I'm just a well dressed bit
I'm just a made up mess
Working hard, trying to keep everybody impressed
All the while I'm falling apart on the inside

I look around to see
Is anyone like me?
First glance tells me I'm all alone in the sea
Then I look again a little deeper

And we're all in the same boat
We all just need to know

We're all broken, we're all broken
And we all need a Savior
Broken, we're all broken
And we all need a Savior
'Cause we're all broken

This is a fool's parade
The way we masquerade
Trying to make everybody think it's all okay
When the truth is we're all living a story

What if we all got brave
Enough to take away
All we're hiding behind even just for a day
And let the scars show even a little?

But I know the honesty
Will show us all to be

Broken, we're all broken
And we all need a Savior
Broken, we're all broken
And we all need a Savior

We don't have to pretend about it
We don't have to keep acting like we're all okay
If we lift our lives to the cross
We'll see some reality

That we're all broken
And we all have a Savior

Broken, we're all broken
And we all need a Savior
Broken, we're all broken
And we all need a Savior
We all have a Savior
We all need Jesus

    That everyone has their own story, their own pain, and maybe we just need to realize that we all hurt, and we should not judge b/c someone else has scars they show

    Every single one of us needs jesus - not one of us is perfect, not one of us in one piece - we're all broken.
