"Broken" as written by Jake Kennedy and Crispin Hunt....
I'm waiting for you
For I'm broken down
Coming down this time
For my heart lies
Far and away where they took you down
Let them over to your house
Where I'm broken
Down by the people if they let you breathe
Don't give a damn if you still can't see
Still my heart beats, for you
Have become, all I love
And all I hoped for
But I, must carry on
Always one
Never broken
Run to the lobby where I saw you try
Don't give a damn for your reasons why

Where sophie's down in the valley where the church bells cry
I'll lead them over to your eyes
Woah, I am one
I am one
Pray, story eye
Peace and love
In a future
Bright, sacrifice
Came around, never broken
Down by the people if they let you breathe
Don't give a damn if you still can't see
Traveling a street that I did not go
Lifetime to the winter load
Down in the valley where the church bells cry
I'll lead them over to your eyes
Woah, I am one
Woah, I am one
I am one

    General CommentThis song kinda hints that a close friend of his had previously attempted suicide and failed. And he knew about this and wanted to help her.

    Then, she did committed suicide and this is just explaining his feelings about the situation

    General CommentI think that this song is about someone trying to commit suicide 'run in the lobby where I saw you try, don't give a damn about your reasons why' and he doesn't want the person to commit suicide and he doesncare about the reason 'don't give a dam about your reasons why'. He's asking why the person trying to commit suicide is broken but never gets an answer, it was his best friend who commited suicide and he is now shattered but does not want to show this and wants others to stay srtong although he himself is not. And he has to carry on without the person who has commited suicide ' but I Must carry on, always one, never broken' . To sum it up its about his friend commiting suicide but him having to stay strong and carry on for the sake of others

    Song MeaningIn my case it's the lobby line, too, which immediately made me think of suicide.
