Pocketful Of Dreams

Album: Billy Talent III (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Lead singer Ben Kowalewicz told Kerrang! May 30, 2009: "This is a tongue-in-cheek song about a girl who marries a man for his money. A person who sacrificed her dreams and goals just to be seen on the arm of a rich man. The moral of the story is you can do whatever you want to do without the help of anyone else."
