Massive Attack - Teardrop

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.

"Teardrop" is the second single from Massive Attack's third studio album, Mezzanine. Vocals are performed by Elizabeth Fraser, former lead singer of Cocteau Twins, who also wrote the lyrics. A harpsichord-driven track, "Teardrop" was originally set to feature vocals from Madonna, whom Massive Attack turned down in favour of Fraser.
