"Breaking My Own Heart" as written by Stephen Andrew Booker and Aimee Ann Duffy....
Left To My Ambitions I Find Myself Feeling
Short Of Breath And Losing Hope Again

When Will I Be Free
When Will I Feel Alive
I Am At My End And I Can't Breath

I Can't Breathe Everything I Do Is Useless
I Can't Do This On My Own I'm Fading
Too Many Times I've Left In Silence
This Time I Won't Give Up So Soon

Crying Out For Some Relief
I Keep Breaking My Own Heart
Giving Up On My Resolve
I Keep Trying But I Keep Failing

This All Seems So Familiar
I Think We've Been Here Once Before
Saying Sorry Once Again
Saying Sorry Once Again

I Can't Breathe Everything I Do Is Useless
I Can't Do This On My Own I'm Fading
Too Many Times I've Left In Silence
This Time I Won't Give Up So Soon

    General CommentI love this song. I mean, the vocal melodies are so awesome. It's oppressive with it's sadness, 'cause I think there's something personal to it with me.

    TheGreatDane, you're right.

    General CommentThis song is probably about being determined to change something in your life, but you are extremely dependent on other people, an example could be the workplace.

    You want to be self-sufficient and get over your own shortcomings, but you only get so far until you mess it all up and the only thing you can say is "sorry" because everytime you try to "change things," it blows up in your face, and everything you were trying to make up for, you suddenly remember all the times and it kills you because it keeps happening despite how hard you try to stop.

    At the end of the song, the person depicted decides to not give up on their resolve so easily and so quickly to really try and change things again, even if it means failing again.
