"Heartbreak World" as written by Mark Weinberg and Matt / Nathanson....
Lets all pack up and move this year
Slips the liars and disappear
Leave memories for auctioneers
And those just standing still
They'll miss the taste of wanting you
Call out your name like I still do
But they never said a word that's true
And they only hold you down

In this heartbreak world
It doesn't matter
With their tired talk of better days
And dreams they had but can't remember
Come on lets make this dream that's barely half awake come true

Let's move out of Los Angeles
Just drive until this summer gives
And forget the lies we use to live
Cause we're gone

In this heartbreak world
It doesn't matter
With their tired talk of better days
And dreams they had but can't remember
Come on lets make this dream that's barely half awake come true

In this heartbreak world
It doesn't matter
With their tired talk of better days
And dreams they had but can't remember
Come on lets make this dream that's barely half awake come true

In this heartbreak world
With tired talk
And this heartbreak world
Where nothing matters
Come on lets make this dream that's barely half awake
Come on lets make this dream that's barely half awake come true

    General CommentThis is about moving on and forgetting your past. About the hope of leaving tough times behind you and chasing a once-shining-but-now-fading ambition.

    General CommentI really love this song, I can really relate to just wanting to run away and search for what I've always wanted.
    I think the song is more about achieving dreams then running away though.
    The first stanza's two lines I see as a metaphor for getting up and doing something to achieve what you want, and how you shouldn't stop going for something and should not dwell not he past but create more.
    It sounds like people are holding him back and just talk about improving themselves and that all the pain they talk about is just imagined because they dwell on it. To me its really about just doing something to reach your dream.

    General Comment"C'mon lets make this dream thats barely half awake come true"
    I can totally relate to this line, there are times when i feel like i can't reach far enough to touch my dreams, but i still try...Gosh...we're all made of dreams, and we can make them come true if we just forget the world we live in and go get'em.

    General CommentI know this isnt anything like what the song actually means but to me it means something different. i had goals of making junior nationals and all american. my coach was then fired. the first night of practice after he was fired i heard this song on the way home. The line "C'mon lets make this dream thats barely half awake come true" made me think that i shouldnt just give up and i can still achieve my goals. i am now on a new team with a new coach and i am gonna reach my goals

    General CommentI think this song is so inspiring. The title might turn people away, but its saying that although people try to tear you down. The heartbreak world (breaks people hearts and dreams) has so much to offer and that if you try and brush pass the fact it is a heartbreak world you can make your dreams come true. Which to me also brings back the title if you look at it and although it just seems like a sad pessimistic song you realize how inspirational and optimistic it really is.
