  • I see you in the morning
    Feel your fingers in my hair
    Sometimes I still pretend you're there

    It hits me without warning
    Your reflection walking by
    But I know it's only in my mind

    Will you show me the piece of my heart I've been missing?
    Won't you give me the part of myself that I can't get back?
    Will you show me the piece of my heart I've been missing?
    'Cause I'd kill for you
    And darling you know that

    So I'll light up a cigarette
    I'll drink it down 'til there's nothing left
    'Cause I sure can't get no sleep
    And Lord knows there's no relief
    You held my heart in your fingertips
    So now I drown in my bitterness
    Oh, I can't get no sleep
    And I sure won't, I sure won't find no peace
    No peace

    All that I am asking
    Is for a little clarity
    That's all that really matters to me

    In and out of focus
    Tears are in my eyes
    We're burning down the bridges this time

    Will you show me the piece of my heart I've been missing?
    Won't you give me the part of myself that I can't get back?
    Will you show me the piece of my heart I've been missing?
    'Cause I'd kill for you
    And darling you know that

    So I'll light up a cigarette
    I'll drink it down 'til there's nothing left
    'Cause I sure can't get no sleep
    And Lord knows there's no relief
    You held my heart in your fingertips
    So now I drown in my bitterness
    Oh, I can't get no sleep
    And I sure won't, I sure won't find no

    I used to find comfort in your arms
    Caught up in the wonder of your charms
    I'll cry for you, I'll cry for you
    I'd lie for you, I'd lie for you
    But I don't even know you anymore

    So I'll light up a cigarette
    I'll drink it down 'til there's nothing left
    'Cause I sure can't get no sleep
    And Lord knows there's no relief
    You held my heart in your fingertips
    So now I drown in my bitterness
    Oh, I can't get no sleep
    And I sure won't, I sure won't find no peace

    Sure won't find no peace
    Will you give me the piece
    Will you give me the piece of my heart?
    Will you give me the piece
    Will you give me the piece of my heart? Writer/s: Abbey Smith, James Napier, Sam Smith
