Abstract – Kintsugi lyrics
(ft. Tamzene)


[Tamzene]
Oh, there is gold between us now
Someplace the broken can be found
If we are weakened on our own, this kind of love can make us strong
Oh, there is gold
Oh, there is gold between us now

[Abstract]
Know I’m all that I’m cracked up to be
Every time I was shattered, I had to be
Just to put all my pieces where they belong
The thing about holding on, it’s the holding that’ll make you strong
I know how it changed me, turned my trouble to fuel
I’d be lying if I said my fire don’t outweigh my cool
Known to react with the quickness, watch the calm become a storm
I’m ashamed to all who witness the moment I transform
That’s a coping mechanism probably picked up in my youth
No, I don’t like confrontation, but I ramp up when I do
Reason that I vent on beats and stages, here’s the truth
It starts to bubble up inside me ’til my mind becomes a noose
I’m not perfect with my methods, I’ve been broken past repair
But there’s gold inside the cracks ’cause I learned how to really care
For those who were mistreated, half-defeated, I’m a voice
‘Cause seeing beauty in the broken takes a mirror and a choice

[Tamzene]
Oh, there is gold between us now
Someplace the broken can be found
If we are weakened on our own, this kind of love can make us strong
Oh, there is gold
Oh, there is gold between us now
Oh, there is gold
Gold between us now
Oh, there is gold
Gold between us now

[Tamzene & Abstract]
They told us that we were broken but those were the pieces that tell me to you
No one can say that they’re perfect, I’d rather be broken, ’cause broken is true

[Abstract]
Know you’ve been through things and you’ve got cracks you try to hide
Ways of coping you developed in an effort to survive
People who saw you as if you never were enough
People who made pain too synonymous with love
I see beauty in your broken, see the gold where you repaired
Sorry if I sometimes take your distance personal, I’m scared
That I’ll lose you to the seasons, I got reasons of my own
Abandonment is stitched into the fabric of my bones
Not the best with patience, I’ve learned that you need your time
We got different ways of copin’, different languages inside
Recently, I’ve taken time to get to learning doors
Far apart but close at heart so know that this is more than words
We’re all a little broken but there’s gold inside the cracks
Built us stronger than we were, I think we’re finally built to last
The future that we’re making off the trials of our past
This kind of love is a mosaic and only comes from broken glass

[Tamzene]
Oh, there is gold between us now
Someplace the broken can be found
If we are weakened on our own, this kind of love can make us strong
Oh, there is gold
Oh, there is gold between us now
Oh, there is gold
Gold between us now
Oh, there is gold
Gold between us now

[Tamzene & Abstract]
They told us that we were broken but those were the pieces that tell me to you
No one can say that they’re perfect, I’d rather be broken, ’cause broken is true
