"Piece By Piece" as written by Grant Nicholas, Taka Hirose and Jon Lee....
Sitting on a corner street
Children playing at my feet
See the smiles on ice cream faces
Feel myself begin to sink
As the wind blows through my skin
Leaves me open to temptation

'Cause nothing ever lasts forever
We're like flowers in this vase, together

You and me, it's pulling me down
Tearing my down, piece by piece
And you can't see
That's it's like a disease
Killing me now, it's so hard to breathe

Sucking back a cigarette
Thinking about new regrets
Trying to be someone you'd like to be
Passing faces on the road
Where the hell can we still go?
Leaves us open to temptation

'Cause nothing ever lasts forever
We're like flowers in this vase, together

You and me, it's pulling me down
Tearing my down, piece by piece
And you can't see
That's it's like a disease
Killing me now, it's so hard to breathe
It's so hard to breathe

But it's worth fighting for
It's still worth fighting for
It's worth fighting for

'Cause nothing ever lasts forever
We're like flowers in this vase, together

You and me, it's pulling me down
Tearing my down, piece by piece
And you can't see
That's it's like a disease
It's killing me now, it's so hard to breathe

You and me, it's pulling me down
Tearing me down, piece by piece
And you can't see, that it's like a disease
It's killing me now, it's so hard to breathe

    General CommentI love this song. I thought Echo Park was going to be heavy songs a la Buck Rogers, but it doesn't seem so. I've got to buy it!
