"Broken" as written by and Thom Schuyler....
You're a little bit damaged, I'm a sucker for that
Wanna take you in my hands, wanna bring you back

You're a little bit damaged, I'm a sucker for that
Wanna fill up the spaces, and be everything you lack

You're a little bit jaded, and you're closing the door
And all that you felt then, you don't feel it anymore

I'm the picture that's faded, I'm the love you don't trust
Take the girl out from under glass and she'll always want too much

I know… you're just broken
I know… you're just broken, you're just broken

You're a little bit damaged , I'm a sucker for that
So in the moment I lost you, I wanted you back

But that's a feeling that's fading, and I'm closing the door
And all that I felt then, I don't feel it anymore

I know… you're just broken
I know… you're just broken, you're just broken
You're just broken, you're just broken
You're just broken, you're just broken

    General Commenti think this is about a girl who is in love with a boy who is imperfect but she loves that about him because she is also imperfect.

    General Commentit's pretty much about a relationship between two messed up people who don't love each other anymore.

    General Commentbeautiful song. i think a lot of girls and relate to this feeling of knowing a boy that's "broken" and wanting to fill in the emptiness in his life and make him happy again, or "fill up the spaces, be everything you lack."

    My InterpretationI think this happens when you have two people who have been burned in romance and have heavy defenses. She was attracted to him because he was damaged, and the feeling was probably mutual. However, he was leery and his trust was shaken somehow and he shut himself off to her. His act of closing the door shook her trust, and in her mind the dude went from "damaged" to "broken". Their mutual suspiciousness became a self-fulfilling prophesy, and in the aftermath the narrator consoles herself by justifying what happened in labeling him unfit, broken.

    My InterpretationI think this is about a girl who's in love with a boy, but he has been hurt in his past and has issues trusting people. So he pushes her away and she wants him back.
