What Becomes of the Broken Hearted
by Joe Cocker



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

[Chorus]
What becomes of the broken hearted
Who have love that's now departed
I know I've got to find some kind of piece of mind

Roots of love grow all around
But for me they come tumbling down
Every day heart aches grow a little stronger
I can't stand this pain much longer

Walk in shadows searching for light
Cold and alone no comfort in sight
Hoping and praying for someone to care
Always moving but going no where

[Chorus]

I'm searching though I don't succeed
But someones love leaves a growing need
Always lost there's no place for beginning
All that's left is an unhappy ending

[Chorus]
