Scandinavian queen

Now playing: "Bachelorette" by Bjork.

It's one of my all-time favorite Bjork songs.

Beautifully written.Surprisingly melancholic and very poetic in an almost disturbing way.Kick-ass music coordination.Enough to leave me to my own deep, pensive thoughts.
She may be the epitome of a Scandinavian freak, but a true music genius nonetheless. I suppose it takes a freak to make one FREAKing good music,ey? (and I bet Moby would be more than willing to attest to that.Hehe) =)

Bjork: "Bachelorette"

I'm a fountain of blood
In the shape of a girl
You're the bird on the brim
Hypnotised by the whirl

Drink me, make me feel real
Wet your beak in the stream
Game we're playing is life
Love is a two way dream

I'm a path of cinders
Burning under your feet
You're the one who walks me
I'm your one way street

I'm a whisper in water
Secret for you to hear
You are the one who grows distant
When I beckon you near

I'm a tree that grows hearts
One for each that you take
You're the intruder hand
I'm the branch that you break

Yeah I know her =) I like her song 'Fidelity' but she sounds too much like Feist sometimes (or maybe it's the other way round,hehe)

Fidelity is good, amongst many other of her songs!
