"Picking Up" as written by and Tom Waits....
I'm picking up pieces
Little bit by little bit
And I haven't done this in a while
I'm seeing old places
Take a hit of small town news
Don't want to be here tonight
I'm dealing with ghosts
I guess we're gonna find out now
Nobody here to catch my fall
I'm playing house host
To a different feeling every night
I've never been so alone in a bed.

And there's nothing new to see
Just new eyes to cry with
Losing her's like pulling teeth
We both know
This lovesick life has got to go
But I don't want to be alone

I'm staying out later
Blurry eyes make brand new thoughts
Shouldn't be driving tonight
Faces fade faster
If you don't see them every time
You turn a corner in this place
And her name takes forever every time I think it
It leaves a little trail of thoughts behind
Lover to friend seems easy when you say it
I think we made it work last night

And there's nothing new to see
Just new eyes to cry with
Losing her's like pulling teeth
We both know
This lovesick life has got to go
But I don't want to be alone

And there's nothing new to see
Just new eyes to cry with
Losing her's like pulling teeth
We both know
This lovesick life has got to go
But I don't want to be alone
