Broken Man

Album: Boys Like Girls (2006)
  • I want to scream, until no sound comes out and you've learned your lesson
    I want to swallow these pills to get to sleep
    So I don't have to make a bad impression

    I need to start to be myself
    Cause I'm sick of everybody else

    I won't let you bring me down
    It's here and now I'm breaking out
    I will learn to love again
    But I will stand a broken man

    I wanna run, but only far enough to make you miss me
    I wanna take back all the shit that I have done
    But I guess you were better off without me

    I need to start to be myself
    Cause I'm sick of everybody else

    I won't let you bring me down
    It's here and now, I'm breaking out
    I will learn to love again
    But I will stand a broken man

    I took one big step and I looked away
    And then I thought of all the things that I wanted to say
    I'm always too late
    You never got your story straight
    I'm always up late
    I think I'm everything you hate

    I took one big step and I looked away
    And then I thought of all the things that I wanted to say
    I'm always too late
    You never got your story straight
    I'm always up late
    I think I'm everything you hate

    I took one big step and I looked away
    And then I thought of all the things that I wanted to say
    I'm always too late
    You never got your story straight
    I'm always up late
    I think I'm everything you hate

    I won't let you bring me down
    It's here and now, I'm breaking out
    I will learn to love again
    But I will stand a broken man

    I won't let you bring me down
    It's here and now, I'm breaking out
    I will learn to love again
    But I will stand a broken man Writer/s: MARTIN JOHNSON
