The lyrics from the song are in the white "inner frame". The Statue's torch seems to have taken flight. Each small yellow balloon carries a thing that might be broken: home, glass, belief, breath, heart and a couple of others. Small memories of a map...maybe just beginning to be explored? And her "crown" is composed of all kinds of "Broken Things" from glass, a poor piggy, scraps of foil, broken bits of old paint and other bits and pieces, tiny references to feathers on a headress. It's really hard to describe a painting that has a lot of complexity but this is a painting of hope just as the song is...Any questions? Please ask!


"Broken Things"

 

Sometimes the road is crystal

And sometimes I feel like I'm losing my mind

Tell me what it is what you think you're missing

And I will see what I can find

You want to be so sure of every step you take

You can't always know what's coming

You can't always trust the twist of fate

 

Oh my love my heart is set on you, set on you

Oh my love my heart is set on you, set on you

 

Stars shine down from the black and we're picking though this broken glass

Well how could we know that our lives would be so full of beautifully broken things?

Oh my love my heart is set on you, set on you

Oh my love my heart is set on you, set on you

 

War is the most vulgar madness and winters can be so cruel

You can't always change the way things are like I can't change the way I think of you
