"Broken Angel" as written by and Alejandro Luis Manzano Fabian Rafael Manzano....
You showed him all the best of you
But I'm afraid your best
Wasn't good enough
And know he never wanted you
At least not the way
You wanted yourself to be loved
And you feel like you were a mistake
Hes not worth all those tears that won't go away

I wish you could see that
Still you try to impress him
But he never will listen

Oh broken angel
Were you sad when he crushed all your dreams
Oh broken angel
Inside your dying cause you cant believe

And now you've grown up with this notion that you were to blame
And you seem so strong sometimes
But I know that you still feel the same
As that little girl who shined like and angel
Even after his lazy heart put you through hell

I wish you could see that
Still you try to impress him
But he never will listen

Oh broken angel
Were you sad when he crushed all your dreams
Oh broken angel
Inside your dying cause you cant believe
He would leave you alone
And leave you so cold
When you were his daughter
But the blood in your veins
As you carry his name
Turns thinner than water
Your just a broken angel

And I promise that it's not your fault
It was never your fault
And I promise that it's not your fault
It was never your fault

    General CommentThis song is about parental negligence. I was at concert when they played this song, he explained that it was to all the girls that just weren't loved how they deserved to be...

    The father never wanted the daughter, neglected her and didn't show her the proper love he should have as a parent. Even though she strived to be perfect and to impress him daily, he still just wouldn't listen to her. She continues trying to impress him and refuses to see that it won't work, the father just won't listen to her. The dad eventually leaves the daughter, presumably ejecting himself from her life at a young age. She grows up with the reasoning that it was her fault, that if she would've tried harder he would've loved her. Why didn't he love her? What did she do wrong? Casting blame on herself she goes through life with a sadness that is incomprehensible. All because of his lack of care about her, negligence, and generally his cold heart.

    People don't understand how much children need their parents, both of them. And it isn't easy going through life with the loss of either, or even both...the people who have decent parents are very lucky, especially in this day of age. You don't have any idea how much of a gift it is, and you take it for granted.
