Picking Up The Pieces
Kind of tricky song, and this is my first tab...so be "gentle" I guess. The Prechorus is a little sketchy, but it's right with the music. Capo on 1 INTRO - |: Bb-C :| Verse: F C I really need to talk with you Dm I keep stepping on the vein Bb That keeps my lifeline flowing through. F C I wanna be your perfect stick of glue Dm But I don't feel perfect at all, A Sad and insecure flaw F C I find it hard to hold conversation Dm Bb I get sweaty, sick, and I wanna walk away F C It's not you, this is strictly me in this situation Dm I'm wondering will it ever go away? Just go away... PRE-CHORUS Bb Sometimes I feel like weeping A Awake and when I'm sleeping Abm F Perfecting how to put a game face on Bb This puzzle I've been keeping A Has been in hiding creeping Abm A Out the closet door, spilling out onto the floor; CHORUS F C Dm Bb F C Dm Bb How long will I be picking up the pieces? F C Dm Bb ... C How long will I be picking up my heart? VERSE F C I'll be as honest as I feel Dm I'm getting more paranoid, and I'm hearing things Bb F And they never turn out real. C It feels like my heart is made of pure steel, Dm It's just so heavy all the time. (little interlude here, obviously) F C Yea I'm scared of death, I'm scared of living Dm Bb I gave up on the past 'cause it was unforgiving F I misplaced my trust, C Watched my words begin to rust, Dm I'm a balloon about to bust Bb I need a place for reliving still - CHORUS 2 F C Dm How long in another place in time, Bb F C Dm Bb Picking up the pieces in the corner of my mind? F C Dm How long, living oh so hard to find, Bb F C Dm Bb Picking up the pieces in the corner of my mind? Ends with "Whoa's" and "I still walk on / I wake up every morning," using the same chords and timing from the chorus. Enjoy, rate and comment if there are problems.
