Piece by Piece

Lyricist:     Composer:


And all I remember is your back
Walking towards the airport, leaving us all in your
past
I traveled 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 i
n 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 a father could stay

And all of your words fall flat
I made something of myself
and now you want to 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 i
n 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 fai
th
That a man can be kind and a father could stay



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 a father should be great
