  • Lyrics
  • This piano ballad was the first new recording released by Lifehouse after their hiatus in 2013-2014. The reconvening of the band wasn't premeditated, lead singer Jason Wade explained to Artist Direct: "When I started writing the songs, it seemed like a natural progression. As soon as I wrote 'Flight' and 'Hurricane,' that's when it really started to sink in that I wanted to get the band back together. I was making a solo record at the time. Those songs started to feel like quintessential Lifehouse tracks. I called the guys up to finish the album together. This is a full circle for us. It really sees us returning to our roots."
  • Lifehouse bass player Bryce Soderberg said in a Songfacts interview: "I personally really enjoy the song 'Broken' and the song 'Flight.' Both of those songs have a deeper meaning to them that for me really translates. I feel certain emotions, and trials and tribulations that I've been going through in my life when we perform these songs."
