lyrics

BROKEN SMILE

so this is living
what would you say?
this place where everyone hopes there's another way
than seek our pleasures
journey through pain
maybe we'll find something to wash away our stain

and with these broken bones rejoice
i can still draw near
with hope that limps and a broken smile
can good still come from this life

so is it working
what would you say?
we put on our mask, live out the perfect charade
to guard the wound and appease the pain
preserved for the lonely spaces between our days

or with these broken bones rejoice
i can still draw near
with hope that limps and a broken smile
can good still come from this life

though i know i'm to be grateful
for the things that knocked me down
i've not been able to shake my aversion
to standing on the ground

and i think i've got the fight
to go another round
but i swear i'd give it up
if i could just hear the sound of your voice

with these broken bones rejoice
i can still draw near
with hope that limps and a broken smile
can good still come from this life
good will still come from this life
