Maybe it's my age or simply the company I keep, but I do seem to lose a little bit of me somewhere everyday these days, and once lost they are gone forever: I'm terminally depleting. The song has Beatle influences I suppose...

Maybe it's my age or simply the company I keep, but I do seem to lose a little bit of me somewhere everyday these days, and once lost they are gone forever: I'm terminally depleting. The song has Beatle influences I suppose due to them being just about the only band I listened to from being 16 to 25 (What kind of songs do I write? I write both kinds: Lennon AND McCartney - er...I wish!).

Over a Sonic Stop drum loop I added bass and acoustic guitars (both tuned down a semi-tone - the D string on the acoustic was then tuned up a tone for the chorus riff), then added cellos and violins, some synthy sounds, harpsicord, percussion, lots of harmonies, and a lead vocal or two ... oh, I put some 'falling apart' sound effects on the intro for a bit of humour, hoping to lighten up a potentially depressing theme.
Lyrics
Chorus1
I'm falling apart, coming unsewn,
Unstitched, unhinged, to bits;
It takes all of my strength and time
To keep body and mind together.

Tag
I'm in pieces,
I'm in pieces,
I'm in pieces.

Verse 1
You drive me to the edge
And you push me through the pain,
'Til the grating teeth of grinding gears
Of a love that should have lasted years
Finally give in:
Ok, you win, you win!
Old panels and parts for broken hearts
As I turn to scrap again... oh oh oh

Chorus2
I'm falling apart, coming unsewn,
Unstitched, unhinged, to bits;
It takes all of my strength and time
To keep body and mind together.
I'm falling apart, flaking like rust
Into dust, brush up all the bits;
It's taking all my strength and time
To keep body and mind together -
Hope I have the strength this time
To keep body and mind together...

Tag
I'm in pieces,
I'm in pieces,
I'm in pieces...

Verse 2
You burn me with your eyes
And you cut me with your tongue,
Undo me with your lies
And you break me up for fun
As you beat me with his name;
I see the world in shades of grey.
My hands are numb, my lips are dumb
And my tears wash me away... oh oh oh

Chorus3
I'm falling apart, coming unsewn,
Unstitched, unhinged, to bits;
It takes all of my strength and time
To keep body and mind together.

Hope I have the strength this time
To keep body and mind together...

Tag
I'm in pieces,
I'm in pieces,
I'm in pieces...
