crushed and created lyrics – caitlyn smith

looking back on the things that found me

places i would never choose

the same things that both haunt and heal

my demons and my muse

we are crushed and created

we are melted and made

we are broken and built up

in the very same way

what i thought i could handle

what i thought i could take

what i thought would destroy me

leaves me stronger in its way

and there are times that i underestimated

both the grief and goodness found in something new

one thing dies

something else can be created

though its the truth you find

its innocence you lose

we are crushed and created

we are melted and made

we are broken and built up

in the very same way

what i thought i could handle

what i thought i could take

what i thought would destroy me

leaves me stronger in its way

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

im not the me that i started with

my friends say my eyes are brighter

im not the me that i started with

im freer, im wiser, and im stronger

we are crushed and created

we are melted and made

we are broken and built up

in the very same way

what i thought i could handle

what i thought i could take

what i thought would destroy me

leaves me stronger, stronger

we are crushed and created

we are melted and made

we are broken and built up

in the very same way

what i thought i could handle

what i thought i could take

what i thought would destroy me

leaves me stronger in its way

it leaves me stronger
