"Pieces" as written by and Douglas Sean/estrin Robb....
Turn around and pick up the pieces

I like a rock sink
Sinking til I hit the bottom
The water is much deeper than I thought

Nothing to swim with
Kicking but I keep sinking
A lesson that no one could have ever taught

[Chorus]
Cause I can almost breathe the air
Right beyond my fingertips
I'll turn around and pick up the pieces
One more push and I'll be there
Back where I belong
I'll turn around and pick up the pieces

I see the picture
Blurry but now it's in focus
A fairy tale I purchased on my own

I finally woke up
Everything is better
A chance for me to open up and grow

[Chorus]

Turn around and pick up the pieces [Repeat: x3]

Suffocating
Sinking further almost everyday
(Turn around and pick up the pieces)
Barely treading water
(Turn around and pick up the pieces)
Knowing I will not give up
I will not give up

I will not give up

[Chorus]

    General CommentI think this song is about being in deep, and being able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I think it means even though things don't seem good, if you keep pushing and trying you'll get there. Never giving up on what you can be, if you just keep trying!

    General CommentI love how they`re telling people never to give up no matter how far below the surface you may be. You can always make, you just need to keep pushing.

    General CommentI love this song, I always listen to it when I'm in a bad mood. It's got such a great message behind it. It sounds kind of angry, yet it tells people to not give up on life no matter how hard or hopeless things may be.

    General CommentGreat meaning in this song. Even if you're really in deep, you can still see the light at the surface. The only way you'll drown in your troubles is if you stop trying to swim to the top.
