Lyrics

2) Pick Up The Pieces

 

I have walked the right road sometimes

not often enough to make a difference

I travel down the wrong road most times

and don’t ya know

that wrong road gets awful rough

 

 I got to pick up the pieces of my life

 creating a world I understand

 

 Hey I need to be forgiven for all my sins

 Yea I’ve had many sins

 Hey I need to be forgiving to all my friends

 Yea I have many friends

 

I want to pick up the pieces of my life

I want to know how it feels to live again

 

 I set my sight on sometime

 but I’m loosing sight of it

 sometime comes in no time

 and soon it’ll turn to shit

 A little here A little there

 lost my nose lost my ear

 Little bitty pieces of me scattered everywhere

 

 I got to pick up the pieces of my life

 I want to know how it feels to love again

 

 Shaken to my very core

 Did I wake up from a sleep

 Felt the Earth move sideways

 Did I brake up on the street

 Felt the cold wing blowin’

 with my backbone like a stick

 Don’t know what keeps me goin’ but

 It shapes my politic ¦
