Isobel

07. Isobel

Paroles

in a forest pitch-dark
glowed the tiniest spark
it burst into flame
like me, like me

my name isobel, married to myself
my love isobel, living by herself

in a heart full of dust
lives a creature called lust
it surprises and scares
like me, like me

my name isobel, married to myself
my love isobel, living by herself

when she does it she means to
moth delivers her message
unexplained on your collar
crawling in silence
a simple excuse

nana na nana, nana na nana

in a tower of steel
nature forges a deal
to raise wonderful hell
like me, like me

my name isobel, married to myself
my love isobel, living by herself

when she does it she means to
moth delivers her message
unexplained on your collar
crawling in silence
a simple excuse

nana na nana, nana na nana
nana na nana, nana na nana

Björk à propos des paroles

Björk had a book full of the lyrics ideas for Isobel but nothing that worked.

I’d been fighting like a lunatic, and going completely bonkers. I knew that if I waited for three months, threw away the book, preferably burning it, then I’d wake up one morning with the lyric. But I badly wanted this song on the album. I didn’t know what to do.

What she did was contact Sjón.
