all my favorite people

are broken.

all my favorite people are broken
Believe me my heart should know
Some prayers are better left unspoken
I just want to hold you and let the rest go

All my friends are part saint and part sinner
We lean on each other try to rise above
We are not afraid to admit we are all still beginners
We are all late bloomers when it comes to love

All my favorite people are broken
Believe me my heart should know
Awful believers skeptical dreamers step forward
You can stay right here you don’t have to go

Is each wound you’ve received just a burdensome gift
It gets so hard to lift yourself up off the ground
But the poet says we must praise a mutilated world

We’re all working the graveyard shift
You might as well sing along

Cause all my favorite people are broken
Believe me my heart should know
As for your tender heart this world’s going to rip it wide open
It ain’t gonna be pretty but you’re not alone

All my favorite people are broken
Believe me my heart should know
Awful believers skeptical dreamers you’re welcome
Yeah you’re safe right here you don’t have to go

Cause all my favorite people are broken
Believe me I should know

Some prayers are better left unspoken
I just want to hold you and let the rest go
