Possibly Maybe by Bjork

Xah Lee, 2010-06-27

Possibly Maybe, a song by Bjork, with lyrical eroticism, as many of Bjork's songs.

your flirt
it finds me out
teases the crack in me
smittens me with hope

 possibly maybe possibly love

as much as I definitely enjoy solitude
I wouldn't mind perhaps
spending little time with you
sometimes, sometimes

 possibly maybe probably love

uncertainty excites me - baby!
who knows what's going to happen?
lottery or car crash - or you'll join a cult

 possibly maybe possibly love
「• Mon petit vulcan = French, meaning “small volcano”.」
mon petit vulcan
you're eruptions and disasters - I keep calm
admiring the lava - I keep calm (caress)

 possibly maybe  possibly love

electric shocks? I love them!
with you  - dozen a day
but after a while I wonder
where's that love you promised me? where is it?

 possibly maybe  probably love

how can you offer me love like that?
my heart's burnt
how can you offer me love like that?
I'm exhausted - leave me alone!

 possibly maybe  probably love

since we broke up - I'm using lipstick again
I'll suck my tongue - in remembrance of you...

Lucy Mix version.

The eroticism in Bjork's songs are different from the other modern songs, that comes with conspicuous, or even crude, references to sexual organs or copulation. For example, My Humps from Black Eyed Peas, and My Sugar Walls by Sheena Easton, reference to tits, ass, pussy, in a crude way. Other pop songs refer to heated mating ritual includes SOS by Rihanna, Michael Jackson's Billie Jean, Britney Spears's Baby One More Time.

Note the differences. Bjork's songs, although are not overt in their sexual references, but is quite hardcore in meaning, mentioning penis, vagina, semen, ejaculation, orgasm, penis sucking, almost no other songs do. Other examples are: Pagan Poetry and Cocoon. Also, their music videos are quite daring. They are beautiful.
