"Enjoy" as written by Bjork Gudmundsdottir and Adrian Nicholas Matthew Thaws....
I wish I want to stay here
I wish this be enough
I wish I only love you
I wish simplicity

Look at the speed out there
It magnetizes me to it
And I have no fear
I'm only into this to

Enjoy
Enjoy
Enjoy
Enjoy

I wish I'd only look
And didn't have to touch
I wish I'd only smell this
And didn't have to taste

How can I ignore
This is sex without touching
I'm going to explore
I'm only into this to

Enjoy
Enjoy
Enjoy
Enjoy

    Song MeaningEveryone seems to presume that this song is about a man, or sex. But this is not the case, and quite frankly, unsatisfyingly simplistic. The entire album Post was, conceptually, a collection of musical "letters" to different individuals special to her when she moved from Iceland for the first time, to London; hence the name Post. "Army of Me" was to her little brother; "Cover Me" to fellow producer Neelee Hooper; "Possibly Maybe" to ex-lover Stephane Sedounai; "Headphones" to tape-maker Graham Massey; and "I Miss You" to some future, unknown lover.

    "Enjoy" is another communique, with an exception: this letter is addressed to a place. London. London is a fast-paced, marvelously diverse metropolis with so much to explore, so much pleasure to offer. Certainly quite different from Iceland. She's excited about it and she can no longer simply visit. She can no longer watch the action from afar in Iceland; it's not that simple to her. She has to touch it with her own hands; she must immerse herself in the experience. It's so intense, it's like "sex without touching", a key lyric that rules out a man as her subject. It's almost an impulse, an instinct that she knows she must follow. It's a sacrifice; she's leaving her family behind. But she's only in this to enjoy! She'll be back. And eventually she did return to Iceland.

    General CommentLUST FOR LIFE!

    Life is electric and sometimes she wishes it was easier, and she didn't have to investigate but the entralling things are exciting.

    She gets pleasure from the sights and delves in.

    General Commentvouyerism. nothing more, nothing less. this a magnificent song about it, i really like the way she express the passion and the frustration of it. its simpler, is more enjoyable just watch, just hear, just smell, just feel without compromise, just enjoy... of course is risky, because you could feel tempted to get involved in a very deep situation. its about human nature, we are all tempted to do it, we all do it, not in the same level, but we do it, cause we like to enjoy...

    General Commentit reminds me of this awful, loveless "relationship" i had with this guy who was dating this girl i knew. it makes me sick just thinking about it, and this song is so fitting.

    General Commentit can go two ways- it can either be that the woman or in this case bjork wants it all and is only into this to enjoy OR that the other person is into it to enjoy and does not want anything to do with strings attatched or getting to know the person---- oh also it could go like she is recognizing that sometimes you just want to be in something for yourself- one night stands- a night out dancing- nothing too extreme- just let go and be yourself and be crazy sometimes not necessarily that you're a bad person but that you just want to have fun at given times

    General Commentwell, I don't see this as a selfishness...to me, it's about this person who is so tempting, she can't resist for very long...she tries staying away, but it attracts her like nothing else... and finally she just gives up the fight and admits that she desires the person, and that she'll let herself enjoy...

    very sexy, and one of my favorites of hers as well. i love the build-up and near-frustration-like quality throughout. :q
