Boys Like Girls – Broken Man lyrics

I want to scream until no sound comes out and you've learned your lesson
I want to swallow these pills to get to sleep
So I don't have to make a bad impression
I need to start to be myself
'Cause I'm sick of everybody else

I won't let you bring me down
It's here
And now I'm breaking out
I will learn to love again
But I will stand a broken man

I wanna run, but only far enough to make you miss me
I wanna take back all the shit that I have done
But I guess you are better off without me
I need to start to be myself
'Cause I'm sick of everybody else

I won't let you bring me down
It's here and now
I'm breaking out
I will learn to love again
But I will stand a broken man

I took one big step and I looked away
And then I thought of all the things that I wanted to say
I'm always too late
You never got your story straight
I'm always up late
I think I'm everything you hate

I took one big step and I looked away
And then I thought of all the things that I wanted to say
I'm always too late
You never got your story straight
I'm always up late
I think I'm everything you hate

I took one big step and I looked away
And then I thought of all the things that I wanted to say
I'm always too late
You never got your story straight
I'm always up late
I think I'm everything you hate

I won't let you bring me down
It's here and now
I'm breaking out
I will learn to love again
But I will stand a broken man

(I took one big step and I looked away)
I won't let you bring me down
(And then I thought of all the things that I wanted to say)
It's here and now I'm breaking out
(I'm always too late you never got your story straight I'm always up late I think I'm everything you hate)
I will learn to love again
(I took one big step then I looked away, and then I thought of all the things that I wanted to say)
But I will stand a broken man
(I'm always too late you never got your story straight)

    A man, who only wants to forget the bad things that have happened in his past, tries to once more, find out who he really is. After his last relationship, he tried many different ways to get her back. He loved her more than she knew. He had tried many different things, none of which were sucessful. He simply wants to forget everything he has tried, and start over again, but dearly needs someone to love. He will eventually get over her, but he will always have the "Heart scars", and always hide them as well.

    I love the reference to the pills and how badly he wants to be vindictive, 'scream 'til no sound comes out and you learned your lesson, ' 'run only far enough to make you miss me. ' whoever this 'you' is, he's having trouble not dwelling on them, and in order to see the full picture of what he was doing he had to take that step away to get a fresh view point. The bitterness toward people in general he feels when he's going through this cathartic process is also striking, as he's 'sick of everybody else. ' it's almost like a tragic hero - he's done things he wants to apologize for, he's always too late, and here's where the image of him as a broken man truly settles in.

    LMFAO. @lovesongs 1, I can't insault you, your comment made me laugh too hard! .
    @Jaron Johnson and andintheclear you guys gave really good descriptions :),
    My favourite part of this song is the "I took one big step and i looked away and then i thought of all the things i wanted to say i'm always too late you never got your story straight, I'm always up late, i think I'm everything you hate"
    -because hes realizing that no matter what he does he wont be good enough for her and there just isn't a point in trying and he just has to move on because shes the one in the wrong, and he just had to step away from it all to see that.
