Built Up Broke Down

April 2, 2018

You’ve been built up; broke down
One day you’re going to turn around,
To see that this happy life you’ve found,
Is from being built up and broke down,

Cuz you’ve been made stronger and faster,
Disaster after disaster,
If you could see yourself after,
You’d see how life’s making you a master.

You’ve been built up; broke down
One day you’re going to turn around,
To see that this happy life you’ve found,
Is from being built up and broke down,

I see a potential major,
You see a complete failure,
So are we gonna be sunken sailors,
Or are we gonna be saviors?

Cuz you’ve been built up; broke down
One day you’re going to turn around,
To see that this happy life you’ve found,
Is from being built up and broke down,

So are you gonna be a settler,
After sailing through rough weather,
Or are you going to be a quitter,
You’ve got this chance to be made better.

Through being built up; broke down
One day you’re going to turn around,
To see that This happy life you’ve found,
Is from being built up and broke down,

You can fight,
So use that spite,
To set yourself alight,
And make a them look up at you tonight.

And then they’ll say “He’s been built up; broke down,
One day she’s going to turn around,
To see that I this happy life they’ve found,
Is from being built up and broke down.”

Because that’s what life’s all about.
