Dead man walking in my shoes-
Breaks his heart as he breaks the news
That everyone expected.
Why couldn't he accept it?
He was tearing at the seams-
Seems the world wouldn't let him dream.
Feeling like the end of the line-
Maybe it's a sign of the times.

Keep calm and carry on,
But I'm down to nothing.
Even if we start to break apart-

With a little bit of luck,
I'm gonna find a way.
Oh, I swear this won't be all for nothing-
'Cause I'm picking up again.
Just need a little bit of love,
No matter what they say.
If I'm down, don't count me out-
It won't be long,
'Cause I'm picking up-
Picking up the pieces.

Clock stops-
Looking at a Polaroid photograph,
Never gonna be the same.
My pain is a secondhand heartbreak-
Passed out just like every other bad trick.
Gotta stay strong-
Gotta try to move on.
Gotta stick together-
It's the only thing we've got now.
Take my hand, even if I start to break apart-

With a little bit of luck,
I'm gonna find a way.
Oh, I swear this won't be all for nothing-
'Cause I'm picking up again.
Just need a little bit of love,
No matter what they say.
If I'm down, don't count me out-
It won't be long,
'Cause I'm picking up-
Picking up the pieces.

Picking up, picking up-
Picking up, picking up, yeah.
Picking up, picking up-
'Cause I'm picking up-
(Take my hand...)
Picking up the pieces.

Ohh- I need a little bit of love,
A little bit of love.
Yeah-
I'm gonna find a way.
(I'm gonna find a way.)
Oh, I swear this won't be all for nothing-
'Cause I'm picking up again.
Just need a little bit of love,
(I need a little love.)
No matter what they say.
(Take my hand.)
If I'm down, don't count me out-
It won't be long,
(Take my hand.)
'Cause I'm picking up-
Picking up the pieces.

Picking up, picking up-
My pain is a secondhand heartbreak.
Picking up, picking up-
'Cause I'm picking up-
Picking up the pieces.
