Jigsaw

Confusing as a jigsaw 
With just as many pieces 
I’m slowly taking you apart 
Charting the size of your heart

Cause I don’t want to be the 
Cause that makes you heart of ice thaw
Ill sit here like a voyeur 
And watch it all fall apart

Love only works if you work for it
Its like a barter system of feelings
Love is a candle that stays unlit 
Until the guy with the light brings the heeling 

I am only one girl
I have only one mind
You and your problems babe 
Are one of a kind

Twice I asked you to be mine 
And twice you ignored me
Once I thought of you and cried
Because your simply not for me 

Love only works if you work for it 
Its like a barter system of feelings 
Love is a candle that stays unlit 
Until the guy with the light brings the healing

So if you want me
Then tell me
And ill tell you
That I want you too
You’re the jigsaw puzzle baby
And I’ll be the glue
