This song is by Björk and appears on the album Medúlla (2004).

Original video
(E.E. Cummings Poem - 'It May Not Always Be So')

It may not always be so
And I say that if your lips
Which I have loved
Should touch another's
And your dear strong fingers clutch her heart
As mine in time not far away

If on another's face your sweet hair lay
In such a silence as I know
Or such great writhing words as, uttering overmuch
Stand helplessly before the spirit at bay

If this should be, I say if this should be
You of my heart, send me a little word
That I may go unto her, and take her hands saying
Accept all happiness from me
Then I shall turn my face
And hear one bird sing terribly afar in the lost lands
