"Broken Hearts, Torn Up Letters And The Story Of A Lonely Girl" as written by and Ian/gaze Watkins....
Broken hearts and torn up letters
Girl you just can't dance forever
If you want to make it better

Her hands are in her pockets
And she's scared to look
The picture's frozen
And she's closed the book

Jealousy has only got one friend
And Joey's heart was never meant to mend
Walking faster now she holds him close
The timing matters just to take the dose

Empty pockets tell the stories

And there's no destiny when everyone's your enemy
Take your jealous heart and cast it into stone
You'll regret it all
Living behind your wall
And you'll never fall in love
If you don't fall in love

Broken hearts and torn up letters
Girl you just can't dance forever
If you want to make it better

The nights are getting darker
And the wind is cold
The summer sun
Has now become so old

Her closest friends
Were never meant to fade
With all these dreams
That didn't make the grade

Close the doors but never look inside
Time will tell if all your love has died
Empty pockets tell the stories

And there's no destiny when everyone's your enemy
Take your jealous heart and cast it into stone
You'll regret it all
Living behind your wall
And you'll never fall in love
If you don't risk it all

Broken hearts and torn up letters
Girl you just can't dance forever
If you want to make it better
Whoa

Broken hearts and torn up letters
Girl you just can't dance forever
If you want to make it better
Times like these won't last forever

Close the doors but never look inside
Time will tell if all your love has died
Empty pockets tell the stories

And there's no destiny when everyone's your enemy
Take your jealous heart and cast it into stone
You'll regret it all
Living behind your wall
And you'll never fall in love
If you don't fall in love

You'll regret it all
(Broken hearts and torn up letters)
Living behind your wall
(Girl you just can't dance forever)
And you'll never fall in love if you don't risk it all
(If you want to make it better)

Broken hearts and torn up letters
Girl you just can't dance forever
If you want to make it better
Times like these won't last forever

    General CommentThis is the songs meaning to me



    hands are in her pockets and she's scared to look
    the picture's frozen and she's closed the book
    the jealousy has only got one friend
    and Joey's heart was never meant to mend
    [I don't wanna see me ex with his ex GF who he cheated on me with cause it hurts so much, and im jealous of her and i wanna be in her place]
    walking faster now, she holds it close
    the timing matters just to take the dose
    empty pockets tell the stories
    [I try as hard as i can NOT to see them together to avoid the pain]

    and there's no destiny when everyone's your enemy
    take your jealous heart and cast it into stone
    [its hard to get threw all this when no one understands, and sending my jealous heart into stone, is like making me not care anymore about anything and everyone and life in general]
    and you'll regret it all
    living behind your wall
    and you'll never fall in love if you don't fall at all
    [That ill regret acting this way cause im just wasting my time dwelling over something that will never change so whats the point? I took a chance and it got fucked up, but now i gotta give other ppl a chance because than ill never fall in love sheltering m heart]


    nights are getting darker and the wind is cold
    the summer sun has now become so old
    [are relationship ended when the weather started getting cold, and we got together in the summer and now im looking at realizing how long ago it was]
    your closest friends were never meant to fade
    with all these dreams that didn't make the grade
    [he was a really good friend to me before we went out, and maybe are friend ship shouldnt fade just because all my dreams of m and him being together and happy didnt work out]
    close the doors but never look inside
    time will tell if all the love has died
    empty pockets tell the stories
    [forget about what he has done and try not to remember, its in the past now, and maybe in the future we can tell if we will ever be together, because true love never dies.]


    broken hearts and torn up letters
    girl you just can't dance forever
    if you wanna make it better
    times like these won't last forever
    [of course i had a broken heart, and torn up letters he gave me, cause i thought obviously ever thing he said was just a bunch of BS, *danceing forever* refers to AVOIDING AND IGNOREING HIM, and if i have a chance to amke things better not to ruin it cause these times dont last forever]

    General Commentits "time will tell if all the love has died"
    i think the song is about people who are always alone because they are jealous, always fighting against everything and everyone even if they don't have to and people who are afraid of the reality and are living a "fun-life"(-> you just can't dance forever) because they don't want to risk anything.

    General Comment"broken hearts and torn up letters
    girl you just can't dance forever,
    if you wanna make it better"----Someone feeling alone and unworthy so they go out every night and "dance", drown their sorrows, now all the want to do it tell them that if they want to make it better then they have to get a grip.

    "Times like these won't last forever"- This person you hide behind isn't who you are going to be forever.

    General Comment"broken hearts and torn up letters"

    If you've been in love once you ought to know that these two CAN go hand in hand, not necessarily though.

    "girl you just can't dance forever
    if you wanna make it better
    times like these won't last forever"

    First I want to say that I think they saved "times like these won't last forever" so that the other two lines would sink in to the listener. After you've come to that realization you need to be told just that thing. Otherwize you risk overbiding your time... And it sucks doing so :/. So take action for love, NOW! :D

    General Commenti thik that in this song the guy and girl both like eachother, but the girl is scarred and doesnt want to be with him. so the guy is trying to tell her that she will never be happy if she doesnt take the chance in the fist place. "And you'll never fall in love if you don't fall at all..."
