about

A jazz standard delivered in a fresh way, infused with a smoky soulful vibe, lending the classic song a darker-than-usual perspective that more evocatively illustrates the thoroughfare's hopeless denizens.

lyrics

BOULEVARD OF BROKEN DREAMS
written by Harry Warren & Al Dubin

****

I walk along the street of sorrow,
The boulevard of broken dreams.
Where gigolo and gigolette
Can take a kiss without regret
So they forget their broken dreams.

You laugh tonight and cry tomorrow,
When you behold your shattered dreams.
And gigolo and gigolette
Awake to find their eyes are wet
With tears that tell of broken dreams.

Here is where you`ll always find me,
Always walking up and down.
But I left my soul behind me
In an old cathedral town.

The joy that you find here, you borrow...
You cannot keep it long, it seems.
And gigolo and gigolette
Can sing a song and dance along
The boulevard of broken dreams.

Here is where you`ll always find me,
Always walking up and down.
But I left my soul behind me
In an old cathedral town.

The joy that you find here, you borrow...
You cannot keep it long, it seems.
And gigolo and gigolette
Can sing a song and dance along
The boulevard of broken dreams.
