Jack Johnson – Broken lyrics

With everything ahead of us, we left
Everything behind
But nothin that we needed at least
Not at this time and now
The feelin that I'm feelin, well
Is feelin like my life is finally mine
And with nothin to go back to
We just continue to drive

Without you I was broken
But I'd rather be broke down with you by my side
Said without you I was broken
But I'd rather be broke down with you by my side

I didn't know what I was lookin for so I
Didn't know what I'd find
I didn't know what I was missin I guess
Youd been just a little too kind
And if I find just what I need
Put a little peace in my mind
Maybe you been lookin too
Or maybe you don't even need to try

Without you I was broken
But I'd rather be broke down with you by my side
Said without you I was broken
But I'd rather be broke down with you by my side

(instrumental interlude)

With everything in the past
Fadin faster and faster until it was gone
Found out I was losin so much more
Than I knew all along

But everything I been workin for
Only worth nickels and dimes
But if I had a minute for every hour that I wasted
Id be rich and kind
Id be doin fine

Without you I was broken
But I'd rather be broke down with you by my side
Said without you I was broken
But I'd rather be broke down with you by my side

Without you I was broken
But I'd rather be broke down with you by my side
Said without you I was broken
But I'd rather be broke down with you by my side

    This is really a beautiful song. I don't care that the first time I heard it was on Curious George. It reminds me so much of Evan [and old best friend]. Because without him I felt really broken, and whenever I felt so horrible. Well. I loved having him by my side. And the whole reason I don't have him anymore was my fault. I never realized how much he did for me or how much I was missing once he was gone. To me, this songs is a reminder of that situation and I know that with the song, I'm not going to make the same mistakes.
