"Undo" as written by Bjork Gudmundsdottir and Thomas Knak....
It's not meant to be a strife
It's not meant to be a struggle uphill

It's not meant to be a strife
It's not meant to be a struggle uphill

You're trying too hard
Surrender
Give yourself in
You're trying too hard
You're trying too hard

It's not meant to be a strife
It's not meant to be a struggle uphill
Sweetly
It's not meant to be a strife
To enjoy
It's not meant to be a struggle uphill

It's warmer now lean into it
Unfold in a generous way
Surrender
Surrender
Undo
Undo

It's not meant to be a strife
It's not meant to be a struggle uphill

I'm praying
To be
In a generous mode
The kindness kind
The kindness kind
To share me
Quietly ecstatic

It's not meant to be a strife
It's not meant to be a struggle uphill

Undo
Undo if you're bleeding
Undo if you're sweating
Undo if you're crying

Undo
Undo

    General CommentPretty much the same message as "It's Not Up to You." It's about how sometimes you need to just go with the flow.

    General CommentI think its about just getting yourself out of something bad. Youre not supposed to be in that bad place, and you should do your best to get the hell out. Love it.

    General CommentI think the message of this song is to “undo” our image or conception of the world – that the world, living in the world, isn’t supposed to be “a struggle up hill” - only the projects we build in our mind around it (the world) sometimes do make it uphill.

    General CommentThis song is about the healing process. Sometimes we try very hard and end up failing, and hurt ourselves in the process. She's saying not to try so hard, but to enjoy now and let positive feelings flow freely. It's a very powerful song, I listen to it whenever I need to calm down or to regain hope.

    General CommentIt's beautiful. What does it mean to you? Go with this. It's just so beautiful. I think the meaning is pretty clear but i rarely pick her songs apart. I just feel.

    General CommentIt can be about first time sex.

    It can also be about inner struggles regarding personal identity and the masks we wear in society in order to be accepted. She encourages us to get rid of these masks and 'undo' all our learned behaviors that don't reflect our true feelings, but reflect what we think society deems an acceptable reaction to certain events/things (and thus we adopt them). In short: for people with low self-esteem, who step over their own true identity just to be accepted by others.

    Just BE yourself.
