Stream of cold
Breathing slowly
Tired feet
Pass the ground
Gentle fold
Sun of gold
And blooms of green
And pass it right now
Where you stand right now
I open to
Only you now
I choose thou
I refuse now
Full of glory now
Painful paper
I carry you
I nurture you
Give birth to you
I can
Feel your heart’s end
Touch me again
I surrender
I can
Feel like bright
From the inside
Jungle red
Easier felt than said
I’m raising you
You’re my greatest ode to you
I carry you
I nurture you
Give birth to you
I can
Feel your heart’s end
Touch me again
I surrender
Full of power
I surrender now
I stand up now
I am open to
Only you now
Hide you inside
Hide with you now
Where are you now
Where is my paper
Holding this
In the water
Let it cleanse
What is left of me
I face this
Sorrow
I rise from this
I surrender now
I stand up now
I am open to
Only you...

Ólöf Arnalds - Surrender

Mars 2011

Infos

Surrender est sorti sur l’album Innundir Skinni d’Ólöf Arnalds . Cette dernière avait envoyé la chanson à Björk pour lui demander conseil et Björk a pris la liberté d’y ajouter des chœurs qu’elle a improvisés. Aimant le résultat, Ólöf Arnalds a gardé cette version sur son disque.

Ólöf Arnalds à propos du titre

I played Björk the album while it was still in mixing and she got an idea for a vocal line for it and offered to record it. I´m very grateful and honoured since her voice is a unique instrument in the world.
