“Beautiful. I could really relate to the story behind the song. I think for me this was a perfect song to put into words my feelings toward myself. It had my eyes filling up listening to the emotions in your voice. Keep doing what you’re doing the way you’re doing it.” – Maureen

Broken Branches | The Song

Broken Branches

VERSE 1

Write the words then rip out the pages. 
Sew the seam then tear out the stitches 
To be good enough, good enough

Climb the tree then break the branches
Threatening for all the last chances 
To be good enough, good enough

BRIDGE

Don’t even say a word. Life must still be earned. 
In the torn out pages and the broken branches.

VERSE 3

Put on a smile brush off the feeling. 
Bruising the skin, no time for healing
To be good enough, good enough
Show up to fight, too sick to eat and
Take the fall without believing
To be good enough, good enough

VERSE 3

Half way there with no time to save and
Nothing to hide a future to gain
To be good enough, good enough.
Writing the words across the pages
Fixing the seam with ten thousand stitches
Taking the floor for the last dance 
To be good enough, good enough.
