PostSubject: Break Your Heart (LYRICS)   Break Your Heart (LYRICS) Icon_minitimeTue Aug 05, 2014 9:37 am

it would break your heart if you knew me well. see, i have run so far that i’ve lost myself and there are things i have seen that i never will tell. they drove me out of mind and inside of myself.

and oh, my my, it would break your heart. if you knew how i loved you, if i showed you my scars. if i played you my favorite song lying here, in the dark. oh my my, it would break your heart.

it would bring you to tears if you knew what i know. see, i spent all of my money on second hand love but i trusted somebody way and back when. and i loved her like fire until it drove me insane.

and oh, my my, it would break your heart. if you knew how i loved you, and if i showed you my scars. if i played you my favorite song lying here in the dark. oh my my, it would break your heart.

and you can lean on me until your heart don’t beat. i’ll leave you lying there on the floor. and you can lean on me until your heart don’t beat. i’ll leave spinning there on the floor.




----------original post------------

It would break your heart
If you knew me well
See, I have on so far
That I've lost myself
There are things i have seen
That I never will tell
It drove me out of my mind
and inside myself

And oh my, my
It would break you heart
If you knew how I loved you
If i showed you my scars
If i played you my favorite songs
Lying here in the dark
Oh my, my
It would break your heart

It would bring you to tears
If you knew what i know
See i spent all my money
On secondhand love
but I trusted somebody
Who wait (can't understand that line)
And i loved her like fire
Until it drove me insane

And oh my, my
It would break you heart
If you knew how i loved you
If i showed you my scars
If i played you my favorite songs
Right in here in the dark
Oh my, my
It would break your heart

And you can lean on me
Until your heart don't beat
Leave you lying there on the floor

And you can lean on me
Until your heart don't beat
Leave you spinning there on the floor

And oh my ,my
It would break you heart
If you knew how i loved you
If i showed you my scars
If i played you my favorite songs
Right in here in the dark
Oh my, my
It would break your heart
(X2)

Until it breaks your heart

I haven't posted on here in goodness knows how long, probably when the last album was released and I heard 45 on Radio 1 (UK) but I came straight on the forum after I'd listened to 'Break your Heart' for about the 5th time. Epic tears over this tune, haven't cried (OK wept) over a Gaslight song since I first heard the acoustic version of 1930 years ago. It's not for everyone I'm sure, but to me this is beautiful and sums up me really. Thanks again lads, good to see you back in my life, see you further on up the road (cheers for that line Bruce).

I think it's "secondhand love" as opposed to "second in love".

I was driving out on some back roads yesterday listening to the album, didn't really know how I felt until "Break Your Heart" played. I started balling like a newborn. Something about it is just raw and moving. It is soulful.

It would break your heart
If you knew me well
See, I have gone so far
That I've lost myself
There are things i have seen
That I never will tell
It drove me out of my mind
and inside myself

And oh my, my
It would break you heart
If you knew how I loved you
If I showed you my scars
If I played you my favorite song
Lying here in the dark
Oh my, my
It would break your heart

It would bring you to tears
If you knew what I know
See, I spent all my money
On secondhand love
but I trusted somebody
Oh, way back when
And I loved her like fire
Until it drove me insane

And oh my, my
It would break you heart
If you knew how I loved you
If I showed you my scars
If played you my favorite song
Lying here in the dark
Oh my, my
It would break your heart

And you can lean on me
Until your heart don't beat
Leave you lying there on the floor
You can lean on me
Until your heart don't beat
Leave you spinning there on the floor

And oh my, my
It would break you heart
If you knew how I loved you
If I showed you my scars
If I played you my favorite songs

Oh my, my

I feel exactly the same. I just keep singing the Johny Cash version of Won't Back Down along to this song and it's.. almost identical.
If I didn't know that song however Smile I'd bet I'd love this one.

This one's my favorite track on Get Hurt. Add me to the sobbed-like-a-baby-when-I-first-heard-it club. (I had the album on my mp3 player and was sitting by the ocean the first time I listened to it.)

Brian got into drugs during the divorce, right? In my opinion, there's a lot of things in this song implying it.

Specifically, verse 2. "See I spent all my money on secondhand love." Secondhand love, I think, is referring to alcohol or drugs. This could also refer to escorts/prostitutes to fill the void of his ex-wife but I really don't think Brian is the type of dude to call a lady of the night. And then he goes on to talk about the relationship between him and an addiction (I trusted somebody way and back when and I loved her life fire until it drove me insane) I really don't think that verse is talking about a person.

Random ramblings over this song while I am learning it on piano.

I dont think that he got into drugs .. maybe secondhand love can also refer to the music or sth like that

Drugs? Hookers? I think it has to mean something other than that.

"Drugs" can also mean the pills he's singing about on other songs (like Stay Vicious), so not necessarily hard drugs or something like that.

Not that I'm sure it's the right meaning of these verses, but it's not a bad suggestion.
