Jimmy Ruffin – What Becomes Of The Brokenhearted lyrics

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

What becomes of the brokenhearted
Who had love that's now departed
I know I've got to find
Some kind of peace of mind, baby

The roots of love grow all around (all around)
But for me they come a-tumblin’ down (come tumbling down)
Every day heartaches grow a little stronger (just a little stronger)
I can't stand this pain much longer

I walk in shadows searching for light (searching for light)
Cold and alone, no comfort in sight (no comfort in sight)
Hopin' and prayin’ for someone who'll care (someone who’ll care)
Always moving and going nowhere

What becomes of the brokenhearted
Who had love that's now departed
I know I've got to find
Some kind of peace of mind, help me, please

I'm searching though, I don't succeed (don’t succeed)
But someone look, there's a growing need (there’s a growing need)
All is lost, there's no place for beginning (no place for beginning)
All that's left is an unhappy ending

Now what becomes of the brokenhearted
Who had love that's now departed
I know I've got to find
Some kind of peace of mind
I'll be searching everywhere
Just to find someone to care
I'll be looking every day (what becomes of the brokenhearted)
I know I'm gonna find a way
Nothing's gonna stop me now (what becomes of the brokenhearted)
I'll find a way somehow
I’ll be searching everywhere

    I heard this yesterday and couldn't get it out of my head. I think these are some of the sadest lyrics I have ever heard. I don' t think I paid much attention to them years ago, but I kept hear ing them today so I looked them up (What becomes of the broken hearted who has love that's now departed? As I wak this land of broken dreams, I have visions of many things, but happiness is just an illusion, filled with sadness and confusion) :(
