Paloma Faith – Picking Up The Pieces lyrics
Do you think of her
When you're with me
Repeat those memories you made together
Who's face do you see?
Do you wish I was a bit more like her?
Am I too loud, I play the clown,
To cover up all these doubts.

Perfect heart, she's flawless
She's the over women, shining in,
Her spendlor, you were lost

Now she's gone
And I'm picking up the pieces
I watch you cry
But you don't see that I'm the one by your side
Cause she's gone,
In her shadow is it me you see?
Cause all that's left is you and I
And I'm picking up the pieces
She left behind

I found her photograph
Behind the tv
You look so happy, are you missing the way it used be?
And I have changed this room around
More often lately
It's clear that me and these four walls
Still know it's hers and yours

Perfect heart, she's flawless
She's the over women, shining in,
Her spendlor, you were lost

Now she's gone
And I'm picking up the pieces
I watch you cry
But you don't see that I'm the one by your side
Cause she's gone,
In her shadow is it me you see?
Cause all that's left is you and I
And I'm picking up the pieces
She left behind

Are we liars
In denial
Are we smoke without the fire
Tell me please, is this worth it
I deserve it

Now she's gone
And I'm picking up the pieces
I watch you cry
But you don't see that I'm the one by your side
Cause she's gone,
In her shadow is it me you see?
Cause all that's left is you and I
And I'm picking up the pieces
She left behind

    Its about a woman in love with a mad, he is still hurting from a failed relationship but instead of waiting to get over it he is insecure and believes that going with another woman will stop the pain, but instead he can only see her faults and ends up lashing out at her. He just ignors her untill he needs her, he just makes an effort when it benefits him.
