"Broken Dreams Club" as written by Christopher Owens and Chet White Jr....
It's hard enough to be alone
It's harder still to spend so long
Looking for happiness
Feeling so restless

I know you feel like I do too
Even though I'm close to you
I can't be what you need
You're just as lost as me

I just want to get high
But everything keeps bringing me down
If you know something I don't
Come on and help me out

But I just don't understand
How the world keeps going nowhere

There's still so many people poor
Can't get my head around this war
All of this senselessness
Feeling so helpless

So many people live and die
And never even question why
All of their dreams are gone
How can they carry on?

I would like some peace of mind
I've got such a heavy heart
And you were broken down
Before you had a chance to start

And I just don't understand
How the world keeps going nowhere

    General CommentThis song's message is so simple and beautiful and TRUE. I think it's about someone who's in love with his best friend and they're incredibly close, but in the end bring each other down and the singer doesn't think they can be together. He just worries about all the horrible things happening in the world, and so does his friend. He needs to find someone who can lift him up.

    My InterpretationI think this song has something to do with a girl and a guy both getting over lost love. Maybe she has been getting over it longer than him? He's seeking comfort anywhere he might find it.. he knows that they aren't what each other need or want but they are there for each other so maybe it feels right. He knows that his broken heart is meaningless is a world filled with so much hurt and pain and if they can keep going on, he should be able to as well?
    It kind of throws me for a loop in the middle when it just starts talking about the war.
