“Björk ❀ 〈Possibly Maybe〉”

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

 possibly maybe possibly 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

 possibly maybe possibly love
mon petit vulcan French, meaning “small volcano”.
mon petit vulcan
you're eruptions and disasters — I keep calm
admiring the lava — I keep calm (caress)

 possibly maybe  possibly 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 burnt
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…
Lucy Mix version.

The eroticism in Björk's songs are different from others. Most other pop sexual songs come with conspicuous or even crude references to sexual organs or copulation. For example, My Humps from Black Eyed Peas, and My Sugar Walls by Sheena Easton. Other pop songs refer to heated mating ritual includes Rihanna's SOS, Michael Jackson's Billie Jean, Britney Spears's Baby One More Time.

Björk's songs, although are not overt in their sexual allusions, but is quite hardcore, mentioning penis, vagina, semen, ejaculation, orgasm, penis suckling, almost no other songs do. Other examples are: Pagan Poetry and Cocoon. Also, their music videos are quite daring. They are beautiful.
