Unravel

video

While you are away
My heart comes undone
Slowly unravels
In a ball of yarn
The devil collects it
With a grin
Our love
In a ball of yarn

He'll never return it

So when you come back
We'll have to make new love

He'll never return it

When you come back
We'll have to make new love

While you are away
My heart comes undone
Slowly unravels
In a ball of yarn
The devil collects it
With a grin
Our love, our love, 
In a ball of yarn

He'll never return it

When you come back
We'll have to make new love

He'll never return it

When you come back
We'll have to make new love

He'll never return it

When you come back
We'll have to make new love

A few days ago, I went for dinner with my family at Wagamama Restaurant in St.Albans.
My mother had some jasmine tea and I thought, that it was quite interesting how the flower slowly started to unravel, so I decided to film it. It was so relaxing and pleasing to the eye and soul, I felt like I had found inner peace. I instantly thought of Bjork's song ''Unravel'', which is the music I used in the video. 
The meaning of the song is about the impatience of seeing your loved one again, when your loved one is away, you feel like you are not in love anymore, ''The devil collects it''. In reality, however, you still are. Your loved one will come back and the love will be even stronger than before. Hence the line, ''When you come back, we'll have to make new love''. Sometimes, love falls apart, and it slips away from how you expected it to be. If neither of the two give up and try again, the love can be stronger than ''a ball of yarn''. Unwilling to be broken or stolen from anyone or anything. 
I felt that the music connects to the video because a flower is fragile, just as love is. Love is fragile and can be broken or fixed very easily.
