Bjork - Wanderlust Lyrics



I am leaving this harbour
Giving urban a farewell
Its habitants seem to keen on God
I cannot stomach their rights and wrongs

I have lost my origin
And I don't want to find it again
Whether sailing into nature's laws
And be held by ocean's paws

Wanderlust! relentlessly craving
Wanderlust! peel off the layers
Until we get to the core

Did I imagine it would be like this?
Was it something like this I wished for?
Or will I want more?

Lust for comfort
Suffocates the soul
Relentless restlessness
Liberates me (sets me free)

I feel at home
Whenever the unknown surrounds me
I receive its embrace
Aboard my floating house

Wanderlust! relentlessly craving
Wanderlust! peel off the layers
Until we get to the core

Did I imagine it would be like this?
Was it something like this I wished for?
Or will I want more?

Wanderlust! from island to island
Wanderlust! united in movement
Wonderful! I'm joined with you

Wanderlust!

Can you spot a pattern?

(relentlessly restless)

Bjork Wanderlust Comments
  1. kuaka sanderson

    i keep coming back to this song whenever i need that ultimate peace of mind

  2. Harold Palma

    Most underrated song

  3. A608 R295

    The whole album Volta is about beats and percussion. Great

  4. Karen Engelhardt

    I was listening to this song when I got the phone call about a beloved friend's suicide, and the first thing that came to my mind was, "He's free."

  5. selbst105

    is björk really so creatvie, like i sometimes feel? ...

  6. Javi osses

    I am leaving this harbor
    Giving urban a farewell
    Its habitants seem too keen on god
    I cannot stomach their rights and wrongs

    I have lost my origin
    And I don't want to find it again
    Whether sailing into nature's laws
    And be held by ocean's paws

    Wanderlust, relentlessly craving
    Wanderlust, peel off the layers
    Until we get to the core

    Did I imagine it would be like this
    Was it something like this I wished for
    Or will I want more

    Lust for comfort
    Suffocates the soul
    Relentless restlessness
    Liberates me (sets me free)

    I feel at home

    Whenever the unknown surrounds me
    I receive its embrace
    Aboard my floating house

    Wanderlust, relentlessly craving
    Wanderlust, peel off the layers…

  32. Sal Talgilmour

    reduce the stars to dust and you will not grow old
    I see Venus in a dream
    you father who knows
    the future ripens away from these darkness
    the sky is cloudless
    father let me go
    the light on the volcano (stromboli perhaps :) )shows me the exit
    in the fire of darkness I choose a new life
    takk fyrir Betulla

  33. Karo Fauske

    My view on this is that she's traveling or running away from her problems, and maybe the humanlike creature in her backpack is her guilt or homesickness, a hindrance from her moving forward. But then life decides to fuck shit up for her and she finally accepts her conflicting feeling and therefore finds where she really wanted to be.

  34. Cross

    Starts with 'Earth Intruders' Ending at the beginning of this video

  35. Vmt16

    You guys ever seen footage of that game called Death Stranding? I feel that game is gonna be this music video in long form, especially in regards to the backpack.

  36. Rodnarok

    Masterpiece

  37. erica lynn

    Divine Femme , crazy af but genius. J'adore Bjork!!

  43. WrinkleinTime42

    Weird enough I first heard this song and saw a portion of the 3D version at the New National Gallery in Berlin, it was prt of their Wanderlust exhibit on art based around travel. It’s definitely beautiful!

  44. Graziela Santos

  45. Joaquin Odriozola

    "Lust for comfort
    Suffocates the soul
    Relentless restlessness
    Liberates me; sets me free
    I feel at home
    Whenever the unknown surrounds me
    I receive its embrace
    Aboard my floating house"  Bjork

    Gotta love these lyrics.

    Autistic Socialité

    Daniel Sarmiento Blanco Lol!

  57. hattori hanzo

    Bjork, I don't know you, but I think, that you are the today's Mozart or at least Beethoven

  58. Yustine Saptarini J

    INCREDIBLE FUCK

  59. Scott Mathers

    fantastic video clip

  60. Renatavzawwrfddzpv Bispo

    I Love you essa music

  61. Joel Wagner

    This music video perfectly sums up my life so far. I was driven by my super ego most of my life, but suddenly it disappeared and I have been caught between my id and ego.

  62. Hüseyin Usta

    other hoes make basic ass break up songs that we heared and seen millions of times and then here we have björk meeting monsters and shit, dancing around huge waterfalls and not caring about a damn fuck while creating art , lol. choices.

  63. Kenny Steven Fernández Torres

    In my opinion, this is the best Björk video ever!

  64. Lost&Found

    there's this bigger-than-life-feeling the chorus gives me as if I was running against the clock... like it fully makes me realize I am alive

  65. Biff McBrad

    The sexual dance scene ultimately got a 6 and 9 from the judges.....haha

  66. Weeping Angel

    probably my favorite part starts here 6:40

  67. Angela Wallace

    My favorite video of all time. I keep coming back. True artists transcend time or era.

  68. GABRIELLA FONSECA

    amo essa música desde minha infância 😍

  69. Chris Martinez

    Few pieces of art have ever so clearly depicted the style of my dreams

  70. Claudia Semini

    It's the state of looking for "something," even though you know you're never going to find it.
    It's Björk's hunger for "something new".
    Enjoy listening to her song: "Did I imagine it would be like this? Or will I want more?"

  71. Sam Thomas

    7:19 *plays Doctor Who theme*

  72. Kléver Antonio Sarmiento Andrade

    BASURA DE MÚSICA

    Y para que venis si no te gusta

  73. T P

    If you're a deep person you'll get this video.

  74. Antonio Bolumar

    Björk for President of the World

  75. Antonio Bolumar

    Cuando comienzo el día oyendo a Björk en como si mi espíritu se eleva y se une con el universo. Björk es como la "Madre Naturaleza"

  76. WeeSmackyJim

    I got a fucking Jacob Sartorius ad before this.

  77. Hating me is conforming

    Dormammu I've come to bargain.

  78. MrPuggyWins

    wtf, is she speaking English?

  79. Angela Wallace

    Way ahead of her time... I still discover meaning all these years later. A true artist at its essence

  80. Leo H

    whaou j love this version of björk video is better

  81. Leo H

    J love her she is magic artist

  82. A. Rhea

    best video by the best artist ever to bless this century, and the one prior.

  83. Zeeena Hearts

    Can someone please explain the meaning to me?

    Angela Wallace

    Lena Rina To me, this song warns of human nature's need for material gratification, yet there is a part of us, if we let it, that yearns to be allowed to live in euphoric freedom to discover our true essence that makes us as human beings, "us", without a subconscious need for constant gratification from superficial placeholders that keep us from being who we are, i.e. the "need" to satisfy all the emotions we are fed by marketing and entertainment to "have 'this and that' to make us satisfy the voids in out lives, instead of discovering, and living, the lives we would if we were free from comparing ourselves to others. I don't want to say 'what' because everyone is different, but let's say "I want to drive this car", or have some sort of status to think we have arrived in life, instead of finding out what truly makes us tick, what drives us as individuals. If we can pull away from what we are fed media-wise, and contribute who we are to the rest of the world, we might discover a full life and pass on to our circle of influence, our contribution to life. It's hard to describe without being long-winded. Ok, let me try this: since childhood, we are told to aspire to follow a certain pattern to be successful. I guess it varies by culture, but what makes you "you"? What makes you tick, something you can't live without and say "I can do that!". It might not be the path you're on, but it's ok to follow your dreams and discover it. Me, personally, I want to leave this world, and show my children that they are free to find themselves apart from what others are bound to tell them equates to success. My goal is to sleep soundly knowing that tomorrow, I will finally work towards not just dreaming my dreams, but living them. And that's what I want for my children. Generations of discoverers, doers, finders, to make the world that much better because we are in it. Without you, Lena, I am missing something only you can show me.

    Zeeena Hearts

    This is such a wonderful interpretation. I understand it now as well. Thank you :)

    that's actually crazy to think ab

  85. Bendage

    I'm sorry, but this is one of the greatest songs ever recorded. I feel like Bjork and Bowie are 2 sides of the same coin; the masculine and feminine energies of changing and evolution. and, in doing so, being so ahead of the collective curve of other artists that have yet to catch up to them. I'm so glad and thankful we have them and the art they create.

    allenrpn

    Bendage . this song is great! but I think UNISON Is her masterpiece

    Theatre squad 2003

    Like Bowie is space and Björk is the earth

    _ Enan •

    allenrpn and Kate Bush is magical dreams

    Sal Talgilmour

    rip David Bowie :(

    ManBehindTheMirror - Collections

    I think something simular with Björk and MJ.
    They should have worked together.

  86. Pilar Herrera

    Mi canción favorita de Vulnicura, debido a los múltiples sonidos.! 💕👌 Esta y Mouth Mantra.

    Noé Delagrange

    this song is from Volta

    Noé Delagrange

    Pilar meza herrera originally yes, but she sang it during the vulnicura tour and is in Vulnicura Live, that's probably why you thought it was from vulnicura

    Ezequiel MR

    XD, No entiendo como lograste confundir esta canción de album, (También me encanta Mouth mantra)

    Constanze Amalie Von Braunschbank Albrechtsberger
