Jóga
Björk Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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
The 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, oh
You don't have to speak, I feel

Emotional landscapes
They puzzle me, confuse
Can the riddle get 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
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 emergency
How beautiful to be
State of emergency
Is where I want to be




State of emergency
How beautiful to be

Overall Meaning

Björk's song Jóga is a complex exploration of the human experience of emotions - specifically, how other people can help us navigate through difficult times and bring us to a state of "emergency" that feels beautiful and transformative. The lyrics suggest that accidents and coincidence are not always meaningless, but can be part of a larger pattern that only makes sense when viewed with the guidance and support of people we trust. The verses about "emotional landscapes" and "nerves that hurt" paint a vivid image of inner turmoil and confusion, but the chorus provides a hopeful message that suggests that these states can be resolved through human connection and empathy.


Throughout the song, Björk uses nature imagery to emphasize the idea that human emotions are part of something much larger and more interconnected. The title itself, "Jóga," refers to the volcanic landscape of Iceland, where Björk grew up, and many of the lyrics describe the beauty and potential danger of natural phenomena like mountains, oceans, and storms. By linking human emotions to the power of nature, Björk suggests that our feelings are not just internal experiences, but part of a larger system that we can learn to understand and harness.


Ultimately, "Jóga" is a deeply psychological song that asks listeners to reflect on their own experiences of pain, growth, and intimacy. By framing these experiences within a broader context of patterns and connections, Björk invites us to see our own struggles as part of a larger, beautiful whole.
