May 26, 201230songs30days Song #13: Pieces Just Don't Fitby Ben

Today's song was actually requested for an Autism Speaks event. Though I'd never claim to be fully autistic, I was once diagnosed with Asperger's Disease. The symbol for autism is a puzzle piece, and this song is about sometimes missing those "middle pieces" that everyone takes for granted – like being able to tie your shoes or have a normal conversation.

Life is like a puzzle
I'm putting together everyday
And when the pieces fit
Things seem to go my way
But it seems it's always the simple things
That make me want to quit
My puzzle has some holes
And the pieces just won't fit
