Bachelorette Lyrics

Artist: Bjork
Album: Homogenic

I'm a fountain of blood
In the shape of a girl
You're the bird on the brim
Hypnotised by the Whirl

Drink me, make me feel real
Wet your beak in the stream
Game we're playing is life
Love is a two way dream

Leave me now, return tonight
Tide will show you the way
If you forget my name
You will go astray
Like a killer whale
Trapped in a bay

I'm a path of cinders
Burning under your feet
You're the one who walks me
I'm your one way street

I'm a whisper in water
Secret for you to hear
You are the one who grows distant
When I beckon you near

Leave me now, return tonight
The tide will show you the way
If you forget my name
You will go astray
Like a killer whale
Trapped in a bay

I'm a tree that grows hearts
One for each that you take
You're the intruder hand
I'm the branch that you break
** Icelandic part **

Not only it's amazing, but the music video for this song is really an impressive one. Check it out at youtube if you appreciate the lyrics as much as me do.
by Mikkun on 11/21/2008 7:52am
This song is so beautiful. The lyrics are so touching and true. And the melody and rythm.. Bjrk is a genious. I truly love ans adore her music. Amazing.
by frank on 11/29/2008 9:40am
awful tune...
how can you endorse this rubbish, tuneless song where you can't understand the meaningless dribble bjork 'sings'?
by resist-this on 12/25/2008 3:37am
i reckon this sounds like a bond song. Its got a great big band feel to it, like orchestral music or something. HAHA frank doesnt understand it but obviously the rest of us do!!! smarten up frank!
by Christos on 12/27/2008 5:39pm
Probably one of the best songs written the past century

You keep me falling in love again and again... Your Musik is... Musica para mis oidos.
by Wolf on 6/22/2009 8:21am
Get a brain Frank! What good song is understandable anyway. They are poems, open to various interpretations. I guess the metaphors through him off.
by ArcadiaX on 9/28/2009 9:45am
Frank, community college: English Literature 101: The Poems.. Get a clue!
by mimi on 10/4/2009 9:12pm

Hi guys, you were numerous wondering about the meaning of this pure artwork :3 Well I don't understand all the lyrics, but I completed what I know with some research, and it seems that it can be understood in various ways: A burning Love progressively fainting, really basic though; Then it might show the fact that an artist is represented by what he does and if it turns bad, the person himself is rejected as well as his work; it can also denounce, in my view, the struggle of the artist who is fighting to keep his audience, but who has to be careful about what he says, that's to say he has to be transparent. I made the link with the music video, with the book's metaphor, and the man who perhaps can represent what she (Bjork) fears in this story. Still there are many meanings associated to this song haha :3 You might have yours as well! And Frank is obviously Missing some artistic knowledge, that's why he can't bear this piece of art. Last thing: sorry for English mistakes!
by Mark on 1/25/2024 10:26am
Bjork's music is mostly set to poetry. It doesn't always flow in English and she's prone to gibberish when gibberish serves the tune best. Bachelorette expresses our seemingly frail, overwhelmed Human spirit standing in a conversation - challenging and honoring - and overcoming the forces of "Life"!
