"Love's easy tears" - Cocteau twins

The halcyon days of the Cocteau Twins (late 80s/early 90s) were often perfumed with the carefree extravagance of Liz's melismatic vocalization, Robert's somnific reverb overlays and indecipherable (and hence polysemous) lyrics. "Love's easy tears" is a typical example from that period. I have absolutely no clue what she is singing about but I just love the tonality.

Hello, it has been released for so long, that actually until now, eventually, I got a clue what she is singing about. Love's easy tears is a sign of leaving.... she cries, you wouldn't like to see.
