Wanderlust

Paroles

I am leaving this harbour
Giving urban a farewell
Its habitants seem too keen on god
I cannot stomach their rights and wrong

I have lost my origin
And i don’t want to find it again
Rather sailing into nature’s laws
And be held by ocean’s paws

Wanderlust !
Relentlessly craving wanderlust
Peel off the layers
Until you get to the core

Did i imagine it would be like this
Was it something like this i wished for
Or will i want more ?

Lust for comfort
Suffocates the soul
This relentless
Restlessness
Liberates me
Sets me free

I feel at home whenever
The unknown surrounds me
I receive its embrace
Aboard my floating house

Wanderlust !
Relentlessly craving wanderlust
Peel off the layers
Until you get to the core

Did i imagine it would be like this
Was it something like this i wished for
Or will i want more ?

Wanderlust !
From island to island
Wanderlust !
United in movement
Wonderful !
I enjoy it with you

Wanderlust !
Wanderlust !
Can you spot a pattern ?

Relentlessly restless
Restless relentlessly
Restless relentlessly

Can you spot a pattern ?

Björk à propos du titre

« This one is my manifesto  », says Björk. I had written a whole diary of what I wanted the lyric to be but I couldn’t see the forest for the trees. Sjon took it and came back with something totally different. And I took his version, edited it, put my own lines in. It took a while. It’s about that adventurous spirit and reflects where I was at that point in time. Even now, I’d write a different kind of anthem.  »

Damian Taylor à propos du titre

« From memory Björk wanted the morse code for "Wanderlust, relentlessly craving Wanderlust". She was more into the effect of the dots and dashes layering over each other then specifically trying to communicate words in morse code, we just thought it would be a laugh if it actually said something ! The brass rhythms (obviously) aren’t morse, so it was more about combining in with their rhythms and becoming more chaotic and layered. I’m not sure if many or any of the full phrase found their way onto the record, I think what people have rightly noticed is that there are a lot of "Wanderlust"s layered on top of each other »
