Justin Hayward – Broken Dream lyrics
One more illusion shattered
One more broken dream
Oh that the morning brings the sun
Gone are the days when I could bounce right back again
See how the tears roll down
Like sweet summer rain
Where does it leave me now
I find myself so free again

Even the smallest traces
Of your sweet perfume
Open the flood gates and I m helpless
Now as the moonlight shadows
Cast across my room
Only the whispered words
Are heard in the night
Only a silent prayer
I love you still
I always will

Out of the dark I stumbled
Into the light
Only my fear has tumbled
I think I always knew
That I would run to you

Somewhere there's children playing
Somewhere far away
Running with open arms to greet me
Over the hill the sunset
Dies and fades away
I turn and I close the door
With one last goodbye
I will return no more
I'll take my heart and let it fly

    I think the song is about the loss of a great love. I can identify with the lyrics in that I screwed up many years ago and lost the beautiful love of my ex-wife. We separated in 1994 and divorced in 2001. During those years between the separation and divorce I hoped and prayed we could reconcile, but unfortunately for me it wasn't to be. For her I no longer exist. Even though 14 have passed I still love her so the lyrics in this song strike hard and true, especially where Justin sings "I love you still, I always will." However, the last verses of the song sounds (which I may be wrong) like this man is going to commit suicide when Justin sings "I turn and close the door, with one last good bye. I will return no more, I'll take my heart and let it fly." This I hope I am wrong about because I don't think Justin would promote or encourage suicide which is evident in "Billy" another selection on Justin ' s CD "The View From The Hill." Though I still love and miss my ex-wife immensely, suicide has never been option. I do wish I could have met someone else that could free my heart, but it never happened.

    I think this is about the woman he loved and lost when he wrote "Nights in White Satin" Though I truly think he loves Marie greatly and has been faithful to her, I don't think he's ever been able to forget who I call his "Satin Sheet Girl" When he sang "Nights", the love, the passion, and the pain of losing her is so heartrending in his voice, it makes me want to cry. I understand his feelings because I have had a love and loss like that, and it just stays in your heart--no matter how much you love your partner. It's nearly impossible to let go.

    I think the song is a metaphor. Particularly at the end when he sings "I turn and I close the door with one last goodbye. I will return no more I'll take my heart and let it fly". I believe he's referencing the fact that he's no longer going to wallow in those memories and is ready to move on with his life.
