"Teardrop" by Massive Attack

What I don't understand is what bearing these lyrics have on House. It's driving me nuts.


Love, love is a verb
Love is a doing word
Fearless on my breath
Gentle impulsion
Shakes me makes me lighter
Fearless on my breath

Teardrop on the fire
Fearless on my breath

Nine night of matter
Black flowers blossom
Fearless on my breath
Black flowers blossom
Fearless on my breath

Teardrop on the fire
Fearless on my breath

Water is my eye
Most faithful mirror
Fearless on my breath
Teardrop on the fire of a confession
Fearless on my breath
Most faithful mirror
Fearless on my breath

Teardrop on the fire
Fearless on my breath

Stumbling a little
Stumbling a little

The "stumbling a little" line could be ironic, since House walks with a cane. But the love part? I mean, I can go into some pretty ridiculous deep explinations. For instance, the "love is a verb" part would be a metaphor for House loving life so much that he defies everyone to save his patients. Or... something. I dunno.

I'm probably overthinking this. Erm. Just, this is one of my favorite songs. And it's werid that it's the themesong for this show.
