Bjork – Black Lake lyrics
[Verse 1]
Our love was my womb but our bond has broken
And my shield is gone, my protection is taken
I am 1 wound in my pulsatin' body
Sufferin' being

[Verse 2]
My heart is enormous, lake black with potion
I am blind, drownin' in this ocean

[Verse 3]
My soul torn apart, and my spirit is broken
Into far over the mist, over...

[Verse 4]
True fear may limits last
And emotions, I am bored of your
Apocalyptic obsessions
Did I love you too much?
Devotion and me broken
So I repent, destroyed
(I must, I...)

[Verse 4]
I did it for love
I honored my feelings
You betrayed your own heart
Corrupted that organ

[Verse 5]
Family was always
Our own sacred, mutual mission which
Which you abandoned

[Verse 6]
You have nothing to give
Your heart is hollow
I'm drowned in sorrow
We hold inside up and down
Lake darkness eternity and

[Verse 7]
I am all-glowing shining rocket
Returning home as I enter
The atmosphere, I burn off
Layer by layer
