Broken - lovelytheband




The Experience: Every part of us, even the loving ones, are a little broken... No love story is perfect, but there can still be love...

Music video: Broken shifts back and forth between a shy Mitchy Collins and his equally broken love interest following each other around a shadowy party, and the same couple in a bright, happy and prosperous future. It ends as she leaves him... still in the bright future, but dressed just like she was at the party. Just a daydream, a happy future, or a short-lived one-night stand? We don't know.

The Meaning of Broken: You're broken, lonely, and your confidence is wearing off. But so is she and that drives you together - she grabbed my face and that's when she said I like that you're broken broken like me. lovelytheband offers something that is not a love song that we like. We don't want to be broken and maybe that's why there's a wholesome and sweet authenticity to the up front admission that we are. But that authenticity is only a beginning, not a happy ending. A relationship that begins with two broken and lonely and tragic and almost pure people by the bathroom can only make it if we can try to fix our broken pieces one at a time.

Ask yourself: Do you heal together or do you just keep hurting together?

LYRICS:

[MUSIC VIDEO: Life is funny like that. When the dust settles at the end of the day and we've said all we can, we'll realize every part of us, even the loving ones, are a little broken.]

I like that you're broken
Broken like me
Maybe that makes me a fool
I like that you're lonely
Lonely like me
I could be lonely with you

I met you late night, at a party
Some trust fund baby's Brooklyn loft
By the bathroom, you said let's talk
But my confidence is wearing off

These aren't my people
These aren't my friends
She grabbed my face and
That's when she said

I like that you're broken
Broken like me
Maybe that makes me a fool
I like that you're lonely
Lonely like me
I could be lonely with you

There's something tragic, but almost pure
Think I could love you, but I'm not sure
There's something wholesome, there's something sweet
Tucked in your eyes that I'd love to meet

These aren't my people
These aren't my friends
She grabbed my face and
That's when she said

I like that you're broken
Broken like me
Maybe that makes me a fool
I like that you're lonely
Lonely like me
I could be lonely with you

Life is not a love song that we like
We're all broken pieces floating by
Life is not a love song we can try
To fix our broken pieces one at a time

I like that you're broken
Broken like me
Maybe that makes me a fool
I like that you're lonely
Lonely like me
I could be lonely with you
I like that you're broken
Broken like me
Maybe that makes me a fool
I like that you're lonely
Lonely like me
I could be lonely with you
