Björk: Undo Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Another post-breakup song, of course. Here the narrator could be a woman from a conservative family, who had to choose between her boyfriend (a couple who met at the same university, for example) and her lover (she cheated on her boyfriend and he kinda knows the fact), and chose the latter because a marriage had been arranged between them (by either her parents or her lover's).
In the first verse, the boyfriend, who has different views from hers, would like to cancel the wedding but she doesn't, not regretting and not suffering from her decision of marrying a strange guy. So her boyfriend has no other choice than give her up.
In the second verse, it is the last night (after sex or after party, no mention) with her soon-to-be ex-boyfriend : begging him to remove his clothes and both sharing their last passionate kiss.
In the third verse, the narrator is back into her moon, about to marry her lover but still being kind with her now-former boyfriend.
In the last verse, still from her "moon", she looks down and remembers her former boyfriend during their last night. Meanwhile, he has somewhat fallen asleep. In his dream, he sees his former girlfriend's gaze in a glass statue but is afraid to touch it, fearing it would shatter in front of him... His dream appears as harp notes at the end of the song. At the final note, the boy wakes up either sweating or crying, probably remembering her ex's words (so last verse), convinced that their relationship has gone to an end.
