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

I wish I'd only look

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

Overall Meaning

In Björk's song "Enjoy," the singer expresses a desire for simplicity and immobility in her life. The opening lyrics, "I wish I want to stay here, I wish this be enough, I wish I only love you, I wish simplicity," indicate her longing to remain in one place and to be content with what she has. However, the next few lines refer to the "speed out there," which "magnetizes" her to it. This could be seen as a metaphor for the fast-paced world outside of her own, which draws her in despite her desire for calmness. She admits to being enticed by it but also states that she has no fear. She enjoys the thrill of it, but only for its entertainment value; she has no interest in participating in it seriously.


The latter half of the song refers to Björk's experience with sensory exploration. She wishes she could observe without touching and smell without tasting. She also mentions "sex without touching," which could be interpreted as the experience of intimacy without physical contact or perhaps as a metaphor for enjoying something without fully indulging or committing to it. Björk concludes by reiterating that what she is doing is just for enjoyment and that she has no further expectations.


Overall, "Enjoy" is about the pleasure of living in the present moment and experiencing life without any kind of obligation or pressure. It's about appreciating the little things, without the need for any further complications or responsibilities. In a way, the song is an ode to hedonism and living without baggage.
