He makes beauty from brokenness….

“Marriage is tough. We bring a lot of fairytales to the picture when it comes to marriage. We bring them to the altar with us [thinking]: ‘This is going to be perfect. We don’t have to be apart. We can just wake up together every morning and no one is going to have morning breath. We’re not going to have any problems.’ And then the problems hit and you don’t know where to file those into your picture. . . The idea I’m trying to say is: ‘Can you lay down who you thought I was and love the ‘me’ that is? Can we take this from where we are now and realize that I can’t be that person?’ Only God is going to be able to make this work and broken people can be broken together. To me, it’s probably the most important song on the record.” -Mark Hall

What do you think about when you look at me?
I know we’re not the fairytale you dreamed we’d be.
You wore the veil, you walked the aisle, you took my hand,
And we dove into a mystery.

How I wish we could go back to simpler times,
Before all our scars and all our secrets were in the light.
Now on this hallowed ground, we’ve drawn the battle lines;
Will we make it through the night?

It’s going to take much more than promises this time;
Only God can change our minds.

Maybe you and I were never meant to be complete;
Could we just be broken together?
If you can bring your shattered dreams and I’ll bring mine,
Could healing still be spoken and save us?
The only way we’ll last forever is broken together.

How it must have been so lonely by my side.
We were building kingdoms and chasing dreams and left love behind.
I’m praying God will help our broken hearts align,
And we won’t give up the fight.
