Bring Me To Tears ....



I always liked Kelly ... she was my favorite on season one of American Idol and each week she was impressive with her range and her power and her voice.

This, the last season of Idol Kelly returned to judge and then sing a little ...

Once again, she won the show with a song about her father abandoning her and her husband putting her back together ... I cried watching it last night and cried again this morning when I showed it to Carlos.

Breath.Taking.
Piece by Piece
And all I remember is your back
Walking towards the airport leaving us all in your past
I traveled 1500 miles to see you
Begged you to want me
But you didn't want to

But piece by piece you collected me
Up off the ground but you abandoned things
And piece by piece you filled the holes that you burned in me
At six years old and no
He never walks away
He never asks for money
He takes care of me
He loves me
Piece by piece
He restored my faith
That a man can be kind
And a father could stay

And all of your words fall flat
I made something of myself and now you wanna come back
But your love isn't free
It has to be earned
Back then I didn't have anything you needed
So I was worthless

But piece by piece you collected me
Up off the ground but you abandoned things
And piece by piece you filled the holes that you burned in me
At six years old and no
He never walks away
He never asks for money
He takes care of me
He loves me
Piece by piece
He restored my faith
That a man can be kind
And a father could stay

Piece by piece...
Piece by piece I fell far from the tree
I would never leave her like you left me
She will never have to wonder her worth
Because unlike you I'm gonna put her first
He'll never walk away
He'll never break her heart
He'll take care of things
He'll love her
Piece by piece
He restored my faith
That a man can be kind
And a father should be great

Piece by piece...

And it is no wonder when we deal with children in the schools this is often the case.

Imagine how beautiful the world would be if each child felt precious and safe.

Love Kelly Clarkson!

Kelly's Dad is sure sorry now. That song moved me to tears as well & I am not familiar with Ms. Clarkson's work. -checked out more of her clips on YouTube & she seems to be a smart, level-headed & supremely talented person.
