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.

Water, Is my eye,
Most faithful mirror.
Fearless on my breath,
Teardrop on the fire.
Overcome fiction,
Fearless on my breath.

Most faithful mirror,
Fearless on my breath.
Teardrop on the fire,
Fearless on my breath.

Your stumbling in the dark,
Stumbling in the dark.

    If i had to guess, its about the trepidation of new love. Introspection, looking inward and finding yourself ready to accept it. This is the love you are throwing your heart, mind and soul into. And it makes you pity those without it...

    And in response to mcvanagon88

    It is actually

    "Water is my eye, most faithful mirror"

    I have the score in front of me.

    =] have a good day

    There is an incorrect lyric above

    "over come fiction,
    Feelers on my breath"

    is actually

    "Of A Confession,
    Feelers on my breath"

    Just thought you should all know =]

    I think it is about changing your self, becoming fearless because of love. A teardrop might represent the previous pain or fear of love which looks as insignificant now as a teardrop on the blazing fire (your love). The fire would swallow a teardrop just as the new found love swallows your previous pain and sadness or loneliness.
