Seven Years a Tear Drop

All the lives I have led they have led me to this
I abandoned the plan at the age of nineteen
And acted on impulse to contract new skin
In the land of my birth I’m a long way from home

So it’s drain your glasses dry
Place faith into the night
To deliver silver visions of an alphabet of light
To me she was an instant
To her I was eternity
Seven years a tear drop and seven years the sea

Inebriated children of the Mediterranean
They knew nothing of curses they knew nothing of cures
So I posted a hex on a dress that she wore
But couldn’t cure sadness with bottled liqueurs

So it’s drain your glasses dry….
