Piece By Piece

Everyday you manage to tear a
Piece of my soul and I watch it float away
On yon hill and I swear I saw it smile
As I wave it goodbye

And your tear up my identity – piece by piece
So now I carry scraps of my paper heart with me – piece by piece

I’m chasing dignity and a bit of
Respectability now the foundations are a
Bit creaky its emotionally unstable
Frequently

And when I needed you most you came dissembled me – piece by piece
And like a bulldozer coming in and tumbling me – piece by piece

But I’ve shown that I’ve grown

I can do it on my own
And now you know it aint no show
I’ve been doing what I’m told
And this time I am all mine
PS I’m doing fine
Now I’ve grown
Piece by piece

Now and then I remember what a
Shell I’d been and all the things that I had
Hidden within are now displayed like a
Patchwork quilt of war scars

Now I’m slotting myself back together again – piece by piece
Feeling like my old self again – piece by piece

But I’ve shown that I’ve grown
I can do it on my own
And now you know it aint no show
I’ve been doing what I’m told
And this time I am all mine
PS I’m doing fine
Now I’ve grown
