John Robert "Joe" Cocker OBE (born 20 May 1944) is an English rock and blues singer, who came to popularity in the 1960s, and is known for his gritty voice, his idiosyncratic arm movements while performing, and his cover versions of popular songs, particularly those of the Beatles. more »

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

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 


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
