Why do you call yourself broken? Why do you seek sympathy? When you're the cause And yours is the effect? Why do you say you're strong? Why do you call them weak? All you have is pride Even when you're down.

Brokenness.

There's no beauty in brokenness. Ever seen a broken glass Put together again? Ever seen a broken heart Love somebody the same? Change is inevitable, darling; Nothing stays like it was before; Whatever does is an illness, needing a cure.

Here.
