"Fall To Pieces" as written by Mark M Weinberg and Matt Nathanson....
So I wear you out
So who would've thought that you'd still be here now

And I swore dear
That I never
Wanted to be
Any better
Than your weakest moment

Would you fall to pieces
If I never came back?
Tear it all apart
Til there was nothing left
Would you fall to pieces
If I never came back
Spent so long waiting here

This was all sweet once
When I was fingertips and innocence

And too scared to
Let go I had my
Arms thread through
The pretty holes
Of your most romantic

Would you fall to pieces
If I never came back?
Tear it all apart
Til there was nothing left
Would you fall to pieces
If I never came back
Spent so long waiting here

And I've watched them all move through you
Yeah, I've watched them all let you down.

It's do you
And don't you
Cause I won't forget you
You filled me with nothing
It felt so good
It'll all come out some day

    General CommentI think the first part is talking about how the girl kind of has had enough of him, despite his best efforts (he wears her out). He's surprised she stuck it out as long as she has.

    He wonders if she'd be shattered if he's the one that left. I guess he's wondering if she loves him as much as he loves her.

    The fingertips and innocence tells me this was a first love.

    When it all came apart, he watched her in other failed relationships and he's still waiting for her.

    General Commenti think the "and i've watched them all move through you / yeah, i've watched them all let you down" part is annoying. i don't mind that it's a key change, and i actually kinda like that it's grainy, almost like he found an old recording of a really bad song and he used a pinch of it to add some dimension to this one. but the lyrics of it and the timing are both just awkward and weird. they don't rhyme, nor are they particularly profound, or presenting an interesting idea or metaphor. they just... are. it's like he was trying to do improv and that was the best he could come up with. i wouldn't even mind the lack or lyrical depth or rhyming scheme if just the rhythm wasn't so awkward.

    the song on the whole is good and catchy, but that part just is odd. i wouldn't say out of place, because i think the IDEA is cool. but the way he executes it is just lazy. unless there's some part of the story i don't know. but in that case, to the layperson, it's gonna come across as lazy and awkward. oh well.
