  • I like that you're broken
    Broken like me
    Maybe that makes me a fool
    I like that you're lonely
    Lonely like me
    I could be lonely with you

    I met you late night, at a party
    Some trust fund baby's Brooklyn loft
    By the bathroom, you said let's talk
    But my confidence is wearing off

    These aren't my people
    These aren't my friends
    She grabbed my face and that's when she said

    I like that you're broken
    Broken like me
    Maybe that makes me a fool
    I like that you're lonely
    Lonely like me
    I could be lonely with you

    There's something tragic, but almost pure
    Think I could love you, but I'm not sure
    There's something wholesome, there's something sweet
    Tucked in your eyes that I'd love to meet

    These aren't my people
    These aren't my friends
    She grabbed my face and that's when she said

    I like that you're broken
    Broken like me
    Maybe that makes me a fool
    I like that you're lonely
    Lonely like me
    I could be lonely with you

    Life is not a love song that we like
    We're all broken pieces floating by
    Life is not a love song, we can try
    To fix our broken pieces one at a time

    I like that you're broken
    Broken like me
    Maybe that makes me a fool
    I like that you're lonely
    Lonely like me
    I could be lonely with you
    I like that you're broken
    Broken like me
    Maybe that makes me a fool
    I like that you're lonely
    Lonely like me
    I could be lonely with you Writer/s: Christian Medice, Mitchell Collins, Samantha DeRosa
