Broken Together

Play Video
  • What do you think about when you look at me
    I know we're not the fairy tale you dreamed we'd be
    You wore the veil, you walked the aisle, you took my hand
    And we dove into a mystery

    How I wish we could go back to simpler times
    Before all our scars and all our secrets were in the light
    Now on this hallowed ground, we've drawn the battle lines
    Will we make it through the night?

    It's going to take much more than promises this time
    Only God can change our minds

    Maybe you and I were never meant to be complete
    Could we just be broken together
    If you can bring your shattered dreams and I'll bring mine
    Could healing still be spoken and save us
    The only way we'll last forever is broken together

    How it must have been so lonely by my side
    We were building kingdoms and chasing dreams and left love behind
    I'm praying God will help our broken hearts align
    And we won't give up the fight

    It's going to take much more than promises this time
    Only God can change our minds

    Maybe you and I were never meant to be complete
    Could we just be broken together
    If you can bring your shattered dreams and I'll bring mine
    Could healing still be spoken and save us
    The only way we'll last forever is broken together

    Maybe you and I were never meant to be complete
    Could we just be broken together
    If you can bring your shattered dreams and I'll bring mine
    Could healing still be spoken and save us
    The only way we'll last forever is broken together Writer/s: Mark Hall, Bernie Herms

  • Michael from IndianaThis song definitely pierces the heart especially when your going through a breakup/ divorce. Unfortunately sometimes we put ourselves 1st instead of God's sacred covenant and choose to be broken apart instead of together. Healing takes time don't rush it.
  • Judy from United StatesMy son and daughter-in-law went through a divorce a few months ago and when I heard Broken Together, I thought to myself that this was written truly for them. I pray everyday that some how my x-daughter-in-law will here this song and listen to these words. Awesome song Casting Crown. It sure did hit home for son and now x-daughter-in-law. I think that we are all some how broken together some just heal and other couples move on.
