"Where Is the Line" as written by and Bjork Gudmundsdottir....
Where is the line with you
Where is the line with you
Where is the line with you
Where is the line with you

My purse wide open
You ask again
I see you trying to
Cash into accounts everywhere

Where is the line with you
Where is the line with you
Where is the line with you
Where is the line with you

I want to be flexible
I want to go out
Of my way for you
But enough is enough

Where is the line with you
Where is the line with you
Where is the line with you
Where is the line with you

I want to be elastic
I want to go
Out of my way for you
I want to help you

Where is the line with you
Where is the line with you
Where is the line with you
Where is the line with you

I want to have
Capacity over you
And be elastic
To be elastic, elastic

Where is the line with you
Where is the line with you

Where is the line with you
Where is the line with you
Where is the line with you
Where is the line with you

I'm elastic for you

Where is the line with you
Where is the line with you
Where is the line with you

    General CommentI think that this is about someone who tries and tries to go out of their way to help someone but just gets fed up.

    General CommentI think this song is about giving of yourself and the other person on the recieving end is never satisfied. And is always wanting more from you. Or possibly they just don't give back. So, how far is one willing to bend over backwards until they have had enough.

    General CommentI heard this was a song about giving someone in your family that has screwed you over a second chance.

    Personally, I feel it's about being fed up with someone but still willing to go out of your way for them.

    General Comment"My purse wide open
    you ask again
    I see the crime and cash into
    Accounts
    Everywhere"

    I'm wondering if the use of the word "crime" gives the song a more literal meaning, like she is actively engaged in some kind of wrong-doing, doesn't want to, but is still pressured?

    General CommentYeah, I see it more as something being done that violates the singer's morals, or imposes on their principles, like doing a crime or some such.

    General CommentThe song is great, but the video...not so much.
    In fact, it's creepy and confusing.

    General CommentSomewhere in the song is sounds like someone is trying to turn on a lawnmower. Know what I mean? That part's fucing dope.
