about

“Broken” was written about Jordan’s former love interest who lead him on and chose to break things off after just a few weeks of intimacy just shy of a relationship. In the wake of the supposed “break-up” between Jordan and his friend, he expresses his immediate concerns: what happens to the friendship now? It’s a question sometimes bypassed by people in relationships that ended. Does this mean the end of it all or just of an intimate relationship? Sometimes, when it’s so short, you can just bounce back to where you were, but in those long-term relationships, it can be hard to simply return to the way it was. This song poses the question: can we return?

lyrics

Further and further we throw ourselves
Deeper and deeper into the dark
Hour by hour we watch ourselves
Brighter and brighter we burn our souls

Engraving your name into my heart
Nailing the coffin tighter and stronger
By falling for you and condemning me
To a long healthy life of misery!

Did you ever feel so uncontrolled?
So out of mind? So out of your state?
Did you ever feel like it was real?
Like it was there? Just like I did?

The love was alive
The misled good intention
The unintended misconception
But it was so real…
So tell me why have we become so…

Broken and empty inside
We cast ourselves into the fire
Broken and wondering
Why we watch each other fade away
Just open your eyes and see…
Just listen to your heart stop!
Broken inside! Oh!

Thought after of thought of what could have been
Lie after lie unspoken but understood
Hatred and hatred of where we were
Night after night of choking on tears

By coming to me you sealed your fate
A lifetime of pain and suffering
I’m not like the rest, I’ll tear you down
‘Cause I’m no good for you and I’m no good for me

Did you ever feel so left alone?
So on your own? Like I was never even there?
Did you ever feel my promised love?
Did it ever seem like I never even cared?

Did love come to life?
The misread implications
Made everything dissipate
But it was so real
So tell me how did we become so…

Broken and empty inside
We cast ourselves into the fire
Broken and wondering
Why we watch each other fade away
Just open your eyes and see…
Just listen to your heart stop!
Broken inside! Oh!

Broken inside
And barely alive
So questioning why
Our hearts divide

Two from the one
Separated and done
The last thing to say is goodbye
So goodbye!

When did we become two parts of the one?
And when did we become too diverse for our own good?
How do we return to the way that we were?
Before our minds got a hold of desire?
Can we fix what’s…

Broken and empty inside
We cast our souls into the fire
Broken and wondering
Why we watch each other fade away
Just open your eyes and see…
Just listen to your heart stop!
Broken inside! Oh!

Let’s go!

Fuck

Watch your step.
