  1. 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
    They pulsate and wake me up
    From my hibernate

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

    Swirling black lilies totally ripe

    This time
    I'm gonna keep me to myself
    This time
    I'm gonna keep me all to myself

    And it makes me want to hand myself over
    And it makes me want to hand myself over…

  2. K so I would never film myself having sex or sew pearls into my skin for art 😷 but if you have an open mind you can see that there is a bit of genius throughout this video and it’s imagery lol. I first watched this 2 years ago and I was so mesmerized by the part where she’s yelling in the pearl dress with the wind blowing her hair and the beautiful instrumentation playing, she looked like a goddess.

    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
    She loves him, she loves him
    She loves him, she loves him
    She loves him, she loves him

    This time
    I'm gonna keep it to myself

    I'm gonna keep me all to myself
    But he makes me want to hand myself over

  4. I absolutely love everything about this song and video.

  5. Brodząc w tych
    mrocznych strumieniach
    Odnajduję
    Dokładną kopię
    Odwzorowanie
    Przyjemności
    Wewnątrz mnie

    Wirujące, czarne lilie, całkowicie dojrzałe
    Wyryty tajny kod
    Wirujące, czarne lilie, całkowicie dojrzałe
    Wyryty tajny kod

    On oferuje
    Uścisk dłoni
    Wykrzywione
    Pięć palców
    One tworzą formę
    Którą trzeba dopiero dopasować

    Na zewnątrz skromność (prostota)
    Lecz najciemniejsza otchłań we mnie
    To pogańska poezja
    Pogańska poezja

    Sygnały zaszyfrowane Morse'm (sygnały)
    Pulsują (budzą mnie) i wybudzają mnie
    (pulsują) z mojej hibernacji

    Na zewnątrz skromność (prostota)
    Wirujące, czarne lilie, całkowicie dojrzałe
    Lecz najciemniejsza otchłań we mnie
    To pogańska poezja
    Wirujące, czarne lilie, całkowicie dojrzałe
    Pogańska poezja

    Wirujące, czarne lilie, całkowicie dojrzałe

    Kocham go, kocham go
    Kocham go, kocham go
    Kocham go, kocham go
    Kocham go, kocham go
    Ona go kocha, ona go kocha

    Tym razem
    Ona go kocha, ona go kocha
    Zatrzymam to dla siebie
    Ona go kocha, ona go kocha
    Ona go kocha, ona go kocha
    Tym razem
    Zatrzymam siebie całą wyłącznie dla mnie
    Ona go kocha, ona go kocha
    A on sprawia, że chcę mu się oddać
    Ona go kocha, ona go kocha
    Ona go kocha, ona go kocha
    To on sprawia, że chcę się oddać

  6. i was 18 when this song came out, and i took me a while to understand, but i am 35 today (same age as she is in this video) and now i get what she means. THIS IS THE REAL MESSAGE OF THE SONG: that sometimes you can give too much of yourself in a relationship, that the love you built can become destructive, sacrificial and consuming. that is why she sings, "this time i am going to keep me to myself"- it's not a popular perception in today's obsession with "BAE" and "goals" but as always, Bjork sings from a deeper instinct, this time it is from self-preservation. true enough, the partner she was with (Matthew Barney) also did end up wrecking the life they built together. so in 2001, her instincts were correct.

  7. People think bjork is somehow a god or some kind of alien. But I think she's the most human musician I've ever come across

  8. She can sing. And her music is pretty good. Got this album Vespertine Back when it first came out.

  9. Love ur self but Love your child more ! If you found Mr right keep him if he is ready if not please wait or slap him or her sensible Love and best wishes Paul… 🙂

  10. This time, im gonna keep it to myself. This time im gonna keep me all to myself. And he makes me want to hand myself Over.

  11. Ok, just a quick break down of what this all means.
    She loves the person she's singing about, that much is clear, but she's also going on about how much it hurts to love them. The dress she's wearing signifies this to an extent, it's beautiful, but it's literally held on through piercings going through her body, it's obviously uncomfortable and painful, but she still wears it, much like how the relationship she's in causes her pain, but she carries on anyway.

  12. I will personally set fire to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame if they have the audacity to ignore her…but you didn't hear it from me.

  13. I hope I find someone that sees the raw beauty in this video like I do

  14. I’m surprised that YouTube didn’t restrict this because of her boobs lol.

  15. I just discovered her and her music sorta gives me a Anna Barney vibe

  16. Total "fuck" face @ :48. Only Björk could turn homemade porn into the most beautiful artistic vision realized in music video history.

  17. i want to lick on those amalgam fillings while french kissing her.
