  1. lo mas perfacto de la vida los dos mejores albums de bjork fusionados volat+vespertine casi me nuero al escucharla

  2. Pedalling through
    The dark currents
    I find an accurate copy
    A blueprint of the pleasure in me

    [Chorus 1]
    (Swirling black lilies totally ripe)
    A secret code carved
    A secret code carved
    (Swirling black lilies totally ripe)

    [Verse 2]
    He offers a handshake
    Crooked five fingers
    They form a pattern
    Yet to be matched

    [Chorus 2]
    On the surface simplicity
    (Swirling black lilies totally ripe)
    But the darkest pit in me
    And it's pagan poetry
    (Swirling black lilies totally ripe)
    Pagan poetry

    [Verse 3]
    Morse coding signals (signals)
    They pulsate (wake me up)
    They wake me up
    (pulsate) from my hibernating

    [Chorus 2]
    On the surface simplicity
    (Swirling black lilies totally ripe)
    But the darkest pit in me
    And it's pagan poetry
    (Swirling black lilies totally ripe)
    Pagan poetry

    (Swirling black lilies totally ripe)
    (Swirling black lilies totally ripe)

    [Outro]
    I love him, I love him
    I love him, I love him
    I love him, I love him
    I love him, I love him
    I…
    (She loves him, she loves him)
    This time
    (She loves him, she loves him)
    I'm going to keep it to myself
    (She loves him, she loves him)
    This time
    (She loves him, she loves him)
    I'm going to 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
    (She loves him, she loves him)
    (She loves him, she loves him)
    (She loves him, she loves him)
    (She loves him, she loves him)

  3. @therealKINDLE I understand what you're saying. I don't obsess over Bjork, I simply value accuracy. Since you make make your own material, you probably wouldn't like people making inaccurate statements about your music, and would likely make that clear to people spreading it around. I did respond with sarcasm, and if that hurt you, i apologize.

  4. @ExtravertmE I'll do what the heck I please!! You really need to get a life & stop these obsessive pernickety rants with haughty replies, JUST because not everyone lives, breaths & sleeps Björk like you. I Listen to thousands of tracks, & spend most days creating my own material. I don't have the time to reconcile all the lyrics I happen to listen to. Good day to you. >:

  5. @therealKINDLE I thought that the video might be the reason, because you're not the first one to make that mistake. But since one can rarely make out exactly what she's articulating anyway, lyric web pages are essential to getting an accurate understanding of many of her songs. Some people are content to project their own personal interpretations on the song, and everyone does that to some extent, but at least get the lyrics right first.

  6. @ExtravertmE Yeh coz that particular section is very clear & easy to make out. It's not like it put through copious reverberation is it? :/ That's how I heard it, & it's relation to the music video where she is actually putting needles into her flesh. Maybe I should just do the off with listening to her music altogether & simply read Lyrics Web pages.

  7. @therealKINDLE Hopefully you've discovered by now that the lyrics say, "hand myself over", not "hurt myself". I don't even understand why that would make any sense.

  8. @therealKINDLE [accuracy vs. feeling] but, yeah, her voice sounds tired since 2007. on her wiki page it says she's taking vocal lessons. it's funny to imagine bjork with a teacher. 🙂

  9. @ninbin34 You obviously don't! Yeh, You're right.. Notes in Music? We should just use any old sound with no control, nor composition over pitch what so ever. How silly of me.

  10. ive listened to this song so many times but it still touches me ;_;
