about

"Broken" about first real love and heartbreak. A coming of age story between two young lovers that leaves them broken but also acquainted with the great beauty of love for the first time. They are star crossed and the relationship will almost certainly end just like the world will. They both lose their innocence in love but also life. A sort of fatalistic view of the world is born out of this broken and beautiful love... “I won’t fear the darkness, because I’ve seen it” - when we are young, heartbreak often feels like the darkest thing, the world is ending.

lyrics

I drove to the edge
Where we used to sit and watch the city lights
Like fallen stars
Way below us
People tried to know us
But we were way too high
Way too high
It was a coming of age
Now I have pieces missing
And you, you are broken
Broken, it’s beautiful to me
Things lose their magic in the daylight
The sun comes like a thief
To steal our love away
We knew we couldn’t stay
If this world begins to end
I won’t fear the darkness Because I’ve seen it
Lying on my back
Looking up at the black sky
With a thousand silver eyes Staring into me
It was a coming of age
Now I have pieces missing
And you, you are broken
Broken, it’s beautiful to me
Things lose their magic in the daylight
The sun comes like a thief
To steal our love away
We knew we couldn’t stay
