Play Dead
Björk Lyrics


Darling, stop confusing me,
With your wishful thinking.
Hopeful embraces,
Don't you understand?
I have to go through this,
I belong to here where no-one cares,
And no-one loves.
No light, no air to live in,
A place called hate,
The city of fear.

I play dead,
It stops the hurting.
I play dead,
And the hurting stops.

It's sometimes just like sleeping,
Curling up inside my private tortures.
I nestle into pain,
Hug suffering,
Caress every ache

I play dead, it stops the hurting.
I play dead, it stops the hurting.
I play dead, it stops the hurting.

Darling... stop confusing me
with your wishful thinking.
Hopeful embraces,
don't you understand?
I have to go through this
I belong to here where
no-one cares and no-one loves
no light no air to live in
a place called hate
the city of fear

Oh...

i play dead
it stops the hurting
i play dead
and the hurt stops

it's sometimes just like sleeping
curling up inside my private tortures
i nestle into pain
hug suffering
caress every ache

Oh..

i play dead
it stops the hurting
i play dead
it stops the hurting
i play dead
it stops the hurting.
i play dead
it stops the hurting..."

Should have been a Bond theme.

Why? This is her personal feelings vented into her work and is probably about depression. Maybe James Bond has depression too. But even so this really has nothing to do with James Bond. I love James Bond so I'm not bashin his movies or anything like that, but I'm just sayin I don't understand why you want in a James Bond movie 🤷🏿‍♀️

Stephixx_ only thing missing is the Help Help Angel.. you got the lyrics down.
And the second Oh in your lyrics is Help Angel Help.

@Yousef Ghaneemah Björk, being from Iceland, has sometimes a different pronunciation of words. 'Hurting' is also right in the lyrics but sounds like 'hursting' when she sings.
Thanks for responding though. I always appreciate a nice conversation. :)
