Why Knot Design

Pieces


I remember you so innocent and young
Reveling in the day’s life had just begun
Seeing and feeling the wonder in everything
Your laughter and dance the gifts you bring
Taken from this world you never grew to sin
And somehow I know I will meet you again
Hey child I hope someday you will see
There are pieces of you that make up the puzzle that is me
I don’t know if you changed or fulfilled my destiny
We are different parts of the same mystery
Living forever in each others memories


Sitting there in her rocking chair
Her soft blue eyes and her silvery hair
If you listen to her you can travel through time
She smiles and she rocks as she drifts in her mind
There is wisdom and answers in the lines on her face
She has shared so many tales of another place
Thanks tired woman for satisfying my curiosity
Now you are a piece of the puzzle that is me
I don’t know if you changed or fulfilled my destiny
Each of us a part of the same mystery
Living forever we are in each others memories


Yea girl we swam in a sea of uncertainty
Shared dreams fears and insecurities
When I said I didn’t love you I meant mys
Another chapter in the book of life upon my shelf
I was lost in the storm of so many lies
When all the truth I ever needed was in your eyes
I hope you are everything you ever wanted to be
You are so many pieces of the puzzle that is me
I don’t know if you changed or fulfilled my destiny
You know we’re different parts of the same mystery
Forever ingrained in each other’s memories


A man in the streets told me I was one of the chosen ones
Said in the end we’ll all return where we are from
He already found the PEACE that made him whole
Then he reached into my thoughts and took away the pain
At that moment the sky opened up as it began to rain


You are no longer a stranger to me
Leaving behind the pieces that set me free
Leading me down a path towards my destiny
We’re all parts of the same mystery
Everything we are is pieces of memories
