"Jigsaw Girl" as written by Todd Lewis, Mark G. Reznicek, Lisa Rene Umbarger and Chris Vogeler....
Give me your hand and I will hold it forever
On my nightstand, in a box with your love letters
I love you dear and I know we will not be parted
I'll keep you near, scattered round my apartment

This is not the same world you live in
And I could breathe easier once I brought you back in
You are not the same girl you have been
I promise I'll never lose you

Give me your hair, just a lock will do
An old photograph to capture the spirit of you
Well I'll keep these things wrapped up in an old cotton blouse
The one you wore that summer before your love petered out

This is not the same world you live in
And I could breathe easier once I brought you back in
You are not the same girl you have been
I promise I'll never lose you

Laid on my bed, a beautiful mess, my whole world, jigsaw girl
You gave me your hand, you gave me your hand
And I don't understand why you don't want it back

This is not the same world you live in
And I could breathe easier once I brought you back in
You are not the same girl you have been
I promise I'll never lose you, never lose you
Oh yeah tell you true I'll never lose you

    General CommentAbsolutely brilliant. I CANNOT believe this whole album didn't catch on better. Blame Interscope records, I guess.

    General Commentthis one's pretty obvious, eh? he liked a girl, she stopped liking him so he cut her up and put her around his house so she'll be with him forever.

    General CommentI think you guys are missing something. I think he's actually planning on bringing this girl back to life.
    That verse about the hair, the photograph and the blouse, I think that's ingredients for some ritual to make her the living dead.
    "I could breathe easier, once I brought you back again."
    Hence the title Jigsaw girl, he's going to put her back together after he cut her apart.
    Hot damn. The Toadies were grandly evil and bizarre.

    General CommentThis is my second favorite Toadies song (1st is Tyler), but anyways. This song is very cool, but also kinda sad when you really think about it, because he's never going to actually be with his whole world (his girlfriend) again, the girl herself being dead & cut-up, and there's also this strange lonely/old feeling that makes it sad (probably the way he sings the songs and unusually normal tune). It's very hard for me to explain what I exactly mean...

    General CommentI hate to double post, but I meant "song" not "songs" on the second-to-the-last sentence on that last comment I made. (For some reason, that typo just throws me off so much).

    General CommentI think this song is more of she left him, but he is still in love. He is finding little peices of her around the house, things that remind him of being with her. thus the title jigsaw girl. Except now he is obsessed with having her back.. kind of psychotic in a way. Thats just my interpretation(sp)

    General Commenthmmm, i'm not understanding how the conclusion that she was cut up got reached.

    i'm inclined to agree with Destructingbeauty, she left him ("before your love petered out.") and he's holding onto her stuff.
    --love letters
    --blouse
    --lock of hair
    --photograph

    these are the pieces in the ''jigsaw girl" and he puts them together so he can keep her close.

    ''once i bring you back again" --when they're together again.

    they're heavy into the obsession bit, but i'm not seeing anyone getting cut up in the song. simply the fact that he refuses to move on.

    General Commentseems kinda like its about a couple, and the girl changed, like drug abuse or something of that sort, and the guy couldnt stand it or something and broke it off, but still loved the old her so therefore kept all the pictures n stuff. thats kinda a rough idea
