• Broken (Beautiful) Christopher Sligh

    I watched the movie October Baby this evening and all I can say is “Wow!” This was a well-crafted, touching film. I would think it would be very healing for anyone involved in the adoption and / or abortion process. October Baby isn’t about pointing fingers of blame, but giving a realistic portrayal that is about forgiveness and hope. Well done!

    After watching the movie, I got on iTunes and downloaded the soundtrack. One of the songs I particularly like is Christopher Sligh’s “Broken (Beautiful)”

     

     


    Lyrics

    We’re broken in two with love as an anchor
    There’s nothing to do but give in, give in
    Mirror less eyes give off a reflection
    The moonlight is fair as we rise again

    Oh, can we move on, can we move on
    From the love we’ve left behind?
    Oh, can we move on, can we move on
    From the love we’ll never find?

    We’re giving into sweet desperation
    When all this is through, we’ll give in, give in
    Channels of grace give off the aroma
    Of love mixed with pain and hope raised again

    Oh, can we move on, can we move on
    From the love we’ve left behind?
    Oh, can we move on, can we move on
    From the love we’ll never find?

    The world is broken in too many pieces
    But the brokenness is beautiful, it’s beautiful
    My heart is broken by beauty’s mysteries
    But the brokenness is beautiful, it’s beautiful

    Oh, can we move on, can we move on
    From the love we’ve left behind?
    Oh, can we move on, can we move on
    From the love we’ll never find?

    Yeah
    The world is broken in too many pieces
    But the brokenness is beautiful, it’s beautiful
    My heart is broken by beauty’s mysteries
    But the brokenness is beautiful, it’s beautiful
