  • In a forest pitch dark
    Glowed the tiniest spark
    It burst into flame
    Like me
    Like me

    My name Isobel
    Married to myself
    My love Isobel
    Living by herself

    In a heart full of dust
    Lives a creature called lust
    It surprises and scares
    Like me
    Like me

    My name Isobel
    Married to myself
    My love Isobel
    Living by herself

    When she does it she means to
    Moth delivers her message
    Unexplained on your collar
    Crawling in silence
    A simple excuse

    Nana na na na, Nana na na na
    Nana na na na, Nana na na na

    In a tower of steel
    Nature forges a deal
    To raise wonderful hell
    Like me
    Like me

    My name Isobel
    Married to myself
    My love Isobel
    Living by herself

    When she does it she means to
    Moth delivers her message
    Unexplained on your collar
    Crawling in silence
    A simple excuse

    Nana na na na, Nana na na na
    Nana na na na, Nana na na na
    Nana na na na, Nana na na na
    Nana na na na, Nana na na na Writer/s: NELLEE HOOPER, BJORK GUDMUNDSDOTTIR, MARIUS DE VRIES, SIGURJON SIGURDSSON
