water works - crying, shedding tears
soaring - flying or sailing often at a great height by floating on air currents
itch - to have or produce an unpleasant feeling on your skin or inside your mouth, nose, etc. that makes you want to scratch
peculiar - not usual or normal; peculiar to = of, relating to, or found in only one person, thing, or place
deficit - an amount (such as an amount of money) that is less than the amount that is needed

dim - (verb) to make a light less bright or to become less bright
