There’s a crack in every heart
Some tiny, some deep
And each and every scar
The souvenirs we keep

Wouldn’t be who we are
Without where we’ve been
Every hurt that breaks us open
Lets the sunlight in
Let the sunlight in

We’re beautifully broken
There’s nothing wrong with that
There’s no magic potion
That can fill in every gap
We’re like a glass that’s splintered
And held up to the sun
Inside us there’s a rainbow so let the colors run
We’re beautifully broken

Lightning cuts the dark
Tears a hole in the sky
Leaves a secret mark
To a window open wide

It’s a strange, fragile place
Where pain and joy collide
Or maybe that’s the way
It makes me feel inside
Makes me feel inside

We’re beautifully broken
There’s nothing wrong with that
There’s no magic potion
That can fill in every gap
We’re like a glass that’s splintered
And held up to the sun
Inside us there’s a rainbow so let the colors run
We’re beautifully broken

Some hearts are made to last
Like wavy window glass panes
Imperfect and damaged but
Somehow we manage to love just the same

We’re beautifully broken
There’s nothing wrong with that
There’s no magic potion
That can fill in every gap
We’re like a glass that’s splintered
And held up to the sun
Inside us there’s a rainbow so let the colors run
We’re beautifully broken
