We both saw but didn’t say
Just kept on pretending that it was okay
Now tomorrow is so far from yesterday
And the things we let go aren’t coming back
I guess we can see where our relationship lacked
Yeah, we both saw but never said
As we clung to our very last thread
What we gain won’t return what we lost
Now we come to the bridge we thought crossed

Now there’re only fragments
Fragments on the floor
Pieces of how it was before
Scattered around with the broken picture frame parts
And how it used to be

Fragments on my floor
Covered with the tears you swore
You’d never cry
I guess goodbye was just implied
By leftover fragments on the floor
Pieces of how it was before
Keeps me still when the outside is moving so fast

Fragments of where we went wrong
Fragments of us staying strong
But time ran out and so did you
Now I’m let searching for anything true

I’m just looking for the answer
To some never answered questions
The fragments can’t be pieced together
Now they’re scarred from heavy weather

Can’t escape the fragments
On the doors, and the floors
And the pillowcase
But worse, they won’t erase
They’re permanently there to remind me
Permanently keeping you with me

I guess we both saw but didn’t say
Just kept on pretending that it was okay
Now tomorrow is so far from yesterday
And the fragments cover everything, everything
Fragments on the doors and floors
Covering the bed and suffocating all the words you said
Fragments on my floor
Covered with the tears you swore
You’d never cry
I guess goodbye was just implied
By leftover fragments on the floor
I guess goodbye was just implied
By the leftover fragments on the floor
The leftover fragments on the floor…

    General Comment"Pieces of how it was before
    Keeps me still when the outside is moving so fast "-i like that lyric

    "I guess goodbye was just implied
    By the leftover fragments on the floor" does anyone know what these "fragments" he speaks of are? at first, after reading it i thought it was glass from a broken picture frame maybe of his last relationship or something-

    "Pieces of how it was before
    Scattered around with the broken picture frame parts
    And how it used to be"

    but now i dont think that, i just dont know. ive never heard of them before, but i like the lyrics. anyone know where i can download this stuff? good lyrics

    General Commentits a a song written after something that truely happened, as most of these songs are. it was a confussing relationships. there were some major screw ups. there was a big fight, i went out for a few hours, come back to find all of her things gone and scattered around the apartment, a broken picture frame with tear droplets on the glass. pretty sad story, but she wasn't meant for me anyway:)
