lyrics

One foot in the ground
Can't hold down a job
quite the way I used to
No no oh oo oh
So scared of the dark
I fold my hands to God
And pray that I'm still useful
So so oh oo oh
Seems like only yesterday
everything was restin’ in it's proper place
‘Strong wind came from miles away
and it looks as if it's truly tryna stay here

And it gets hard pickin’ up the pieces
I can’t do this by myself
I need someone to help
Cause it's so hard pickin’ up the pieces
though they seem so out of place
I can't throw none away

Thousand days of road
Picture’s still not clear
Fragments that don't fit together
What are they doing here
If I keep fallin' down
I'll need a diagram
to help me examine
Who I really am
With no one else around
Who's fault is it now
Should I blame it on the doubt
or just scream out really loud

With all of these pieces
Still can't find no peace yet
I stretch out my fingers
but it’s just beyond reach

And it gets hard pickin’ up the pieces
I can’t do this by myself
I need someone to help
Cause it's so hard pickin’ up the pieces
though they seem so out of place
I can't throw none away

So I look out on my window pane
Dustin’ off my cold remains
Hope to catch a second wind
So I can be whole again
Watching the world as it divides
unequal opposing sides
puzzled pieces pose as men
so I guess ‘til then
I’ll keep pickin’ em up
I’ll be pickin’ em up
