"Pieces" as written by Deryck Jason Whibley and Greig Andrew Nori....
I tried to be perfect
But nothing was worth it
I don't believe it makes me real
I'd thought it'd be easy
But no on believes me
I left all the things that I said

If you believe it's in my soul
I'd say all the words that I know
Just to see if it would show
That I'm trying to let you know
That I'm better off on my own

This place is so empty
My thoughts are so tempting
I don't know how it got so bad
Sometimes it's so crazy that nothing could save me
But it's the only thing that I have

If you believe it's in my soul
I'd say all the words that I know
Just to see if it would show
That I'm trying to let you know
That I'm better off on my own

(On my own!)

I tried to be perfect
It just wasn't worth it
Nothing could ever be so wrong
It's hard to believe me
It never gets easy
I guess I knew that all along

If you believe it's in my soul
I'd say all the words that I know
Just to see if it would show
That I'm trying to let you know
That I'm better off on my own

    General CommentI can really relate so freaking much to this song. It's like they know what I've been thinking....

    For me it relates to what I think about everything after all the situations and problems that have happened in my family. It's really personal.

    I thought i'd try, "tried to be perfect", but nothing was worth it. Nothing is worth it anymore because nothing has ever worked for me. I'm not being real if I try anymore. For anyone. Because this is who I am.

    And no one believes me when I said everything that I've ever said no matter how unbelievable it is, or how you'd never expect me to because I've been pretending and "trying to be perfect" for you.

    "My thoughts are so tempting", I wish what I wished would come true, all the good things and all the terrible things that I think. "I don't know how it got so bad." And nothing can save me and my thoughts are the only thing I have because I'm alone, and I'm better off on my own. Away from everyone and everyones problems.

    All I can say is all the words that I know and hope that you understand that that is all I can ever do, and I hope you understand that I really am better off on my own.
