Björk - Undo
from the album Vespertine

~~~


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
to enjoy
it’s not meant to be a strife
it’s not meant to be a struggle uphill

it’s warmer now : l e a n into it
unfold in a generous way
surrender
s u r r e n d e r
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 : if you’re bleeding
undo : if you’re sweating
undo : if you’re crying

Björk. I really admire her as an artist, the first time I was introduced to her music I fell in love instantly. I think Vespertine is my favourite era. I would love to do an arrangement of one of her songs but I can never decide which one. Should stop overthinking.

The cover for all of Björk’s eight main albums.

They all share the same basic idea: a shot of Björk dressed as a character that represents the attitude and intention behind the album. So it’s nice to see them all together.
