Lyrics

Pieces

It's a beautiful sadness

That moves us through the day

Through twisted mazes filled with tortured compromise

And that which doesn't kill us

Can really make you want to scream

And seek solace in the absence of alibis

But the thing we never say out loud is...

That I'm so afraid

Scared of what they're going to say

Still haunted by yesterday

And tears can't make up for lost time

What's left I plan to keep as mine

Won't let it go without a fight

And it starts today

I give away pieces

Scatter them around

Share a secret with a stranger for a night

But I'm the only one who knows

What's really going down

It's easy when you keep it all inside

Still the thing we never say out loud is...

That I'm so afraid

Scared of what they're going to say

Still haunted by yesterday

And tears can't make up for lost time

What's left I plan to keep as mine

Won't let it go without a fight

And it starts today

And I'm so afraid

Scared of what they're going to say

Still haunted by yesterday

And tears can't make up for lost time

What's left I plan to keep as mine

Won't let it go without a fight

And it starts today
