"Jigsaw Falling Into Place" is a song by the English band Radiohead and is the penultimate on their 2007 album In Rainbows. The song was released as the first single from In Rainbows on 14 January 2008, following the album's "standard" physical release on December 31, 2007. The song was previously known as "Open Pick", a title it was given provisionally when it was performed during Radiohead's 2006 tour. The song has spent several weeks as one of the 100-most-played songs on US modern rock radio, so far peaking at #69,[4] receiving more support than any other In Rainbows song with the exception of "Bodysnatchers", which has hit #8 on the Billboard Modern Rock Chart[5], and House of Cards which has peaked at #48 The track reached #30 in the UK singles chart on its first week of release, their lowest ranking chart entry since "Lucky" in 1995. However, "Jigsaw" was the first Radiohead single since the band's inception not to be released through EMI-controlled Parlophone, their former major record label. The single was instead released in the UK by independent label XL Records. Time magazine named "Jigsaw Falling Into Place" one of The 10 Best Songs of 2007, ranking it at #5. Writer Josh Tyrangiel praised the song’s “tightness” whose rise in intensity he likened to a three-act play, and described the song as “a journey through flirtation, consummation and regret [that] gets about as close as you can to summing up a doomed relationship in four minutes.”

Jigsaw Falling Into Place - Radiohead

Just as you take my hand
Just as you write my number down
Just as the drinks arrive
Just as they play your favourite song
As your bad day disappears
No longer wound up like a spring
Before you've had too much
Come back and focus again

The walls abandon shape
You've got a cheshire cat grin
All blurring into one
This place is on a mission
Before the night owl
Before the animal noises
Closed circuit cameras
Before you're comatose

Before you run away from me
Before you're lost between the notes
The beat goes round and round
The beat goes round and round
I never really got there
I just pretended that I had

Words are blunt instruments
Words are a sawed off shotguns

Come on and let it out
Come on and let it out
Come on and let it out
Come on and let it out

Before you run away from me
Before you're lost between the notes
Before you take my mic
Just as you dance, dance, dance

Jigsaws falling into place
There is nothing to explain
You eye each other as you pass
She looks back, you look back
Not just once
Not just twice
Wish away the nightmare
Wish away the nightmare
You've got a light you can feel it on your back
You've got a light and you can feel it on your back
Jigsaws falling into place
