I wanna write myself
on the walls of your heart
Because the knot that holds us
altogether throws us all apart
I'm gonna stop myself
before I say something true
Because the answers
that roll from my tongue
are nothing to do with you

And I hold a piece up to the light
Hold a piece up to my eye
Found a missing piece from my set
Found a person I'd not met
Hold a piece up to the light
Hold a piece up to my eye
Found a missing piece from my set
Found a person I'd not met

Sometimes is a lonely place
So tow me over to the light,
The sound, the sound it is in sight
Found my heart was contained within a cell
Found my heart in this tuck-a-way-me world

I hold a piece up to the light
Hold a piece up to my eye
Found a missing piece from my set
Found a person I'd not met

Sometimes is a lonely place

Sometimes I held the missing piece

    General CommentIt's about finding someone who completes you for the first time when you've always gotten what you wanted. You're in awe and speechless for the most part and all you have to cope is your mind and body, hence the line "Sometimes is a lonely place". It's not about being somewhere lonely but rather having something that's lonely sometimes. Brief interactions, thoughts, etc that make the feeling of despair go away; but in the end the narrator realizes that it's all in their grasp. "Sometimes I held the missing piece".
