              C

 Oh up up all night long


 Verse:
  C                                Em
 You, where the hell did you come from
                                       Am
 You're a different different kind of fun
                             F
 And I'm so used to feeling numb
  C                                    Em
 Now, I've got pins and needles on my tongue
                         Am
 Anticipating what's to come
                            F
 Like a finger on a loaded gun

 I can feel it rising

 I, I wasn't even gonna go out

 But I never would have had a doubt
                                 F
 If I'd have known where I'd be now


 Pre-Chorus:
  C
 Your hands on my hips
       Em
 Still my kiss on your lips
     Am                     G
 Oh, I could do this for a lifetime

 I can't believe I ever breathed without you
                          F
 Baby, you make me feel alive and brand new

 Bring it one more time, one more time

 Verse:
               D
 You know I was broke down
       Am
 I had hit the ground
         C
 I was crying out
             G
 I couldn't make no sound
D              Am              C       G
 No one hears silent tears collecting

 Never been so low

 Beat down on me, beat down like a waterfall

 You know I got this far, I had a broken heart

 No one hears silent tears collecting

 Cause it's being weak that's strong in the truth I'm found

 I have courage now, gonna shout it out
D           Am               C       G
 Teacher I feel the dots connecting


 Pre-Chorus:
  Bm                                D
 Beat down on me, beat down like a waterfall

 Cause I can take on so much more than I have ever been

C                   Em
 So this is my apology
                               Am
 For saying all those shitty things
                          F
 I wish I didn't really mean
                       C
 I'm sorry I'm not sorry
                                  Em
 You had your red flags up and raised
                         Am
 More traffic than east L.A
                    F
 But I drove in anyway
 
 My common sense on holiday


 Pre-Chorus:
C
 People fall outta phase, we were a crashed course
 Em
 We will just be a place stuck on your passport
      Am
 You traveled to some time
     F
 But I hope you will find

 Someone to try for

 Someone to turn your crooked roads into her streets

 Someone whose arms will hold you tight enough to be

 The reason you breathe
                     Am        F
 Be the reason you breathe


 Verse:
C                                Em
 You stay in love like vacation homes
                                Am
 You like summers on the sunny coast
                                  F
 But when the cold need a winter coat
                               C
 You say you will until you don't
                                 Em
 You wore a compass around your neck
                                   Am
 A different North than we'd ever read
                                      F
 Well did you get where you're going yet

 Wish you the worst, wish you the best


 Pre-Chorus:
 C
 I don't know how I fell into your rear view
 Em
 Paralyzed lullabies I couldn't hear you
    Am
 So I hope you were right
      F
 And next to you tonight there's


 Chorus:
              C
 Someone to cry for

Am             F             C
 And all I remember is your back
 Am                           F                    C
 Walking towards the airport leaving us all in your past
             G               Am           F
 I traveled fifteen hundred miles to see you
G               Am
 Begged you to want me
                  F
 But you didnt want to


 Chorus:
       C      
 But piece by piece he collected me
    G
 Up off the ground where you abandon things
      Am                                          F
 And piece by piece he filled the holes that you burned in me

 At six years old and you know
C
 He never walks away

 He never asks for money
G
 He takes care of me

 He loves me
  Am
 Piece by piece

 He restored my faith

 That a man can be kind
                   C
 And a father could stay

 I made something of myself and now you wanna come back
       G                  Am
 But your love it isnt free
               F
 It has to be earned
        G                     Am
 Back then I didnt have anything you needed
         F
 So I was worthless


 Chorus:
       C      
 But piece by piece he collected me
    G
 Up off the ground where you abandon things
      Am                                          F
 And piece by piece he filled the holes that you burned in me

 At six years old and you know

 He never asks for money

 He takes care of me

 He loves me

 If you wanna lead, be a leader
                 G
 If you wanna dream, be a dreamer
                            D
 Climb to the top of that mountain and scream it
        C
 But remember when you get to the top
 Em
 Everything you say is gonna matter
                 G
 Everything you do is gonna add up
               D
 It's what you asked for
      C
 So don't get mad when it's not what you thought

 Careful now, girl, with them Jezebel ways

 Little one playin' with the big boys now

 If you wanna teach be a teacher

 Remember that the footprints you're leaving
       C
 Will tell us all who you really are
 Em
 It's too bad you can't see what you're worth
    G
 Spreadin' your legs 'stead of usin' your words
   D
 Character is shown by the things that we do
      C
 The one thing you're never gonna hide is the truth
Em                                  G
 Cause anyone can tell when you're sellin' out

 And anyone can fly when they're fallin' down

 I had a dream that we were born
Am                  C

          F                                                    C
 I keep driving in this darkness to get you to get you off my mind, off my mind
            C
 I'll start over in a new place, get my feet back on the ground
          Am
 Can't believe the mess that I've made just trying to drown you out
       F
 Maybe one day I won't miss you
                                    C
 I'll stop looking for you in the crowd, in the crowd


 Chorus:
             C                     Am                        
 No matter where you are a little piece of my heart 
          F                        C
 Will be forever with you in the blue, in the blue
         C                    Am
 In a thousand years we'll be far from here
          F                        C
 I'll be forever with you in the blue, in the blue


 Bridge:
             C
 I see your face in every stranger

 Footsteps down the hall
       Am
 Warm breath, back of my neck

 Shadows on the wall
        F
 Your voice is loud as thunder, hey
                                C
 I can hear it crashin' in my head


 Chorus:
             C                     Am                        
 No matter where you are a little piece of my heart 
          F                        C
 Will be forever with you in the blue, in the blue
         C                    Am
 In a thousand years we'll be far from here
          F                        C                  
 I'll be forever with you in the blue, in the blue


 Outro:
C          Am            F                        C
                I'll be forever with you in the blue, in the blue

 But don't you know that it's the low that makes the high so sweet

 When they try to break, break, break you

 That's when you get your break, break, breakthrough

View Just Lyrics...

And all I remember is your back
Walking towards the airport, leaving us all in your past
I travelled fifteen hundred miles to see you
Begged you to want me, but you didn’t want to

But piece by piece, he collected me up
Off the ground, where you abandoned things and
Piece by piece he filled the holes that you burned in me
Six years old and you know
He never walks away
He never asks for money
He takes care of me
He loves me
Piece by piece, he restored my faith
That a man can be kind and the Father could, stay

And all of your words fall flat
I made something of myself and now you wanna come back
But your love, it isn’t free, it has to be earned
Back then I didn’t have anything you needed so I was worthless

But piece by piece, he collected me up
Off the ground, where you abandoned things and
Piece by piece he filled the holes that you burned in me
Six years old and you know
He never walks away
He never asks for money
He takes care of me
'Cause he loves me
Piece by piece, he restored my faith
That a man can be kind and a father could, stay

Piece by piece
Piece by piece
Piece by piece

Piece by piece
Piece by piece
Piece by piece

Piece by piece I fell far from the tree
I will never leave her like you left me
And she will never have to wonder her worth
Because unlike you I’m going to put her first and you know
He’ll never walk away,
He’ll never break her heart
He’ll take care of things, he’ll love her
Piece by piece, he restored my faith
That a man can be kind and the Father should be great

Piece by piece
Piece by piece
Piece by piece
