Broken

Broken

When I was whole
I could move mountains
And when I walked tall
I just stopped counting

And I knew truth
He was my brother
And I knew love
She was my Holy Mother

And I knew no pain
And I knew no defeat
I was invincible
Your love was so sweet…

But now I’m broken

When I was a King
I had a kingdom
There was a flow
And there was a rhythm

I mapped the stars
And I charted the oceans
I wrote a book of prayer
And songs of devotion

And I had no doubt
And I had no fear
I was immovable
When your love was near…

But now I’m broken

Broken
But the light floods in
Forsaken
Impaled upon my sin
My heart more open
With every hammer and nail
I am broken
And yet Thy love prevails

It was a glory
To be in my stride
But it’s a blessing
To feel denied

It was a miracle
To be with you
But it’s a mercy
To be broken in two

There was a spell
That made me feel
There was a magic
That made everything real

But now that spell is broken

I remember
All our lives
All our children
All our husbands and wives

Now I’m alone
Up here on Calvary Hill
And I am broken
Broken in my will

But something’s happening
As my heart she bleeds
A strange light gathering
Angels coming for me
As I lay broken

Broken
As the light floods in
Broken
Tattooed upon my skin
Broken
No place left to roam
Broken
Now I’m going home

Calvary Hill, Broken
