"Picking Up The Pieces " as written by Paloma Faith, Wayne Anthony Hector and Timothy Martin Powell....
Do you think of her?
When you're with me?
Repeat the memories you made together
Whose face do you see?
Do you wish I was a bit more like her?
Am I too loud?
I play the clown
To cover up all these doubts

Perfect heart
She's flawless
She's the other woman
Shining in her splendor
You were lost

Now she's gone
And I'm picking up the pieces
I watch you cry
But you don't see that I'm the one by your side
'Cause she's gone
In her shadow is it me you see?
'Cause all that's left is you and I
And I'm picking up the pieces she left behind

I found a photograph behind the TV
You look so happy are you missing the way it used to be?
And I have changed this room around more often lately
It's clear that we
And these four walls
Still known as hers and yours

Perfect part
She's flawless
She's the other woman
Shining in her splendor
You were lost

Now she's gone
And I'm picking up the pieces
I watch you cry
But you don't see that I'm the one by your side
'Cause she's gone
In her shadow is it me you see?
'Cause all that's left is you and I
And I'm picking up the pieces she left behind

Are we liars in denial?
Are we smoke without the fire?
Tell me please is this worth it?
I deserve it

'Cause she's gone
And I'm picking up the pieces
I watch you cry
But you don't see that I'm the one by your side
'Cause she's gone
In her shadow is it me you see?
'Cause all that's left is you and I
And I'm picking up the pieces
She left behind

Oh, I'm picking up the pieces
Of a broken heart
Who will save them?
Who will save them?
I'm picking up the pieces
Oh, I'm picking up the pieces
Somebody save me
Somebody save me
Oh, oh, oh, oh

    My InterpretationThe concept behind this song seems to be heavily based on Daphne DuMaurier's book 'Rebecca'. In short: girl marries man who seemed to be extremely devoted to his previous wife and now feels as though she is "in her shadow".

    My InterpretationThis song is about someone in a new relationship with someone who had just gotten out of a long relationship that ended badly. Paloma is picking up the pieces of what the other woman did to the person she loves.
