Hyperballad
Björk Lyrics


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 all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

I go through all 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
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

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

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

Safe up (here with you)

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

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
When it lands
Will my eyes
Be closed or open?

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

La novedad Al momento

same thing as Richard D. James, maybe they are aliens, that couple of producers are out of this world.

hiobization

Ofuck dude, the best comment ever 😮

Namaste 🍀

Great Awaking has BEGUN 🥰

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)

She also said it is from a dream she had

👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿

Rebel Red

It’s very obvious it’s about post natal depression but she would never admit that publicly, no one wants to say they ever had feelings of hurting their child... it’s all there tho ❤️

Fancy Girl13

@Alex C YES !!

Fancy Girl13

Bijork was a little pimp 💜 .. i think its safe to assume her a very passionate woman
