Music Lyrics #14 – Dreaming With A Broken Heart (John Mayer)


I admit that I’m not the biggest John Mayer fan, but some of his songs I really like. After following his recent journey to recovery from a throat injury, I could imagine how painful it was to think he wouldn’t sing again. This one song he wrote, “Dreaming With a Broken Heart” seems to have many meanings. On the surface it seems certainly about love lost. But in a deeper sense, that love could be a child or a loved one who suffered as well. I love the song and the lyrics and thought I’d share them here with you.

When you’re dreaming with a broken heart
The waking up is the hardest part
You roll outta bed and down on your knees
And for a moment you can hardly breathe
Wondering, “Was she really here?
Is she standing in my room?”
No she’s not, ’cause she’s gone, gone, gone, gone, gone….

When you’re dreaming with a broken heart
The giving up is the hardest part
She takes you in with her crying eyes
Then all at once you have to say goodbye
Wondering, “Could you stay my love?
Will you wake up by my side?”
No she can’t, ’cause she’s gone, gone, gone, gone, gone….

Now do I have to fall asleep with roses in my hand?
Do I have to fall asleep with roses in my hand?
Do I have to fall asleep with roses in my hand?
Do I have to fall asleep with roses in my, roses in my hand?
would you get them if I did?
No you won’t, ’cause you’re gone, gone, gone, gone, gone….

When you’re dreaming with a broken heart
The waking up is the hardest part
