"Broken Pieces" as written by Fiora Cutler, Guy Sigsworth and Eicca Toppinen....
Too late, this is not the answer
I need to pack it in
I can't pull your heart together with just my voice alone
A thousand shards of glass I came to meet you in
You cut the peace out of me
And as you ripped it all apart
That's when I turned to watch you
And as the light in you went dark
I saw you turn to shadow
If you would salvage some part of you that once knew love
But I'm losing this
And I'm losing you

Oh I've gotta turn and run
The places that you never see
Oh I've gotta save my blood
From all that you've broken
Pack up these pieces of me

It's too late now to stop the process
This was your choice you let it in
This double life you lead is eating you up from within
A thousand shards of glass you pushed beneath my skin
And left me lying there to bleed
And as you showed my your scars
I only held you closer
But as the light in you went dark I saw you turn over
I wanted always to be there for you and close to you
But I'm losing this
And I'm losing you

Oh I've gotta turn and run
The places that you never see
Oh I've gotta save my blood
From all that you've broken
Pack up these pieces of me

These broken pieces
Pack up these pieces of me
These broken pieces
Pack up these pieces

Maybe without me
You'll return to all the beauty I once knew
But if I stay I know
We will both be drowned by you holding on to me

Oh I've gotta turn and run
From faces that you never see
Oh I've gotta save my blood
From all that you've broken
Pack up these pieces of me

These broken pieces
Pack up these pieces of me
These broken pieces
Pack up these pieces of me

    General CommentTo me it seems like a relationship where she is seeing a different side of someone that she fell in love of with. She wants to love him and remember him as she originally saw him, but cant do it. It reminds me of either an abusive relationship or a relatinoship where he was cheating.

    General CommentDoes anyone else get reminded of the Phantom of the Opera when listening to this song, it fits it almost to a tee. For example: the Phantom fell in love with Christine after hearing her beautiful voice and when Christine first goes into the Phantom's house/cave she is surrounded by mirrors.

    Over time, she realizes that he's not as perfect as she had originally thought.

    Lyric CorrectionThese are the correct lyrics:

    Too late, this is not the answer
    I need to pack it in
    I can't pull your heart together with just my voice alone
    A thousand shards of glass I came to meet you in
    You cut the peace out of me

    And as you ripped it all apart
    That's when I turned to watch you
    And as the light went in you went dark
    I saw you turn to shadow
    If you would salvage some part of you that once knew love
    But I'm losing this
    And I'm losing you

    Oh I've gotta turn and run
    From faces that you never see
    Oh I've gotta save my blood
    From all that you've broken
    And pack up these pieces of me

    It's too late now to stop the process
    This was your choice, you let it in
    This double life you lead is eating you up from within
    A thousand shards of glass you pushed beneath my skin
    And left me lying there to bleed

    And as you showed my your scars
    I only held you closer
    But as the light in you went dark I saw you turn over
    I wanted always to be there for you, be close to you
    But I'm losing this
    And I'm losing you

    Oh I've gotta turn and run
    From faces that you never see
    Oh I've gotta save my blood
    From all that you've broken
    And pack up these pieces of me

    Maybe without me
    You'll return to all the beauty I once knew
    But If I stay I know we will both be drowned by you holding onto me

    Oh I've gotta turn and run
    From faces that you never see
    Oh I've gotta save my blood
    From all that you've broken
    And pack up these pieces of me

    These broken pieces of me
    These broken pieces of me

    General Commentsecretlyinsane is right. A girl's lover is turning into something else. Like if he has a split personality.One side the girl loves so very much but when he turns over he breaks her into pieces,

    "But as the light in you went dark I saw you turn over"

    i cant say i love this song because i love every song on my ipod and that would be the only thing that would come out of my mouth.~_~
