"Piece by Piece" as written by and Paddy Mcaloon....
First of all must go
Your scent upon my pillow
And then I'll say goodbye
To your whispers in my dreams.
And then our lips will part
In my mind and in my heart,
Cause your kiss
Went deeper than my skin.

Piece by piece
Is how I'll let go of you
Kiss by kiss
Will leave my mind one at a time
One at a time

First of all must fly,
My dreams of you and I,
There's no point of holding on to those
And then our ties will break,
For your and my own sake,
Just remember,
This is what you chose

Piece by piece
Is how I'll let go of you
Kiss by kiss,
Will leave my mind one at a time
One at a time

I'll shed like skin,
Our memories of lazy days,
And fade away the shadow of your face

Piece by piece
Is how I'll let go of you
Kiss by kiss,
Will leave my mind one at a time
One at a time
One at a time
One at a time

    General CommentThis song is quite obviously about a break-up and the way she learns to handle the new situation. I love the change of melody during the "I'll shed like skin (...)" part and also her kind of eerie-sounding voice right after those lines.

    General CommentA nice song. Probably the best off the album, along with I Cried For You and Spider's Web, which, incidently, were all written by Katie Melua. A bit on the thin side in terms of lyrics - the song is made longer by a verse of "Ooh, ooh ooh" but Katie's voice makes it better than some of the crap that's on the album. Kudos.
