Paroles

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
then 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
you don’t have to speak - I feel

Emotional landscapes
they puzzle me
then 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

-----

When I’ve lost my cards, you deal
me another hand
even when I sleep, you’re real
on your way to me
you don’t have to speak - I feel

This strengh I get from you
I rest my head in your hands
but when I leave, I leave you only to :
give out to the others, this :

State of emergency...

Sortie : septembre 1997
1er single de Homogenic

Le titre a été enregistré en Espagne aux studios El Cortijo. La chanson porte le nom d’une des meilleures amies de Björk, qui est aussi sa masseuse en tournée. Les paroles de la chanson sont à la fois en rapport avec elle et avec l’Islande.

Björk à propos du titre

"I think that songs is several things. At the time, I was going to move to London for a couple of months to record an album. I ended up doing two records and touring the world. I’d never been so long away from Iceland, so when I started preparing for Homogenic, it was very obviously supposed to be a love album to Iceland nature. I’d learned enough about studios and beats to make modern Icelandic pop music. It’s isn’t Icelandic music trying to be English or American. I was doing a lot of experimenting with beats trying to make them sound volcanic. With this song, I really had a sort of National Anthem in mind. Not the National Anthem but certain classic Icelandic songs -very romantic, very proud. All the puffin stories are rubbish, though." Record Collector, Aout 2002
