mutual core lyrics – bjork

“mutual core”

i shuffle around the tectonic plates in my chest.

you know i gave it all,
try to match our continents
to change seasonal shift,
to form a mutual core.

as fast as your fingernail grows,
the atlantic ridge drifts
to counteract distance.

you know i gave it all,
can you hear the effort of the magnetic strife?
shuffling of columns
to form a mutual core.

this eruption undoes stagnation.
you didn’t know i had it in me,
withheld your love, an unspent capsule.
i didn’t know you had it in you,
you hid the key to our continuity.
i didn’t know you had it in you.
this eruption undoes stagnation.
you didn’t know, you didn’t know.

what you resist persists, nuance makes heat
to counteract distance
i know you gave it all,
offered me harmony if things were done your way.
my eurasian plate subsumed,
forming a mutual core

this eruption undoes stagnation.
you didn’t know i had it in me,
withheld your love, an unspent capsule.
i didn’t know you had it in you.
this eruption undoes stagnation
you didn’t know i had it in me
this eruption undoes stagnation
you didn’t know, you didn’t know.
