Broken Home Lyrics

Broken home
All alone
Broken home
All alone

I can't seem to fight these feelings
I'm caught in the middle of this
My wounds are not healing
I'm stuck in between my parents
I wish I had someone to talk to
Someone to I could confide...

    I believe this song is about a bad devorce. The teengager is stuck between two parents. One who "cares" and one who doesn't at all. It shows how a broken home can scar the teen. He cried himself to sleep because he felt useless. a weak link" in the family.

    This song could kind of be an anthem for kids going through the same scenario. This song really paints a picture of what its like to grow up in a broken home. The absent father only around when its convinient for him. A Mother just staying back not really knowing what to do, and a kid caught in the middle not exactly sure of what to do.

    I think its about how kids struggle through their parents poor marriage, specifically when its something that the father is doing which makes the marriage as bad as it is.

    Basically, Jacoby (lead singer) had a father who ignored him and didn't care about him. He expressed it all in this song.

    I personally think it's about how divorce just fucks up kids' lives. I think Jacoby's childhood had a lot to do with this one.

    I believe this song was about the lead singers life when he was younger. He had a really bad relationship with his parents espesially his father. Life at home was terrible so that's why he named it broken home. Basically, any teenage life at home.
