Music Challenge #44: “Broken” by LovelytheBand #musicchallenge #music #amwriting #MLMM

For this week I’ve chosen the song “Broken” by the group LovelytheBand.What I enjoy about this song is the admittance that the voice in the song is a flawed human being, and that people can love anyways despite brokenness. Maybe we fit because all the rest of us are broken too? Here’s some info about LovelytheBand in this article from Wikipedia.

“Broken” by LovelytheBand


Use “Broken” as an inspiration to any form of creative expression (including but not limited to short stories, poems, lyrics, artwork, photography, (etc.). Alternatively, if you are a musician, use this as an opportunity to showcase your work.

What do the bands lyrics inspire in you? Do you feel comforted or hopeful? Do you hate the song or like it? As always. . . can always use pieces of the lyrics to inspire you. Any creative form goes. And you don’t have to be direct or explicit if the nature of your piece is too personal.


Lyrics: “Broken” by LovelytheBand

*****

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
*****
