"The Pieces Don't fit Anymore" as written by and Robson/brammer/morrison....
I've been twisting and turning,
In a space that's too small.
I've been drawing the line and watching it fall,
You've been closing me in, closing the space in my heart.
Watching us fading and watching it all fall apart.

Well I can't explain why it's not enough, Cause I gave it all to you.
And if you leave me now, oh just leave me now.
Its the better thing to do,
Its time to surrender,
Its been to long pretending.
There's no use in trying,
When the pieces don't fit anymore, Pieces don't fit here anymore.

You pulled me under,
I had to give in.
Such a beautiful myth,
That's breaking my skin.
Well I'll hide all the bruises,
I'll hide all the damage that's done.
But I show how I'm feeling until all the feeling has gone.


Oh don't misunderstand,
How I feel.
Cause I've tried, yes I've tried.
But still I don't know why, no I don't know why.
I don't know why, why!

    General CommentFirst of all... this is the first song I have heard from James and it is beautiful! His voice is just incredible and I love this song.

    THE MEANING: I feel this song describes a man who is being suffocated in a relationship (twisting and turning in a space thats too small). He has given the girl a lot of chances and has said enough is enough one too many times (drawing the line and watching it fall). But he is at a breaking point and realizes that they are two differenet people who want different things (the pieces just don't fit anymore).

    He tried really hard in the relationship but he knows its time to end it and she should walk away. Sometimes letting go is harder than hanging on. I think this song is obviously about a break-up. You can give it your all, pretend that its working out but if the pieces don't fit then it just doesn't make sense. He isn't sure why its not working for them but it just isn't right anymore.

    General CommentI really love this song. It sounds so sad and beautiful. It's one of my favourite James Morrison songs... I guess it's just about breaking up. Or at least he feels like they should, even though he doesn't really want to...
    It's just a lovely song :).

    General CommentThis is the first (or maybe the second) song from James Morrison I ever first listened to. This song and its lyrics have so many special places in my heart.

    General CommentVery nice song, It reminds me of the summertimes. I think it's about a guy who's trying to say to the person he's with, that they'd be better off apart, and they're not made for each other, and he's tried and tried to keep the relationship on track, but he sees it's falling apart and wants to end it as 'the pieces don't fit anymore'.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of how I lost my two best friends because I went out with them and now their being so unmature about the whole thing.
    I've been drawing the line and watching it fall - im drawing a line to not to back to them but I break it and watch it fall.
    Watching us fading and watching it all fall apart - obviously watching our friendship go away.
    Just some things relate to it .. but i deffinetly think its about breaking up. And its super cute.

    General Commenti love this song...because i really can identify with it...it's so sad....but i think those are the songs that touch me the most.

    i mean giving up someone that you loved is very hard...and then accepting the fact that things have changed really sucks more than the letting go part. because you have been such an integral part of each other....it's almost as if you are losing a pert of yourself. after you try to work it out and things still don't change you really do think it's time to let it go...

    "the pieces don't fit anymore"---people shouldn't be with someone who doesn't complement them...it hurts but letting them go is a way for you to get better...letting go hurts but it is also liberating....

    General Commentyeah...he said that the song was about a girlfriend he had...she was always on him about not having a real job to make real money...ALL OF THE TIME...and he said that he had had enough. i mean his life wasn't all that great eaither....his family didn't have any money...he basically had nothing....and then he meets this girl who isn't imporving his life....i would write a song like this too if i had been in his situation.
