lyrics

Delicate as an icicle in the sunshine
One ray of light, it trickles to the ground
Watch it playfully glisten
Dazzles you almost blind
Most do not care for the fragility inside

And you're merely just an icicle
More that meets the eye
Maybe that's why I jealously admire
All those who catch your eye.

But I don't know why you say the things
You say exactly what they want to hear
And all those near to you think they're dear to you
But they're never any closer than a stranger.

Beautiful as a snowdrop blooming in the Spring
A whole sea of whiteness, fields of serenity
Gradually fall to pieces, soon they all die away
Even a simple flower in all its glory will decay

And you're merely just a snowdrop
Beauty and weakness combined
That explains my desperate sigh
As once again you pass me by.

But I don't know why you say the things
You say exactly what they want to hear
And all those near to you think they're dear to you
But they're never any closer than a stranger.
