I See Who You Are Lyrics - Bjork (feat. Min Xiao-Fen)

I see who you are
Behind the skin
And the muscles

I see who you are, now
And when you 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 corpes

Let's celebrate now all this flesh on our bones
Let me push you up against me tightly
And enjoy every bit of you

I see who you are

Earth Intruders Lyrics - Bjork

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
The beat of sharp shooters
Come straight 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 parachuters
Necessary voodoo

I have guided my bones through some voltage
And love them still
And love them too

Metallic! Carnage! Furiocity! Feel the speed!

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

There is turmoil out there
Carnage, rambling
What is to do but dig
Dig bones out of earth

Mud graves! Timber! Morbid trenches!

Here come the earth intruders
There'll be no resistance
We are the canoneerers
Necessary voodoo

And the beast
With many heads
And the arms rolling
Steamroller!

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

Forgive us, tribe

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

Wanderlust Lyrics - Bjork

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

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

Wanderlust! relentlessly craving
Wanderlust! peel off the layers
Until we 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
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 we 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'm joined with you

Wanderlust!

Can you spot a pattern?

(relentlessly restless)

Dull Flame Of Desire Lyrics - Bjork (feat. Antony Hegarty)

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

Innocence Lyrics - Bjork

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
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 that you can do
Anything!

Should I
Save myself
For later
Or generously give?

Fear of
Losing
Energy
Is draining

It locks up your chest
Shuts down the heart
Miserly
And 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

Vertebrae By Vertebrae Lyrics - Bjork

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 four 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 me
Let it burst like old train sounds
Make them leave me nature

Vertebrae by vertebrae by vertebrae

My arms squeeze out of my shoulders!

And the arms squeeze out of my shoulders
I curl my tail in words
I set my clock on the moon
Vertebrae by vertebrae

[x3] Please release this pressure of me

Let off some steam

Pneumonia Lyrics - Bjork

Get over that sorrow, girl
The world is always going to be made of this

You can trust in it
Unless you breathe in
Bravely

I adore how you simply surrender to high

And your lungs
They're mourning
Teepee-style

All the still-born love that could've 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
You're just crying after all
To not want them humans around
Anymore

Get over that sorrow, girl

Hope Lyrics - Bjork

[x3] Here's my version of it, eternal whirlwind

What's the lesser of two evils:
If a suicide bomber
Made to look pregnant
Manages to kill her target
Or not?

What's the lesser of two evils?

What's the lesser of two evils:
If she kills them
Or dies in vain?

Nature has fixed no limits on our hopes

What's the lesser of two evils?

What's the lesser of two evils:
If the bomb was fake
Or if it was real?

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

Well I don't care
Love is all
I dare to drown
To be proven wrong

Declare Independence Lyrics - Bjork

Declare independence!
Don't let them do that to you!
Declare independence!
Don't let them do that to you!

Declare independence!
Don't let them do that to you!
Declare independence!
Don't let them do that to you!

Start your own currency!
Make your own stamp
Protect your language

Declare independence
Don't let them do that to you
Declare independence
Don't let them do that to you

[x4] Make your own flag!

[x6] Raise your flag!

Declare independence!
Don't let them do that to you!
Declare independence!
Don't let them do that to you!

Damn colonists
Ignore their patronizing
Tear off their blindfolds
Open their eyes

Declare independence!
Don't let them do that to you!
Declare independence!
Don't let them do that to you!

With a flag and a trumpet
Go to the top of your highest mountain!

[x6] Raise your flag!

Declare independence!
Don't let them do that to you!
Declare independence!
Don't let them do that to you!

Raise the flag!

My Juvenile Lyrics - Bjork (feat. Antony Hegarty)

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

[x3] My juvenile
I truly say
You are my biggest love

I clumsily try to free you from me
One last embrace
To tie a sacred ribbon

[x3] This is an offer to better the last let-go

The intentions were pure

My juvenile

"Medúlla" (2004)

Pleasure Is All Mine Lyrics - Bjork

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 defend me
We float

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 Lyrics - Bjork

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 stars forgiveness
The girl might live

Where Is The Line? Lyrics - Bjork

Where is the line with you?
Where is the line with you?
Where is the line with you?
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?
Where is the line with you?
Where is the line with you?
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?
Where is the line with you?
Where is the line with you?
Where is the line with you?

I am elastic
I want to go out of my way for you
I want to help you

Where is the line with you?
Where is the line with you?
Where is the line with you?
Where is the line with you?

I want to have capacity for you
And be elastic, elastic, to be elastic for you
Where is the line with you ?

I'm elastic for you
But enough is enough

Where is the line with you?
Where is the line with you?
Where is the line with you?
Where is the line with you?

Vökuró Lyrics - Bjork

Bærinn minn, bæerinn minn og inn
Sefur sæll í kyrr
Fellur mjöll hljótt í húmi á jör
Grasi mitt, grasi mitt og itt geymir mold til vors
Hjúfrar lind, leynt vi brekkurót
Vakir eins og vi
Lífi trútt, kyrrlátt kalda vermsl
Augum djúps útí himinfyrr starir stillt um nótt
Langt í burt vakir veröl stór
Grimmum töfrum tryllt
Eir arlaus óttast nótt og dag
Augu ín óttalaus og hrein brosa vi mér björt
Vonin mín, blessa brosi Þitt
Vekur ijó úr vær
Hvílist jör hljó í örmum snæs
Liljuhvít lokar augum blám litla stúlkan mín

Who Is It Lyrics - Bjork

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

Oceania Lyrics - Bjork

One breath away from mother Oceanðòa
Your nimble feet make prints in my sands
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 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

Submarine Lyrics - Bjork

When will it be time do 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!
Do it now!

Sonnets / Unrealities XI Lyrics - Bjork

It may not always be so
And I say that if your lips
Which I have loved
Should touch another's
And your dear strong fingers clutch his 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 helplessly 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 shall I turn my face
And hear one bird sing terribly afar in the lost lands

Desired Constellation Lyrics - Bjork

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?

With a palm full of stars
I throw them like dice
Repeatedly
I shake them like dice
And throw them on the table
Repeatedly
Repeatedly
Until the desired constellation appears
And I ask myself:

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?

Mouths Cradle Lyrics - Bjork

There is yet another one
That follows me
Where ever I go
And supports me
This tooth is warmth-like
And these teeth are a ladder up to his mouth
These teeth are a ladder that I walk
That you can walk too if you want
If you want up to the mouth
The 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
That ghost is brighter than anyone
And fulfils me with hope

And you can use these teeth as a ladder
Up to the mouth's cradle, the mouth's cradle
And you can follow these notes i'm singing
Up to the mouth's cradle, the mouth's cradle
The simplicity of the ghost-like beast
The purity of what it wants and where it goes

Always love, always loves you, always loves you
Infrared love

And you can use these teeth as a ladder
Up to the mouth's cradle, the mouth's cradle
And you can use these 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 osamas and bushes

Triumph Of A Heart Lyrics - Bjork

The nerves are sending shimmering signals
All through my fingers
The veins support
Blood that gushes impulsively towards
Is 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
(That celebrate)
The triumph of a heart that gives all

Smooth soft red velvety lungs
Are pushing a network of oxygen joyfully
Through a nose, through a mouth
But all enjoys, which brings us to
The triumph of a heart that gives all
That gives all

"Vespertine" (2001)

Hidden Place Lyrics - Bjork

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 tears
And so close to
Simply calling you up
I'm 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 the 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 Lyrics - Bjork

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
Who would approach a girl like me
Who caresses cradles his head
In her 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 the mouth
Of a girl like me
To a boy
To a boy
To a boy

It's Not Up To You Lyrics - Bjork

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

Undo Lyrics - Bjork

It's not meant to be a strife
It's not meant to be a struggle uphill
Oh I

It's not meant to be a strife
It's not meant to be a struggle uphill
Oh I

You're trying too hard
Surrender
Give yourself in
You're trying too hard
You're trying too hard, ah

It's not meant to be a strife
It's not meant to be a struggle uphill
Sweetly
It's not meant to be as dry
To enjoy
It's not meant to be a stuggle uphill
Oh I

It's warmer now
Lean into it
Unfold
Unfold in a generous way
Surrender

It's not meant to be as dry (surrender)
It's not meant (undo) to be a struggle uphill (undo)
It's not meant to be as dry
It's not meant to be a struggle uphill

I'm praying
To be
In a generous mode
The kindness kind
The kindness kind
To share
Me
To share me

It's not meant to be as dry
It's not meant to be a struggle uphill

It's not meant to be as dry
It's not meant to be a struggle uphill

Undo
Undo
If you're bleeding
Undo
And if you're sweating
Undo
If you're crying, darling
Undo

Undo
Oh I
Unravel

Pagan Poetry Lyrics - Bjork

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 hibernating

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

Aurora Lyrics - Bjork

Threading
The glacier head
Looking hard for
Moments of shine
From twilight
To twilight
Utter mundane

Aurora
Goddess sparkle
Shoot me
Beyond this suffer
The need
Is great
Aurora
Utter mundane

Aurora
Goddess sparkle
A mountain shade
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
Utter mundane

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

An Echo A Stain Lyrics - Bjork

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 Lyrics - Bjork

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 Lyrics - Bjork

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 Lyrics - Bjork

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
On top 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

[Icelandic part]

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

Unison Lyrics - Bjork

One hand allows the other
So much and 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 allows the other
So much and 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

New World Lyrics - Bjork

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

Ooooh - a sweet clementine
Ooooh - dancers in line
Ooooh ...

If living is seeing
I'm holding my breath
In wonder - I wonder
What happens next?
A new world, a new day to see

I'm softly walking on air
Halfway to heaven from here
Sunlight unfolds in my hair

Ooooh - I'm walking on air
Ooooh - to heaven from here
Ooooh ...

If living is seeing
I'm holding my breath
In wonder - I wonder
What happens next?
A new world, a new day to see

In The Musicals Lyrics - Bjork

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's always someone
To catch me
There's always someone to catch me
There's always someone to catch me
There's always someone to catch me
When you fall

Why do I love you so much?
What kind of magic is this?
How come I can't help adore you?
You were in a musical.

I don't mind it at all
If I'm 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 fall...

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

And I will always be there to catch you
I'll always be there to catch you
I'll always be there to catch you
I'll always be there to catch you
I'll always be there to catch you
You were always there to catch me
And there's always someone
To catch me
You will always be there to catch me
You were always there to catch me

When I'd fall...

ScatterHeart Lyrics - Bjork

Black night is falling
The sun is gone to bed
The innocent are dreaming
As you should, sleepy-head
Sleepy-head, sleepy-head:

All the love above
I send into you
Comfort and protection
I'll watch over you

But don't ask me
What's gonna happen next
I know the future
I'd love to lead you the way
Just to make it easier on you

You are gonna have to find out for yourself

My

Dearest

Scatterheart

There is comfort
Right in the eye
Of the hurricane
Just to make it easier on you

You are gonna have to find out for yourself

All the hurt in the world
You know
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

I've Seen It All Lyrics - Bjork

I've seen it all, I have seen the trees,
I've seen the willow leaves dancing in the breeze
I've seen a man killed by his best friend,
And lives that were over before they were spent.
I've seen what I was - 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?
To be honest, I really don't care...

You've never been to Niagara Falls?
I have seen water, its water, that's all...
The Eiffel Tower, the Empire State?
My pulse was as high on my very first date!
Your grandson's hand as he plays with your hair?
To be honest, I really don't care...

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!

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
You've seen what you were and know what you'll be
You've seen it all - there is no more to see!

Cvalda Lyrics - Bjork

Clatter, crash, clack!
Racket, bang, thump!
Rattle, clang, crack, thud, whack, bam!

It's music! - Now dance!

Listen, Cvalda
You're the dancer
You've got the sparkle in your eyes
Look at me, entrancer!

Clatter, crash, clack...

The clatter-machines
They greet you and say:
"We tap out a rhythm and sweep you away!"

A clatter-machine
What a magical sound
A room full of noises
That spins you around...

Darling Selma
Look who's dancing
Faster than a shooting star!
Cvalda's here!
Cvalda sings...

Clatter, crash, clack...

The clatter-machines
They greet you, and say:
"We tap out a rhythm and sweep you away!"

A clatter-machine!
What a magical sound!
A room full of noises
That spins us around
It spins us around
It spins us around
It spins us around...

Hunter Lyrics - Bjork

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

thought that i could organise freedom
how scandinavian of me
you sussed it out, didn't you?

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...

(you just didn't know me!)

(you just didn't know me!)

Joga Lyrics - Bjork

all the accidents that happen
follow the dot
coinsidense 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 beatuiful 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
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 beatuiful to be!...
...state of emergency...
...is where i want to be...

...state of emergency...

...state of emergency...

Unravel Lyrics - Bjork

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

Bachelorette Lyrics - Bjork

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 Lyrics - Bjork

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

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

5 Years Lyrics - Bjork

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

Immature Lyrics - Bjork

How could I be so immature ?
To think he could replace,
The missing elements in me,
How extremely lazy of me

How could I be so immature ?
To think he could replace,
The missing elements in me,
How extremely lazy of me.

How could I be so immature ?
How could I be so immature ?

Alarm Call Lyrics - Bjork

I have walked this earth
And watched people

It doesn't scare me at all

I can be sinsere
And say I like them

It doesn't scare me at all

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 doesn't 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

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

It doesn't 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 doesn't scare me at all

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

It doesn't scare me at all

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

It doesn't scare me at all

Pluto Lyrics - Bjork

Excuse me
But I just have to
Explode
Explode this body
Off me

I'll be brand new
Brand new tomorrow
A little bit tired
But brand new

All Is Full Of Love Lyrics - Bjork

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 ain't 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
All is full of love

"Post" (1995)

Army Of Me Lyrics - Bjork

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

you're allright
there's nothing wrong
self-sufficience please!
and get to work

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

you're on your own now
we won't save you
your rescue-squad
is too exhausted

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

Hyper Ballad Lyrics - Bjork

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 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

and when it lands
will my eyes
be closed or open?

i'll go through all this
before you wake up
so i can feel happier
to be safe up here with you

The Modern Things Lyrics - Bjork

all the modern things
like cars and such
have always existed

they've just been waiting in a mountain
for the right moment

listening to the irritating noises
of dinosaurs and people
dabbling outside

all the modern things
have always existed
they've just been waiting

to come out
and multiply
and take over

it's their turn now...

It's Oh So Quiet Lyrics - Bjork

it's. oh. so quiet
it'a 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
it's nice and quiet
but soon again
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
but soon again
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

the sky caves in
the devil cuts loose
you blow blow blow blow blow your fuse
when you've fallen in love

ssshhhhhh...

Enjoy Lyrics - Bjork

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 in to this to

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 whitout touching
i'm going to explore
i'm only into this to

enjoy

You've Been Flirting Again Lyrics - Bjork

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 Lyrics - Bjork

in a forrest 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
unexplaind on your collar
crawling in silence
a simple excuse

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
unexplaind on your collar
crawling in silence
a simple excuse

nana na nana
nana na nana
nana na nana
nana na nana

Possibly Maybe Lyrics - Bjork

your flirt finds me out
teases the crack in me
smittens me with hope

possibly maybe probably love

as much as i definitely enjoy solitude
i wouldn't mind perhaps
spending little time with you
sometimes
sometimes

possibly maybe probably love

uncertainly excites me
baby
who knows what's going to happen?
lottery or car crash
or you'll join a cult

possibly maybe probably love

mon petit vulcan
you're eruptions and disasters
i keep calm
admiring your lava
i keep calm

possibly maybe probably love

since we broke up
i'm using lipstick again
i'll suck my tongue
as a remembrance of you

I Miss You Lyrics - Bjork

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 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 will meet 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 Lyrics - Bjork

while i crawl into the unknown
cover me
i'm going hunting for mysteries
cover me

i'm going to prove the possible 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 Lyrics - Bjork

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

these cells are virgins

my headphones
they saved my life
your tape
it lulled me 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

i'm fast asleep now

i'm fast asleep

my headphones
they saved my life
your tape
it lulled me to sleep

"Debut" (1993)

Human Behaviour Lyrics – Bjork

If you ever get close to a human
and human behaviour
be ready to get confused

there's definitely no logic
to human behaviour
but yet so irresistible

there is no map
to human behaviour

they're terribly moody
then all of a sudden turn happy
but, oh, to get involved in the exchange
of human emotions is ever so satisfying

there's no map and
a compass
wouldn't help at all

human behaviour

Crying Lyrics – Bjork

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 carfully
trough 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 'cause i need you

Venus As A Boy Lyrics – Bjork

his wicked sense of humour
suggests exciting sex
his fingers focus on her
touches, he's venus as a boy

he believes in beauty
he's venus as a boy

he's exploring
the taste of her
arousal
so accurate
he sets off
the beauty in het
he's venus as a boy

he believes in beauty
he's venus as a boy

There's More To Life Than This Lyrics – Bjork

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

we could nick a boat
and sneak off to this island
i could bring my little ghettoblaster
there's more to life than this
but we'd have to rush back
to the towns best baker
to get the first bread of the morning
there's more to life than this

Big Time Sensuality Lyrics – Bjork

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

One Day Lyrics – Bjork

one day
it will happen
one day, one day
it will all come true

one day
when you're resdy
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

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

and the beautifullest
fireworks are burning
in the sky just for you

i can feel it

one day
one day

Aeroplane Lyrics – Bjork

I can not live
peacefully without you
for even a moment
l 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 on the phone
makes me happy
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 Lyrics – Bjork

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
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

come to me
i'll take care of you
you don't have to explain
i understand

Violently Happy Lyrics – Bjork

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 calm me down
i'm aiming too high

soothe me

The Anchor Song Lyrics – Bjork

i live by the ocean
and during the night
i dive into it
down to the bottom
underneath all currents
and drop my anchor

and this is where i'm staying

this is my home

Play Dead Lyrics – Bjork

darling stop confusing me
with your wishful thinking
hopeful enbraces
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 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

Gling-Gló Lyrics – Bjork

Gling gló, klukkan sló, - Tic toc, the clock chimed
máninn ofar skyum hló, - Moon smiled above the clouds
lysti upp gamli gótuslód, - Lighting the old trail
thar gladleg Lína stód. - There Lina gaily stood
Gling gló, klukkan sló, - Tic toc, the clock chimed
máninn ofar skyum hló,- Moon smiled above the clouds
Leitar Lási var á leid, - Lasi from Leiti was on his way
til Lína hanns er beid. - To Lina awaiting him
Unnendum er máninn kær, - To sweethearts the moon is dear
umm thau tófraljóma slær. - Around them falls its magic light
Lási á bidilsbuxum var, - Lasi wore his suitor's breeches
brátt frá Línu fær hann svar. - Soon from Lina came his reply
Gling gló, klukkan sló, - Tic toc, the clock chimed
máninn ofar skyum hló. - Moon smiled above the clouds
Lási vard svo hyr á brá, - Lasi wore a happy smile
thvi Lína sagdi "Já". - For Lina answered "Yes"

Luktar Gvendur Lyrics – Bjork

Hann veitti birtu á bádar hendur,
um baeinn sérhvert kvöld
hann luktar Gvendur á liðinni öld

Á gráum hærum gloggt var kenndur
vid glampa á ljosafjöld
hann luktar Gvendur á lidinni öld

Hann heyrdist ganga hægt og hljótt
um hverja götu fram á nott
Hans hjartasá med bros á brá

ef ungan sveinn og yngismey
hann adeins sá hann kveikti ei
en eftirlét theim rókkur skuggablá

Í endur minning æskutid
hann aftur leit, en ástmey blid
Hann örmum vafði fast svo ung og smá

Hann veitti birtu á bádar hendur
um bæinn sérhvert kvöld
hann luktar Gvendur á lidinni öld

Hann heyrdist ganga haegt og hljótt
um hverja götu fram á nott
Hans hjartasá med bros á brá

ef ungan sveinn og yngismey
hann adeins sá hann kveikti ei
en eftirlét theim rókkur skuggablá

Í endur minning aeskutid
hann aftur leit, en ástmey blid
Hann örmum vafði fast svo ung og smá

Hann veitti birtu á bádar hendur
um baeinn sérhvert kvöld
hann luktar Gvendur á lidinni öl

Kata Rokkar Lyrics – Bjork

Sjá...
Kata, Kát med ljósa lokka,
Lífsglöd, hefur yndisthokka,
Kata, kann svo vel ad rokka rokk.

Alltaf, medan dansinn dun ar.
Djass-lynd Kata um gólfid brunar,
Elskar meira en margan grunar rokk.

Hún er smá, hyr á brá,
horfid á - sú er kná!
Allir thrá ad sjá thegar hún tekur rúmbuna.
Hún dansar thá Kata,
Med ljó lokka, lífsglöd, hún hefur yndisthokka.
Hún kann svo vel ad rokka rokk...

Hún er smá, hyr á brá,
Horfid á - sú er kná! -
Allir thrá ad sjá thegar hún tekur rúmbuna.
Hún - thetta er hún Kata - hún, hún dansar
Hún dansar Kata mín, hún dansar
Rokk rokk rokk rokk....

Kata dansar, hún dansar rokk...
Dansar rokk, dansar rokk
Rokk rokk rokk rokk....

Pabbi Minn Lyrics – Bjork

Ó, pabbi minn
Hve undursamleg ást þin var
Ó, pabbi minn
þú avalt tókst mitt svar

Aldrei var neinn
svo ástuðlegur eins og þú
Ó, pabbi minn
þú ætid skilðir allt

Liðin er tid
er leiddir þú mig lítid barn
Brósandi blitt
þú breyttir sorg i gleði

Ó, pabbi minn
eg dáði þina léttu lund
Leikandi kátt
þú lékst þer a þínn hátt

Ó, pabbi minn
Hve undursamleg ást þín var
Æskunnar ómar
ylja mér í dag

Liðin er tid
er leiddir þú mig lítið barn
Brósandi blitt
þú breyttir sorg i gleði

Ó, pabbi minn
eg dáði þína léttu lund
Leikandi kátt
þú lékst þér a þínn hátt

Ó, pabbi minn
Hve undursamleg ást thin var
Æskunnar ómar
ylja mér í dag

Bresti Og Brak Lyrics – Bjork

Slæmar eru nefndirnar, thungt er theirra hlass.
Samt vid munum skjóta theim, rebba fyrir rass.
Thví vid getum jólahaldi frestad fram í mars,
Bara ef oss svo bydur vid ad horfa.

Mér er sem ég heyri bresti og brak,
Undan theim kyngikrafti.
Er thú thar nidri á thingi tekur theim tak,
Thínum med thrumukjafti.

Já, dreifbylingaflokkinn bryt ég á bak,
Eins og fúaflak!
Já, gott ef ég ekki,
(...) kofann og sprengi hid spanskgræna forna thak!

Já, mikid mun thad gledja æi minn ó
- létt' honum dimma daga -
Er litlu börnin kaupa kí-lí-lí-ló,
Af ávöxtum í sinn maga.

Já, kát svo mun ég syngja hæ-æ-æ-hó,
(Og) líka ding-ding-dó,
Thá allt verdur uppselt,
Thó mér finnist nú sjaldan ad selst hafi alveg nóg!

Já, mikid mun thad gledja æi minn ó
- létt' honum dimma daga -
Er litlu börnin kaupa kí-lí-lí-ló,
Af ávöxtum í sinn maga.

Já, kát svo mun ég syngja hæ-æ-æ-hó,
(Og) líka ding-ding-dó,
Thá allt verdur uppselt,

Thó mér finnist nú sjaldan ad selst hafi alveg nóg!
Thó mér finnist nú sjaldan ad selst hafi alveg nóg!
Thó mér finnist nú sjaldan ad selst hafi alveg nóg!

Bella Símamær Lyrics – Bjork

Hún Bella, Bella, Bella, Bella símamær,
Er ekki alveg fædd í gær.
Hún Bella, Bella, Bella, Bella símamær,
Hún kann á flestum hlutum skil, og kallar á vidtalsbil.

Í ástarmálum gildir adeins forganghsrad,
Ég ætti best ad vita thad.
Í fjöri jafnt sem fegurd alla út hún slær,
Hún Bella, Bella, Bella símamær.

Halló, halló, já hvad heitid ér?
Hvad viljid thér mér? Ég thekki ydur nú.
Halló, halló, nei ert etta thú?

Og augun hennar eru bædi blá og djúp og skær,
Hún brosir dátt og hlær.

Hún Bella, Bella, Bella, Bella símamær,
Er ekki alveg fædd í gær.
Í fjöri jafnt sem fegurd alla út hún slær,
Hún Bella, Bella, Bella símamær.

Halló, halló, já hvad heitid ér?
Hvad viljid thér mér enn? Ég thekki ydur nú.
Halló, halló, nei ert etta thú?

Og augun hennar eru bædi blá og djúp og skær,
Hún brosir dátt og hlær.

Hún Bella, Bella, Bella, Bella símamær,

Í fjöri jafnt sem fegurd alla út hún slær,
Hún Bella, Bella, Bella símamær.

Litli Tónlistarmaðurinn Lyrics – Bjork

Mamma - ertu vakandi mamma mín?
Mamma - ég vil koma til thín
Ó mamma - gaman væri ad vera stór
Tha vildi ég stjórna bædi hljómsveit og kór

Mamma - thú ert elskuleg, mamma mín
Mér finnst, gott ad koma til thín
Ó en mamma ádan dreymdi mig draum um thig
En datt thá framúr, og thad trufladi mig

Thú varst drottning í hárri höll
Hljómsveitin álfar, menn, og tröll
Lék thér og söng í senn
Thú varst svo stórfengleg
Tröllin thau bördu á bumburnar
Blómálfar léku á flauturnar
Fidlurnar mennskir menn
A mendólín ég
Mamma.

Allir mændum vid upp til thín
Eins og blóm thegar sólin skín
Er thínum fadmi frá
Gjafir flugu um allt

Flestum gekk vel ad gripa sitt
Gladur nádi ég fljótt í mitt
En stóll er steig ég á
Stód tæpt svo hann valt

Ó mamma- thú ert elskuleg mamma mín
Mér finnst gott ad koma til thín
Ó mamma - gaman væri ad vera stór
Thá vildi ég stjórna bædi hljómsveit og kór

ÞAð Sést Ekki Sætari Mey Lyrics – Bjork

Thad lenti í drætti, - It was quite a delay
ad módir mín mig ætti, - When my mother had me
thvi hún var svo gískid grey. - But then she's such a slender sort
En læknrinn var sóttur, - The doctor was fetched
og loksins ól hún dóttur, - And finally her daughter was born
og thád sést ekki sætari mey. - And none had ever seen a sweeter girl
En pabbi var sjaálfur, - My father spent usually
á sjónum alltaf hálfur, - His time at sea half-drunk
svo hann gat ekki lengur sagt nei. - But he could not deny me
Fyrst var hann mjög sleginn, - At first he was rather shocked
en seinna sagdi hann feginn. - But then he said, relieved
Ad thad sést ekki sætari mey. - None shall ever see a sweeter girl
Sætari mey, - Such a sweet girl
sætari mey, - Such a sweet girl
nei thad sést ekki sætari mey. - There is no sweeter girl
Og fyrr en mig vardi, - Before I knew it
hver strákur á mig stardi, - Every boy would gaze at me
eins og stelpur á gleym-mér-ei. - As girls gaze at Forget-Me-Nots
Their fóru ad skjálfa, - They'd shiver
og sögdu vid sig sjálfa, - And say to themselves
hún er sorglega stygg, - She's hard to get -
en mjóg trygg, ad ég hygg, - But very loyal, I think
og thad sést ekki sætari mey. - And there is no sweeter girl
Ég lærdi i bernsku, - I learned quite early
ad blikkaá finni ensku, - To speak proper English
og min söngrödd var sweet and gay. - And my song was sweet and gay
En vestur á landi, - But while out west
ég lenti í hjónabandi. - I stumbled into marriage
Thad er sorglegt fyrir sidprúda mey - It was sad for such a nice girl
Hann lagdi í sinn vana, - He was used to
ad elska* Ameríkana, - Loving American girls
svo ég kyssti hann og sagdi OK. - So I kissed him and said OK
En illt var í efni, - Then I discovered deceit
hann var ódamála í svefni, - When he spoke in his sleep
og thá reyndist hann, - And I found out
ramm islenskt grey. - He was very Icelandic after all
Islenskt grey, - Just a poor Icelander
islenskt grey, - Just a poor Icelander
sem ásædist islenska mey. - Who wanted an Icelandic girl
En nú er önnur öldin, - Everything has since changed
ég dansa kát á kvöldin, - Now I go dancing every night
og thiy kalla mig gleym-mér-ei. - And boys call me Forget-Me-Not
Og piltarnir their skjálfa, - And they shiver
their segja vid sig sjálfa, - They say to themselves
nei, thú setydir mér blossandi ást. - No, you send me currents of love
Thvílíkt hnoss! - Such luck!
Thvi thad sést ekki sætari mey. - Since there is no sweeter girl.

Bílavísur Lyrics – Bjork

Ertu ad koma?
Já elskam min góda
Alveg hreint á minútunni
Hæ - ertu á nyjum bil?

Alveg ertu ágetur
Agalega saetur,
ad etla bjoda mér
thad er alveg hreint í stil

Eg ef ad thed snjó ar
thá erutil nóga
kedjur sem ad koma
okkur óhult um alla leid

Elskan hann Dóri
minn sterki og stóri
hann styrir svo vel
thott gatan sé ekki breid

O! Tharna er hann! Já
flott skalthad vera
Ford-Model nitjan hundrad
og ég veit ekki hvad

Uppi hann stig ég
á ástarvangjum flígeg
uppi Mosfellssveit fer í ævintyraleit
Med hand tösku stora ég hallast ad Dóri

É gormurinn i framsaetinu stakk mig á versa stad!
En thad er nú svona ad threyja og vona
En thetta lagast fljott
Dóri minn sérrum thad

Kedjan er slitinn og skellur í bilnum
skríddu undur bilinn Dóri
greyid mitt flyttu ther
Ertu alveg ódur ó jé minn gódur!

Tharna reifstu sokkinn minn
álfurinn minn ég fer aldrey
aftur út med thér aleinum
Ég sver i ég hef aldrey á æfi minni

Ekid um á slikum bil
O núna springur í honum syngur!
Og a endanum stingst hann ofaní
moldar-haug

Tondeleyo Lyrics – Bjork

Á sudrænum sólskinsdegi
Eg sá thig, o ástin mín, fyrst
Thú settist hjá mér í sandinn
Thá var sungid og fadmad og kysst

Drukkid, dansad og kysst
Tondeleyo, tondeleyo.
Aldrei gleymast mér augun thín svörtu
Og aldrei slógu tvö gladari hjörtu
Tondeleyo, Tondeleyo,

Hve áhyggjulaus og alsæll
í örmun thínum ég lá
Og oft hef ég elskad sídan
En aldrei jafnheitt eins og tha

Aldrei jafn-eldheitt sem thá
Tondeleyo,tondeleyo.
Ævilangt hefdi ég helzt viljad sofa
Vid hlid thér í dálitlum svertingjakofa
Tondeleyo,tondeleyo.

Ég Veit Ei Hvad Skal Segja Lyrics – Bjork

Ég veit ei hvad skal segja
Eg hugsa dag og nótt
Thad veldur stundum vanda
Ad vera eftirsótt!

Ég er svo ung og óreynd sál
Og eti í hug mér byr
Eg myndi kasta krónu
En their eru bara thrír

Hvernig get ég vitad hvad skal segja
Efi og vafi í sal mér byr
Ekki get ég kastad krónu
Um kærleikann thví ad their eru thrír!

Thad er hart ad thurfa ad segja
Vid thennan "já" eda "nei"
Ef ég elska thá alla, verd ég ad endingu piparmey!

Veit ei hvad skal segja
Eg held ég elski hann Jón
Hann dansar eins og engill
En ekur bíl sem flón

Hann hrytur eins og hrútur
Svo ég festi ei blund á brá
Thad sagdi mér hún mamm' hans
Hún mamma hans, svei mér thá!

Hvernig get ég vitad hvad skal segja
Efi og vafi í sal mér byr
Ekki get ég kastad krónu
Um kærleikann thví ad their eru thrír!

Thad er hart ad thurfa ad segja
Um thennan "já" eda "nei"
Ef ég elska thá alla, verd ég ad endingu piparmey!

Ég veit ei hvad skal segja
Eg held ég elski hann Geir
Hann hvíslar stundum "Heyrdu!"
En sídan aldrei meir!

Ég kysst' hann eitt kvöldid
Nei, hann kyssti mig, svei mér thá!
Thá hrópadi drengur hissa:
"Nei heyrdu! Ég rak mig á!"

Hvernig get ég vitad hvad skal segja
Efi og vafi í sal mér byr
Ekki get ég kastad krónu
Um kærleikann thví ad their eru thrír!

Thad er hart ad thurfa ad segja
Vid thennan "já" eda "nei"
Ef ég elska thá alla, verd ég ad endingu piparmey!

Ég veit ei hvad skal segja
Eg held ég elski hann Svein
Eg thori aldrei ad
Vera med honum ein

Hans atlot kveikja ástarbál
Svo undarlega heit
Thad segja thær Svana og Gunna
En ég sjálf veit ei meir!

Hvernig get ég vitad hvad skal segja
Efi og vafi í sal mér byr
Ekki get ég kastad krónu
Um kærleikann thví ad their eru thrír!

Thad er hart ad thurfa ad segja
Vid thennan "já" eda "nei"
Ef ég elska thá alla, verd ég ad endingu piparmey!

Í Dansi Með þér Lyrics – Bjork

Sérdu rúmbudansinn duna nú,
Dönsum thví, ég og thú.
Svifum létt um gólfid til og frá,
Töfrabrá, logathrá.

Er thad draumur eda ert thú hér,
Enn í kvöld, einn med mér.
Armar thínir vekja ástarbál,
Unadsmál, eld í sál.

Dönsum saman uns dagurinn rís,
Thótt thu dyljist thví minnist ég thin.
Og thín hond leidir hond mína heim,
Ut í hamingjugeim.

Sérdu rúmbudansinn duna nú,
Dönsum thví, ég og thú.
Svifum létt um gólfid til og frá,
Töfrabrá, logathrá.

Er thad draumur eda ert thú hér,
Enn í kvöld, einn med mér.
Armar thínir vekja ástarbál,
Unadsmál, eld í sál.

Dönsum saman uns dagurinn rís,
Thótt thu dyljist thví minnist ég thin.
Og thín hond leidir hond mína heim,
Ut í hamingjugeim

Börnin Við Tjörnina Lyrics – Bjork

Gaman er fyrir hin gódu börn,
Ad ganga med pabba út ad tjörn.
Sjá thar lítinn bra-bra-bra,
Og börnin skemmta sér, ha-ha-ha.

Gefa honum braud ad bíta í,
Börnin hafa svo gaman af thví.
Saddur verdur bra-bra-bra,
Og börnin skemmta sér, ha-ha-ha.

Úti í hólma á sér ból,
Ungunum sínum veitir skjól.
Allir eiga their sömu sæng,
Sofa undir mömmu væng.
Fara ad reyna ad fleyta sér,
Fús ad kenna theim mamma er.
Hún er theirra víta vörn,
Verndar og fædir sín litlu börn.

Eitt sinn lítinn unga ég sá,
Auminginn villtist mömmu frá.
Sífellt í hring hann synti thar,
Og sá hana ekki neins stadar.

Mamma vissi vel um thad,
Og á vængjunum sínum kom thar ad.
Ósköp gladur vard unginn thá,
Og öruggur sinni mömmu hjá.

Ef ad tjörnin okkar frys,
Uti er gaman ad sleda á ís.
Thá er oftast úti svalt,
Og aumingja bra-bra thá svo kalt,

Med kalda fætur á köldum ís,
Króknar stundum, deyr og frys.
Börnin harma bra-bra sinn,
Og búinn er söguthátturinn.

Ruby Baby Lyrics – Bjork

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?

Oh, 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
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,

Each time I see my baby my heart cries
I'm going to steal you 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
I, I'd go out just to get her all the same
Got some loving money too
Gonna give it all to you

My Ruby, my Ruby, my Ruby
When will you be mine?
My Ruby, ahhhh, when will you be mine?

I Can't Help Loving That Man Lyrics – Bjork

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

It's In Our Hands Lyrics – Bjork

Look no further
Look no further
I 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 here
It's in our hands

Look no further
I 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
