Scattered Pieces

about

A springtime song for you. I'm thinking of the ones who have felt left out for one reason or another, who have had no dance partner, no one to be a good fit with. When the pieces finally fit, life can bloom like spring.

Scattered Pieces

I see you're cornered and you're surrounded
You feel the world closing in
But I am open, I am spaces
I am someplace you've never been
And my edges are different from the others that you see
I have a place for you, no longer we will be

Scattered pieces of a puzzle
Shapes that have no place somehow
Seem to never fit together
Scattered pieces… that fit together now

Your strange lines and your angles
They feel like home to me
They are treasures, they're like diamonds
Locked away secretly
And if my life has shaped me right
If I am your key
We'll unlock each other, no longer we will be

Scattered pieces of a puzzle
Shapes that have no place somehow
Seem to never fit together
Scattered pieces… that make us better
Scattered pieces… complete together
Scattered pieces… we fit together now
