Pieces of Me

In case you are unaware, I’m also a songwriter – in fact, I’d describe myself as more a songwriter than a novelist, but for some strange reason it’s a lot harder to get ears than eyes this days! I wish I knew why.

Anyways, I recently wrote this indie folk song. Please give it a listen and let me know if you like it! Click below to listen or download, lyrics are below.

Lyrics:

Little pieces of my heart

Are scattered like an omen

Little shatters of my soul

I give away like candy

 

You can fly with the sea

If you become the torrent

I explode across the breeze

I never was not no one

 

Tiny fragments of my skin

Are floating in your matter

Just a segment of my blood

The red will try to make you mine

 

In the pillar of yourself

I reap the essence slowly

Taking chunks of you I need

This hungry wilting zombie

 

Roll

No one

Breathe

Then pay the fee

 

Roll

Are you someone?

Reach

Nothing’s free

 

Half for you

Half for me

And more for the rest of you

Take a bite

Have a feast

There’s more where I got it from

Cuz one plus everyone makes me

 

Roll

No one

Breathe

Then pay the fee

 

Roll

Are you someone?

Reach

Nothing’s free

 

Won’t you taste the salty earth

That wraps around my being?

Can we fall into the soil

To eat the bugs and melt the leaves?

 

I can’t lift the weight of disappointment

Heartache, that crashes through the lonely

Only leave a little drop, a morsel

A seed
