This song is so real and RELEVANT. It used to be so much easier to make your way through life. It’s getting to be more and more of a struggle. I love the ray of hope at the end. I am always shocked by how seamlessly you write country songs.

gosh, frank, so much to like about this. well set up and I like the imagery, etc.  And the positive ending I was expecting an experienced writer as yourself to do.  My only small concern, is the title itself. Having the word Beyond in it. It works for me at the end better thad it does for the other choruses, It just seems awkward, more so than just “Broken Dreams”  but that’s just me. Maybe other people have no problem with it. great singer & prod!

Beyond Broken Dreams

Written by Frank Renfordt


When dad found that college flyer in her mail

he said forget your thoughts of getting a degree

Honey I'm so sorry we don't have that kind of money

college is an out of reach luxury

Bubbles bursting in the sun
Loosing faith is not much fun

Blue ain't just the color of her jeans 

Trapped in this two-lane town

Nowhere to go but down

On the other side the grass looks so green

on this side of 
beyond broken dreams

She always wanted to be an actress in L.A.

Fate only works if you meet it half way

Oh no she couldn't find courage to let him go 

when his blue eyes were begging her to stay

Bubbles bursting in the sun

Loosing faith is not much fun

Blue ain't just the color of her jeans 

Trapped in this two-lane town

Nowhere to go but down

On the other side the grass looks so green

on this side of 
beyond broken dreams

Now she's waiting tables at the local bowling alley 

wearing low cut shirts to get a better tip

The going sure gets tough, the money’s barely enough 

to cover trade school while raising up her kid

Bubbles bursting in the sun

Loosing faith is not much fun

Blue ain't just the color of her jeans 

Trapped in this two-lane town

Nowhere to go but down

On the other side the grass looks so green 

on this side of 
beyond broken dreams

She’s kept her grade average up

and been recommended by the Dean
Soon she’ll will graduate

beyond broken dreams
