Lyrics

Piece Of Me

Written By: Harbour Grace

I feel it coming down again
It’s creeping through my being
To strip away the will within
And shading all I’m seeing

It’s torn inside
And it waits for me
Left behind
Is a piece of me

Rewind could I be the same
To live a life and not be ashamed
To live a lie is the only way
Pretend I’m fine
Gets me through the day

It’s torn inside
And it waits for me
Left behind
Is a piece of me
Left to hide
Lie in wait
Terrified of the choices that I’m going to make

Solo

Chorus

I feel it coming down again
