Isobel" is a song recorded by Icelandic singer Björk for her third studio album, Post. Written by Sjón based on a story by Björk, the lyrics of "Isobel" tell the story of the title character, who is magically born in a forest and sends a message of instinct amongst the logic thinking of the people of the city. The story of Isobel has been explored in "Human Behaviour" and "Bachelorette", forming a trilogy
Produced by Nellee Hooper & Björk. In a forest pitch-dark Glowed the tiniest spark It burst into a flame Like me, like me. My name Isobel Married to myself My love Isobel Living by herself. In a heart full of dust Lives a creature called lust It surprises and scares Like me, like me. When she does it, she means to Moth delivers her message Unexplained on your collar Crawling in silence, a simple excuse
Isobel (оригинал Björk). Изабель (перевод Lisbet). In a forrest pitch-dark. Меня зовут Изабель, Married to myself. Я замужем за самой собой. Моя возлюбленная Изабель, Living by herself.
