BROKEN BY LIFEHOUSE

LYRICS

The broken clock is a comfort
It let’s me sleep tonight
Maybe it can stop tomorrow
From stealing all my time
I am here still waiting
I still have my doubts
I am damaged at best
Like you’ve already figured out
I’m falling apart
I’m barely breathing
With a broken heart
That’s still beating
In the pain
There is healing
In your name
I find meaning
So I’m holding on, I’m holdin’ on, I’m holdin’ on
Barely holding on to you
The broken locks were a warning
You got inside my head
Tried my best to be guarded
I’m an open book instead
I still see your reflection
Inside my eyes
That are looking for purpose
There still looking for life
I’m falling apart
I’m barely breathing
With a broken heart
That’s still beating
In the pain (In the pain)
Is there healing
In your name (In your name)
I find meaning
So I’m holding on (I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on
(I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’)
I’m barely holding on to you
Hanging on another day
Just to see what you will throw my way
And I’m hanging on to the words you say
You said that I will, will be OK
Broken light on the freeway
Left me here alone
I may have lost my way now
Haven’t forgotten my way home
I’m falling apart
I’m barely breathing
With a broken heart
That’s still beating
In the pain (In the pain)
There is healing
In your name (In your name)
I find meaning
So I’m holding on (I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on
(I’m still holdin’ on), I’m holdin’ on
(I’m still holdin’)
Barely holding on to you
I’m holding on (I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on
(I’m still holdin’ on), I’m holdin’ on
(I’m still holdin’)
Barley holding on to you

Sad song
taking me to the place of my insight.
The place of morning sadness
After a long night of adulting madness.

Taking candy away from a baby.
“Momma’s child, Daddy’s maybe.”

Insight.
Childlike fright.

I look into the mirror
no bona fide to see
Outside my window
children play fancy free

Little noises run
In voice of sincerity
Reminiscent of
a bona fide in me

Truth contamination
Who knew to see?
Suspended animation
grows passionately

The ways of the turning tides
changes in a raging sea
are the only ones to show
the bona fide in me

I’m broken inside out
Light escaping my eyes
Time always ephemeral
Yours leaving mine.

Such mirrored eyes alone
Shared our smiles
My mind now full of empty
Oblivion knows my name.

Your music unlocked us
Memories made it real
Fragmented without you now
I’ve lost my place in time.

Lost in Time (revised)

I’m broken inside out
Light leaks from my eyes
Time always ephemeral
Yours leaving mine.

Mirrored looks ours alone
Sharing distant smiles
My mind now full of empty
Oblivion knows my name.

Your music unlocked us
Memories made it real
Fragmented without you now
I’ve lost my place in time.

Sombre is the sky
where angels in
conniption rise
they cradle the minds
of innocence defiled to
appease their broken hearts..

onslaught of doubts
roaring upon clouds
rain pours a
crescendo of sobs
blossoms wither
when silence falls.

You left
Me broken
and all I
Feel is shame
But I know
It will help
Me heal
From the chagrin
Do you
Sleep at
Night
Knowing what
You did
Because
I’m barley
Holding on
It’s my breathe
That will save
Me
If I just breathe
I’ll be okay
I don’t want
This pain
So I breathe
