Broken Man

Album: Boys Like Girls (2006)

Songfacts®:

  • Singer/Guitarist Martin Johnson of Boys Like Girls said: "'Broken Man' is where the tide starts to turn a little bit in the record, back to the full circle recovery. The song is obviously about heartbreak, but at the same time it is about moving on and pushing forward. Even though I was broken from the circumstance, I wasn't going to let it bring me down and I had to move on."
