"Leave The Pieces" as written by and William D./hanson Austin....
You're not sure that you love me
But you're not sure enough to let me go
Baby it ain't fair
You know to just keep me hanging round
You say you don't wanna hurt me
Don't wanna see my tears
So why are you still standing here
Just watching me drown

And it's alright
Yeah, I'll be fine
Don't worry about this heart of mine
Just, take your love and hit the road
'Cause nothing you can do or say
You're gonna break my heart anyway
So just leave the pieces when you go

Now you can drag out the heartache
Or Baby you can make it quick
We'll get it over with and just let me move on
Don't concern yourself with this mess you left for me
I can clean it up you'll see
Just as long as your gone

And it's alright
Yeah, I'll be fine
Don't worry about this heart of mine
Just, take your love and hit the road
'Cause nothing you can do or say
You're gonna break my heart anyway
So just leave the pieces when you go

You're not making up your mind
It's killin' me
And wasting time
I need so much more then that

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

And it's alright
Yeah, I'll be fine
Don't worry about this heart of mine
Just, take your love and hit the road
'Cause nothing you can do or say
You're gonna break my heart anyway
So just leave the pieces when you go

Leave the pieces when you go
Leave the pieces when you go

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Leave the pieces when you go

    General CommentThis song is an amazing one. I am a huge fan of Michelle Branch and this song is totally her, the lyrics and whatnot.

    I believe it's about being in a relationship, though it goes South. And rather than drag it out and create more heartache, they should let it go before it goes any farther, causing more pain to both.

    General CommentWould like to specify--- I am not a country fan by any stretch of the imagination. I'm just a fan of people doing what they were clearly born to do, and Jess Harp and M. Branch were so obviously born to make music like this. In fact, this song is too cool to be labelled country. I would like, henceforth, to call it Organically Rustic. Just take your love and hit the road, suckers!!! This song owns!

    General CommentBe nice, honey. You don't have to be ashamed that you like something that's country. No need to be in denial. Michelle Branch and Jess Harp are proud to call it country, so you should be, too. There happen to be a lot of really good country songs, thanks.

    General CommentThis song really hits me. I've been in this situation. I knew the relationship wasn't going to work and he kept on trying to keep me in it...and kept sweet talking me. He could never make up his mind if he wanted me or not so I dumped him. I love this song. It's great and they're voices sound great together.

    General Commenti love the opening line because its so true in so many cases, im always been strung along by guys who cant seem to make up their mind if they love me or not, its a drag
