(Like a) Jigsaw is a bouncy, rocking tune that tells a mindful story: "My life's in pieces like a jigsaw", goes the chorus. Guitarists will be interested to know that the heavy, overdriven guitar sound was obtained using nylon strings, not steel.

Verse 1
My boss he called me over just the other day,

Ten bucks! Shit outta luck
I'm looking' for a better way.
Bartender, bring me a drink, 'cause I never wanna feel again!

Chorus

Bridge 2
Nowhere to go

Nowhere to be (repeat)

Riff
Chorus
(What a shame - that my)
My life's in pieces like a jigsaw
Ooh-ooh-ooh, like a jigsaw (repeat)
My life's in pieces like a jigsaw
Ooh-ooh-ooh, like a...
Ooh - jigsaw!
Ooh - jigsaw!
Ooh - jigsaw!

Bridge 1
Why was I so blind? Why I could not find
Jigsaw!
