Lifehouse – Broken lyrics

The broken clock is a comfort, it helps me sleep tonight
Maybe it can stop tomorrow from stealing all my time
I am here still waiting though I still have my doubts
I am damaged at best, like you've already figured out

I'm falling apart, I'm barely breathing
With a broken heart that's still beating
In the pain there is healing
In your name I find meaning
So I'm holdin' on, I'm holdin' on, I'm holdin' on
I'm barely holdin' on to you

The broken locks were a warning you got inside my head
I tried my best to be guarded, I'm an open book instead
And I still see your reflection inside of my eyes
That are looking for purpose, they're still looking for life

I'm falling apart, I'm barely breathing
With a broken heart that's still beating
In the pain is the healing
In your name I find meaning
So I'm holdin' on (I'm still holdin'), I'm holdin' on (I'm still holdin'), I'm holdin' on (I'm still holdin')
I'm barely holdin' on to you

I'm hangin' on another day
Just to see what you will throw my way
And I'm hangin' on to the words you say
You said that I will, will be ok

The broken lights on the freeway left me here alone
I may have lost my way now, having forgot my way home

I'm falling apart, I'm barely breathing
With a broken heart that's still beating
In the pain, there is healing
In your name, I find meaning
So I'm holdin' on (I'm still holdin'), I'm holdin' on (I'm still holdin'), I'm holdin' on (I'm still holdin')
I'm barely holdin' on to you
I'm holdin' on (I'm still holdin'), I'm holdin' on (I'm still holdin'), I'm barely holdin' on to you

    "Broken" is more than a song title, it's a feeling that is depicted perfectly. It tells about hardships humans go through periodically throughout their life, while explaining that there will always be someone to put you back together when you're "falling apart." "Broken" doesn't specify who "You" is; this allows your imagination to decipher whether it's God, a family member, or someone you love. As long as it's someone in your life worth "holding on" for, perseverance will not be a dilemma. The remark "The broken clock is a comfort, it helps me sleep tonight" tells us that it's better to fool ourselves into believing that time has stopped rather than to continue being broken. This remark is also used to contrast with the following remark stating "In the pain there is healing. In your name I find meaning" telling us that every cloud if not silver, has at the least a bronze lining.
    Woohoo Lee (:

    I real love this song it majes me cry. It was in the time travler's wife movie (in the trailor) at the very end whenn clare was like "i wouldn't change one second of our life together" and the thought of waiting and waiting for someone you love to come for you and how crazzy desitney works out. And little did I know that cry were rolling down my face. It's one of those songgs if you just listen to you'll start crying and wont know why. Yeah it's just one of those things that make life worthwhile.

    Kay so this song means everything tooo meee, no joke, it explains everything. Guys realize what you have. Just know you can't get everything. Love what you have, and for you girls don't go crying over a guy becyase they arent worth your tears and when you find someone that is, they wont make you cry [: seriously though, guys arent worth your tears just know, your better than to do that. And hes dumb for doing that to you[: and that your beautiful, I don't care what everyone says about you girls, every single indivual one of you are beautiful. Theres always something about someone that makes them pretty or beautiful, you don't have to impress every guy in the girl or impress any guy but you are beautiful and don't let anyone tell you other wise, because theyre stupid, and you don't just have to be drop dead gorgeous but you can be beautiful on the inside too. But just know keep your head high and that you are a beautiful in atleast one type of way.[:

    "I took a trip out to Nashville, Tenn. This was actually the last song to make it on the record. I flew out to Nashville with no other intention than to see my friend, who is on a dialysis machine everyday. He basically needs another kidney. He’s going through a second kidney transplant. It broke my heart to see him like that and basically inspired me all at the same time. I hung out with him that day, and I went back to my hotel room, and I was really restless. I just couldn’t sleep. It was one of those songs I really look forward to writing, because it almost wrote itself. I woke up at three in the morning, and I just got out the hotel paper, and I just started writing. It basically happened in 15 minutes, and I hadn’t written a song like that, that happened that fast, since Hanging by a Moment." -Jason Wade.
    That's what the song means. As the writer said himself.

    This song right here explains alot. I'm a girl so I've had my heart broken before. But I tell myself that it wasnt worth the pain going through. Right now my life is the best ever because I left my past and moved on to my future. This is one of my favortie songs ever. You see all of these young teenagers walking down the halls of school with alll of these sad faces and just think whats going on inside of them. They have a broken heart. I try my best to live my life to the fullest and move along. But there is a million songs out there that actually breaks me down into tears. This is a really good song and I love it.
