"Teardrops"

I’ve fallen in love with the haunting, soulful lyrics and pulsing, pounding “heartbeat” rhythm of Massive Attack’s song “Teardrop.” I can see why they picked it as the theme song for “House.” :-) Original lyrics at: http://www.lyricsonnet.com/mylyrics.php?id=64999&artist=MASSIVE%20ATTACK This tune can be found on their Mezzanine album and is definitely worth a listen. :-)

“Teardrops”

 

Love, love isn’t a word

House has often said or heard

Since “muscle death”

Killed something inside him

But his eyes get much brighter

When he’s fearlessly fighting Death

 

Nothing stops desire

Not even praying for death

 

He tells himself nothing matters

But passion blossoms

And his heart still beats within his chest

When he solves a problem

He cheats his enemy, Death

 

Tears don’t stop desire

He still has something left

 

Those aren’t teardrops in his eyes…

By the time you draw nearer

He’ll have hidden them in a jest

Don’t expect a confession

He hasn’t forgiven God, yet

But he’s a faithful servant

Battling against Death

 

And he can’t stop human desires

That steal away his breath

 

He’s just stumbling a little

Finding his way back to love again
