancers in line

If living is seeing
I'm holding my breath
In wonder, I wonder
What happen's next
A new world
A new day to see
See, see

I'm softly walking on air
Halfway to heaven frontier
Sunlight unfolds in my hair
Oh, I'm walking on air
Oh, to heaven frontier

In wonder, I wonder
What happens next
A new world
A new day to see
See, see

Vespertine

Hidden Place

Through the warmthest
Cord of care
Your love was sent to me

I'm not sure
What to do with it
Or where to put it

I'm so close to tear
And so close to
Simply calling you up
And simply suggesting

We go to the hidden place
That we go to the hidden place
We go to the hidden place
We go to a hidden place

Now I have
Been slightly shy
And I can smell a pinch of hope
To almost have allowed once fingers
To stroke
The fingers I was given to touch with
But careful, careful
There lies my passion, hidden
There lies my love
I'll hide it under a blanket
Lull it to sleep

I'll keep it in a hidden place
I'll keep it in a hidden place
Keep it in a hidden place
Keep it in a hidden place

He's
The beautifullest
Fragilest
Still strong
Dark and divine
And the littleness of his movements
Hides himself
He invents a charm
That makes him invisible
Hides in the air
Can I hide there too?
Hide in the air of him
Seek solace
Sanctuary

In that hidden place
In a hidden place
In a hidden place
We'll stay in a hidden place
Ooohh in a hidden place
We'll live in a hidden place
We'll be in a hidden place
In a hidden place

Cocoon

Who would have known
That a boy like him
Would have entered me lightly
Restoring my blisses

Who would have known
That a boy like him
After sharing my core
Would stay going nowhere

Who would have known
A beauty this immense
Who would have known
A saintly trance
Who would have known
Miraculous breath
To inhale a beard
Loaded with courage

Who would have known
That a boy like him
Possessed of magical
Sensitivity
Would approach a girl like me
Who caresses cradles his head
In a bosom

He slides inside
Half awake, half asleep
We faint back
Into sleephood
When I wake up
The second time
In his arms
Gorgeousness
He's still inside me

Who would have known
Who ahhh
Who would have known

A train of pearls
Cabin by cabin
Is shot precisely
Across an ocean

From a mouth
From a
From a mouth
Of a girl like me
To a boy
To a boy
To a boy

It's Not Up To You

I wake up
And the day feels
Broken
I tilt my head
I'm trying to get an angle
'Cause the evening
I've always longed for
It could still happen

How do I master
The perfect day
Six glasses of water
Seven phonecalls

If you leave it alone
It might just happen
Anyway

It's not up to you
Oh it never really was
It's not up to you
Oh it never really was
It's not up to you
Well it never really was
It's not up to you

If you wake up
And the day feels
Ah broken
Just lean into the crack
(Just lean into the crack)
And it will tremble
Ever so nicely
Notice
How it sparkles
Down there

I can decide
What I give
But it's not up to me
What I get given
Unthinkable surprises
About to happen
But what they are

It's not up to you
Well it never really was
It's not up to you
Oh it never really was
It's not up to you
Oh it never really was
It's not up to you
Oh, me, share
It's not up to you
It's not up to you
Oh, it never really was
It's not up to you
Well, it never really was
It's not up to you
It's not up to you
It's not up to you
It's not up to you

There's too much
Clinging
To peak
There's too much
Pressure

Pagan Poetry

Pedalling through
The dark currents
I find
An accurate copy
A blueprint
Of the pleasure
In me

Swirling black lilies totally ripe
A secret code carved
Swirling black lilies totally ripe
A secret code carved

He offers
A handshake
Crooked
Five fingers
They form a pattern
Yet to be matched

On the surface simplicity
But the darkest pit in me
It's pagan poetry
Pagan poetry

Morsecoding signals (signals)
They pulsate (wake me up) and wake me up
(pulsate) from my hibernate

On the surface simplicity
Swirling black lilies totally ripe
But the darkest pit in me
It's pagan poetry
Swirling black lilies totally ripe
Pagan poetry

Swirling black lilies totally ripe

I love him, I love him
I love him, I love him
I love him, I love him
I love him, I love him
She loves him, she loves him

This time
She loves him, she loves him
I'm gonna keep it to myself
She loves him, she loves him
She loves him, she loves him
This time
I'm gonna keep me all to myself
She loves him, she loves him
And he makes me want to hand myself over
She loves him, she loves him
She loves him, she loves him
And he makes me want to hand myself over

Suggests your shape
I tumbled down
On my knees
Fill the mouth
With snow
The way it melts
I wish
To melt
Into you
Aurora
Ahhh...
Utter mundane

Spark the sun off
Spark the sun off
Spark the sun off
Spark the sun off me


An echo a stain

She touched
My arm
And smiled

One of these days
Soon
Very soon
Love you 'til then
Love you 'til then

Feel my breath
On your neck
And your heart
Will race

Don't say no to me
You can't say no to me
I won't see you
Denied

I'm sorry you saw that
I'm sorry he did it
An echo
A stain
A stain

I can't say no to you
I can't say no to you
Say nothing

Free falling
Complete

Sun in My Mouth

( From the poem "Wade" by E.E. Cummings )

I will wade out
Till my thighs are steeped
In burning flowers
I will take the sun in my mouth
And leap into the ripe air
Alive with closed eyes
To dash against darkness

In the sleeping curves of my body
Shall enter fingers
Of smooth mastery
With chasteness of sea-girls
Will I complete the mystery
Of my flesh
Will I complete the mystery
Of my flesh
My flesh

Heirloom

( Original from : Console - Rocket In The Pocket : Crabcraft )

I have a recurrent dream
Everytime I loose my voice
I swallow little glowing lights
My mother and son baked for me

And during the night
They do a trapeze walk
Until they're in the sky
Right above my bed

While I'm asleep
My mother and son pour into me
Warm glowing oil
Into my wide open throat

I have a recurrent dream
Everytime I feel a hoarseness
I swallow warm glowing lights
My mother and son baked for me, oh

They make me feel so much better
They make me feel better

We have a recurrent dream
Everytime we loose our voices
We dream swallow little lights
Our mother and son bake for us

During the night
They do a little trapeze walk
Until they're in the sky
Right above our heads
While we're asleep
My mother and son pour into us
Pour into us
Warm glowing oil
Into our wide open throats

I have a recurrent dream

They make me feel better
They make me feel better

Harm of will

If there is a troubador washing
It is he
If there is a man about town
It is he
If there is one to be sought
It is he
If there are nine she is
They are bought for me

This way is as is she
And he placed her
Unclothed
Long long longlegged
Atop of the family tree

And if he has chosen the point
While she is under him
Then leave her coily placed crouched sucking him
For it is I with
Her on knee

** Gibberish **

I leave her
Without pith or feel
And leave her be
Leave her be
For he controls what therell be
He makes his face known to none
For if he is seen
Then all will
And all will know
Know me

Unison

One hand love the other
So much on me

Born stubborn me
Will always be
Before you count
One two three
I will have grown my own private branch
Of this tree

You gardener
You discipliner
Domestically
I can obey all of your rules
And still be, be

I never thought I would compromise
I never thought I would compromise
I never thought I would compromise

Let's unite tonight
We shouldn't fight
Embrace you tight
Let's unite tonight

I thrive best hermit style
With a beard and a pipe
And a parrot on each side
But now I can't do this without you

I never thought I would compromise
I never thought I would compromise
I never thought I would compromise

Let's unite tonight
We shouldn't fight
Embrace you tight
Let's unite tonight

One hand love the other
So much on me

Let's unite tonight
We shouldn't fight
Embrace you tight
Let's unite tonight

Let's unite tonight
We shouldn't fight
Embrace you tight
Let's
Ooohhhh ooohh

Pleasure is all mine

The pleasure is all mine
To get to be the generous one
Is the strongest stance

The pleasure is all mine
To finally let go and evenly
Be flown

Who gives most
Who gives most
Who gives most

The pleasure is all mine
Women like us we strengthen most host-like

When in doubt, give
When in doubt,  give
When in doubt, give

Show me forgiveness

Show me forgiveness
For having lost faith in myself
And let my own interior up
To inferior forces
The shame is endless
But if soon start forgiveness
The girl might live

My farm
My farm and yours
Sleeps happily at peace
Falls snow
Silent at dusk on earth
My grass
My grass and yours
Keeps the earth til spring

Nesting spring
Hid at the hill's root
Awake as are we
Faith in life
Quiet cold spring
Eye of the depths
Into the firmament
Staring still in the night

Far away
Wakes the great world
Mad with grim enchantment
Disquieted
Fearful of night and day
Your eyes
Fearless and serene
Smile bright at me

My hope
Your blest smile
Rouses verse from sleep
The earths rests
Silent in arms of snow
Lily white
Closes her blue eyes
My little girl

Who is it ?

His embrace, a fortress
It fuels me and places
A skeleton of trust
Right beneath us
Bone by bone
Stone by stone

If you ask yourself
Patiently
And carefully
Who is it?
Who is it?

Who is it - that never lets you down?
Who is it - that gave you back your crown?
And the ornaments are
They're going around
Now they're handing it over
They're handing it over
Handing it over

Who is it - that never lets you down?
Who is it - that gave you back your crown?
And the ornaments are
They're going around
Now -- they're handing it over
Handing it over

He demands a closeness
We all have earned a lightness
Carry my joy on the left
Carry my pain on the right

If you ask yourself
Now patiently
And carefully
Who is it?

Who is it - that never lets you down?
Who is it - that gave you back your crown?
And the ornaments are
They're going around
And I'm handing it over
Handing it over
Handing

Who is it - that never lets you down?
Who is it - that gave you back your crown?
And the ornaments are
They're going around
Now I'm handing it over
Handing it over

Submarine

When will it be time
To document
Do it now!
This submarine behaviour
Do it now!
When time?
To return
Do it now!
Do it now!
Shake us out of the heavy deep sleep
Shake us now!
Do it now!
Do it now!
Shake us out of the heavy deep sleep
Do it now!

Desired constellation

It's tricky when
You feel someone
Has done
Something on your behalf

It's slippery when
Your sense of justice
Murmurs underneath

And is asking you
How am I going to make it right?
How am I going to make it right?

With a palm full of stars
I throw them like dice
(repeatedly)

On the table
(repeat - repeatedly)
I shake them like dice
And throw them on the table
Repeatedly
(repeatedly)
Until the desired constellation appears

How am I going to make it right?
How am I going to make it right?
How am I going to make it right?

(And you hear - how am I going to make it right?)

How am I going to make it right?
How am I going to make it right?

(How am I going to make it right?)

Oceana

One breath away
From Mother Oceania
Your nimble feet make prints
In my sand

You have done
Good for yourselves
Since you left my wet embrace
And crawled ashore

Every boy is a snake is a lily
Every pearl is a lynx is a girl

Sweet like harmony
Made into flesh
You dance by my side
Children sublime

You show me continents
I see the islands
You count the centuries
I blink my eyes

Hawks and sparrows
Race in my waters
Stingrays are floating
Across the sky

Little ones
My sons and my daughters
Your sweat is salty - I am why
I am why
I am why
Your sweat is salty - I am why
I am why
I am why

Sonnets / unrealities xi

( E.E. Cummings Poem - 'it may not always be so' )

It may not always be so
And I say
And if your lips
Which I have loved
Should touch another's
And your dear strong fingers clutch
Her heart
As mine in time
Not far away

If on another's face your sweet hair lay
In such a silence
As I know
Or such great writhing words
As, uttering overmuch
Stand helpelessly before the spirit at bay

If this should be
I say
If this should be
You of my heart
Send me a little word
That I may go
Unto her
And take her hands
Saying

Accept all happiness from me

Then I shall turn my face
And hear one bird
Sing terribly afar
In the lost lands

Mouth's cradle

There is yet
Another one
That follows me
Wherever I go
And supports me
Ah, this tooth is warmthlike
This tooth is warmthlike
This tooth is warmthlike

And these teeth
Are
A ladder up to his mouth
All these teeth are a ladder
That I walk
That you can walk to
If you want
If you want, up to
The mouth, mouth's cradle
Up to the mouth's cradle

He always has a hope for me
Always sees me when nothing else
And everyone have left
Can care
That ghost is brighter than anyone
And fulfills me with hope
Those beams assure me

And you can use
These teeth
As a
Ladder up to
Mouths cradle
The mouths cradle
And you can follow
These notes I'm singing
Up to the mouth's cradle
The mouth's cradle

The simplicity of the ghostlike beast
The purity of what he wants
And where it goes
Always love
Always loves you
Always loves with, infrared love

And you can use
Those teeth
As a ladder up to
Mouth's cradle
Mouth's cradle
You can use
Those teeth
Follow my voice
Tooth by tooth
Up to the
Mouth's cradle
The mouth's cradle

I need a shelter to build an altar
Away from all the Osama's and Bushes

I need a shelter to, to build an altar
Away from all the Osama's and Bushes

Triumph of a heart

 The nerves are sending
Shimmering signals
All through my fingers
The veins support
Blood that gushes
Pulsively towards

The triumph of a heart - that gives all : that gives all
The triumph of a heart - that gives all : that gives all

The stubborn trunks
Of these legs of mine
Serve as pathways
For my favourite fuel
Heading upwards towards
My kidneys

The triumph of a heart - that gives all : that gives all
The triumph of a heart - that gives all : that gives all

Smooth
Soft, red
Velvety lungs
Are pushing a network
Of oxygen joyfully
Through a nose
Through a mouth
But all enjoys
All enjoys

The triumph of a heart - that gives all : that gives all
The triumph of a heart - that gives all : that gives all
The triumph of a heart - that gives all : that gives all
The triumph of a heart - that gives all : that gives all

Komid

( Japanese Bonus Track )

It means COME in Icelandic.
She sings her infamous "alt sem hann sr" which is a based on her native Icelandic.
It is said to mean something like "everything that he sees."
The song is sung in gibberish. She does sing "hn er komið", which is Icelandic for "she is coming."
But to be grammatically correct, it would be "hn hefur komið" or "hn kom"

Drawing Restraint 9

Gratitude

( Vocals : Will Oldham )

July 13, 1946

Dear General MacArthur,

With your permission
I offer wishes of good health
During this heat
That burns anything

The words I slowly put together
Do not flow easily, they only fill my heart

Recently, fulfilling
Your heart’s desire
You removed the whaling
Moratorium.
Your gesture brings
A much needed food
To our community
And families

The words I slowly put together
Do not flow easily, they only fill my heart

A million year old fossil
I send to you
This comes from my family
And the ancient sea
A prehistoric impression
Of the modern krill
She feeds the noble whale
And offers you longevity

The words I slowly put together
Do not flow easily, they only fill my heart

Finally, please take good care in the heat.

Sincerely yours,
Shizuka

Vessel, host, occidental guests,
Figure and field, both, carrier, carried.
Holographic paradigm,
The whole in every part.

Warm, viscous body, cooling
In marine air embrace.
Curing, skinning over
A still molten core.

Vessel, host, occidental guests,
Skin seascape in suspension.
Holographic entrypoint,
Each part reflects the whole.

Skin slit, consensual knife,
She cuts his figure, he flenses her field.
External resistance freeing,
Internal relation emerging.

Vessel, host, occidental guests,
To pattern, comes blood, giving form.
Holographic condition,
The whole in every part.

Warm blood, terrestrial guests,
Take to the southern sea, breathing.
Antarctic host and vessel, proud,
Cetacean guests returning.

*** Thanx a lot to www.Bjork.com for this translation ***

Into pattern
Flowing blood
Giving form

In every part
The whole you see

Into pattern
Flowing blood
Giving form

From the moment of commitment, nature conspires to help you
From the moment of commitment, nature conspires to help you
From the moment of commitment, nature conspires to help you

Nature conspires to help you

Volta

Earth intruders

We are the earth intruders
We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches

Turmoil! Carnage!

Here come the earth intruders
We are the paratroopers
Stampede of sharp shooters
Comes right from voodoo

With our feet thumping
With our feet marching
Grinding skeptics
Into the soil

Shower of goodness coming to
End the doubt pouring over
Shower of goodness coming to end

We are the earth intruders
We are the sharp shooters
Flock of parashooters
Necessary voodoo

I have guided my bones
Through some voltage
And loved them still
And loved them too

Metallic carnage!
Feriocity!
Feel the speed!

We are the earth intruders
We are the sharp shooters
Flock of parashooters
Necessary voodoo

There is turmoil out there
Carnage! Rambling!
What is to do but dig
Dig bones out of earth

Mudgraves! Timber!
Morbid trenches!

Here come the earth intruders
Stampede of resistance
We are the canoneers
Necessary voodoo

And the beast
With many heads
And arms rolling
Steamroller!

We are the earth intruders
We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches

Forgive this tribe

We are the earth intruders
We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches

We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches
We are the earth intruders

We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches
Marching

We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches
Marching

Wanderlust

I am leaving this harbour
Giving urban a farewell
Its habitants seem too keen on God
I cannot stomach their rights and wrong

I have lost my origin
And I don't want to find it again
Rather sailing into nature's laws
And be held by ocean's paws

Wanderlust
Relentlessly craving wanderlust
Peel off the layers
Until you get to the core

Did I imagine it would be like this
Was it something like this I wished for
Or will i want more

Lust for comfort
Suffocates the soul
This relentless
Restlessness
Liberates me
Sets me free

I feel at home whenever
The unknown surrounds me
I receive its embrace
Aboard my floating house

Wanderlust
Relentlessly craving wanderlust
Peel off the layers
Until you get to the core

Did i imagine it would be like this
Was it something like this I wished for
Or will i want more

Wanderlust
From island to island
Wanderlust
United in movement
Wonderful
I enjoy it with you

Wanderlust
Wanderlust
Can you spot a pattern

Relentlessly restless
Restless relentlessly
Restless relentlessly

Can you spot a pattern

The dull flame of desire

Bjrk :
I love your eyes, my dear
Their splendid, sparkling fire

Antony :
When suddenly you raise them so
To cast a swift embracing glance

Bjrk :
Like lightning flashing in the sky
But there's a charm that is greater still

Antony :
When my love's eyes are lowered
When all is fired by passion's kiss

Bjrk :
And through the downcast lashes
I see the dull flame of desire

Antony :
And through the downcast lashes
I see the dull flame of desire

Bjrk :
I love your eyes, my dear
Their splendid, sparkling fire
When suddenly you raise them so
To cast a swift embracing glance

Like lightning flashing in the sky
But there's a charm that is greater still
When my love's eyes are lowered
When all is fired by passion's kiss

And through the downcast lashes
I see the dull flame of desire
And through the downcast lashes
I see the dull flame of desire

Antony :
Dull flame

Bjrk :
I see the dull flame of desire

Antony :

I see the dull flame

Bjrk :
I see the dull flame

Antony :
I love your eyes, my dear
Their splendid, sparkling fire
When suddenly you raise them so
To cast a swift embracing glance

Like lightning flashing in the sky
But there's a charm that is greater still
When my love's eyes are lowered
When all is fired by passion's kiss

And through the downcast lashes

Through the downcast lashes

Innocence

I once had no fears
None at all
And then when I had some
To my surprise I grew to like both
Scared or brave or without them
The thrill of fear
Thought I’d never admit it
The thrill of fear
Now greatly enjoyed with courage

When I once was
Untouchable
Innocence roared
Still amazes
When I once was
Innocent
It’s still here
But in different places

Neurosis only attaches itself to
Fertile ground where it can flourish
The thrill of fear
Thought I’d never admit it
The thrill of fear
Now greatly enjoyed with courage

When I once was fearless
Innocence roared
Still amazes
Untouchable innocence
It’s still here
But in different places

Fear is a powerful drug
Overcome it and you think you can do anything

Should I save myself for later
Or generously give
Fear of loosing energy is draining
It’s locks up your chest
Shuts down the heart
Miserly stingy

Let’s open up, share !

When I once was fearless
Innocence roared
Still amazes
Untouchable innocence
It’s still here
But in different places

*** Thanx a lot to rir for this one ***

I see who you are

I see who you are
Behind the skin and the muscles
I see who you are
And when you'll get older later

I will see the same girl
The same soul
Lioness, fireheart
Passionate lover

And afterwards
Later this century
When you and I have
Become corpses

Let's celebrate now
All this flesh on our bones
Let me push you
Up against me
Tightly
And enjoy every bit of you

Let's celebrate now
All this flesh on our bones
Let me push you
Up against me
Tightly

Let's celebrate now
All this flesh on our bones
And enjoy every bit of you

I see who you are

Vertebrae by vertebrae

Up-on-the-toe
There is a view
Up-on-the-toe
And the spine
Straight and erect
Hungry and curious
Up-on-the-toe
Looking forward to

The air is thinner here

She came here to lose face
Got down on her knees
The beast is back
On 4 legs
Set her clock to the moon
Raises her spine

Vertebrae by vertebrae

Up-on-the-toe
Looking

I have been filled with
Steam for months, for years
Same old cloud
Claustrophobic in me

Let it burst
Like old train sounds
Make them leave me, nature

Vertebrae
By vertebrae
By vertebrae
By vertebrae
By vertebrae

My arms ooze out of my shoulders
And the arms ooze out of my shoulders

I curl my tail
Inwards, inwards
Set my clock on the moon

Vertebrae by vertebrae

Please release
This pressure off me

Please release
This pressure off me

Please release
This pressure off me

Pneumonia

Get over the sorrow, girl
The world is always going to be made of this
You can trust in it
Unless you breath in
Bravely

I adore how you simply surrender to high
And your lungs
They're mourning
T-b style

All the stillborn love that could have happened
All the moments you should have embraced
All the moments you should have not locked up

Understand
So clearly

To shut yourself up
Would be the hugest crime of them all
Hugest crime of them all
You're just crying after all
To not want them humans around any more

Get over that sorrow, girl
Get over it

Hope

Here's my version of it, internal whirlwind
Here's my version of it, internal whirlwind
Here's my version of it, internal whirlwind

Whats the lesser of two evils
If a suicide bomber made to look pregnant
Manages to kill her target or not
Whats the lesser of two evils

Whats the lesser of two evils
If she kills them or dies in vain
Nature has fixed no limits on our hopes
Whats the lesser of two evils

Whats the lesser of two evils
If her bump was fake or if it was real

Here's my version of it, internal whirlwind
I have fostered since childhood

Well, I dont care
Love is all
I dare to drown
To be proven wrong

Down the corridor
I send warmth, I send warmth
Down the staircase
I send warmth, I send warmth

Thank you for again
To get to be able
To send warmth, to send warmth
Perhaps I set you too free, too fast, too young

But the intentions were pure
But the intentions were pure

My juvenile
My juvenile
My juvenile

I truly say
You are my biggest love
I clumsily tried to
Free you from me
One last embrace
To tie a sacred ribbon

This is an offer to better the last let-go
This is an offer to better the last let-go
This is an offer to better the last let-go

The intentions were pure

Biophilia

Moon

As the lukewarm hands of the gods
Came down and gently picked my adrenaline pearls
They placed them in their mouths
And rinsed all of the fear out
Nourished them with their saliva

All rested

As if the healthiest past-time
Is being in life-threatening circumstances
And once again be reborn

All birthed and happy
All birthed and happy
All birthed and happy
All birthed and happy

Best way to start-a-new
Is to fail miserably
Fail at loving
And fail at giving
Fail at creating a flow
Then realign the whole
And kick into the starthole

And kick into the starthole
And kick into the starthole

To risk all is the end all and the beginning all
To risk all is the end all and the beginning all

Thunderbolt

Stirring at water's edge
Cold froth on my twig
My mind in whirls
Wanders around desire

May I, can I or have I too often
Craving miracles
May I, can I or have I too often now
Craving miracles
Craving miracles

No one imagines the light shock I need
And Ill never know
From who's hands deeply humble
Dangerous gifts as such to mine come

May I, should I or have I too often
Craving miracles
May I, can I or have I too often
Craving miracles
Craving miracles

My romantic gene is dominant
And it hungers for union
Universal intimacy
All embracing

May I, should I or have I too often
Craved miracles
May I, can I or have I too often
Craved miracles
Craved

Waves irregularly striking
Wind stern in my face
Thunderstorm come
Scrape those barnacles of me

May I, may I or should I too often
Crave miracles
May I or should I or have I too often

All my body parts are one
As lightning hits my spine
Sparkling
Prime runs through me
Revive my wish
Inviolable

May I, can I or have I too often
Craving miracles
May I, can I, should I or have I too often
Craving miracles

Crystalline

Underneath our feet
Crystals grow like plants
Listen how they grow
I'm blinded by the light
Listen how they glow
In the core of the earth
Listen how they grow

Crystalline
Internal nebula
Crystalline
Rocks growing slowmo
I conquer claustrophobia
And demand the light

We mimic the openness
Of the ones we love
Dovetail our generosity
Equalize the flow

With our hearts
We chisel quartz
To reach love

Crystalline
Internal nebula
Rocks growing slowmo

Dovetail our generosity
Equalize the flow

We chisel quartz
To reach love

Internal nebula
Rocks growing slowmo

I conquer claustrophobia

And demand the light

Octagon polygon
Pipes of an organ
Sonic branches
Murmuring drone

Crystallizing galaxies
Spread out like my fingers

Crystalline
Internal nebula
Rocks growing slowmo
Crystalline
I conquer claustrophobia
Crystalline
And demand the light

It's the sparkle you become
When you conquer anxiety
It's the sparkle you become
When you conquer anxiety

Cosmogony

Heaven
Heaven's bodies
Whirl around me
Make me wonder

And they say, back then our universe
Was an empty sea, until a silver fox
And her cunning mate began to sing
A song that became the world we know

Heaven
Heaven's bodies
Whirl around me
Make me wonder

And they say, back then our universe
Was a coal-black egg, until the god inside
Burst out and from its shattered shell
He made what became the world we know

Heaven
Heaven's bodies
Whirl around me
Make me wonder

And they say, back then our universe
Was an endless land, until our ancestors
Woke up and before they went back to sleep
They carved it up into the world we know

Heaven
Heaven's bodies
Whirl around me
Make wonder

And they say, back then our universe
Wasn't even there, until a sudden bang
And then there was light, was sound, was matter
And it all became the world we know

Heaven
Heaven's bodies
Whirl around me
Dance eternal

Hollow

Hollow
My ancestors have access
Hollow
I'm falling down the abyss
Hollow
Looking for some answers

Generations of mothers sailing in
Somehow they all were shipfolks

Hollow
The ground is opening up
Swallows
Me up

The trunk of dna

Now come forth
All species
Hollow

Like a bead in necklace
Thread me
Upon this chain
I'm part of it
The everlasting necklace

Jewels after jewels after jewels after
Jewels after jewels after jewels

I yearn to be belong
Let me belong
Let me belong

Virus

Like a virus needs a body
As soft tissue feeds on blood
Someday Ill find you, the urge is here

Like a mushroom on a tree trunk
As the protein transmutates
I knock on your skin
And I am in

The perfect match
You and me
I adapt, contagious
You open up, saying welcome

Like a flame that seeks explosives
As gun powder needs a war
I feast inside you, my host is you

The perfect match
You and I
You fail to resist
My crystalline charm

Like a virus
Patient hunter
I'm waiting for you
Im starving for you

My sweet adversary
My sweet adversary
My sweet adversary

Sacrifice

Why can't you give her room
Respect her spatial needs
I feel you compress her
Into a small space

With clairvoyance
She knew what you needed
And she gave it to you
Now her desires are repressed
Arrows in the flesh

When she found your love
Her nature bowed her head
She surrendered
She renounced the world for you
Now she's poisoned by demands
You cannot answer

Why this sacrifice
Now she regrets the whole thing
A delayed reaction
When she left her craft voluntarily
For your nest, for your love
Did you understand
Appreciate

Build a bridge to her
Initiate a touch
Before it's too late
Say the words to her
That will make her shine
Tell her that you love her

Your generosity will show
In the volume of her glow
Your generosity will show
In the volume of her glow

Your generosity will show
In the volume of her glow

Mutual Core

I shuffle around
The tectonic plates
In my chest
You know I gave it all
Trying to match our continents
To change seasonal shift
To form a mutual core

As fast as your fingernail grows
The Atlantic ridge drifts
To counteract distance
You know I gave it all
Can you hear the effort
Of the magnetic strife
Shuffling of columns
To form a mutual core

This eruption undoes stagnation
You didn't know that I had it in me
Withheld your love, an unspent capsule
I didn't know you had it in you

You hid the key to our continuity
I didn't know you had it in you
This eruption undoes stagnation
You didn't know, you didn't know

What you resist persists
Nuance makes heat
To counteract distance
I know you gave it all

Offered me harmony
If things were done your way
My Eurasian plate subsumed
Forming a mutual core

This eruption undoes stagnation
You didn't know I had it in me
Withheld your love, an unspent capsule
I didn't know you had it in you

This eruption undoes stagnation
You didn't know I had it in me
This eruption undoes stagnation
You didn't know, you didn't know

Solstice

When your eyes pause on the ball
That hangs on the third branch from the Star
You remember why it is dark, and why it gets light again

The Earth, like the heart, slopes in its seat
And like that it travels along an elliptical path
Drawn into the darkness

An unpolished pearl in sky-black palm of hands
Flickering sun-flame

And then you remember that you're yourself
You are a light-bearer, a light-bearer
Receiving radiance from others

Flickering sun-flame
Unpolished Earth in the palm of hand

 

Vulnicura

Stonemilker

A juxtapositioning fate
Find our mutual coordinate

Moments of clarity are so rare
I better document this
At last the view is fierce
All that matters is

Who is open chested
And who has coagulated
Who can share
And who has shut down the chances

Show me emotional respect
Oh, respect, oh respect
I have emotional, oh needs, oh needs
I wish to synchronize our feelings
Our feelings, our, oh, oh

What is it that I have
That makes me feel your pain
Like milking a stone
To get you to say it

Who is open
And who has shut up
And if one feels closed
How does one stay open

We have emotional needs, oh needs, oh needs
I wish to synchronize our feelings, our feelings
Oh show some emotional respect, oh respect

A juxtapositioning fate
Find our mutual coordinate

Lionsong

Maybe he will come out of this
Maybe he won't
Somehow I'm not too bothered
Either way

Maybe he will come out of this loving me
Maybe he will come out of this
I smell declarations of solitude
Maybe he will come out of this

Vietnam vet comes after the war
Lands in my house
This wild lion doesn't fit in this chair

Maybe he will come out of this loving me
Maybe he won't
I'm not taming no animal
Maybe he will come out of this

Once it was simple
One feeling at a time
It reached its peak then transformed
These abstract complex feelings
I just don't know
How to handle them
Should I throw oil
On one of his moods
But which one
Make the joy peak
Humour peak
Frustration peak
Anything peak
For clarity

Maybe he will come out of this loving me
Maybe he won't
I'm not taming no animal
Maybe he will come out of this

Maybe he will come out of this
Maybe he won't
Somehow I'm not too bothered
Either way
Somehow I'm not too bothered
Either way

I refuse it's a sign of maturity
To be stuck in complexity

I demand clarity
Either way

Maybe he will come out of this

Somehow I'm not too bothered
Or he will feel solitaire
Somehow im not too bothered
Id just like to know

History Of Touches

I wake you up
In the middle of the night
To express my love for you
Stroke your skin and feel you
Naked I can feel all of you
At same moment

I wake you up
In the night feeling
This is our last time together
Therefore sensing all the moments
We've been together
Being here at the same time
Every single touch
We ever touch each other
Every single fuck
We had together
Is in a wondrous time lapse
With us here at this moment
The history of touches
Every single archive
Compressed into a second
All with us here as wake you up

Black Lake

Our love was my womb
But our bond has broken
My shield is gone
My protection is taken
I am one wound
My pulsating body
Suffering being

My heart is enormous lake
Black with potion
I am blind
Drowning in this ocean

My soul torn apart
My spirit is broken
Into the fabric of all
He is woven

You fear my limitless emotions
I am bored of your apocalyptic obsessions
Did I love you too much
Devotion bent me broken
So I rebelled
Destroyed the icon

I did it for love
I honoured my feelings
You betrayed your own heart
Corrupted that organ

Family was always our sacred mutual mission
Which you abandoned

You have nothing to give
Your heart is hollow
I'm drowned in sorrows
No hope in sight of ever recover
Eternal pain and horrors

I am a glowing shiny rocket
Returning home
As I enter the atmosphere
I burn off layer by layer

Family

Is there a place
Where I can pay respects
For the death of my family
Show some respect
Between the three of us
There is the mother and the child
Then there is the father and the child
But no man and a woman
No triangle of love

So where do I go
To make an offering
I fall on my knees
Lay my flowers
Burn incense
Light the candles

So where do I go
To make an offering
To mourn our miraculous
Triangle
Father, mother, child
Father, mother, child

How will I sing us
Out of this sorrow
Build a safe bridge
For the child
Out of this danger
Danger

I raise a monument of love
There is a swarm of sound
Around our heads
And we can hear it
And we can get healed by it
It will relieve us from the pain
It will make us a part of
This universe of solutions
This place of solutions
This location of solutions

God save my daughter
God save our daughter
God save our daughter...

Notget

Once you fell out of love
Our love couldn't carry you
And I didn't even notice
For our love
Kept me save from death

You doubted the light
And the shelter it can give
For in love we are immortal
Eternal and safe from death

If I regret us
I'm denying my soul to grow
Don't remove my pain
It is my chance to heal

We carry the same wound
But have different cures
Similar injuries
But opposite remedies

After our love ended
Your arms don't carry me
Without love I feel the abyss
Understand your fear of death

I will not forget
This not get
Will you not regret
Having love let go

After our love ended
Your spirit entered me
Now we are the guardians
We keep her safe from death

Love will keep us safe from death
Love will keep us safe from death
Love will keep us safe from death
Love will keep us safe from death

Atom Dance

(featuring Antony Hegarty)

We are each others hemispheres

I am fine tuning my soul
To the universal wavelength
No one is a lover alone
I propose an atom dance

Our hearts are coral reefs in low tide
Love is the ocean we crave
Restlessly turning around and around
I am dancing towards transformation

Learning by love to open it up
Let this ugly wound breathe
We fear unconditional heart space
Healed by atom dance

When you feel the flow as primal love
Enter the pain and dance with me
We are each others hemispheres

We aim at peeling off
Dead layers of loveless love
No one is a lover alone
Most hearts fear their own home
Becoming themselves fully
It scares them off

When you feel the flow as primal love
Enter the pain and dance with me

[Antony Hegarty]
No one is a lover alone
Most hearts fear their own home
You are my second hemisphere, hemisphere
The atoms are dancing, dancing

No one is a lover alone, alone
Most hearts fear their own home
You are my second hemisphere, hemisphere
The atoms are dancing, dancing

Atoms are laughing at last
Atoms are laughing at last
At last, at last
Atoms are

No one is a lover alone

[Antony Hegarty]
No one is a lover alone
Most hearts fear their own home
You are my second hemisphere, hemisphere
The atoms are dancing, dancing

Mouth Mantra

My throat was stuffed
My mouth was sewn up
Banned from making noise
I was not heard

All calmly

Remove this hindrance
My throat feels stuck
I was not allowed
I was not heard

I was not heard
I was not heard
I was not heard

There is vocal sadness
I was separated
From what I can do
What I'm capable of

Need to break up
Vicious habits
Do something
I haven't done before

In vow of silence
Explore the negative space
Around my mouth
It implodes
Black hole
With jaw fallen in
In fallen jaw
Jaw fallen in
I am not hurt

This tunnel has enabled
Thousands of sounds
I thank this trunk
Noise pipe

I have followed a path
That took sacrifices
Now I sacrifice this scar
Can you cut it off

Quicksand

Define her abyss
Show it respect
Then a celestial nest
Will grow above

When I'm broken I am whole
And when I'm whole I'm broken

Our mother's philosophy
It feels like quicksand
And if she sinks
I'm going down with her

Locate her black lake
The steam from this pit
Will form a cloud
For her to live on

When she's broken she is whole
And when she's whole she's broken

Our mother's philosophy
It feels like quicksand
And if she sinks
I'm going down with her

Hackle this darkness
Up to the light
Where choreographed oxygen
Embroiders the air

When we're broken we are whole
And when we're whole we're broken

We are the siblings of the sun
Let's step into this beam
Every time you give up
You take away our future
And my continuity and my daughter
And her daughter
And her daughter
And her daughter

Utopia

Arisen My Senses

Just that kiss
Was all there is
Every cell in my body
Lined up to you
Legs a little open
Once again
Awaken my senses
Head topless
Arisen my senses

Just that kiss
Was all there is
My palms pulsating of
The things I want to do to you

Just that kiss
Is all there is
Weaving a mixtape
With every crossfade
Is WWW, for him a he
Weaving a mixtape with every song

Awaken my senses
Just that kiss was all there is
Just that kiss was all there is
Arisen my senses
Just that kiss was all there is
Arisen my senses

For him a he
Once again I'm made to merge
With him, for him a he
I'm made to merge
With him, for him a he
Am I keen, or keen, or not keen
For him a he

Too keen, too seen, to be seen
Am I keen, or keen, or not keen
Once again I'm made to merge
With him, by him, he sees me for who I

Am I keen, or keen, or not keen
To be seen or not seen
With him a he
Am I keen, or keen, or not keen
To be seen or not seen
With him a he
But he sees me for who I am

Blissing Me

All of my mouth was kissing him
Now, into the air, I am missing him
Is this excess texting a blessing
Or two music nerds obsessing

He reminds me of the love in me
I'm celebrating on a vibrancy
Sending each other MP3s
Falling in love to a song

This handsomest of wickermen
He asked if I could wait for him
Now, how many lightyears this interim
While falling in love with his songs

His hands are good in protecting me
Touching and caressing me
But would it be trespassing
Wanting him to be blissing me
Robbing him of his youth

Cliffhanger like suspension
My longing has formed its own skeleton
Bridging the gap between singletons
Sending each others these songs

The interior of these melodies
Is perhaps where we are meant to be
Our physical union a fantasy
I just fell in love with, with, with

So, I reserve my own intimacies
I bundle them up in packages
My rawward longing far too visceral
Did I just fall in love with love

The Gate

My healed chest wound
Transformed into a gate
Where I receive love from
Where I give love from

And I care for you, care for you
I care for you, care for you
Care for you, care for you
I care for you, care for you

Split into many parts
Splattered light beams into prisms
That will reunite

If you care for me, care for me
If you care for me, care for me
Care for me, care for me
And then I'll care for you, care for you
I care for you, care for you
I care for you, care for you
Care for you, care for you

Didn't used to be so needy
Just more broken than normal
Proud self-sufficiency
My silhouette is oval
It is a gate

I can care for you, care for you from
I can care for you, care for you
I care for you, care for you
I care for you, care for you
I care for you, care for you
You care for me, care for me
Care for you

Utopia

Bird species never seen or heard before
The first flute carved from the first fauna

Utopia
Its not elsewhere
Let's purify

You assigned me to protect our lantern
To be intentional about the light

Utopia
It isn't elsewhere
Its here

My instinct has been shouting at me for years
Saying "Lets get out of here"
Huge toxic tumor bulging underneath the ground here
Need to purify the air here
Purify, purify, purify toxicity

Body Memory

First snow of Winter
I'm walking hills and valleys
Adore this mystical fog
This fucking mist
These cliffs are just showing off

Then the body memory kicks in
I mime my home mountains
The moss that I'm made of
I redeem myself

I've been wrestling with my fate
Do I accept this ending
Will I accept my death
Or struggle claustrophobic
Fought like a wolverine
With my destiny
Refused to accept what was meant to be

Then the body memory kicks in
And I trust the unknown
Unfathomable imagination
Surrender to future

Oh, how to capture all this love
And find a pathway for it
Like threading an ocean through a needle
River through a keyhole
Can't fathom the grasp
I can't grasp the fathom

Then my body memory kicks in
My limbs and tongue take over
Like the ancestors before me
Show me the flow

My sexual DNA
X-rays of my kamasutras
Summons different bodies
Compares spines and buttocks
And back of necks

Then my body memory kicks in
It simply takes over
Beastiality
I redeem my body

I wasn't born urban
Toxic doesn't agree with me
Love lured me here
Into a stagnant state
My myths, my customs, ridiculed
Vacuum-packed molecules

Then my body memory kicks in
On this Brooklyn dance floor
Sweating with these rhythms
Rotate this matrix

All trapped in legal harness
Kafkaesque
Farce like patriarchy
Avoided to confront it

Then the body memory kicks in
My warrior awakens
My turn to defend
Urban didn't tame me

Then my body memory kicks in
All bosoms and embraces
Oral, anal entrances
Enjoy the satisfaction
Of the other is growing

Features Creatures

When I spot someone
Who is same height as you
And goes to same record stores
I literally think I am five minutes away from love

When I hear someone
With same accent as yours
Asking directions
With the same beard as yours
I literally think I am five minutes away from love

Isn't it odd
Isn't it peculiar
These statistics of my mind
Shuffling your features
Assembling a man
Googling love
Warming my heart on this log fire of love

Features creatures
Features creatures
Features creatures
Features creatures

Courtship

He turned me down
I then downturned another
Who then downturned her
The paralysing juice of rejection
His veins full of lead
He's left with loving what he lost
More than what he has

My snakeskin, cold in the dark
But warms up in the light
I then upturned a green-eyed giant
Who upturned and entered me
Will we stop seeing what unites us
But only what differs

The ghosts of old loves
Hovering around his orifices, his orifices

As you narrate your own heart tale
You thread souls into one beam
The love you gave and have been given
Weave into your own dream
I trust my cells to rearchive
My love historic stream

Losss

We all are struggling
Just doing our best
We've gone through the grinder
Suffered loss

Lost to
To which everything flows
An absence which
Attracts floral
Blooming softly

Soft is my chest
I didn't allow loss
Loss make me hate
Didn't harden from pain

This pain we had
Will always be there
But the sense of full satisfaction too

I opened my heart for you
Your lower lip, so heavy on you
My spine curved erotically
We're finally vulnerable

Loss of love, we all have suffered
How we make up for it defines who we, who we are
It defines us, how we overcome it
Recover, repair from loss

Loss of faith just ignites survivors
They stare doubt, straight into the eye
I forgive, the past is bondage
Freedom aphrodisiac

I opened my heart for you
Tied ribbons on my ankles for you
Drew orchids on my thighs for you
Your lower lip, so heavy on you
My spine curved erotically
Tied ribbons on my ankles for you

Drew orchids on my thighs for you
Your lower lip, so heavy on you
My spine curved erotically
Finally vulnerable

Sue Me

My tear duct clogged
My left eye broken
Medicate with warm compress
Extract hardened tears

Sue me, sue me, sue me all you want
I won't denounce her origin
Sue me, sue me, sue me all you want
I won't denounce our origin

I've ducked and dived
Like the mother in Solomon's Tale
To spare our girl
I won't let her get cut in half ever
But it's time to teach her some dignity

Sue me, sue me, sue me all you want
I won't denounce our origin
Sue me, sue me, sue me, sue me
I won't, I won't denounce our origin
No, I won't

He took it from his father
Who took it from his father
Who took it from his father
Let's break this curse
So it won't fall on our daughter
And her daughter
And her daughter
Won't let this sink into her DNA

Sue me, sue me, sue me, sue me all you want
I won't let you denounce our origin
Sue me, sue me, sue me all you want
Denounce our origin, no, I won't

Just can't take her suffer
So unfair
The sins of the fathers
They just fucked it all up
We had the best family
We had it all
We had it all in our hands
He pulled us through the wringler
Narcissistic

Tabula Rasa

We are all swollen
From hiding his affairs
Let's put it all on the table
Let it all out
It is time
He mustn't steal our light

Clean plate
Tabula rasa for my children
Clean plate
Not repeating the fuck-ups of the fathers

My deepest wish
Is that youre immersed in grace and dignity
But you will have to deal with shit soon enough
I hoped to give you the least amount of luggage
You got the right to make your own fresh mistakes
And not repeat others' failures

Clean plate
Tabula rasa for my children
Let's clean up
Break the chain of the fuck-ups of the fathers
It is time
For us women to rise and not just take it lying down
It is time
The world is listening

Oh, how I love you
Embarrassed to pass this mess over to you
But he led two lives
Thought ours was the only one

You are strong
You are strong
You are strong
You're so strong

Claimstaker

I walk through this land
Stake a claim
With my sense
With my bark
Mark my nest with song
Hear the echo from that cliff
I draw laser line through lake
To take a physicality

I inhale this physicality
This forest is in me
This forest is in me
I immerse me
This is my home
This is, this is my home

Saint

She always knows when people need stroking
And is attracted to deathbeds and divorcees
I dreamt she cared for my dying grandfather
Lying naked face down on his bed

She insists on total presence
And knows how to get through to the rest of us
She has entered me thousandfold often
And undone knots at my most awkward

Music loves too

She reaches out to orphans and refugees
Embraces them with thermal blankets
Her favourite childhood moments
Were at a hospital for the disabled

I've seen her offer empathy to widows
She attends funerals of strangers
Her strongest memory
Is feeding children with leprosy

Music heals too
I'm here to defend it

Future Forever

Imagine a future and be in it
Feel this incredible nurture, soak it in
Your past is on loop, turn it off
See this possible future and be in it

Hold fort for love, forever
We're just momentary vessels
We're just carrying

Trust your head around
Guide your stare elsewhere
Your love is already waiting
You're already in it

Hold fort for love, forever

Watch me form new nests
Weave a matriarchial dome
Build a musical scaffolding
Between sleep and awake
Day and night
Between night and day

You say I mirror peoples' missions at them
Now you mirror at me who I used to be
What I gave to the world
You've given back at me

Hold fort for love, forever

*** Thanx a lot to Anna & Hrafn for this one ***
Grandfather

( Translation )

Grandfather sometimes tells me
How terribly respected
Our family is

Freaked out scientists
Funny and all,
Now imagine it yourself

How it would suit me - I mean it
With a profound look on the face - gulping Malt

At Borgin he danced vikivaki
At Borgin he danced vikivaki

Grandmother sometimes tells me
How lovely the occupation had been

Heroic gentlemen
just everywhere
She is not lying to me

Says just as it is - about the descent
In the inspiration from that time - it's never cold

In the arena she danced vikivaki
In the arena she danced vikivaki

But grandfather just tells me
How terribly respected
Our family is

Freaked out scientists
Funny and all
Now imagine yourself

How it would suit me - I mean it
With a profound look on the face - gulping Malt

In the city center they dance vikivaki
In the city center they dance vikivaki

Anyone Who Had A Heart

(Cover live at Union Chapel 99 / Burt Bacharach / Hal David)

Anyone who ever loved - could look at me and know that I love you
Anyone who ever dreamed - could look at me and know I dream of you
Knowing I love you, so

Anyone who had a heart -would take me in his arms and love me too
You wouldn't really have a heart - and hurt me like you hurt me
And be so untrue - what am I to do?

Every time you go away - I always say this time it's goodbye dear
Loving you the way I do - I take you back
Without you I'd die dear - knowing I love you, so

Anyone who had a heart -would take me in his arms and love me too
You couldn't really have a heart - and hurt me like you hurt me
And be so untrue - what am I to do?

Knowing I love you, so - anyone who had a heart
Would take me in his arms and love me too
You couldn't really have a heart - and hurt me like you hurt me
And be so untrue
Anyone who had a heart 
Would take me in his arms and always love me
Why won't you?

Anyone who had a heart would simply take me
In his arms and always love me -why won't you?, yeah
Would take me in his arms and always love me
Why won't you?
Anyone who had a heart

Bedtime stories

(Written by Bjrk)

Today is the last day that I'm using words
They've gone out, lost their meaning
Don't function anymore

Let's, let's, let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious honey

Today is the last day that I'm using words
They've gone out, lost their meaning
Don't function anymore

Traveling, leaving logic and reason
Traveling, to the arms of unconsciousness
Traveling, leaving logic and reason
Traveling, to the arms of unconsciousness

Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious
Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious

Words are useless, especically sentences
They don't stand for anything
How could they explain how I feel

Traveling, traveling, I'm traveling
Traveling, traveling, leaving logic and reason
Traveling, traveling, I'm gonna relax
Traveling, traveling, in the arms of unconsciousness

And inside we're all still wet
Longing and yearning
How can I explain how I feel?

Let's get unconscious honey...

Traveling, traveling...
Traveling, traveling, in the arms of unconsciousness
And all that you've ever learned
Try to forget
I'll never explain again


Charlene

You've got yourself a-in a fine mess now, Charlene
You're either absolutely mad or you are joking, Charlene

Charlene, I'm crying
So close to you, darling
We're naked and laughing
You shine on my battery, Charlene

I have always adored your witty mouth, Charlene
Now would you please be very very rude to them, Charlene

Charlene I'm crying
So close to you darling
We're naked and laughing
You shine on my battery, Charlene

Let me get you out of that lake, Charlene
Your dress is red and oh so slippery, Charlene

I guess I have to dry you
Dress you and comb you
You're already late
I'll sort you out

Charlene, I'm crying
So close to you darling
We're naked and laughing
You shine on my battery, Charlene

Cry me a river

(Gling Glo Live)

Now you say you love me
You cried the whole night through
Well, you can cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you

Now you say you're sorry
For being so untrue
Well, you can cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you

You drove me, nearly drove me
Out of my head
When you never shed a tear

Remember, I remember
All that you said
Told me love was through for being
Told me you were through with me

But now you say you love me
And just to prove you do
Come on and - cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you

Yeah, ooh-ooh-woo

You drove me, nearly drove me
Out of my head
When you never shed a tear

Remember, I remember
All that you said
Told me love was through for being
Told me you were through with me

But now you say you love me
And just to prove you do
Come on and - cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you
I cried a river over you
I cried a river over you-hoo-oh!

Desired constellation

It's tricky when you feel
That someone has done something
On your behalf

It's slippery when
Your sense of justice
Murmurs underneath

And it's asking
How am i going to make it right?
How am i going to make it right?

With a palmful of stars
I throw them like dice
Repeatedly
Repeatedly
On the table

I throw them on the table
Until the desired constellation appears

How am i going to make it right?
How am i going to make it right?
How am i going to make it right?
How am i going to make it right?

And you're asking you
How am i going to make it right?
How am i going to make it right?
(icelandic / gibberish[?] Stuff )

Repeatedly
Repeatedly
You're asking yourself
Repeatedly

*** Thanx a lot to Nix & Anne-Mette for this one ***

Domestica

Oh boy
Where have i put my keys
I've looked in my pocket
Behind the newspaper
And underneath the remote control
And i cannot find where i put it again

Oh boy i cannot find my keys
I'm far too late
The door is open now
A taxi is waiting there
Ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah

A phone keeps ringing
I am definitely not going to
Pick it up
'Cause
When I grow up
I'm gonna get those fancy key-rings
That you whistle at
And they whistle right back
At you

Ah ah ah ah ah
Bah pah bah pah...

Downtown

( Live Union Chapel 99 - Tony Hatch / Petula Clark Cover ) 

When you're alone and life is making you lonely
You can always go - downtown
When you've got worries, all the noise and the hurry
Seems to help, I know - downtown
Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
How can you lose?

The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go downtown, things'll be great when you're
Downtown - no finer place, for sure
Downtown - everything's waiting for you

Don't hang around and let your problems surround you
There are movie shows - downtown
Maybe you know some little places to go to
Where they never close - downtown
Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle bossa nova
You'll be dancing with him too before the night is over
Happy again

The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go downtown, where all the lights are bright
Downtown - waiting for you tonight
Downtown - you're gonna be all right now

And you may find somebody kind to help and understand you
Someone who is just like you and needs a gentle hand to
Guide them along

So maybe I'll see you there
We can forget all our troubles, forget all our cares
So go downtown, things'll be great when you're
Downtown - don't wait a minute for
Downtown - everything's waiting for you

Gloomy Sunday

Sunday is gloomy
The hours are slumberless
Dearest the shadows
I live with are numberless

Little white flowers
Will never awaken you
Not where the dark coach
Of sorrow has taken you

Angels have no thought
Of ever returning you
Would they be angry
If I thought of joining you?

Gloomy Sunday

Gloomy is Sunday
With shadows I spend it all
My heart and I
Have decided to end it all

Soon there'll be prayers
And candles are lit I know
Let them not weep
Let them know that I'm glad to go

Death is no dream
For in death I'm caressing you
With the last breath of my soul
I'll be blessing you

Gloomy Sunday

Dreaming, I was only dreaming
I wake and I find you asleep
In the deep of my heart here

Darling I hope
That my dream hasn't haunted you
My heart is telling you
How much I wanted you

Gloomy Sunday
is absolutely Gloomy Sunday
Gloomy Sunday
...Sunday

I fall in love too easily

(Gling Glo Live)

I fall in love too easily
I fall in love too fast
I fall in love too terribly hard
For love to ever last

My heart should be well schooled
'Cause I've been fooled
In the past

But still I fall in love too easily
I fall in love too fast

I fall in love too easily
I fall in love too fast
I fall in love too terribly hard
For love to ever last

My heart should be well schooled
'Cause I've been fooled
In the past

But still I fall in love too easily
I fall in love too fast
I fall in love too fast

I go humble

I go humble
You're so curiously pure
Only before you I'm humble

I go humble
You amaze me
Only before you I'm humble

I should be arrested
For my emotional stunts
Only before you I'm humble

I'm queen of provocation
I wake people up
Only before you I'm humble

I go humble
I adore you
Only before you I'm humble

I should be arrested
For my emotional stunts
Only before you I'm humble

I love to love

( 1977 Radio show / Tina Charles Cover )

Oh, I love to love
But my baby just loves to dance
He wants to dance
He loves to dance
He got to dance

Oh, I love to love
But my baby just loves to dance

Oh, I love to love
But there's no time for a romance
No, no ,no

Oh, I love to love
But my baby just loves to dance

The minute
The band begins to swing it
He's on his feet to shake it
And dance the night away

Stop!
I'm spinning like a top
We dance until we drop
But if i have my way

Oh, I love to love
But my baby just loves to dance
He wants to dance
He loves to dance
He got to dance

Oh, I love to love
But my baby just loves to dance

Oh, I love to love
But he won't give our love a chance
No,no ,no

Oh, I love to love
But my baby just loves to dance

Stop!
I'm spinning like a top
We dance until we stop
But if i have my way

Stop, Stop!
Instead of going down, down
We better go home and get down
But what im trying to say

I love to love
But my baby just loves to dance
Yeah yeah

I love to love
But my baby just loves to dance
Yeah yeah

I love to love
But my baby just loves to dance
Yes he does

I remember you

I remember you
You're the one that made my dreams come true
A few kisses ago

I remember you
You're the one that said "I love you too,
Didn't you know?"

I remember too
A distant bell
And stars that fell
Like rain out of the blue

When my life is through
And the angels ask me to recall
The thrill of them all

I shall tell them
I remember you

I remember you
You're the one that made my dreams come true
A few kisses ago

I remember you
You're the one that said "I love you too,
Didn't you know?"

I remember too
A distant bell
And stars that fell
Like rain out of the blue

When my life is through
And the angels ask me to recall
The thrill of them all

I shall tell them I remember you.
Oh, you.., Oh, you.., You..

I've Seen It All

(Live version)

I've seen it all, I have seen the willow trees
I've seen a land on the first day of peace
I have seen a friend killed by his best friend
And lives that were over before they were spent

I have seen what I was and I know what I'll be
I've seen it all, there is no more to see

You haven't seen elephants, kings or Peru
I'm happy to say I had better to do
What about China? Have you seen the Great Wall?
All walls are great if the roof doesn't fall

And the man you will marry
The home you will share
Oh no I am kidding
I really don't care

[Leave it up to me; gibberish ?]

You've never been to Niagara Falls
I have seen water, it's water, that's all
The Eiffel Tower, the Empire State
My pulse was as high on my very first date

And your grandson's hands as he plays with your hair
Oh no really, I don't care

[just another night and they go (?; gibberish) through the dark]

I have seen it all, I have seen the dark
I have seen the brightness in one little spark
I have seen what I chose and I've seen what I need
And that is enough, to want more would be greed

I have seen what I was, and I know what I'll be
I've seen it all, there is no more to see

You've seen it all, and all that you've seen
is totally your view on your own little screen
the light and the dark, the big and the small
just keep in mind that you grow more than tall

You've seen what you were, I know what you'll be
I've seen it all, you don't need to see

The Christmas Cat

( Translation )


You know the christmas cat
- that cat is very large
We dont know where he came from
Nor where he has gone

He opened his eyes widely
Glowing both of them
It was not for cowards
To look into them

His hair sharp as needles
His back was high and bulgy
And claws on his hairy paw
Were not a pretty sight

Therefore the women competed
To rock and sow and spin
And knitted colorful clothes
Or one little sock

For the cat could not come
And get the little children
They had to get new clothes
From the grownups

When christmas eve was lighted
And the cat looked inside
The children stood straight and red-cheeked
With their presents

He waved his strong tail
He jumped, scratched and blew
And was either in the valley
Or out on the headland

He walked about, hungry and mean
In hurtfully cold christmas snow
And kindled the hearts with fear
In every town

If outside one heard a weak "meaow"
Then unluck was sure to happen
All knew he hunted men
And didnt want mice

He followed the poorer people
Who didnt get any new clothing
Near christmas - and tried and lived
In poorest conditions

From them he took at the same time
All their christmas food
And ate them also themselves
If he could

Therefore the women competed
To rock and sow and spin
And knitted colorful clothes
Or one little sock

Some had gotten an apron
And some had got a new shoe
Or anything that was needful
But that was enough

For pussy should not eat no-one
Who got some new piece of clothes
She hissed with her ugly voice
And ran away

If she still exists I dont know
But for nothing would be his trip
If everybody would get next christmas
Some new rag

You may want to keep it in mind
To help if there is need
For somewhere there might be children
Who get nothing at all

Mayhaps that looking for those who suffer
From lack of plentiful lights
Will give you a happy season
And merry christmas

They are practising breathing into the heart
Nonsense and nonsense

Love everyone and "I love you"
And everyone here
Everyone here loves you

Love everyone and "I love you"
And everyone here
Everyone here loves you

You have to remember to calculate
And dont you understand the future
And don't trust nuns

And the sun doesn't sink today
And never never never never

Love everyone and "I love you"
And I never
And I never love you

O ho!
The devil stands and doesn't know how to smoke
And when the huge motherfucker starts moving
Try to open up
They practice breathing into the heart
And the devil knows

Love everyone and "I love you"
And I never
And I never love you
All that you see

Don't listen' I said
And 'don't listen' I said

Lilith

You can have me
but I'll defend my child
by spring the child will die

Moon

I'm just so warm, Jennifer
and I'm coming over
to sa-bo-tage our distance

Moon will lead me on
Moon will guide me through, baby
Moon will guide me through
Moon will turn me on

I just don't care anymore
'cause my court is calling
it's me and truth
it is home
I'm at home with thruth alone

Moon will lead me on
Moon will guide us through
Moon will guide us through, baby
Moon will turn me on

The moon
it guides me on baby
there's absolutely no doubt

Me and truth
it is home
I'm at home with truth alone

Min farfar drikker sødmælk

( Danish Children Song - Grammy 1998 )

Min farfar drikker sødmælk
( My granddad drinks high-fat milk )
Ja, sødmælk drikker han
( Yes, high-fat milk he drinks )
Og drikker han ikke sødmælk
( And when he's not drinking high-fat milk )
Så spiser han ærter og flæsk
( He's eating peas and pork )

Misty

(Gling Glo Live)

Look at me...
I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree
And I feel i'm clinging to a cloud
I can't understand,
I get misty just holding your hand

Walk my way...
And a thousand violins begin to play
It could be the sound of your hello
That music I hear,
I get misty the moment you're near

Can't you see that you're leading me on
And it's just what I want you to do
Don't you notice how hopelessly I'm lost
Thats why im following you
Hoh-wohow!

On my own...
When I wander through this wonderland alone
Never knowing my right foot from my left
My hand from my glove
I'm too misty and too much in love
Yeah, wooh!

Can't you see that you're leading me on
And it's just, just what I want you to do, oh!
Don't you notice how hopelessly I'm lost
That's why I'm following you
huh, yeahoh!

On my own...
When I wander through this wonderland alone
Never knowing my left foot from my right
My hand from my glove
I'm too misty, I'm too much in love
Wooh!

I'm too misty!
Too, I'm too much in love, hoh-hoh-hoh hoh-hoh!

Mouth's cradle

Live in Seattle

There is yet another one,
That spits always,
With me and smiles,

Always Loves Me,
Always loves me,
Always loves me,

And I'll take this step,
Into his mouths cradle,
I'm gonna follow his teeth,
Step by step,
Walk up his teeth,
Into a mouth's cradle,
Mouths cradle,

There is yet another one,
There is yet another one,

There is yet another one,
There is yet another one,

That nurtures me
And always loves me

Tooth by tooth up this ladder

Into mouth's cradle

My Favourite Things

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with string
These are a few of my favourite things

Cream coloured ponies and crisp apple strudels
Doorbells and sleighbells and shnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings

These are a few of my favourite things

When the bee stings
When the dog bites
When I'm feeling bad
I simply remember my favourite things
And then I don't feel so sad

My Snare ( A.k.a : Nature is ancient )

It's wet in the middle
With a shell around it
It's called life

It goes wherever it wants to
Don't try to predict it
Then you'd offend it
It's meant to surprise

Nature is ancient
But surprises us all
Nature is ancient
But surprises us all

Rescue me
From level-head-ness
And the unnecessary luxury of being calm

Nature is ancient
But surprises us all

Blonde on her arms
She sneaks up from behind

Next To Last Song

( Dancer in the dark )

Dear gene,
Of course you are here
And now there's nothing to fear

Oooh, i should have known
Oooh, i was never alone

This isn't the last song
There's no violin
The choir is so quiet
And no-one takes a spin
This is the next to last song
And that's all
All

Remember what i have said
Remember, wrap up the bread
Do this, do that, make your bed

This isn't the last song
There's no violin
The choir is quiet
And noone takes a spin
This is the next to last song
And that's all

Nu Flyver Anton

Nu flyver Anton
Helt af sig selv
Hvad tror du Anton?
Bliver drømmene til virkelighed?
Han flyver gennem himlen
Og himlen hænger
Som en krave
Om hans hals

Det er så sort og meget mørkt
Imellem sol og måne

Nu flyver Anton...

Så pisser han på mørket
Og mørkret
Bliver til lys

Nu flyver Anton...

Så fik han sit første kys
Sit første kys!
Med tungen!
Tungen ... gik som..
En pro-pel-ler, woah!

Oooh, nu flyver Anton...

*** Thanx a lot to Lina & Louise for this one ***

Now Flies Anton

Now flies Anton
All by himself
What do you think Anton?
Will the dreams become reality?
He flies through the heaven
And the heaven hangs
Like a collar
Around his neck

It is so black and very dark
Between the sun and moon

Now flies Anton...

So he pisses on the darkness
And the darkness
Turns to light

Now flies Anton...

So he got his first kiss
His first kiss!
With the tongue!
The tongue...went like...
A pro-pel-ler, woah!

Oooh, now flies Anton..

Oceania

( "Who Is It" Single / Featuring Kelis)

[Kelis]
I am the continent
Working with the moon
No one even knows me
But I'm always cold and blue

I revolve around the earth
There are worlds of things within me
My belly is always full
Freedom glides on surface

Yes my heart is deep within
Nations dive and trust me
I lay them at my shores
They dance with me in time

[Bjork]
You show me continents
I see the islands
You count the centuries
I blink my eyes

[Bjork]
Hawks and sparrows
[Kelis]
There's no one I can't reach
[Bjork]
Race in my waters
[Kelis]
Only I reflect the sky
[Bjork]
Stingrays are floating
[Kelis]
My power yes, is infinite
[Bjork]
Across the sky
[Kelis]
I do this all for you

[Bjork]
Little ones
[Kelis]
I do this all for you
[Bjork]
My sons and my daughters
[Kelis]
I do this all for you

Ooops

( 808 State )

Ooops - alright
I'll come over
And pour myself over you
Jars of fun!
Exciting stories
I'll make you forget

Tickle you a little bit
Seduce out your good temper
I'll shine all over
I'll cook my best dish for you

But then it's my turn
I want all your adoration

Dog, I own you
Sit down fool
You own me
I'm yours
I'm the sun
I'll shine all over you
Grab the rays
Sugar

Ooops...alright
I'll come over
And pour myself over you
Jars of fun!
Exciting stories
I'll make you forget
I'll make you for-get

It's in our Hands

Look no further
Look no further
Look no further

Cruelest almost
Always to ourselves
It mustn't get any better off

It's in our hands
It always was
It's in our hands
In our hands
It's all there
In our hands
It's all there
In our hands

Well, now aren't we scaring ourselves
Unnecessarily
Aren't we trying too hard

'Cause it's in our hands
It's in our hands
It's all there
It's in our hands

Look no further
Look no further
It's in our hands
It always was
It's in our hands
It's in our hands
It's in our hands
It's in our hands

Other side of the sun

( cover of a Janis Ian song, performed by Bjrk in the band Jam80, in 1980 )

Leaving on a boat for beyond the other side of the ocean
Bet you in the morning you won't even know I'm gone
Tired of living here in the middle of mixed emotion
Might as well be living on the other side of the sun

Leaving with the feeling I don't know how I'm dealing with loving you
Though once I knew
The special way
And what to do
To make you stay
Forever and ever

Even as I'm leaving i'll never stop believing you are the one
Who can make me laugh
And can bring me back
From beyond the other side of the sun

Rolling down the river I hope I can deliver the morning
Wishing on a star for the sun to come out to play
Funny, when it's over you really don't remember the warning
Might as well be living out beyond the Milky Way

Le petit chevalier

( Live Paris 98 )

Je suis le petit chevalier
Avec le ciel dessus mes yeux
Je ne peux pas me effrayer

Je suis le petit chevalier
Avec la terre dessous mes pieds
J'irai te visiter
J'irai te visiter

I am the little knight
with the sky up above my eyes
I cannot be scared

I am the little knight
With the earth down below my feet
I shall visit you
I shall visit you

And I'm tryin' to make some dough, tell me
Baby, better come back, maybe next week
'Cause you see I'm on a losing streak
I can't get no
Oh, no, no, no

Scary

He means tomorrow but says: "In a bit"
And doesn't show up at all
He sets his watch to a comet's orbit
Remembers to forget to call

No courage for love
Too scared to be happy
No courage for love
Too scared to be happy

I do.... do
I do.... do

"Your place or mine" means "heaven or hell"
Two addresses somewhat apart
His home's dark and spiky, her's clear as a bell
It's over before they can start

No courage for love
Too scared to be happy
No courage for love
Too scared to be happy

I do.... don't
I do.... don't

And tomorrow passed them by X4

La, la, la, la, la ....

Short term affair

( Duo : Bjrk/Tony Ferrino / Live BBC's Comic relief )

Tony Ferrino :
It's a short time affair
You're my children's au-pair
But I just couldn't bear

Tony Ferrino & Bjrk :
To keep my hands off you

Bjrk :
I was barely eighteen
What you did was obscene
But to me it felt clean

Tony Ferrino & Bjrk :
What else was I to do?

Tony Ferrino :
The memory still lingers
You're cooking the kids fish-fingers
And ironing


Bjrk :
Each morning you'd come down
In your paisley dressing gown
Then you sing
And the yearning started for a short-time affair


Tony Ferrino :
No intention to stray

Bjrk :
I was caught in your snare

Tony Ferrino :
But my wife was awake

Bjrk :
It was so debonaire

Tony Ferrino :
So I thought what the heck

Tony Ferrino & Bjrk :
I knew I couldn't resist

Tony Ferrino :
It was a short time affait

Bjrk :
You're the man you're the boss

Tony Ferrino :
When I find you right there

Bjrk :
Like the father I lost

Tony Ferrino :
Clean our silver-ware

Bjrk :
So to hell with the cost

Tony Ferrino & Bjrk :
Right then at once we kissed

Bjrk :
You took me to the kitchen, you're hands kinda started twitchin', felt so shy

Tony Ferrino :
Nothing could stop what followed, lucky for me you swallowed

Bjrk :
I know it's all over now

Tony Ferrino :
Try to be strong somehow

Bjrk :
I start a brand new life

Tony Ferrino :
Please, please don't tell my wife

Bjrk :
I won't stop loving you

Tony Ferrino :
Please, please don't tell my wife

Bjrk :
Au revoir, ciao, auf wiedersehen

Tony Ferrino :
We must never meet again

Bjrk :
Short time affair, heeeeeee aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa ooooooooooooooo

Tony Ferrino :
Short time affair , eeeeee oooooooooooo

One will eventually
Elevate above all struggles
Above daily nuisance
With the sensational nuance

When

If one steadfastly attends
And respects all community
Consistantly care
And insists on warmth at all times

One will eventually

The Boho Dance

( A Tribute to Joni Mitchell )

Down in the cellar in the Boho zone
I went looking for some sweet inspiration, oh well
Just another hard-time band
With Negro affectations

I was a hopeful in rooms like this
When I was working cheap
It's an old romance, a Boho dance
It hasn't gone to sleep

Even on the scuffle
The cleaner's crease was in my jeans
And any eye for detail
Caught a little lace along the seams

And you were in the parking lot
Subterranean by your own design
The virtue of your style inscribed
On your contempt for mine

Jesus was a beggar, he was rich in grace
And Solomon kept his head in all his glory
It's just that some steps outside the Boho dance
They have a fascination for me

A camera pans the cocktail hour
Behind a blind of potted palms
And finds a lady in a Paris dress
With runs in her nylons

You read those books where luxury
Comes as a guest to take a slave
Books where artists in noble poverty
Go like virgins to the grave

Don't you get sensitive on me
'Cause I know you're just too proud
You couldn't step outside the Boho dance
Even if good fortune allowed

Like a priest with a pornographic watch
Looking and longing on the sly
Sure it's stricken from your uniform
But you can't get it out of your eyes

Nothing is capsulized in me
On either side of town
The streets were never really mine
Not mine these glamour gowns

The Comet Song

( Biophilia Japanese Edition )

With our fingers we make million holes
We run and we fall into pot holes
On a mission to savor the world, oh
We peek at the sky through tree holes

Comet, oh damn it
The comet comes hurtling down
On a precious plot of earth

Like the bugs in mothers flower bed
We walk on long legs over the sea bed
On our mission to save the world, oh
We need milk and cakes and a warm bed

Comet, oh damn it
The comet comes hurtling down
On a precious plot of earth

Grey leaves are too much
For any mother to handle

A father must pull
his black hat down over the eyes

Travessia

Quando voc foi embora
Fez-se noite em meu viver
Forte eu sou mas no tem jeito
Hoje eu tenho que chorar
Minha casa no minha
E nem meu este lugar
Estou s e no resisto
Muito tenho pr falar

Solto a voz nas estradas
J no quero parar
Meu caminho de pedras
Como posso sonhar
Sonho feito de brisa
Vento vem terminar
Vou fechar o meu pranto
Vou querer me matar

Vou seguindo pela vida
Me esquecendo de voc
Eu no quero mais a morte
Tenho muito que viver
Vou querer amar de novo
E se no der no vou sofrer
J no sonho
hoje fao com meu brao o meu viver

*** Thanx a lot to Lili & Nota for this one ***

Crossing

When you were gone
There was nigth in my life
I'm strong but there's no way
Today I have to cry
My house is not mine
 And even mine is this place
I'm alone and don't resist
Much I have to tell

(I let go my voice on the roads
Now I don't want to stop
(My route is made of stone
How can I dream
Dream made of breeze
Wind come finish
I'll close my weeping
I'll want to kill myself

I'll following by the life
Forgeting about you
I don't want death anymore
I have lot to live
I'll want to love again
And if doesn't work I'll not be hurt
I don't dream
Today I make with my arms my subsist

*** Thanx a lot to Nota for this one ***

Verandi

Hafandi eyrað vasanum
Hafandi augun sknum
starbrf maganum
Vnd af kossum munninum

Kyrr!

Hafandi haf af girnd
Hafandi loðna lngun um mjaðmirnar
Hafandi sjn sem að sr þegar það er slkkt
Og gott bil milli ftanna

Kyrr!
 
*** Thanx to Paulie, Didda, Egill & Lina who did that for us ***
The state of being

Having the ear in the pocket
Having the eye in the shoe
Loveletters in the stomach
Bouquet of kisses in the mouth

Calm down!

Having an ocean of desire
Having a hairy desire around the hips
Having eyes that can see in the dark
And too much space between the legs

Calm down!

*** Thanx to Paulie, Didda, Egill & Lina who did that for us ***

Songs of rose from Watersend

My eyes and your eyes
Oh those beautiful stones
Mine was yours and yours was mine
You know what I mean
Long is since I saw him
Truly fair he was
All that may adorn a man
Most of the people carried him
You I long for most of all
Heavy with the flood of tears
Oh that I never had seen you
Dear beloved friend

*** Thanx a lot to Lina for this one ***

Where is the line

( Live on tour 2003 )

Where is the line with you?

My purse wide open
You ask again
I see you trying to
Cash into accounts
Everywhere

Where is the line with you?

I want to be flexible
I want
To go out
Of my way for you
But enough is enough

Where is the line with you?

I want to be elastic
I want to go out of my way for you
I want to help you

Where is the line with you?

*** Thanx a lot to Benjamin for this one ***

Who Do You Think You Are?

( Elvis Costello / Live Union Chapel 99 ) 

The hunted look, the haunted grace
The empty laugh that you cultivate
You fall into that false embrace
And kiss the air about her face

Who do you think you are?

The tres bon mots you almost quote from your
Quiver of literary darts
A thousand or so tuneless violins
Thrilling your cheap little heart

Who do you think you are?

My cigarette burns right down to the ash
My coffee cup is unstained
The waiter hovers close at hand
His courtesy strained

Who do you think you are?
I close with my regards
Well I'm the red-face gentleman
Caught in this picture postcard

Who do you think you are?

Trying my best to make the best of your absence
Though the joke gets tired and sordid
Sea-shell hearts get trampled under foot
Punchlines unrewarded

But even at this distance
It's not easy to accept
The vision that I chase returns
When I least expect it
I've fallen from your tired embrace
I kiss the air
Around the place
That should be
Your face

Why ?

( Elvis Costello - live with The Brodski Quartet )

Why is Daddy not here?
Are you crying?
Why?
Does he still love me?
Will you take care of me?
If you both love me so
Why don't you love each other
Mummy's gone missing
And Daddy's on fire
Daddy's on fire
Daddy's on fire

*** Thanx a lot to Penelope for this one ***

Yoga

Tricky and Bjork:

Don't hold me
(I'm no mystic)
Don't fuck with me
(She treats my 'tistic')
Just do it
(A 'tastic')
Yoga-all,I leave it after you
(Now I'm feeling fantastic)
I'll find how to get after you
(And I will do for you)
I don't chance it
(And I will do for you)
All the pieces
I don't-yoga
All the people in colleauge with me

Don't hold me now
(I'm no mystic)
Don't fuck with me
(She treats my 'tistic')
I can want it
(A tastic')
I'll slide around in seconds
(Now I'm feeling fantastic)
I'll slide around and solve me
(And I will do for you)
I don't chance it
(And I will do for you)
I don't need the love to dance it
I don't chance it
I don't chance,at least the love's here

Just do it
(I'm no mystic)
Don't fuck with me
(She treats my 'tistic')
Don't hold me now
(A tastic')
I'm jumpy
(Now I'm feeling fantastic)
I'll stay and leave there
(And I will do for you)
May though you come and leave there
(And I will do for you)
I don't share it
Yoga after I go
and leave the lair
I'll send light-this sad soul laments
It can tell that I love,so I waste

*** Thanx a lot to Elliot for this one ***

You Only Live Twice

You only live twice or so it seems
One life for yourself and one for your dreams
You drift through the years and life seems tame
Till one dream appears and love is its name

And love is a stranger who'll beckon you on
Don't think of the danger or the stranger is gone
This dream is for you, so pay the price
Make one dream come true, you only live twice

And love is a stranger who'll beckon you on
Don't think of the danger or the stranger is gone
This dream is for you, so pay the price
Make one dream come true, you only live twice

Worlds Collapse

( Bless LP - 1990 / Backing vocals )

I meet you, and you tell me
What you dreamt - last night
I think its great - it's the same dream I dreamt
We fall flat - the same dream

Worlds collapse
Worlds collapse
Your wall falls on my wall
I think i'll go away
I think i'll go outside
I think of buying hope

Meet girl - dreamt a dream too
He dreamt another dream
He wont tell us her dream
But when I offer him my coat
He opens up a smile

He dreamt a house
In the house, a mere wall
In the middle of the rift there's:

World's collapse
World's collapse
Your wall falls on my wall
I think I go away
I think i'll form a bomb out of snow

I think i'll throw it at girl
I think i'll throw it at you
I think i'll throw it at girl
I think i'll throw it at you

Yonder

( Bless LP - 1990 / Backing vocals )

There's a useless moon up there in the sky
It has neither tail nor start
I hang around the caf disappointment
And you in the yonder

I know what a call grapes out from the tar
And think filt of names and air
I sip coffe ground on caf supernova
Get you in the yonder

When I nap
When I nap
Please stay away from my dreams
Please stay in the yonder - until I wake up

Inside you does a heart die, Jane
Pumps constantly pain and sorrow
I leave big tips at some sort of caf
And you in the yonder

When I nap
When I nap
Please stay away from my dreams
Please stay in the yonder - until I wake up

You don't know what love is

(Gling Glo Live)

You don't know what love is
Until you learned the meaning of the blues
Until you loved the love you've had to lose
You don't know what love is

You don't know how lips hurt
Until you've kissed and had to pay the cost
Until you've flipped your heart and you have lost
You dont know what love is

Do you know how a lost heart fears
The thought of suffering
And how lips that taste of tears
Lose their taste for kissing

You dont know how hearts burn
For love that cannot live yet never dies
Until you reached each dawn with sleepless nights
You don't know what love is

Do you know how a lost heart fears
The thought of suffering
And how lips that taste of tears
Lose their taste for kissing

You don't know what love is
Until you learned the meaning of the blues
Until you loved the love you had to lose
You don't know what love is

*** Thanx a lot to Lina & Andrew for this one ***
