Matthew West: Broken Girl Meaning
Broken Girl Lyrics
It isn't fair
Your light was bright and new
But he didn't care
He took the heart of a little girl
And made it grow up too fast
Now words like innocence
Don't mean a thing
You hear the music...

At first I was totally shocked by the amount of sexual abuse here in the lower levels. I was even more shocked at how many people choose to be the victim and how many people blame God. Someday maybe by the Grace my story will be told correctly starting at day one and living in the fast lane. I still believe in first of everything. Unfortunately I am still passing through, but on the high side my hourglass is upside down.

My interpretation of this song is that a father was horrible and mean to his daughter and made her feel worthless and like she wasn't worth anything and she grew up feeling like that. Matt is saying she is so much more than what they make her feel like.

It means whatever you need it to mean. To me, it's when my parents always say I was damaged at birth, that there's something wrong with me, that I'll never be as good as my sister. Whoever cuts you down and makes you feel worthless, you're not the worthless they madde you feel, and even if they don't love you, God does, a love they can never steal

I think that this song is speaking to every girl whose been hurt in any way. It's supposed to touch what you've been through so you can emotionally connect with it.

I think its for a young girl, like a teenager, who is abused sexually. She feels used and worthless and isn't able to forget what happened. the song is trying to say that God's love will fix you and bring you back up and that it is everlasting so no one can rip it away from you.

i think it means that even tho you hurt, even tho ur broken,God can help you. hes always there, no matter how hard things are or worthless you feel,there is a love that is So real.<3
god loves you so much, he doesn't want you to stay the broken girl.

It really does mean anything, to make you feel better. The lines ♥ Those damaged goods you see, In your reflection ♥
♥ Love sees them differently, Love sees perfection ♥
♥ A beautiful display, Of healing on the way tonight ♥, helps me when my family constantly brings me down because of how i look.

I think it could mean anything you want it to. To me it means that even though the world can try and tear you don't you still can make it out on top. This song really helped me see that I can be better.

I think it's about a little girl that gets sexually abused as a child and now she doesn't know what love really is. And now it's pretty much him saying it'll all be okay and that she will find true love.
