We Are Broken
Appears on:
RIOT!
Lyrics:

VERSE ONE:
I am outside and I've been waiting for the sun
With my wide eyes i've seen worlds that don't belong
my mouth is dry... with words i cannot verbalize
tell me why we live like this.

PRE:
and keep me safe inside
your arms like towers
tower over me.

CHORUS:
Cause we are broken
what must we do to restore
our innocence and all the promise we adored?
give us life again
we just wanna be whole.

VERSE TWO:
Lock the doors, I'd like to capture this voice
That came to me tonight
so everyone will have a choice
and under red lights, i'll show myself it wasn't forged
we're at war... we live like this.

PRE:
keep me safe inside
your arms like towers
tower over me

CHORUS:
Cause we are broken
what must we do to restore
our innocence and all the promise we adored?
give us life again
we just wanna be whole.

BRIDGE:
ahhhh
ahhhh
tower over me
tower over me

CHORUS:
Cause we are broken
what must we do to restore
our innocence and all the promise we adored?
give us life again
we just wanna be whole.

the final riot version is so beautiful. i love it that she dedicated it to the kids at love146. slavery is in this country, it exists, we're young, we can do something about it. www.love146.org. great organization, great cause.

this is an amazing and the meaning behind it makes it even more special...at a concert she said it was was about child trafficking and i suppose she means that these child have lost their innocence and thats all they want back

i agree with GottaLoveParamore. listening to this song, i get the feeling of being understood. i dunno if this is too personal, but me and my parents are havin major problems.. and some other stuff im going through as well, this song describes my life man.

"Keep me safe inside, your arms like towers, tower over me." That just speaks so much to me. It describes how I feel so often. I cry almost every time I listen to this song, and yet I can't stop listening to it, because it shows that Paramore understands how I feel. This song reflects how I feel, and thank you so much to Paramore for writing this wonderful song. ?
