It's Just A Drop

In one teardrop, you lose your sense of self.

In one teardrop, your heart left me a key.

In one teardrop, you take that picture off the shelf.

In one teardrop, you don’t want anybody to see.

Don’t lose yourself.

Keep ahold of your key.

Leave the picture on the shelf.

Remember that I can see.

You may not know it, but I cared for you.

You may not know it, but we fought the same war.

You may not know it, but our tears kept us true.

You may not know it, but you have nothing to wait for.

Let me care for you.

Allow us to fight our war.

Enjoy the tears that keep us true.

What are you waiting for?

In just one drop, you know that nobody can see.

Imagine crying a hurricane.

I still have your picture on my shelf, that’s what you meant to me.

My nightmares are driving me insane.

You may not know it, but we fought the same war.

You were sent to a heavenly place.

I still care for you, even though I feel cold to the core.

Cold like your body, in ribbons and lace.
