"song for the broken" as written by and Alyssa Katherine/barlow Barlow....
I am the comfortable secure
The definition of this western world
And I have perfected deceit
Even I believe I am above saving
And I'll never let You see

I am the broken
I am the bruised
I am the poor ones
I have been used

It takes me falling to the ground
To admit to fully needing You
Then when I'm breathing my last breath
Come and save me, I will cry to You
'Cause pride has not let me say

I am the broken
I am the bruised
I am the poor ones
I have been used

Why does it take so much to bring me to my knees?
Why does it take so much pain for me to see?
If strength is only found when I am on my knees
Why is it so hard to show that I am weak?

I am the broken
I am the bruised
I am the poor ones
I have been used

    General CommentShe/he is is comfy in the eyes of the western world, but believes she can't be saved, adn doesn't want to let God see she/he isn't perfect.
    This song is also like that bible verse...."For when I am weak, then I am strong."(2 cor 12-10) - "this strength is only found when i am on my knees"
    and he/she realises that it took for her to be in real need before giving up her pride and letting go of her life and giving it to God - "cuz pride has not let me say,
    i am the broken
    i am the bruised
    i am the poor ones
    i am the used"

    General CommentThe lyrics are a little wrong ^_^ She says "I have been used" not "I am the used"
