"I See Who You Are" as written by Mark Bell and Bjoerk(bjork) Gudmundsdottir....
I see
Who you are
Behind the skin
And the muscles

I see
Who you are now
And when you'll get older later
I will
See the same girl
Seem so lioness fire heart, passionate lover

And afterwards
Later this century
When you and I have become corpses

Let's celebrate now
All this flesh on our bones
Let me push you up against me tightly
And enjoy every bit of you
Love me

Let's celebrate now
All this flesh on our bones
Let me push you up against me tightly
Let's celebrate now
All this flesh on our bones
And enjoy every bit of you

I see who you are
Let me see who you are

    General CommentI'd like to think the song is purely situational and could be her daughter in one sense and a her partner. love's love in this song and the interprestation in this song is purely spiritual. listen to the message: enjoy your time here on earth and love all you can.

    General CommentIt's reported that this song is written about her daughter, Isadora- similar to My Juvenile, supposedly about her son Sindri.

    This song is so beautiful- you can hear the love in her voice. I cry everytime i hear this song- beats all her others.

    No, to all you boys out there, this is not a lesbian song- she loves her daughter. Like that solo acapella section at the end of Pagan Poetry, this is an expression of pure emotion. Bjork has bared her soul, and it's beautiful.

    General CommentShe's talking from the third person. I doubt it's about her daughter because of the whispered 'lover'. She's talking from her lover's POV.

    General CommentI don't think the word "lover" stands merely for a boyfriend or girlfriend. In this song for example, I think it's more about the passions the person she's talking about (her daughter). She knows she'll grow up to be passionate over everything she enjoys, she sees her just like a reflection of herself, because the girl was inside her. It's a deep, organic, and spiritual connection brewed by motherly love.

    General CommentI think like PeaceOfGod this is third person
    and it isn't talking about her.

    She is talking to all us.
    About the love of a man to a girl.... I think

    General Commentat first i thought this was about her daughter...
    but then i saw this:

    "let's celebrate now
    all this flesh on our bones
    let me push you
    up against me
    tightly
    and enjoy every bit of you"

    those lyrics sound very sexual to me.
