Piece by Piece (Clarkson Kelly)

And all I remember is your back Walking towards the airport, leaving us all in your past I traveled fifteen hundred miles to see you Begged you to want me, but you didn't want to But piece by piece he collected me Up off the ground where you abandoned things, yeah Piece by piece he filled the holes That you burned in me at six years old And you know, He never walks away He never asks for money, He takes care of me He loves me Piece by piece he restored my faith That a man can be kind and a father could... stay And all of your words fall flat I made something of myself and now you wanna come back But your love—it isn't free, it has to be earned Back then I didn't have anything you needed so I was worthless But piece by piece he collected me Up off the ground, where you abandoned things, yeah Piece by piece he filled the holes That you burned in me at six years old And you know, He never walks away He never asks for money, He takes care of me 'Cause he loves me Piece by piece he restored my faith That a man can be kind and a father could stay Piece by piece [6x] Piece by piece I fell far from the tree I will never leave her like you left me And she will never have to wonder her worth Because unlike you I'm going to put her first And you know, He'll never walk away, He'll never break her heart He'll take care of things, He'll love her And piece by piece he'll restore my faith That a man can be kind and a father should be great Piece by piece [3x]
