SONG LYRICS

Piece of Me written by: Jon Nielson
F Dm B♭ C
Something’s reaching out from deep inside me
F Am G Gsus4
A need, a want, a urge that I can’t define
F Dm B♭ C
A desire to make connections with those in my family tree
F Am G Gsus4
who have passed on or are still alive
B♭ C
In my family tree there are
F Dm
Pieces of me
B♭ C F
I see my face in these old photographs
B♭ C
If these pictures could speak
F Dm
The answers to my questions I would seek
B♭ C F
As I reach for connections to my past
F Dm B♭ C
I’m a DNA mosaic of my genealogy
F Am G Gsus4
A unique design of traits that I cannot hide
F Dm B♭ C
That many generations have passed on to me
F Am G Gsus4
I embrace these features with so much pride

B♭ C
In my family tree there are
F Dm
Pieces of me
B♭ C F
I see my face in these old photographs
B♭ C
If these pictures could speak
F Dm
The answer to questions I would seek
B♭ C F
As I reach for connections to my past
B♭ Dm
This ancestry puzzle may be may be tough and long
Gsus4 G
But making new connections is what keeps me going on
B♭ C
Cause In my family tree there are
F Dm
Pieces of me
B♭ C F
I see my face in these old photographs
B♭ C
If these pictures could speak
F Dm
The answers to my question I would seek
B♭ C F
As I reach for connections to my past
B♭ C F
As I reach for connections to my past
