Broken Hearts, Torn Up Letters And The Story Of A Lonely Girl Lyrics - Lostprophets

Review The Song (10)



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
sponsored links
And you'll never fall in love
If you don't fall at all

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

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 at all

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...

Bass Slapper | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/22/10

This is my fav song to play my bass guitar with. whoever says that this song is emo probably a little insecure or has trouble discerning what type of genre the music is that they listen to. Lostprophets, for example can either be categorized as post-hardcore or alternative rock.



Love this song! | Reviewer: Vinny | 11/14/08

The first stanza and second half of the chorus (same thing by the way)seems to be a friend telling his/her friend that she isn't moving on, that maybe she needs to change something in her life.

Then they seem to go into a story, saying that the girl is jealous of her boyfriend's lady friends, or maybe someone else's relationship, and the last two lines imply that maybe she's overdosed to settle her pain (very 'emo' by the way, you have the wrong understanding of what 'emo' is anyway), only it never works.

I agree with whoever mentioned that the friend in the first part of the chorus "Living behind your wall" is trying to tell her to come out from that shelter and actually let yourself fall for once.

And the second non-chorus stanza they talk about how the summer is ending, and how maybe it all is ending too, but that her close friends, like the one who'd be singing this song, would always stick around, no matter what. They also mention the death of dreams, "With all these dreams/That didn't make the grade" (also 'emo') In the last three lines of this stanza, he's telling her to move on.

As emo as a hyperactive badger. | Reviewer: Gen | 10/31/08

Not Emo. Not at all.

Basically, It looks like its about a girl who dosn't want anything to change. But everythings changing around her and she can't accept it. The chorus seems to be be telling her that she has to come out from behind her 'walls' and get on with life.

Can't dance forever, girl...



not.emo.sweet | Reviewer: Jazzie Valentine | 7/28/08

This song is not emo. It's is actually really sweet if you thik about it. It is like somebody telling their best friend to move on and to live again. it is definantly my favorite song on that album. It is constantly running through my head.



Agreed. Not Emo. | Reviewer: Emily | 4/26/08

This song isn't emo in the slightest! Whoever said it was is silly. (:
It's an amazing song, I love it to pieces. It's ever so amazing, I love the lyrics... They apply to many people in a lot of different ways, it just depends on which perspective you're looking at them from.
Most definitely NOT emo!



not emo.i agree. | Reviewer: Stephay | 2/10/08

this song isn't emo. actually its one of my favorites. i like songs that talk about what i go through. and this is one of them. emo talks stupid crap like "go cut yourself" "kill yourself" but this is just a song about life.
hip hip;))



just not emo | Reviewer: Mix | 12/28/07

it's basically telling someone to get over it, in the most encouraging and supportive way possible. it's not emo just cause the lead singer has a fringe.



agree | Reviewer: N8 | 11/9/07

This song is not emo at all. Believe me I love emo music and this is not emo. I love this song though! Just because it says "Broken Hearts" doesn't make it emo!! ;)



agreement | Reviewer: Kelsey | 11/6/07

I agree with KS, this song is definitely not emo.
It's one of my favorites and I'm not really into the whole 'emo' style to begin with. Besides, the beat is way too upbeat for an emo song in my opinion. This song=love



not emo | Reviewer: KS | 7/26/07

I've heard people call this emo, but it's just the opposite. "Times like these wont last forever..." is a lot different then "Go kill yourself"
