Teardrop
Massive Attack Lyrics


Love, love is a verb
Love is a doing word
Feathers on my breath
Gentle impulsion
Shakes me, makes me lighter
Feathers on my breath

Teardrop on the fire
Feathers on my breath

Night, night after day
Black flowers blossom
Feathers on my breath
Black flowers blossom
Feathers on my breath

Teardrop on the fire
Feathers on my

Water is my eye
Most faithful mirror
Feathers on my breath
Teardrop on the fire
Of a confession
Feathers on my breath
Most faithful mirror
Feathers on my breath

Teardrop on the fire
Feathers on my breath

You're stumbling in the dark
You're stumbling in the dark

@Mother Maniac  @Mother Maniac  I still remember the day I heard Kurt died. Mtv Europe was awesome and I can't count the amazing songs I know by heart because of that Daily Top 5 show...all apologies is usually overlooked because of Pennyroyal Tea on that album but I totally get what you mean. Wow, so envious that you seen Moloko. I quite like Roisins solo work but I hate to say it doesn't hold up to Moloko mostly.
For some reason I figured you were American(default setting lol!) but I guess you are across the water from me in the UK? ☺
Ooh I have some music to recommend... So Trent Reznor(essentially NIN, but has a live band) had a group with his wife Mariqueen Mandiig singing called How To Destroy Angels. They have an Amazing album and two EPs out(I can provide em to ya no problem)... Here are two tracks I like and showcase their sound. I think you might enjoy ☺

My fav video and song

https://youtu.be/l-zFAio2nMA

.....sort of tied with this

https://youtu.be/Oq3pDuJeMqQ

And this is fairly trip hop

Despite trent being famous for NIN and winning Oscars and Emmys and GG for his soundtracks HTDA didn't really make a huge splash unfortunately. If you like em I cam sort all their work for ya no prob.

Love, love is a verb
Love is a doing word
Feathers on my breath
Gentle impulsion
Shakes me, makes me lighter
Feathers on my breath
Teardrop on the fire
Feathers on my breath
Night, night of matter
Black flowers blossom
Feathers on my breath
Black flowers blossom
Feathers on my breath
Teardrop on the fire
Feathers on my
Water is my eye
Most faithful mirror
Feathers on my breath
Teardrop on the fire
Of a confession
Feathers on my breath
Most faithful mirror
Feathers on my breath
Teardrop on the fire
Feathers on my breath
You're stumbling in the dark
You're stumbling in the dark

This is the last song I heard on my last date with her. Or at least this is the one I remember most vividly.
In my semi-drunken stupor and my vision clouded by the neon lights in the pub, I was catching glimpses of her from the corner of my eyes, never taking a full glance because I had taken the sight of her for granted, not knowing that that was going to be the last time I would see her as someone who belongs with me.
And when I think about the day now, as I do so every so often, I dream that I am completely looking at her, immersed in her loving stare. She smiles at me. I look around at the bar to check if I truly am back to that evening in January, 2019. "You still here?" She asks and I look back at her. She is smiling. Beaming.
I hear the exact bar the song is at. It's the same bar every time.
I know that this sweet, sweet dream will last for some more time. I nod my head at her. The song keeps playing while she takes a sip of her beer.
She keeps smiling as she puts the glass down. "Yes." I say to her as I reach for her left hand with my right. The song is almost at an end now.
I try to hold her hand, feel that warmth one last time. "Don't go. Please." I say to her, plead to her.
"You know where you can find me." She smiles one last time, showing her teeth this time.
The song is ending. The neon lights rush in and completely engulf her and cloud my vision. It's very bright, and then, darkness.
It's dark for a few moments. I feel my empty right hand. It's sweaty and the drops are racing to the fingertips. Just as suddenly, I am back in my current reality.
There's a hint of bitterness at the back of my tongue and a smartening feeling in my eyes as I begin to tear up. I blink to hold the tears back. This is my secret dream. My own time machine, to go back to one of the most memorable days of my life.
I shouldn't call this dream my time machine. Rather, the song is. And the best part is, this song will last till the day I die, and last some more.
And I will always go back to a woman I truly loved, even though ephemerally. And just for that opportunity, and that tiny chance to relive that precious memory, I am thankful.

Me too has never made more sense

I know it from when the music video was released a week or two before the album/single was released. Back when music video channels were a thing on TV. The video was as captivating as the music, and at the time (late 90's) I was mostly listening to metal.

I first heard this Song from a club music compilation (Eleze / Fonzerelli remix). It was played in AHS, with captions on, I discovered it was originally from this band.

Do yourself a favor and check out the whole album. Mezzanine by Massive Attack. Especially the songs 'Risingson' and 'Black Milk'.
