About Shattered Dreams

"Shattered Dreams" is a song by English group Johnny Hates Jazz. Written by the band's lead singer Clark Datchler, their major-label debut single was a worldwide hit. "Shattered Dreams" entered the UK Singles Chart in March 1987 at #92 but gained popularity through extensive radio play and video rotation on MTV and quickly climbed the charts, peaking at #5 in May 1987, spending three weeks at that position and a total of 16 weeks in the chart. It went on to become a top 20 hit throughout Europe, even reaching the top 10 in many countries. The song fared even better the following year in the U. S. There, "Shattered Dreams" was released early in 1988 with a totally different music video, shot entirely in black and white and directed by David Fincher, which Datchler actually preferred. The single peaked at #1 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart for one week and #2 for three non-consecutive weeks on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart, kept from the top spot by "Anything for You" by Gloria Estefan and Miami Sound Machine and also "One More Try" by George Michael (both of which topped the Adult Contemporary chart themselves, for three weeks each). A midtempo club remix of the track was released on 12" vinyl.

So much for your promises
They died the day you let me go
Caught up in a web of lies
But it was just too late to know
I thought it was you
Who would stand by my side

And now you've given me, given me
Nothing but shattered dreams, shattered dreams
Feel like I could run away, run away
From this empty heart

You said you'd die for me, 

Woke up to reality
And found the future not so bright
I dreamt the impossible
That maybe things could work out right
I thought it was you
Who would do me no wrong

But now you've given me, given me
Nothing but shattered dreams, shattered dreams
Feel like I could run away, run away
From this empty heart

You've given me, given me
Nothing but shattered dreams, shattered dreams
Feel like I could run away, run away
From this empty heart

From this empty heart
I thought it was you who said they'd die for love

And now you've given me, given me
Nothing but shattered dreams, shattered dreams
Feel like I could run away, run away
From this empty heart

You've given me, given me
Nothing but shattered dreams, shattered dreams
Feel like I could run away, run away
From this empty heart

Oh no no no you said you'd die for me
Oh oh die for me
So much for your promises
