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

[Verse 1]
Love, love is a verb
Love is a doing word
Fearless on my breath
Gentle impulsion
Shakes me, makes me lighter
Fearless on my breath

[Chorus]
Teardrop on the fire
Fearless on my breath

[Verse 2]
Nine night of matter
Black flowers blossom
Fearless on my breath
Black flowers blossom
Fearless on my breath

[Chorus]
Teardrop on the fire
Fearless on my...

[Verse 3]
Water is my eye
Most faithful mirror
Fearless on my breath
Teardrop on the fire
Of a confession
Fearless on my breath
Most faithful mirror
Fearless on my breath

[Chorus]
Teardrop on the fire
Fearless on my breath

[Outro]
You're stumbling in the dark (As in love falling apart)
You're stumbling in the dark (As in love falling apart)

I saw you in an awkward show where I was being dragged around by an old state business plan that screwdrivers up everyones lives.

I played your CDs for years. I don't remember where I picked it up. Blockbuster video I believe. In Tulare county, Visalia (part and parcel with Kentucky s Visalia and hardly my kind. We don't mix here. It was never a kind upbringing.

What happened in Seattle other than that I was being shoved around as someone's own personal geebus?

I don't hear words because it's myth that they're predictable in sophisticated society. I learned that fairly recently in my life. I grew up with a mostly deaf older sibling. We don't bare synonyms down from tone.

I love your sounds. Magnificent. Were my ears the wrong kind for your songs?

Keep in mind I've some hair to my name so that inevitably brings ERR, ERA, Heirs and A and what goes atop us.

How come the California radio didbt bring these sounds? I love something off the usual and isn't angry title guise.

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.

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

Teardrop on the fire
Fearless on my breath

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

Teardrop on the fire
Fearless on my

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

Teardrop on the fire
Fearless on my breath

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