The Anatomy Of Broken
by Chris Sligh


I want you to know, I want you know
That I’m weaker than I told you
Can I open my soul, open my soul
And let you in?

Cuz light only shines, yeah light only shines
From the places where we’re broken
And that’s where we find, that’s where we find
That grace begins

It’s easy now to let it (them) go
The only thing that’s left to show
That love has healed our broken hearts
Is scars, yeah…

There’s nothing to prove, nothing to prove,
You don’t have to be somebody
You are who you are, and even your scars
Are lovely


The secrets that we’re keeping from each other
The weaknesses we all want to hide
The places where we’re falling all to pieces
The tears we cry…
