"My Juvenile" as written by and Bjork Gudmundsdottir....
Down the corridor
I send warmth
I send warmth

Down the staircase
I send warmth
I send warmth

Thank you for, again
To get to be able
To send warmth
To send warmth

Perhaps I set you too free
Too fast
Too young

But the intentions were pure
But the intentions were pure

My juvenile
My juvenile
My juvenile
I truly say
You are my biggest love

I clumsily try to free you from me
One last embrace
To tie a sacred ribbon

This is an offer to better the last let go
This is an offer to better the last let go
This is an offer to better the last let go

The intentions were pure

My juvenile
My juvenile
My juvenile
My juvenile
My juvenile
My juvenile

    General CommentThis is bigger than you said. She maybe is talking with her own youth, or her youth spirit, and the conflict of let it back at past of the years.

    General CommentI'm going to speculate that this song could be about the relationship between bjork and her son. I'm not a psychologist and I don't know anything about bjork or her son, but it sounds as though she encouraged him to be more independent and now that she's getting older she wants to draw him closer and re-establish a kind of love that existed once before.

    Does anyone have a different feeling?

    General CommentBas come back from her new home in New York City to drop off her son Sindri, 15, who chose to go to high school in Reykjavik and live with his father Thor Jonsson, who used to play with Bjork in their '80s punk band, the Sugarcubes.
    She is sad that Sindri is leaving her for the first time, but she tries to act tough. "At that age, you need to be with your mates," she says. She likes the idea that her son will grow up Icelandic, but she is leaving a part of herself behind here.

    General CommentYep, I'm agreeing with Margie. I mean, in the booklet they even said that Antony was featured in this song as "the conscience." Bjork is quite the thinker.

    General Commentdefinitely. The song makes more sense if she's talking to her own youth.

    General CommentI love this song
    I algo think it's about Björk's own youth or maybe about some lover from the past ..
    Anyway, it's beautiful...but makes me kind of sad

    General CommentAs the motherly speaker is about to send off her son into adulthood, she wonders if she gave him too much freedom when he was younger and yet possessively wants to hug him one last time to "free" him from her.
