Album: Biophilia (2011)
  • When your eyes
    Pause on the ball
    That hangs on the third branch
    From the star
    You remember why it is dark
    And why it gets light again

    The earth like the hearts
    Slopes in its seat
    And like that it travels
    Along an elliptical path
    Drawn into the darkness

    An unpolished pearl
    In the sky black in palm of hand
    Flickering sun flame

    And then you remember
    That you yourself
    You are a light bearer, a light bearer
    Receiving radiance from others
    Flickering sun flame
    Unpolished earth in the palm of hand Writer/s: Bj�rk Gudmundsdottir, Sigurjon Sigurdsson
