Let me just start off by saying that it is really difficult to find songs that the broken child identifies with. Therefore, some of the songs linked below will no be describing how the broken child sees him/herself, but how the other alters/outsiders might view him/her OR how other alters would describe what he/she feels, if that makes any sense?
This is how the broken child would describe his/her feelings:
Lykke Li- Possibility
This is a mix (I guess? ) between how other alters would describe the broken child’s situation and how he/she would:
Evanescence – Breathe no more
Evanescence – Imaginary (I find this song depicts dissociation and the consequences of trauma quiet well)
Gary Jules- Mad World
Breaking Benjamin- Dear Agony
What we’d like to say to the broken child:
Snow Patrol- Run Live at Oxegen 2009
The Used- Blue and Yellow
It’s so difficult but I do enjoy putting these lists together..
Hope you enjoyed it!
What songs would you use to describe yourself?
