Boulevard of Broken Dreams Song Lyrics

[Verse 1: Billie Joe Armstrong]
I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's home to me, and I walk alone
I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one, and I walk alone

[Pre-Chorus: Billie Joe Armstrong]
I walk alone, I walk alone
I walk alone, I walk a—

[Chorus: Billie Joe Armstrong]
My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes, I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then, I walk alone

[Post-Chorus: Billie Joe Armstrong]
Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah
Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah

[Verse 2: Billie Joe Armstrong]
I'm walking down the line
That divides me somewhere in my mind
On the borderline
Of the edge and where I walk alone
Read between the lines
What's f**ked up, and everything's all right
Check my vital signs
To know I'm still alive, and I walk alone

[Pre-Chorus: Billie Joe Armstrong]
I walk alone, I walk alone
I walk alone, I walk a—

[Chorus: Billie Joe Armstrong]
My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes, I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then, I walk alone

[Post-Chorus: Billie Joe Armstrong]
Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah
Ah-ah, ah-ah
I walk alone, I walk a—

[Bridge: Billie Joe Armstrong]
I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one, and I walk a—

[Chorus: Billie Joe Armstrong]
My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes, I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then, I walk alone
