Possibly Maybe


Your flirt
it finds me out
teases the crack in me
smittens me with hope

Probably maybe probably love

As much as I definitely enjoy solitude
I wouldn’t mind, perhaps
spending little time with you
sometimes, sometimes

Possibly maybe probably love

Uncertainty excites me, baby
who knows what’s going to happen ?
lottery or car crash - or you’ll join a cult

Probably maybe possibly love

Mon petit vulcan
you’re eruptions and disasters
I keep calm
admiring the lava, I keep calm

Possibly maybe probably love

Electric shocks ? I love them !
with you, dozen a day
but after a while I wonder
where’s that love you promised me ? where is it ?

Possibly maybe probably love

How can you offer me love like that ?
my heart’s burned
how can you offer me love like that ?
I’m exhausted - leave me alone !

Possibly maybe probably love

Since we broke up
I’m using lipstick again
I’ll suck my tongue
in remembrance of you

5e single de Post

Björk à propos du titre

I wanted each verse to be each month. The first month is February, and the next verse is March. There’s maybe 30 seconds between each verse, so you’re listenning to the song and 30 seconds later is another month.
It’s a calendar thing. I wanted to have ...possibly maybe...(dingdong, dingdong)...probably love...(dingdong, dingdong), then boiiing ! the first verse.
Just to show how you feel different each month when you’re going through a relationship.
That’s why I decided to have all choruses the same, but it’s a different melody every verse.

« Nellee Hooper et Marius de Vries se chargent de mettre en place une atmosphère nostalgique et rêveuse autour de ce souvenir d’amour perdu, qui devient le 5e single britannique tiré de Post et atteint la 13e place dans les charts en novembre 1996. » Ian Gittins

Following on from the Top 10 success of "It’s oh so quiet" and "Hyperballad" Björk releases a new single from the platinum album "Post". Like its predecessors "Possibly Maybe" is a flirtatious journey through the vagaries of love : from the infatuation of a first crush to a crushing disapointment
