Verse 1

His voice still lingers in my head,

Some good old scars just never fade-

All those days when I starved and binged,

Broke down crying and came unhinged.

All those nights when I'd hate my skin,

I still remember that feeling.

Chorus

When I was thirteen

And was still searching

For The One,

I told myself this-

When you fall down hard and hurt your knees,

Stitch yourself back together, piece by piece.

Verse 2

Some days I find it really strange,

How some people can never change.

He's one of them, with his sick games,

Thinks he's special, oh, what a shame!

He filled my lungs with twisted lies,

I believed them and choked inside.

Chorus

When I was fourteen

And was still hurting

Every day,

I told myself this-

When you fall down hard and hurt your knees,

Stitch yourself back together, piece by piece.

Bridge

And I'll stitch myself together, piece by piece,

Every time with a little more ease,

So go on then,

Tear me again.

Chorus

When I was twenty

And was finally free

From it all, I told myself this-

When you fall down hard and hurt your knees,

Stitch yourself back together, piece by piece.
