We Are the Broken Lyrics

by Matthew West

Most my life I've been doing my best to
Try and hide anything less than perfect.
I covered up all my scars
I gotta make them think I've got it together
Make believe nobody ever has to see
What I keep in the dark

Truth is, I was wrong
That's the part that you have wanted all along

We are, we are, we are the broken
We are, we are, we are the chosen
So come on shine, shine,
Shine your beautiful light
Through the cracks inside our hearts tonight
'Cause we are, we are, we are the broken

Coast is clear we got nothing to hide
All are welcome here
Step into the light
Where there's no more fear
Can you hear the freedom song our souls are singing

Come just as you are
Take those walls around you and tear 'em all apart

We are, we are, we are the broken
We are, we are, we are the chosen
So come on shine, shine,
Shine your beautiful light
Through the cracks inside our hearts tonight
'Cause we are, we are, we are the broken

We are the weak,
The wrong, the too far gone,
We are the outcasts, yeah, but today we belong

We are the lost, the found, the been knocked down
But we got back up and now we are the city on a hill
Is filled with stained glass hearts, but we come as we are
We come as we are
And we shine like stars, shine like stars
We come as we are and we shine like stars

We are, we are, we are the broken
We are, we are, we are the chosen

So come on shine, shine,
Shine your beautiful light
Through the cracks inside our hearts tonight
'Cause we are, we are, we are the broken

We are the weak,
The wrong, the too far gone,
We are the outcasts, yeah, but today we belong
