Lyrics

Broken

Written By: Andrew Mockler

Tell me you want me and tell me you need me,
Tell me you love me right now,
Tell me you trust me and tell me you'll hold me,
But tell me you love me somehow,

You are broken,
You were broken from the start,
You are broken,
You are breaking down your parts,

If you wake up cold,
If you can't let go,
If your heart don't know I will be there,

I have been waiting and I have been hoping,
I have been loving you now,
Well since I've been crying you know I've been praying,
And waiting for you somehow,

You are broken,
You were broken from the start,
You are broken,
I am fixing up your parts,

If you wake up cold,
If you can't let go,
If your heart don't know I will be there,

From the moment that you walked right into my life,
I knew in that instance we would be alright,
Everything that you have given to me,
I know I will always believe,

Ask me to want you,
Ask me to need you,
Ask me to love you I will,

I am broken,
I am broken just like you,
We are broken,
We are broken through and through,

If you wake up cold,
If you can't let go,
If your heart don't know,
I will be there waiting for you,
If you wake up cold I will be there,
