06. We Are the Broken

Into the Light
by Matthew West



 

Most my life I’ve been doing my best to / Try and hide anything less than perfect / I covered up all my scars / I gotta make them think I’ve got it together / Make believe nobody ever has to see / What I keep in the dark / Truth is, I was wrong / That’s the part that you have wanted all along / We are, we are, we are the broken / But we are, we are, we are the chosen / So come on shine,
shine, shine / Your beautiful light / Through the cracks inside our hearts tonight / ‘Cause we are, we are, we are the broken / Coast is clear we got nothing to hide / All are welcome here / Step into the light / Where there’s no more fear / Can you hear the freedom song our souls are singing / Come just as you are / Take those walls around you and tear ‘em all apart / We are the weak,
the wrong, the too far gone / We are the outcasts, yeah, but today we belong / We are the lost, the found, the been knocked down / But we got back up and now we are the city on a hill / Is filled with stained glass hearts, but we come as we are / We come as we are / And we shine like stars, shine like stars / We come as we are and we shine like stars

Behind the Song:
THIS IS ABOUT HOW THE CHURCH SAYS “COME AS YOU ARE” BUT MOST PEOPLE FEEL LIKE THE CHURCH IS THE ONE PLACE YOU CAN’T COME AS YOU ARE. THIS IS ABOUT STANDING UP AND BEING REAL, AUTHENTIC CHRISTIANS, NOT FAKE, HIDE YOUR HURT BEHIND A SMILE CHRISTIANS. THIS IS ABOUT REALIZING THAT GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE ARE THE BROKEN PEOPLE. AND WE ARE ALL BROKEN PEOPLE. - Matthew West
