Piece By Piece

Album: One Breath (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Calvi explained the song's meaning to NME: "This song is made up of pieces of a memory that gets deconstructed, and by the end of the song they're incomprehensible. It's about forgetting someone, which is really sad, but then if it's a bad memory, it can be a really good thing."
  • The song's music video was filmed in just one take by London-based writing and directing duo Mathy & Fran (Kodaline's "One Day"). The clip focuses on Calvi and her guitar playing.
