Something Falling

if it's snow, it'll melt
if it's smoke, it would rise
so don't be alarmed
if you see something falling from my eyes

i'm really very well constructed
otherwise
so don't be concerned
if you see something falling from my eyes

it happens on occasion
dropping by with no invitation
you say i should have it looked at
i must be treated
but whatever i've lost
i found what i needed

the touch of your hand
might've caught me by surprise
so don't be afraid
if you see something falling from my eyes

you say you've touched me before
but i've been a little tender since the end of the war
i know everybody fights
and it's just the summer heat
but never raise your voice again
just toss me in the street
cuz your lips are worth too much
and they taste so bittersweet

they can read me bedtime stories
they can sing me lullabies
but they cannot stop
if you see something falling from my eyes

you can love me forever
that's my compromise
but don't step back
if you see something falling from my eyes
don't run for cover
if you see something falling from my eyes
if you see something falling from my eyes
