Liner Notes: 

This is based on a sermon I heard recently that inspired my lyrics.

Lyrics: 

1. You're sitting in the corner and feeling so sad
Can't figure out quite how the world got so bad
Everyone is blaming you; it makes you so mad
You can't see the blessing of brokenness.

Chorus 1:
You don't need to be perfect; you're beautiful inside
'Cause this pain you're feeling can open hearts up wide
There's a blessed beauty in not being whole
And no one can do it all solo
You're beautiful
You're brilliant
You're beloved
Just as you are; just as you'll be
Working together we'll help the world see
The blessed beauty of brokenness

2. You feel beat up, bruised and broken...like a shattered pot of clay.
You feel so empty inside it's hard for you to pray
Emotions washing over you; your body's in decay
You can't feel the blessing of brokenness.

Chorus 2:

You don't need to be perfect; you're beautiful inside
'Cause this pain you're feeling can open hearts up wide
We're pieces in a puzzle that makes one big whole
No one can do it all solo.
You're beautiful.
You're brilliant.
You're beloved.
Just as you are; just as you'll be
Working together we'll help the world see
The blessed beauty of brokenness.

Bridge:
Anyone who tells you that you're not enough
Anyone who tears you down or other mean stuff
Anyone who excludes, who says you don't belong
They've got it wrong.
They're broken, too.
It's not just you

(3x)
You are beautiful. You are brilliant. You're beloved.

Thanks for letting me know you added the music/vocals-so inspirational and needed I think!

Beautiful song with great message. Loving your lyric, singing and playing. It sounds very personal yet universal.

The blessing of brokenness... that's a really beautiful sentiment. Good performance as well.

What a lovely commentary on self-love and an inspiring piece to help those who are feeling down and out and broken to pick up their heads and hearts and glue themselves together again. I really love what you do with your voice on the lyric "decay". Again, the beginning of your chorus is really stand-out. You sure are good at those!

Beautiful poignant delivery. "blessing of brokenness" is a touching sentiment too.

There is something in the melody (and/or your singing) that really makes a connection for me. That's a great perspective to write from. I can definitely see how you would catch it and run with it. Good writing.

This is absolutely beautiful in all respects - from the empowering and loving message of the lyrics to the gorgeous melody and gentle music. Listening again as it is so wonderful and a message I really need to try to hear today and that I always need to do a better job conveying to others.
