Lyrics

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

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

play I walk alone
play I walk alone
play I walk alone
play I walk a...

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

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

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

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

play I walk alone
play I walk alone
play I walk alone
play I walk a...

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

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

play I walk alone
play I walk a...

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

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

meaning Meaning

What this song really means is that the narrator is depressed due to his failures, and he wants someone to break him out of this. It is a song I can relate to. This song describes Jesus of Suburbia's state of mind while he is leaving his home town.

Armstrong called Boulevard the 'hangover' song, and that's pretty much what it is.
Coming after Holiday this song describes the feeling of loneliness that Jesus of Suburbia has to face after the party is over. After finally breaking free and entering the City.

'Boulevard of Broken Dreams' has a sole meaning of where you walk alone and you think where all of your dreams are broke into pieces. And that's what the song is pretty much about. It sounds depressing and it is.

Walking a lonely road is not only a one-time realization of your loneliness. Going through life on your own you get so used to the solitude that this lonely road becomes your home, and your actual life.
