Family

Album: Vulnicura (2015)
  • Is there a place
    Where I can pay respects
    For the death of my family?
    Show some respect

    Between the three of us
    There is the mother and the child
    Then there is the father and the child
    But no man and a woman
    No triangle of love

    So where do I go to make an offering?
    I fall on my knees
    Lay my flowers
    Light the candles

    So where do I go to make offering
    To mourn our miraculous triangle
    Father, mother, child?

    How will I sing us out of this sorrow
    Build a safe bridge for the child out of this danger

    I raise a monument of love
    There is a swarm of sound
    Around our heads
    And we can hear it
    And we can get healed by it
    It will relieve from the pain
    It will make us all part of
    This universe of solutions
    This place of salvations
    This location of solutions Writer/s: Björk Gudmundsdottir, Alejandro Ghersi
