"How Can You Mend A Broken Heart?" as written by and Barry Alan/gibb Gibb....
I can think of younger days
When living for my life
Was everything a man could want to do
I could never see tomorrow

But I was never told about the sorrow
How can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the rain from falling down?
How can you stop the sun from shining?

What makes the world go round?
How can you mend this broken man?
How can a loser ever win?
Please help me mend my broken heart

And let me live again
I can still feel the breeze
That rustles through the trees
And misty memories of days gone by

We could never see tomorrow
But no one said a word about the sorrow
How can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the rain from falling down

How can you stop the sun from shining
What makes the world go round

And how can you mend this broken man?
How can a loser ever win?
Please help me mend my broken heart
And let me live again

La la la la la la, la la la la
La la la la la la, la la la la

Please help me mend my broken heart
And let me live again

Da da da da
Da da da da, da da da da da, da

    General CommentThis is my song of choice to angst to. Some people have their emo bands, I... have my Bee Gees CDs.

    I love this song to death, still.

    General CommentYeah man! Bee Gees are fucking wicked.. I so agree... but this song just makes me feel happy.. I don't know why.. I guess I'll just have to wait until I'm going through a break-up and it'll make me cry.. But I guess it's just the way they sing it that makes me feel happy.. i really need to get one of their CDs.. But yeah, the song is simply about someone goign through a breakup...

    General CommentOn my list of saddest songs of all time. Love the Major 7th chords (during the words "How can you mend ...") and the soulful but subtle singing (eg, at "I can still feel the breeze") Transports me back to one warm September evening in 1980. Ah, but I pushed her out of my life - biggest mistake I ever made.

    Song MeaningThis song makes me cry almost nonstop tears whenever I hear it - it reminds me of my first love, and the incredibly painful end of our relationship, which was about a year ago. We had been together nearly eleven years. I thought I'd never recover from the shock, sadness, regret, and frustration I felt, and I was actually considering suicide because I thought I'd never get over it. Even now I have no interest in dating or getting into a relationship, because I remember how much it hurt to have it end. I try not to think about it too much, but it's gradually getting easier.
