Torn To Pieces

  • Here I sit all alone like an airplane
    On the edge of a sky full of solid gray
    Staring at the ceiling, tell me that I'm dreaming
    Oh, I wish you were here today
    All these days I know I'll never get back
    All these words I know I wish I should've said
    All these dreams that we had now fade to black
    Try to wash it away

    I'm torn to pieces, I'm broken down
    I still see your face when you're not around
    I sit here in misery wondering if I'll ever be
    Half the man you wanted me to be

    Here I float through the air like a waterfall
    Than I sink to the bottom like a cannonball
    Having trouble breathing, suddenly I'm screaming
    Why wasn't I good enough
    Even though I know you're not gonna come back
    I can't wash it away

    I'm torn to pieces, I'm broken down
    I still see your face when you're not around
    I sit here in misery wondering if I'll ever be
    Half the man you wanted me to be

    I'm torn to pieces, I'm broken down
    I still see your face when you're not around
    I sit here in misery wondering if I'll ever be
    Half the man you wanted me to be

    It's tearing me to pieces
    Tearing me to pieces
    It's tearing me to pieces
    Tearing me to pieces

    Even though I know you're not gonna come back
    I can't wash it away

    I'm torn to pieces, I'm broken down
    I still see your face when you're not around
    I sit here in misery wondering if I'll ever be
    Half the man you wanted me to be

    I'm torn to pieces, I'm broken down
    (I'm torn to pieces)
    I still see your face when you're not around
    (I'm torn to pieces)
    I sit here in misery wondering if I'll ever be
    Half the man you wanted me to be Writer/s: DAVE BASSETT
