and broken
still going down
what can lift me up?
how can I be brought out of hell?

I know they say you're stronger after
but whatever, I'm still feeling
broken and torn apart
where's my gold?

falling down
like rain forever
when will it be over?
can it be stopped ever?

love is gone, disappeared completely
no one will love me at all
or they're forever gone
can't someone care?
just this once?

be gentle
with me, I'm broken
and trying to find a way to heal
can't someone help me find a way out?
or are they just as broken as me and looking for me to care?

I've been too lost inside myself since before I can remember
I didn't realize any needs other than my own
their want of me to see them and to care
can't someone help us through this?
or is the whole world broken?
