Picking Up The Pieces

This song is by Deniece Williams and appears on the album Let's Hear It For The Boy (1984).

Say you want to drown
Drown in your tears
Say there's been too many heartaches
Through the years, my dear
But the spirit deep inside
Is calling out your name
It says, "just you hold on
Hang on, help is on the way"

Start picking up the pieces
Start picking up the pieces

Life is just a game
The game of strategy
You can play to win or lose
Play it fair or play it to cheat
It's all up to you
It's all up to you, yes, it is, yeah

Mm-hmm
La, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la

Well, every time you fall
From the weight of the world
It just gives you one more chance
To stand real tall, yes, sir
'Cause the spirit deep inside
Says, "don't you be no fool
It's just as easy to win at life
As it is to lose"

Start picking up the pieces of your life
Start picking up the pieces
(Of life, yeah)

But life is just a game
The game of strategy
You can play to win or lose
Play it fair or play it to cheat
It's all up to you
(You can make it)
It's all up to you
(Oh-oh-oh, you can make it)

La, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
Mm-hmm
La, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la

I said, life is just a game
The game of strategy
You can play to win or lose
Play it fair or play it to cheat
It's all up to you
(You can make it)
It's all up to you
(Oh-oh-oh, you can make it)

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...

Start picking up the pieces of your life, yeah
Start picking up the pieces
'Cause you're a winner and I know you are, yeah
Start picking up the pieces
It's your life, you can do what you want to, yeah
Start picking up the pieces
(Uh-huh)
Start picking up the pieces
'Cause you're a winner, yeah, yeah, yeah
Start picking up the pieces
Every day is a new day, yeah
Start picking up the pieces...
