I know you don't wanna say goodbye yet,
But she can't survive here with just a petal
You still have one wish but it'd be useless,
More than roses have died in this desert.

Child, it seems that younger and younger,
They start to wipe your minds clean.
But how, I wonder, just barely under,
Do your eyes continue sparkling?

And I-I never want to open up your eyes, everything's broken.
And I-I never want to open up your heart, everything's broken.

I don't understand why they are gone,
Or what reason there is to be strong.
I still try to love but I'm in a place where
Doing what's right is so wrong.

But if you see me ignore the gun,
We are still fighting for life.
Here's our wish just to exist
In more than our eyes.

And I-I never want to open up your eyes, everything's broken.
And I-I never want to open up your heart, everything's broken.

Do you see what I see? Do you feel what I feel?
It doesn't matter until we see broken lives heal
Do you see what I see? Do you feel what I feel?
It doesn't matter until we see broken lives heal

Oh oh oh oh oh...

And I-I found it hard to open up my mouth, will they hear what's spoken?
But I-I saw when I opened up my eyes, invisible children.

Broke, but not broken.
Broke, but not broken.
