Music Monday: Boulevard of Broken Dreams by Green Day

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

Thoughts and other ramblings

There isn’t much of a reason for picking Boulevard of a Broken Dreams today, though it kind of goes with my mood. I got to know Green Day back in 2004 when American Idiot came out. It’s the only album from Green Day I listened to a lot, which actually got to me –  even though I didn’t understand a word back then.

Lyrics

I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don’t know where it goes
But it’s home to me and I walk alone

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I’m the only one and I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk a…

My shadow’s the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart’s the only thing that’s beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
‘Til then I walk alone

Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, aaah-ah
Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah

I’m walking down the line
That divides me somewhere in my mind
On the border line
Of the edge and where I walk alone

Read between the lines
Of what’s fucked up and everything’s alright
Check my vital signs
To know I’m still alive and I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk a…

My shadow’s the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart’s the only thing that’s beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
‘Til then I walk alone

Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, aaah-ah
Ah-ah, ah-ah

I walk alone
I walk a…

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I’m the only one and I walk a…

My shadow’s the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart’s the only thing that’s beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
‘Til then I walk alone…

    1. Right? We had a nostalgia party the other day on Discord with a few friends where we listened to a lot of embarrassing hits we used to like/listen to a lot, plus a few good ones like this. I still love this one too 🙂

      1. Haha- I’d probably know that if I heard it, but right now I don’t remember those. But we also had a really great album from Red Hot Chili Peppers, linkin park *shudders* lol, those two good songs from Oasis… really, my favorite decade for music.
