Picking Up Pieces Lyrics - Blue October

Review The Song (1)



I really need to talk with you
I keep stepping on the vein
That keeps my lifeline flowing thru
I wanna be your perfect stick of glue
But I don’t feel perfect at all
Sad and insecure flaw

I find it hard to hold conversations
I get sweaty sick and I wanna walk away
Its not you its strictly me in this situation
But, I’m wondering will it ever go away…just go away, still...

Sometimes I feel like weeping
awake and when I’m sleeping
perfecting how to put a game face on

This puzzle I’ve been keeping
has been in hiding creeping out the closet door
spilling out onto the floor

How long will I be picking up pieces?
How long will I be picking up my heart?

Listen, I’ll be as honest as I feel
I feel like I’m getting more paranoid and I’m hearing things
And they never turn out real
It feels like my heart is made of pure steel
It’s just so heavy all the time

I’m scared of death
And I’m scared of living
I gave up on the past cause it’s unforgiving
I misplaced my trust
I watched my word begin to rust
I’m a balloon about to bust
I need a place for reliving. Still...

Sometimes I feel like weeping
awake and when I’m sleeping
perfecting how to put a game face on
this puzzle I’ve been keeping
has been in hiding creeping out the closet door
spilling out onto the floor

How long will I be picking up pieces?
How long will I be picking up my heart? (repeat x 7)

How long (in another space and time)
Keep picking up pieces in the corner of my mind
How long (its getting oh so hard to find)
Keep picking up pieces in the corner of my mind
But I still walk on

perfect. | Reviewer: paige | 5/23/10

i can so completely relate to this song. i've been depressed for a while now and i was listening to my blue october collection and this song came up. for the first time, i can totally relate. nearly two weeks ago, a boy that i knew committed suicide. i didn't know him all that well, but it definitely hit me hard. i was feeling desperate to cheer up, so i said yes to a guy i didn't really like. i broke up with him two days later and i told him i thought i would be able to manage, but i couldn't. i wanted to be perfect for him and he liked me, but i couldn't lead him on anymore and i felt guilty. it was also hard to talk to him and it wasn't him, it was me, and i was wondering if the pain would ever stop. because of sam, who killed himself, i cried day and night for at least a week, and on one single day, i can remember crying nine different times. my friends and i even started to get into fights over my depression, and i almost lost my good friend dan, so i started to toughen up and try not to vent to people about it, but i couldn't stop thinking about him and i still can't. seeing this happen to someone i knew made me feel more scared of death than ever (because he was only 15) but then i started to cut myself to numb the pain. i’d told myself that i would never stoop that low, but if anyone has ever done it, you know how massive of a relief it is. thanks blue october for a beautiful song. ♥
