"Beautifully Broken" as written by and Ashlee/dioguardi Simpson....
Mysterious
Blown in with the night
All this beauty captured in a frame
Visibly shaken but never stirred
Drives them insane
I see the way she plays her men, and I know I've got to know her name

She's so beautifully broken
Shaped by the wind
Dangerously twisted
Here I go again

I see the way she casts her spell
It's like drowning in moonlight
Discards them when she's done
They're lost in her twilight
I watch her move from star to star and I wonder why
Why it feels so right

She's so beautifully broken
You can barely see the flaw
Especially from a distance
Which is always how I fall

Why do I fall for the dangerous ones
The ones that never learned to let go
And why do I lie to myself and pretend that I can break her
When she's already been so beautifully broken

Why do I fall for the dangerous ones
The ones that don't know how to let go
And why do I lie to myself and pretend that I can break her
When she's already been so beautifully broken

She's so beautifully broken, shaped by the wind
Dangerously twisted
Here I go again
Here I go again

    General CommentThis is another HBO "True Blood" soundtrack song. This is played during scenes with Arlene, Tara and Jessica, who are all troubled women. The song is about a man knowing he can't break a strong woman who's already toughened up and jaded [from life experience]. He sees that she plays men [or rather that she can't be played] but he can't seem to break himself away. Knowing she's dangerous and he can't break her, he still can't stop being drawn to her (she is beautiful yet strong) so he says "Here I go again".
