Tear
By Jeff Johnson with words* from "The Tempest" by William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)

If a tear should fall like a falling star through the evening sky,
Like a thousand years in the eyes of God,
From the eyes of men –
If a tear should fall, let it fall like stars lighting up the sky.

We are such stuff as dreams are made of,
Our lives are rounded with a sleep.
If there is anything I know for sure tonight we will awake.*

If a sparrow dies in the midst of flight,
If a flower fades in the sun's pure light,
But a thousand years in the eyes of God –
Like the cold earth's core burning up like love in a frozen heart.

We are such stuff as dreams are made of,
Our lives are rounded with a sleep.
If there is anything I know for sure tonight we will awake.*
