Listen --- listen --- listen

Do you hear?

Can the sound of water dripping

Flow into an ear

And become rhythmic heartbeats

Or just another kind of tear?

Listen, listen, listen,

Do you hear?

 

Look --- look --- look

But seldom see

Perception is the god

With it's own divinity.

Did they find that dream today

That seemed to float away.

Was it in the form of water drops

Or just a misty spray?

 

Speak of love that finally blossomed

And the thrills of yesterday.

Speak of tragic situations

That were somehow painted gray

And remember sleepless nights

That were conjured from one fear

Becoming perpetual heartbeats

Like the echo of a tear.
