Bjork – New World tab

   / Björk       /  I think the song is about Selma imagining herself in heaven.
  / New World   /  Her previously new world USA didn't quite live up to her expec-
 / Selmasongs  /  tations, so she now tries her luck in the next world. It could
/_____________/  actually also be about the new life she has granted her son.

Time: 4 / 4
Key: Eb major (3 flats)
(it was quite hard to find any chords that sounded anything like the symphony
 orchestra on the record, but this is my best solution to get the real sound)
