Chapman, Tracy - Broken Lyrics




You can close your eyes
And see a picture perfect life
Inside of your mind
Dreaming only of the days ahead
Wanted and wished for more than now
Or the days behind
You waste your time

The picture makes a promise
The flesh lets it be broken
The picture makes a promise
The flesh lets it be broken

You can never think
You can't even stop yourself
Before the words have been spoken
And you've already said
You would give everything
And something for nothing
Everybody thinks you're joking

The picture makes a promise
The flesh lets it be broken
The picture makes a promise
The flesh lets it be broken

You want to be the one
Made over be your own
Before and after
And a supermarket
Beauty in a bottle queen
Who'll one day grace a check-out counter
Magazine front cover
Though the fine print reads

The picture makes a promise
The flesh lets it be broken
The picture makes a promise
The flesh lets it be broken

Lets it be broken
Lets it be broken
Lets it be broken
Lets it be broken
Lets it be broken
Broken
Broken

When your life is never what you wanted
Not even halfway normal
Just tarnished and soiled
When in your reach
A framed and frozen moment
So far from perfection
Not truth or transcendence
Will set you free
Still you don't believe

The picture makes a promise
The flesh lets it be broken
The picture makes a promise
The flesh lets it be broken

    amazing song....Indeed the picture promises the world...but the flesh is weak and so breaks all promise

  5. Joe Bloggs

    She's never written a bad song. Grade A. Especially when you're smoking some Grade A.

  6. Ava Lagulao

    One, two, three, four

    You can close your eyes
    And see a picture perfect life
    Inside of your mind
    Dreaming only of the days ahead
    Wanted and wished for more than now
    Or the days behind
    You waste your time

    The picture makes a promise
    The flesh lets it be broken
    The picture makes a promise
    The flesh lets it be broken

    You can never think
    You can't even stop yourself
    Before the words have been spoken
    And you've already said
    You would give everything
    And something for nothing
    Everybody thinks you're joking

    The picture makes a promise
    The flesh lets it be broken
    The picture makes a promise
    The flesh lets it be broken

    You want to be the one
    Made over be your own
    Before and after
    And a supermarket
    Beauty in a bottle queen
    Who'll one day grace a check-out counter
    Magazine front cover
    Though the fine print reads

    The picture makes a promise
    The flesh lets it be broken
    The picture makes a promise
    The flesh lets it be broken

    Lets it be broken
    Lets it be broken
    Broken
    Lets it be broken
    Lets it be broken
    Broken
    Broken

    When your life is never what you wanted
    Not even halfway normal
    Just tarnished and soiled
    When in your reach
    A framed and frozen moment
    So far from perfection
    Not truth or transcendence
    Will set you free
    Still you don't believe

    The picture makes a promise
    The flesh lets it be broken
    The picture makes a promise
    The flesh lets it be broken

    Life without gravity.!

  8. Vera Buen

    Beauitful song & video!

    Justin chev

    Vera Buen indeed it is, the lyrics have so much substance and cut deep especially the last verse with "not even truth or transcendence will set you free" it's the fact of accepting the unacceptable that no one is ever complete like life is yearning for something you'll never know, It keeps you going.
