Fallen Pieces

lyrics

when I set out
on a journey of my own creation
I wished to stand beyond
the walls I created inside myself
and now I've got to get back to myself

and all at once
you watch them crumble before your eyes.

disregard their broken dreams,
they will sell most anything.
so take a step back,
this is your relationship.

go tell it on the boulevard,
when you have met the queen of hearts
singing 'what you have loved
is yours for keeps.'

Oh, Chelsea Waves
what rang though your heart
and your mind when you decided on change?
and just how quickly we've figured out what we are:

we're fallen pieces from the stars.

you got them traveling shoes,
singing them poor boy blues
with not much more than a shirt on your back.
but I learned the difference
between the have and the have-nots is what?
who has got their love,
and who is lost in the wake of it all.

disregard their broken dreams,
they will sell most anything.
so take a step back,
this is your relationship.

go tell it on the boulevard,
when you have met the queen of hearts
singing what you have loved
is yours for keeps.

Oh, Chelsea Waves
what rang though your heart
and your mind when you decided on change.
just how quickly we've figured out what we are:

we're fallen pieces from the stars

when I met you,
I learned a new side of myself
maybe it was a reflection from your eyes
shining back through my own.

and all at once,
it became quite clear to me
that these pieces we call ourselves
may they shine for what we are,

fallen pieces from the stars,
may we shine for what we are.
