"Broken" came out of a trip that lead singer Jason Wade took to Nashville to visit a dear friend waiting on a kidney transplant. While the song has a specific inspiration, Wade told Songfacts
that the interpretation can vary. "That song I feel has gotten a lot of people through some hard times," he said. "I try when I'm writing a song not to make anything too specific, even though that song was a little bit more specific. But the lyrics, I feel like you can take them and interpret them with whatever emotion is going on in your own life."
