Kelly Clarkson – Piece By Piece lyrics

[Intro]
And all I remember is your back
Walking towards the airport leaving us all in your past
I traveled 1,500 miles to see you
Begged you to want me
But you didn't want to


[Chorus]
But piece by piece you collected me
Up off the ground but you abandoned things
And piece by piece you filled the holes that you burned in me
At six years old and no
He never walks away
He never asks for money
He takes care of me
He loves me
Piece by piece
He restored my faith
That a man can be kind
And a father could stay

[Verse 1]
And all of your words fall flat
I made something of myself and now you wanna come back
But your love isn't free
It has to be earned
Back then I didn't have anything you needed
So, I was worthless

[Chorus]
But piece by piece you collected me
Up off the ground but you abandoned things
And piece by piece you filled the holes that you burned in me
At six years old and no
He never walks away
He never asks for money
He takes care of me
He loves me
Piece by piece
He restored my faith
That a man can be kind
And a father could stay

[Hook]
Piece by piece...

[Verse 2]
Piece by piece I fell far from the tree
I would never leave her like you left me
She will never have to wonder her worth
Because unlike you I'm gonna put her first
He'll never walk away
He'll never break her heart
He'll take care of things
He'll love her
Piece by piece
He restored my faith
That a man can be kind
And a father should be great

[Hook]
Piece by piece...
Piece by piece...

    To me this song can easily be for a step parent that has stepped in when the biological parents have left. You hear so many horrible things that men do, but what about all of the good men out there. I personally believe that if you truly love someone that has children from a previous relationship, that you will love their children too. My fiance has a daughter from a previous marriage. I love her and I look after her as if she were mine. My fiance and I have a four year old and to us she and his other daughter our sisters and together, we are all family.

    So, to be honest this whole song has a big meaning in my life. This song actually was my recent breakup song. I had just went back to my old school to visit. But, when I got there it was like 2:30. The school secretary told me that I couldn't go in until after school. Thing was that was the only time I could go in because the rest of the day I was extremely busy. So, I get back in the car and started listening to the radio. Then, this song turned on. So, I was just sitting there listening to the song when out of nowhere I started crying. I didn't know why. Then, I got home. About 2-3 weeks later I called my best friend. My best friend told me that she didn't want to ruin my mood because I was in a good mood that day. She then told me that my girlfriend's parents didn't want her to be with me anymore. My heart at that time just dropped. I started tearing up. So, I told my friend I had to go. The one song I thought about was this exact song. So, I turned it on YouTube and turned it all the way up. I started to cry. That whole day all I listened to was this song. Ever since then I've been single because every time someone asks me out or I think about asking someone out my mind goes right to that memory and I think about this song. But, that's the big meaning that this song has on my life.
