lyrics

I WAS BORN BROKEN
TATTERED AND TORN
I'VE BEEN RIPPED OPEN
DAMAGED AND WORN

YOU WONT UNDERSTAND
I CANNOT BE HEALED
I'LL GIVE YOU MY HAND
IT WILL NOT STAY SEALED

YOU LOOK AT ME
BUT ONLY SEE WHAT I SHOW
TELL ME WHAT I AM
YOU ACT LIKE YOU KNOW

I HATE YOU FOR BEING
ALL THAT I NEED
I STILL FEEL ALONE
AND CAUSE MYSELF TO BLEED

I CAN'T CLOSE THE SEAMS
THEY'RE ALREADY OPEN
GOT NO ONE TO BLAME
I WAS BORN BROKEN

I WAS BORN BROKEN
TATTERED AND TORN
I’VE BEEN RIPPED OPEN
DAMAGED AND WORN

CAN I STAY AWAY FROM TROUBLE
WITH THIS BRANDED ON MY HIDE
SHED MY SKIN TO TURN A PAGE
IT SEEPS THROUGH THE OTHER SIDE

I HATE YOU FOR BEING
ALL THAT I NEED
I STILL FEEL ALONE
AND CAUSE MYSELF TO BLEED

I CAN'T CLOSE THE SEAMS
THEY'RE ALREADY OPEN
GOT NO ONE TO BLAME
I WAS BORN BROKEN

MAYBE I DESERVE
TO BE ABUSED
WHEN I LET THE BEST OF ME
BE TAKEN AND USED

THIS ISN'T THE PAST
IT'S JUST WHAT I AM
ITS PUT ME IN LAST
I PRETEND THAT IT'S THEM

I WAS BORN BROKEN
TATTERED AND TORN
I’VE BEEN RIPPED OPEN
DAMAGED AND WORN

I HATE YOU FOR BEING
ALL THAT I NEED
I STILL FEEL ALONE
AND CAUSE MYSELF TO BLEED

I CAN'T CLOSE THE SEAMS
THEY'RE ALREADY OPEN
GOT NO ONE TO BLAME
I WAS BORN BROKEN

I WAS BORN BROKEN
