What Becomes Of The Brokenhearted?

As I walk this land of broken dreams
I have visions of many things
but happiness is just an illusion
Filled with sadness and confusion

What becomes of the brokenhearted
Who had love that's now departed
I know I've got to find some peace of mind, baby

the roots of love grow all around
But for me they come a tumblin' down
Every day heartaches grow a little stronger
I can't stand this pain much longer


I walk in shadows searching for light
Cold and alone, no comfort in sight
Hoping and prayin' for someone to care
Always movin' and goin' nowhere


what becomes of the brokenhearted
Who had love that's now departed
I know I've got to find some peace of mind, help me


I'm searching though I don't succeed
but someone's love there's growing need
If there's no way
all is lost there's no place for a beginning
All that's left is an unhappy ending

Now what's become of the brokenhearted
Who had love that's now departed
I know I've got to find some peace of mind
I'll be searching everywhere
Just to find someone to care
I'll be looking everyday
I know I'm gonna find a way

Nothing's gonna stop me now
I'll find a way somehow
I'll be searching everywhere
Lookin' for someone to share
