Lyrics:

Pieces of Love

Verse 1:
When I was young, I wrote a poem about socks
One about chocolate, one about pencils, one about clocks
And I wrote a poem about cherry trees in the spring
And one about pieces of love

Chorus
Pieces of love were everywhere
In nook and cranny, on shelf and stair
As I found each one, I began to see
That it was you who gave them to me

V2
When I started to write my own tune
Sitting on the dog house, singing to the moon
Sometimes I lay on the drive in the middle of the night
And wrote about pieces of love

Chorus

Bridge:
It was you who read every word
It was you who listened and heard
If I needed to be alone, you let me be
It was you who understood me.

V3
If I wrote a new song and played it for you
You listened with your eyes closed, and didn't speak 'til I was through
As my song came to an end
the first thing you said was…ok, now play it again.

Chorus 2x

(The song is based on this poem that I wrote when I was 12)

A place where love is everywhere
In nook and cranny on shelf and stair
There's laughter on the second floor
A touch of glory by the door
A bit of romance in my parents' room
A scrap of sorrow where we keep the broom
Gobs of excitement here and there
A pinch of fun by the rocking chair
Chunks of caring wherever you roam
That's where I live and I call it home
