Tear Drop Lyrics - Massive Attack



Review The Song (12)


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 of matter
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

My take... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/11/10

It doesn't really matter to me what the artists meant, but instead what it means to me. This song became very important to me after having a stillbirth and then going on to have another baby. Something completely terrifying, done out of love "love, love is a verb/love is a doing word/fearless on my breath", and the type of situation where you really don't know the outcome "you're stumbling into[?]" (the last part I always hear as "you're stumbling in the dark".) I love this song.



Love it | Reviewer: Grace lovelock | 9/19/10

I love this song 4 me this song will always be about miscarages as my mother listened to it when she was going through the death of her unborn children thinking bout it the music suits perfect with the words



Again... a correction. | Reviewer: Sam | 6/10/10

There seems to be many critical responses to this song, which is fine, because songs like these can be interpreted in many ways, that's the beauty of them.

However, it's important when analysing these lyrics to consider that the vocalist, Elizabeth Fraser, wrote this song about Jeff Buckley, with whom she shared a very personal relationship. With this in mind, read the lyrics again...

You may start to rethink this abortion folderol.



its rocks | Reviewer: samantha tallon | 8/29/09

This is one of my most favourtie songs of all time. And to clarify the abortive video rumour, the trio have said it is simply about the beauty of life, its realistic, but a little off scale. jsut to put your mind at ease, just relax and enjoy the video and song about life, i personally think its a touching and beautiful combo. And the baby is just getting ready to be born near the end, and yet again the size scale isnt the best. xxx



I love it... | Reviewer: Chrisitan | 6/9/09

I feel so ignorant looking at the lyrics now... I've always thought that it says "You're totally in the Dark." at the end. It made sense to me.... Listen to it again. Listen to the last verse. You might hear it too...



another correction | Reviewer: angelo | 11/20/08

actually the song was performed by liz frasser of the Cocteau twins...although beth sounds eerily like liz. The song reminds me of a battle against oppression and the struggle to do so, but it's the perserverance of an individual that voices their emotions. As for the reccomendations of downloading some portishead, it's a must for every iPod out there. Preferably the self titled album.



Correction | Reviewer: Primal | 11/2/08

The song has less to do with abortion than you think Christina. The purpose for the baby in the film clip was simply because Beth Gibbons that sang this particular track (also lead singer of Portishead) was pregnant at the time of recording... So I suggest if you enjoyed her voice, try downloading (legally of course) some Portishead music...



Surprisingly | Reviewer: Christina | 2/2/08

I love this song for its angelic quality and ethereal atmosphere, but I was extremely surprised when I watched the music video for "Teardrops". Judging from the video, the song is written in the perspective of a fetus that is awaiting the moment it is to be aborted. In other words, this song is an ode to abortion and appears to hint at the opinion that abortion is a cruel and undeserving fate since it portrays the fetus as a strong individual who is just trying to live an innocent life with no malicious designs on anyone.

From that moment on, whenever I hear this song I think about abortions and consequently, abortions being a controversial topic, I feel slightly uncomfortable listening to it.

Nonetheless, "Teardrops" is a beautiful song with raw emotion and fully capable of affecting anyone who listens to it.



mhmm. | Reviewer: maria | 1/5/08

this is a gorgeous song; the lyrics are simple, but their effect is enough, and the music that goes with this song is perfectly matched to the mood that the lyrics give. the flow is very gentle and it presents no obvious emotions, and this can be interpreted however the listener prefers. for me, personally, it is relaxing, even though i feel that the lyrics convey some bitterness- for what, i haven't the foggiest, apologies.

like another reviewer mentioned, an instrumental version is used as the opening song on house MD, and even if it had the lyrics, the song is perfectly suited to the show. that is completely irrelevant, so sorry. xD



Amazing... | Reviewer: ashton | 10/21/07

This song is amazing. You can feel, flow with the music. Make it act as one with you. I love it, and always makes me think of this girl... :]
