Broken Open

Broken Open

Verse 1

I know what it is

To grow up lonely

And I know how it feels

To need a friend

I shut down, gave up, gave in

Closed the door

I’ve been there before

Chorus

When my heart was broken

I thought my life was useless, hopeless

In my desperation

I had a revelation

What I thought was the ending

Was just the beginning

When my heart was broken

It was broken open

Wide open

Verse 2

Something in your voice

Tells me you’re hurting

And something in your smile

Seems out of place

Oh but don’t run, don’t lie, don’t hide from the pain

Let it teach you how to say

Chorus

Bridge

In Sunday school it confused me

Why that man was on the cross

How someone so mistreated

Could be the Savior of us all

Chorus 2

When His heart was broken

And His life seemed so useless, hopeless

In His desperation

Was the grand revelation

What they thought was the ending

Was just the beginning

Yeah when His heart was broken

Yeah when His heart was broken

It was broken open

It was broken open

When our hearts are broken

Let them be broken open
