“All My Favourite People Are Broken” – Over The Rhine

Sometimes you find, quite by accident, a poem or verse or song that says the very thing you had wanted to say, but somehow all the words were too much of a jumble in your head to be able to say them.

This one such song. You can listen to here.

All my favourite people are broken
Believe me, my heart should know
Some prayers are better left unspoken
I just want to hold you and let the rest go

All my friends are part saint and part sinner
We lean on each other, try to rise above
We are not afraid to admit we are all still beginners
We are all late bloomers when it comes to love

All my favourite people are broken
Believe me, my heart should know
Awful believers, sceptical dreamers, step forward
You can stay right here, you don’t have to go

– Over the Rhine “All My Favourite People”

Be blessed.
