Mutual Core Lyrics

by Björk

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
