Pieces of Me - Lori McKenna

I have been a poet all my life
With really not too much to say
So you can push me anywhere you like
But you can't push me away

My life is written down on papers in my room
And yours is bottled up somewhere
So I'll send you letters from half across the moon
And it will cross your mind but you won't dare

Pieces of me can't help you
Pieces of me can't let you fall down
Where you want to be

I can hold you like water in my hands
Yet you say that you can't leave
But I am dripping wet with things to understand
And you are trying to believe

Pieces of me can't help you
Pieces of me can't let you fall down
Where you want to be

Tired arms can't pull the sun back in the sky
Angry hearts can't remember why they even try

I have been a poet all my life
With really not too much to say
You can push me anywhere you like
But I won't let you push me
Down, where you want to be
Oh down, where you want to be
