♫ Björk Lyrics


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

State of emergency
How beautiful to be

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

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

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

State of emergency
How beautiful to be

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

[Pre-Chorus 1]
It's become a habit
A way to start the day

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

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

[Verse 2]
It's 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 till they crash
I imagine what my body would sound like
Slamming against those rocks

[Pre-Chorus 2]
And when it lands
Will my eyes be closed or open?

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

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

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

[Post-Chorus]
Safe up here with you
Safe up here with you
Safe up here with you
Safe up here with you
Safe up here with you
Safe up here with you
Safe up here with you
Safe up here with you

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

It's 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

Can you imagine being the husband of Bjork in this song?

*Having a friend over for dinner
“Hey can I get a fork?”
“Sure man” *opens up drawer “umm… I have an egg beater or one of those corn cob prongs, which would you like?”
“What happened to all your silverware?”
“Aw man, you know that cliff over there?”
*points out the window to and ocean cliff clearing
“It’s my wife man. Shes been doing this where she takes all our shit and just throwing it onto the rocks”
“What? Why?”
“I don’t know, I think it’s an Icelandic cultural difference”
“Did you try stopping her?”
“Yeah man, but she does it while I’m asleep”
“Uh, I guess I’ll take the prong thing”
*hands him prong
“Anyway, I was gonna ask you, does your brother still work on transmissions at his shop”
“Yeah, why?”
“I’m having transmission issues”
“How do you know it’s the transmission?”
“Because it’s gone. Like completely gone”
“WHAT?!?! Don’t tell me…”
“Yeah, she threw that over too, I don’t even know how”
“Fine, I’ll call him we watch the game”
“About that…”
*points to window as Bjork giggling as makes a beeline towards the cliff with a flatscreen TVs under one arm

everyone jokes about Björk being an alien but some of her songs like this one are the most human ones I've ever heard

Mushi Alcivar

She's surhuman!

Jennifer Tapia

Why did people say that that bjork is being alien that’s not nice

Jeremy Stonecipher

As I get older I feel that she is more human. As if she may have a disconnection to social norms

Edward Marshall

Almost positive she was sexually abused as a child. Her lyrics are about trust issues, suicidal ideation, and self destruction.

Björk explains: "I guess that song is about when you're in a relationship and it's going really well and you're really happy and maybe you have given up parts of yourself. To fall in love and be in a relationship for a long time is like giving a lot of parts of you away because the relationship becomes more important than you as individuals. It's a bit of a tricky balance. I think everyone in a relationship needs to know not to forget themselves..." (from an interview by David Hemingway)

Chisa Tatum

That's very true but in toxic relationships. In healthy ones you both still know yourselves. You can Also be single ,( which I'm not) love yourself genuinely and still desire to have someone to share your happiness with. Some people mistake desiring a relationship as being needy. Not really true. Anyway I love bjork shes awesome

no youtube name

it sounds like a domestic abuse situation. Björk is throwing away car parts and bottles and other things that her partner can’t hit her with so she “can feel safe again”.
The suicidal thoughts in the lyrics about jumping off the cliff support my interpretation.
Often artists won’t reveal the True meanings of their songs if they’re too personal.
When asked about the song in an interview she started by saying “I guess” so you can tell she was making up an interpretation for the public.
She also may have been worried about being targeted for “provocative and harmful lyrical content” as some might see them as, as opposed to honesty and difficulty made into a beautiful song.

Being able to have boundaries so you can enjoy the things you like as well. "Babe sorry I'm gonna have a rain check today", so I can enjoy myself and do things I want to do for myself.

Björk once said that this song is about that stage in a relationship where the initial excitement is gone, and staying together becomes a conscious choice. Nobody else has dared to explore that theme much, let alone turn it into such a bombastic song.
