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

Hell never return it

So when you come back
Well have to make new love

Hell never return it

When you come back
Well have to make new love

    There are two people in love, but when they separate for awhile, the love they feel for each other starts to unravel, dissapear, and they become estranged due to the seperation. This has actually happened to me before. If you love someone, but lose contact with them for awhile, you become weird strangers. So i think the devil is just the force that takes the love, that is where the love dissapears to. And the devil in my case would be, human nature, how you react to someone you used to know but havent seen or spoke to in awhile. It's always awkward. Anyway, that love will never be returned, it's gone, lost to time, so you have to make new love.
