Dreaming With a Broken Heart
John Mayer Lyrics


When you're dreaming with a broken heart,
The waking up is the hardest part

You roll out of bed and down on your knees
And for a moment you can hardly breathe
Wondering was she really here
Is she standing in my room?

No, she's not
'Cause she's gone, gone, gone, gone, gone

When you're dreaming with a broken heart,
The giving up is the hardest part

She takes you in with her crying eyes
Then all at once you have to say goodbye
Wondering, could you stay, my love?
Will you wake up by my side?

No, she can't
'Cause she's gone, gone, gone, gone, gone

Now do I have to fall asleep with roses in my hand?
Do I have to fall asleep with roses in my hand?
Do I have to fall asleep with roses in my hand?
Do I have to fall asleep with roses in my, roses in my hands?
Would you get them if I did?

No, you won't
'Cause you're gone, gone, gone, gone, gone

When you're dreaming with a broken heart,
The waking up is the hardest part.

When you’re dreaming with a broken heart
The waking up is the hardest part
You roll out of bed and down on your knees
And for a moment, you can hardly breathe
Wondering, “Was she really here?
Is she standing in my room?”
No she’s not
‘Cause she’s gone, gone, gone, gone, gone

[Verse 2]
When you’re dreaming with a broken heart
The giving up is the hardest part
She takes you in, with her crying eyes
Then, all at once, you have to say goodbye
Wondering, “could you stay my love?
Will you wake up by my side?”
No she can’t
‘Cause she’s gone, gone, gone, gone, gone

[Bridge]
Now, do I have to fall asleep with roses in my hand?
Do I have to fall asleep with roses in my hand?
Now, do I have to fall asleep with roses in my hand?
Do I have to fall asleep with roses in my, roses in my hands?
And would you get them if I did?
No you won’t
‘Cause you’re gone, gone, gone, gone, gone

[Outro]
When you’re dreaming with a broken heart
The waking up is the hardest part



Richard Garcia

When you're dreaming with a broken heart,
The waking up is the hardest part
You roll out of bed and down on your knees
And for a moment you can hardly breathe
Wondering was she really here
Is she standing in my room?
No, she's not
'Cause she's gone, gone, gone, gone, gone
When you're dreaming with a broken heart,
The giving up is the hardest part
She takes you in with her crying eyes
Then all at once you have to say goodbye
Wondering, could you stay, my love?
Will you wake up by my side?
No, she can't
'Cause she's gone, gone, gone, gone, gone
Now do I have to fall asleep with roses in my hand?
Do I have to fall asleep with roses in my hand?
Do I have to fall asleep with roses in my hand?
Do I have to fall asleep with roses in my, roses in my hands?
Would you get them if I did?
No, you won't
'Cause you're gone, gone, gone, gone, gone
When you're dreaming with a broken heart,
The waking up is the hardest part.

I'll never know why this song isn't more popular

Metal Raccoon

It probably got radio airplay. So I'm pretty sure at least hundreds of millions of people have heard it before

Therbeeo

The verses smack, and the bridge is good, but the hook could be better. That's my guess, and also it's a sad song.

Johji Uehara

because it is very sad and people just want to party all day.

this man was my wife's favorite...shes now been gone almost 7 yrs and I still have trouble making it through this song.....

Melanie Adams

I have a hard time making it through without the loss. Prayers!

Stay strong. I lost my boyfriend 10 yrs ago. It’s so painful losing those we love (obviously) and some days it seems unbearable to continue on but I’m certain they’d want us to try to continue on with a happy life...though it seems unfair since they aren’t here. I suppose we should do it for them first then learn how to do it for ourselves. ♥️
