Björk - “Bachelorette”

By Xah Lee. Date: . Last updated: .

Bachelorette by Björk, is a majestic, fear imposing love song.

The music video of this song, unwinds a dark march towards despair. It cries recursion, as unending repetition of a tragedy.

Lyrics by Sjón.

I'm a fountain of blood,
in the shape of a girl.
you're bird on the brim,
hypnotized by the whirl.

Drink me — make me feel real,
wet your beak in the stream.
the game we're playing is life,
love's a two way dream.
Leave me now — return tonight,
tide will show you the way.
if you forget my name,
you will go astray,
like a killer whale trapped in a bay.
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,
a secret for you to hear.
you're 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 intruders hand,
I'm the branch that you break.
