Possibly Maybe (1995), a song by Björk, with lyrical eroticism, as is many of Björk's songs.
The video is directed by Stéphane Sednaoui.
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 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…
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.
