05. Porcelain Heart

Another Journal Entry
by BarlowGirl



 

Broken heart one more time
Pick yourself up, why even cry
Broken pieces in your hands
Wonder how you’ll make it whole

Chorus:
You know, you pray
This can’t be the way
You cry, you say
Something’s gotta change
And mend this porcelain heart of mine

Someone said “A broken heart
Would sting at first then make you stronger”
You wonder why this pain remains
Were hearts made whole just to break

Creator only You take brokenness
And create it into beauty once again



Behind the Song:
"We look around at our generation, people in their teens and twenties, and there are so many people who are just broken-hearted. Alyssa told us about this image she got on a prayer time of a girl whose heart was shattered on the ground, and that picture has stuck with us ever since. You don’t have to live your life going from person to person to person to make your heart whole. All that will happen is that your heart will get broken, time after time. We think we need these relationships, because we are so empty as human beings that we look to others to find self worth. There’s a different way. “Porcelain Heart” says that if you have a broken heart, there is healing for you in the Fathers perfect love." - Becca Barlow (BarlowGirl)

"Our generation is really empty. We’re just looking for someone to love us, and we’re willing to take something as precious as our heart and give it to anybody, just to find acceptance. What “Porcelain Heart” is saying is, “God wants you to keep it whole. Guard your heart as a wellspring of life.” We took three years to write this. We have a real sympathy for broken-hearted people." - Alyssa Barlow (BarlowGirl)
