"Violently Happy" as written by Bjork Gudmundsdottir and Nellee Hooper....
Since I met you
This small town hasn't got room
For my big feelings

Violently happy
Cause I love you

Violently happy
But you´re not here

Violently happy
Come calm me down
Before I get into trouble

I tip-toe down to the shore
Stand by the ocean
Make it roar at me
And I roar back

Violently happy
Cause I love you

Violently happy
But you´re not here

Violently happy
Overemotional

Violently happy
I'll get into trouble
Real soon
If you don't get here
Baby

Violently happy
Cause I love you

Violently happy
I'm aiming too high

Violently happy
It will get me into trouble
Violently happy
I'm driving my car
Too fast
With ecstatic music on

Violently happy
I'm getting too drunk

Violently happy
I'm daring people
To jump off roofs with me

Only you
Can clam me down
I'm aiming too high

Soothe me

    General CommentViolently Happy is a great synonym for insanity which is very prevalent in the music video and, to a lesser extent, in the lyrics but shows up big in the rhythm of the song.

    General CommentI think it's about being so euforic in love, that you don't notice the world around you. So you act irresponsibly, and hurt people accidently.

    General Commentviolently happy. A dubious feeling. An awkward one. Just the way i felt when i was starting to move in the direction of violental death of my violentally happy long-distance relationship. Was so freaking happy to feel love(d) but knew how it'd end before if begun, - he wasn't there and i.e. getting into trouble was inevitable. Didn't jump off roofs but wicked state of my mind & heart didn't suggest UNviolental existence. Not to mention exciting sex haha People! Long-distance romance never works as well as violental happiness.

    General CommentThe speaker is so happy because she is madly in love with her lover. But because he is absent, she begs him to come back lest she do crazy things.
