"Before I Fall To Pieces" as written by Johnny Borrell and Andy Burrows....
Oh, one more drink and then I'll go
But there's one more thing I've got to know
Does he take you places that I don't?
And what happened to the story that we wrote?

You just say you don't know, you don't know
Oh no, you don't know, you don't know, woo!

Oh, let's just get this whole thing straight
I don't wanna kidnap the truth and negotiate
Or miss the point that they met you
Just wanna hear you say something that you believe to be true

But you say you don't know, you don't know
You just say you don't know, you don't know
What it feels like, what it feels like

And so I'll go before I fall to pieces
Yes, I'll go before I fall to pieces

Now I'm just waiting for something that might never come
If it's a million to one shot, I'll make sure I'm one
Seems that nothing is safe except the truth turns to lies
Never figured it out, I found out why

So I'll go, yes I'll go
Yes I'll go, yes I'll go
Oh baby I'll go, oh yes I'll go
Yes I'll go, oh yes I'll go

Before I fall to pieces
Before I fall to pieces
Yes I'll go before I fall to pieces
Yes I'll go before I fall to pieces

    General CommentI think it's about him asking an ex why her new lover is better than him, and she isn't giving a straight answer, and that's making him hurt all the more. And he really wants her back too.

    General CommentNice lyrics to this one
    Sounds like its about a girlfriend/ex/friend, who he's fed up with and shes driving him up the wall because of the things mentioned in the song?

    General CommentI really like this song. One of my fav on the album. I think its about either a girl that left him for another man. Or he is having a conversation with atleast an ex and wants some answers as to why they aren't together anymore.

    General CommentYou know when your boyfriend/girlfriend calls you over to their place, sits you down to talk to you, then tells you they've been seeing someone else?

    That's what this song is about.

    General CommentWell.....I dont think so. It sounds kinda like wasting your life on someone, to then realise that they really aren't interested. It's taking yourself off before the situation becomes even more awkward. You know, when you like someone, and it really is ALL you cant think about.

    And then....then something happens, a lokk, a kiss, anything, and you realise that they dont like you...It sucks...But it's life. x

    General CommentI don't think this song is about an ex, i think that he's got involved with a girl who's cheating on her boyfriend and he's the other guy, and he's fallen for her big time, he wants her to leave him but she's not giving him a straight answer and basically just arseing around... I think in the end he just gets fed up of her messing him about and decides she ain't worth it.

    Whatever it means, I love the song anyway. x

    General Commenti think it's supposed to be

    "or miss the point, aim at you"

    in line 10, and not "that they met you...

    but yeah, besides Vice definately ma favourite song.
    ever.

    General CommentI think this is about a girl that he's met.. and the girls seems to be a playa.
    He's obviously fallen for her, but she wont give him a straight answer about how she feels etc.

    So the 'before i fall to pieces' seems to say that he wants to leave and rather not know now because he doesn't want any heartbreak.
