Broken Open

Album: For Your Entertainment (2009)
  • Broken pieces, break into me
    So imperfectly what you should be

    I don't want you to go
    Don't wanna see you back out in the cold
    Air you're breathing out fades you to grey
    Don't run away, find me

    I know the battles of chasing the shadows of who you wanna be
    It doesn't matter, go on and shatter
    I'm all you need
    Broken pieces, break into me
    So imperfectly what you should be
    Lay here, it's safe here, I'll let you be broken open
    Hide here, confide here so we can be broken open

    Let's enlighten the night
    We can fall away, slip out of sight
    When you drop your guard
    Melt into time, so intertwined, quiet

    I know the battles of chasing the shadows of who you wanna be
    It doesn't matter, go on and shatter
    I'm all you need
    Broken pieces, break into me
    So imperfectly what you should be
    Lay here, it's safe here, I'll let you be broken open
    Hide here, confide here so we can be broken open

    Broken pieces, break into me
    So imperfectly what you should be
    Lay here, it's safe here, I'll let you be broken open
    Hide here, confide here so we can be broken open

    Lay here, it's safe here, I'll let you be broken open
    Hide here, confide here so we can be broken open Writer/s: GREG WELLS, ADAM SCOTT LAMBERT, EVAN BOGART
