I don't know how I missed hearing this song before but found it this week while going through Bjork videos. I think it might be one of the most beautiful songs ever recorded. Be patient the video gets more exciting.

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

My favorite Björk song is "I've Seen It All" It's sad and touching at the same time.

If you haven's seen the movie that it's from (Dancer in the Dark) and you like Björk, I'd recommend it. There are very few movies that I both hate and love as much as that one. It's about a mother who is slowly going blind from a genetic condition. Her sight can be saved by surgery but she doesn't have the money to pay for it. She has a son with the same condition and is saving every penny for him to have the surgery. Then, her landlord takes advantage of her and things turn ugly. Be forewarned, though, its not a Hollywood ending.

Anyhow, here are the lyrics for the song:

Hi Mama D! Hope your mom is doing ok. Just wanted to say that I love the song and the lyrics but, the vid creeps me out. Just me! But, I really LOVE the song. I've never listened to Bjork before so thanks!
