Massive Attack – Teardrop lyrics

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,
I've a confession.
Fearless on my breath,
Most faithful mirror,
Fearless on my breath,
Teardrop on the fire,
Fearless on my breath.

You're stumbling a little,
You're stumbling a little.

    Like a baby who knows how precious life is and feels nothing but love for its mother from the very begining, someone is trying to give love to a world that has lost perspective, one is reaching out to extend life to thier relationship with another who is dimmed by a cold heart. And though the giver does so fearlessly and boldly, taking action in the meaning of love. The other is like a mother who's body gives life though she is not fully aware of just how powerful of a concept life itself is. And because of the lack of full understanding and unwilliness to contemplate a greater meaning, the relationship between the two souls is dying.
