if were all a little broken, none of us can truly be...

lyrics

I wanna share the world with everybody I know
And I wanna show the world every thought that I can grow,
But when I break, I start to shake, and my senses are shattered,
A single tear represents fear as it grows, it falls and splatters

She holds out her arms and let's me right in,
She holds out the heart, that seems to be just as broken,
She tells me without words that she will always be open,
She insists, with laugh, "hey friend,
You're not broken"

i say i don’t believe you, and she says “look at me”
so I look her in the face, and she’s as broken as me,
she leans in and she tells me that she feels what I feel,
that she sees whats in me, and she knows that its real,

she takes me by the hand and takes me to a place,
she says its quiet here, we have some time to retrace,
start from the top and put me in your point of view,
tell me all your demons and all of what you’re going through,

and still i rebel, i say my demons are my own,
i say that i can surely cope, and i can handle it on my own,
she looks me in the eye, and we both know i can’t,
so ill spill all of my insides and start my silly rant,

Im a mess, and i don’t know what I’m doing anymore
i start out on the bed and then ill end up on the floor,
i feel broken and i feel alone without my door open,
it makes no sense for you to say those words “you’re not broken”

I wanna share the world with everybody I know
And I wanna show the world every thought that I can grow,
But when I break, I start to shake, and my senses are shattered,
A single tear represents fear as it grows, it falls and splatters

She holds out her arms and let's me right in,
She holds out the heart, that seems to be just as broken,
She tells me without words that she will always be open,
She insists, with laugh, "hey friend,
You're not broken"

A close look at the phrase, not long but the meaning,
A meaning so fleeting, that believing is retreating,
But still she persists, and she's so sure of those words,
It seems as if it hurts that I won't accept those words of hers

I have good reason, because they're words I tell myself,
Words I thought would surely help, if i administer a shrill yelp, 
Because it becomes unbearable this unshakable pain,
Like a reposition and my mind is what's being reclaimed

But the eyes tell the truth, and hers, though they shine, they don't lie,
I see it in her eyes, and those eyes,hard they try,
Prying at my eyes just to get me to see, 
If we're all a little broken, none of us can truly be

I ask her will you stay awake and help me with this thing,
Because I can't do it alone, and your words, with me they ring,
She says, let's make a club,
One for us to find the answer,
It'll be our little club, combat our struggles with laughter. 

I wanna share the world with everybody I know
And I wanna show the world every thought that I can grow,
But when I break, I start to shake, and my senses are shattered,
A single tear represents fear as it grows, it falls and splatters

She holds out her arms and let's me right in,
She holds out the heart, that seems to be just as broken,
She tells me without words that she will always be open,
She insists, with laugh, "hey friend,
You're not broken"
