Beautiful Tear

there’s another one gone
another sad song
another great acre of rage
it’s a mystery tree
why’d this happen to me
a tragedy played on a musical stage

the innocents dance
take their love if by chance
with a glance at eternity’s treasure
planting a seed
with no warning or heed
it’s a weight that’s too heavy to measure

and all of the world’s water
could never rain such a beautiful tear
I held you in my arms last night
and this morning you’re no longer here

oh I stood in the rain
and I whispered your name
and I almost thought that you answered
but it was only a feeling
my dizzy head reeling
I never was much of a dancer

last time I saw you
you didn’t see me
your terminal eyes were unfocussed
like a shadow of smoke
when the bubble was broke
you’ve gone to the plague of the locusts

and all of the world’s water
could never rain such a beautiful tear
I held you in my arms last night
and this morning you’re no longer here
