Lyrics (By Google Search)

So broken,
In pieces,
My heart is so broken,
I’m puzzling.
Here I go
Trying to run ahead of that,
Heart break train,
It will never catch up with me.
I’m so broken,
So broken,
Yeah, ha-ee, ha-ee, ha-mmm,
I’m trying to land,
This aeroplane of ours gracefully,
But it seems just destined to crash,
I’m so broken,
My heart is so broken,
Yeah, ha-ee, ha-ee, ha-mmm,
How can, how can,
And I sense
All continuity
Has vanished away
At one step at a time now baby, baby
I’m so broken
I’m-m-m-mmm…so broken
Yeah, ha-ee, ha-ee, ha-mmm
I’m so
Completely unhealable, baby
I’m so broken
Yeah, ha-ee, ha-ee, ha-mmm

My Thoughts

This song was a surprise compared to the other songs on this album, and compared to the few other songs by her that I have heard so far.

I like the instrumentals and the energy and soul that she puts into the singing, and it is a bilingual song, which is rare.

The end,

Hello The Fattest Leech,

I am glad, thank you for sharing that, and so far I have been impressed with her live performances; I am late to listening to some of Björk’s music, it was something that my female coworker JB said that made me start trying to listen to some of Björk’s music, and I am glad that I did so far.

So far I have only listened to her album Homogenic, what are your favorite albums and/or songs by her?

Thank you for commenting,
-John Jr
