Apocalyptica – Broken Pieces lyrics

Too late, this is not the answer
I need to pack it in
I can't pull your heart together,
With just my voice alone.

A thousand shards of glass,
I came to meet you and,
And you cut the piece out of me.

And as you ripped it all apart
That's when I turned to watch you.
And as the light in you went dark
I saw you turn to shadow

If you would salvage some part of you
That once knew love
But I'm losing this
And I'm losing you

Oh, I've gotta turn and run
From faces that you never see
Oh I've gotta save my blood
From all that you've broken
I hold these pieces of me

It's too late now
To stop the process
This was your choice
You let it in
This double life you lead
Is eating you up from within
A thousand shards of glass
You pushed beneath my skin
Left me lying there to bleed

And as you showed me your scars
I only held you closer
But as the light in you went dark
I saw you turn over
I wanted always to be there for you and close to you
But I'm losing this
And I'm losing you

Oh, I've gotta turn and run
From faces that you never see
Oh I've gotta save my blood
From all that you've broken
I hold these pieces of me

The broken pieces
I hold these pieces of me
The broken pieces
I hold these pieces

Maybe without me you'll return
All the beauty I once knew
But if I stay I know
We will both be drowned by your holding onto me

Oh, I've gotta turn and run
From faces that you never see
Oh I've gotta save my blood
From all that you've broken
I hold these pieces of me

The broken pieces
I hold these pieces of me
The broken pieces
I hold these pieces of me

    I think this song is about a girl who meets a boy that is in a depressed state or in a bad point in life and triesto help that person to overcome wherever problem he or she has. Thanks to her he gradually recovers. However that person slowly changes and hurts the one who tried to help him in the first place. The song implies that he's trying leave her in the same position he was in and that as much as she tries she cannot make him stop trying to hurt her.

    The song is about someone (boy or girl, most likely girl in this song) who has a friend who goes pretty much insane. The person goes to their friend to talk to them. The friend gets angry apparently, smashes a window, then stabs the person with the glass. The person slowly bleeds to death and watches their friend slowly fade away as they die. I believe this song goes perfectly in the movie "the black swan". I've yet to see it, but I plan to see it one day. I love this band as well. The strings in this song are amazing as well as the musicians who play them.
