Million Pieces

Chorus:
They all fall
Like a million raindrops
Falling from a blue sky
Kissing your cares goodbye
They all fall
Like a million pieces
A tickertape parade high
Now you’re free to fly

Carryin’ a millstone malaise
It’s been pulling down your gaze
You pound the pavement
It don’t give or care
This weight ain’t yours to bear

Why you holdin’ grudges in old jars?
Why you wanna show off all your scars?
What’s it gonna take to lay a few burdens down?
It’s a beautiful sound

(Chorus)

When that muffled sigh
Says you’re barely getting by
Cut your burdens loose and just simplify, simplify

This is not your floor
You’re going higher than before
Drop the weight now
Wait for the lookout guide
Look outside as

(Chorus)

You’ve gotta lay them burdens down
You’re gonna lay them burdens down
You gotta drop them burdens in a pyre
Set a bonfire

‘Cause when you lay your burdens down
When you lay your burdens down
When you drop them burdens
What a free-fall
What a thrill
Bury them all
In a landfill

Do-do, do-do, do-do, do-do

(Chorus)

Oh, lay your burdens down
Kiss your cares goodbye
Now you’re free to fly
Free to fly
