Solstice Lyrics

by Björk

when your eyes
pause on the ball
that hangs on the third branch from the star
you remember why it is dark and why it gets light again

the earth (like the heart) slopes in its seat
and like that it travels along an elliptical path
drawn into the darkness

an unpolished pearl in sky-black palm of hands
flickering sun-flame

you remember
that you are yourself a light-bearer
who receives her radicance from others
