"Boulevard Of Broken Dreams" as written by Harry Warren and Al Dubin....
I walk along the street of sorrow,
The boulevard of broken dreams.
Where gigolo and gigolette
Can take a kiss without regret
So they forget their broken dreams.

You laugh tonight and cry tomorrow,
When you behold your shattered dreams.
And gigolo and gigolette
Awake to find their eyes are wet
With tears that tell of broken dreams.

Here is where you`ll always find me,
Always walking up and down.
But I left my soul behind me
In an old cathedral town.

The joy you find here, you borrow,
You cannot keep it long, it seems.
But gigolo and gigolette
Still sing a song and dance along
The boulevard of broken dreams.

Interlude
Here is where you`ll always find me,
Always walking up and down.
But I left my soul behind me
In an old cathedral town.

The joy you find here, you borrow,
You cannot keep it long, it seems.
But gigolo and gigolette
Still sing a song and dance along
The boulevard of broken dreams.

    General Commentsure beats green day. Reminds me of all those songs about the smalltown boy/girl like Bronski Beat or The Strangler's "Strange Little Girl". We have been lured into the temptation of the big shcitty for long enough with broken promises of joy to help turn the wheels of economic progress. Natalie Merchant's "Carnival" paints a parallel with its lyrics about being hypnotized and mesmerized by what our eyes do see. If the city is the "Carnival" depicted in her song, in this song, and in Pinocchio where children are converted to donkeys and shadows of their former selves, then why are we still buying it? Can you sing this song while you parade down the Boulevard of Broken Dreams in your gas guzzling Humvee, powered by the blood of iraqi children? Why does the high cost of living have to be bombing for peace? Because we keep buying it.

    Gigolo and gigolette is us, we prostitute each other and lend our bodies to corporations 9-5 for nickel and dime that we put right back into circulation anyways, and its not going back into restoring the quality of life enjoyed in dying rural towns incase you've noticed only ones that melt into the city are given any attention. Like the Borg, THEY are assimilating us, and the New World Order is almost complete so once all the shares are bought up, and the mergers are complete, get ready for the fourth Reich motherf*ckers!! Its not gonna be so sweet.
