If weakness is a wound that no one wants to speak of
Then "cool" is just how far we have to fall
And I am not immune, I only want to be loved
But I feel safe behind the firewall

Can I lose my need to impress?
If you want the truth I need to confess

[Chorus:]
I'm not alright, I'm broken inside, broken inside
And all I go through, it leads me to you, it leads me to you

Burn away the pride
Bring me to my weakness
Till everything I hide behind is gone
When I'm open wide with nothing left to cling to
Only you are there to lead me on
Cuz honestly, I'm not that strong

[Chorus:]
I'm not alright, I'm broken inside, broken inside
And all I go through, it leads me to you, it leads me to you

And I move
And I move
And I move
Closer to you [x4]

[Chorus:]
I'm not alright, I'm broken inside, broken inside
Oooohh, Broken inside, broken inside
And all I go through, leads me to you, leads me to you

I'm not alright [x3]
That's why I need you.
