Teacup

Teacup
Music: Grace McDunnough
Lyrics: Salome Strangelove

The shadows think I’m lonely
I hear them whisper in the shade
They’ll keep me company
Then suddenly betray
So I play it easy
Pretending I don’t know
That door’s already closed
These hands are just for show

Won’t you loan me a quiet place
Lead me at a gentle pace
Show me there is kindness
Somewhere there must be kindness
Because too much is not enough
And the world holds nothing more
Than the tempest in my teacup
The tempest in my teacup

It’s a fragile kind of calm
When you know the storm’s so close
One ripple on the pond
Resurrecting all the ghosts
So I play it easy
Pretending not to see
That dam’s already broke
This water’s just debris

Won’t you clear me a little space
Offer me a warm embrace
Show me there is kindness
Somewhere there must be kindness
Because too much is not enough
And the world holds nothing more
Than the tempest in my teacup

Leviathan on the horizon
Herald of despair
Never drawing any closer
But somehow always there

It’s a warm day in the Spring
The hyacinth hide the honey bees
Illusions with their sting
While petals float in on the breeze
So I play it easy
Pretending not to hear
The hum that shatters glass
These thoughts are just for tears

Won’t you lay me down in grace
Lie and say there’s no disgrace
Show me there is kindness
Somewhere there must be kindness
Because too much is not enough
And the world holds nothing more
Than the tempest in my teacup
