She said, thanks but I'm broken.
I guess you must have misspoken.
What a laugh, I've never been chosen by anyone.

She was barely a teen,
Hanging out in between,
Just a part of the scene.
With mercurial smile
And incurable style,
She was only a dream.

How's that, he didn't know a thing about
Making love to the kind of girl you read about.

He said, I'm bound to be broken.
My daddy bet that I'd amount to nothing.
He won't let anybody show him anything.

He was a troubled child,
Had been down for a while,
Always kept to himself.
No she couldn't defend,
He only wanted a friend,
Now he's made something else.

It's so sad, no one saw it coming,
The paper said that he hit the ground running.

Oh yeah, I know I'm not broken.
A little cracked, but still I'm not broken.
I wanna laugh, but I think that I'm choking on reality.

When the world is turning for you,
Don't turn on me,
Who are you here to repair,
Well I don't know what you mean.
You could never resist
Glorifying despair,
Well now it's coming to you
And I don't really care.

While I'm not the kind to insist,
You couldn't have missed, we must co-exist.
So please listen to me,
There is no such thing as human debris.

Oh yeah, I know I'm not broken.
A little cracked, but that amounts to nothing.
I wanna laugh, I'm not joking.

I'm unbroken,
Oh yeah, I said I'm unbroken,
I said I'm unbroken,
A little cracked,
it's just a token.
I'm really not broken,
What a guess, I'm unbroken.
