You've been lying in bed for a week now
Wondering how long it'll take
You haven't spoken or looked at her in all that time
It's the easiest line you could break
She's been going about her business as usual
Always with that melancholy smile
But you were too busy looking into your affairs
To see those tiny tears in her eyes

Tiny tears make up an ocean
Tiny tears make up a sea
Let them pour out, pour out all over
Don't let them pour all over me

How can you hurt someone so much your supposed to care for
Someone you said you'd always be there for
But when that water breaks you know you're gonna cry, cry
When those tears start rolling you'll be back

Tiny tears

You've been thinking about the time, you've been dreading it
But now it seems that moment has arrived
She's at the edge of the bed, she gets in
But it's hard to turn the opposite way tonight

Tiny tears

    General CommentAgreed. Most of their stuff is achingly beautiful. This seems to centre on the crisis point of a relationship that neither partner can face up to. He knows. She knows. But no one says anything.
    I think he's done something unspeakably awful like had an affair with her best friend or drowned the cat in the washing machine. Or the other way around. Exactly what it is we don't know, nor should we.
    He's been there, waiting for it to be discussed but she shuns hims, carrying on as normal but breaking up inside. The narrator has no sympathy with him and the moment comes to a head at the end of the song.
