"Breaking My Heart Again" as written by and Matthew Nicholas/oliver Hales....
Need to know
Don't wanna know
Already know
I've seen the signs
I watch you as you pull yourself away from me.

Can't believe
I wanna believe
How can I believe?
You're making me doubt
I thought I knew you
I don't even know myself.

I'm losing faith
I'm losing all faith

You're breaking my heart
Breaking my heart
You're breaking my heart again
Don't ask me to start
Ask me to start
Don't ask me to start again
Start again

I wanna fight
Afraid to fight
Why don't I fight?
And make you see
I hold my breath
And disappear inside myself

I'm losing strength
I'm losing all strength

You're breaking my heart
Breaking my heart
You're breaking my heart again
Don't ask me to start
Ask me to start
Don't ask me to start again
Start again

Oh, you're breaking my heart again

Don't ask me to start
Ask me to start
Just don't ask me to start again
Start again

No
Oh, no, no

I'm losing you
I'm losing, oh, you

    General Commentwell, matt can't believe what's happening with the girl he loves...but I just can't believe no one has commented on this song. it is kind of self-explanatory...person realizes his relationship is falling apart. it's so gorgeous, though. it sounds almost like a lullaby, especially in the refrain. the song itself is heartbreaking, and listening to it if you're going through heartbreak yourself is just masochistic.

    General CommentThis song and Hales' voice drives me insane. Its strange how the most subtle songs strike the deepest tones. Anyway, again Matt Hales seems to put into simple words what everyone seems to feel.

    General CommentThis song is so pretty. Definitely my favorite by Aqualung. It reminds me of my two good friends who just broke up, and one of them is so upset with himself.

    General Comment"Can't believe, I wanna believe
    How can I believe?"

    "I thought I knew you
    I don't even know myself."

    "I'm losing faith"

    "I wanna fight, Afraid to fight, Why don't I fight?"

    These lyrics pretty much sum how I felt the first few days after my boyfriend broke up with me. I didn't want to believe that we had to end things; I couldn't believe it was coming from someone who loved me and I loved; I wanted to fight back and resist but none of that strength came to me. And I even thought I would give up on love.

    I guess that's how torn apart and lost we feel after breaking up. You just have to find yourself again..

    General Commenti think the key word here is "again." you're breaking my heart AGAIN. she keeps breaking his heart, but then he just keeps getting back with her despite the pain. hence why he begs her "don't ask me to start again" so as to avoid future heartbreak.

    MemoryI can relate to this song. The meaning isn't exactly concealed, but it's incredibly relevant for me.

    'Need to know, don't wanna know'... you need to know that the other person doesn't feel the same to know where you stand, but equally it's the one thing you don't want to hear, so you skirt around the issue.

    'I've seen the signs'... you've seen them act this way before, and you know that they're uncomfortable and want to break out.

    'I thought I knew you, I don't even know myself'... they're acting differently, unlike how they acted when they were happy, and your insecurities and paranoia are making you act differently yourself. You know neither of the characters you're presented with.

    'Don't ask me to start again'... when you're getting over someone, the last thing you need is the first thing you want: for them to ask for you back. At least if they don't, you're left to get over them; if they ask for you back, it brings back all your feelings for them and all you want to do is say yes, just for the good times, when you know it'll never be the same.

    'I wanna fight, afraid to fight'... this is particularly important for me. I always wanted to confront him and ask him what the hell he was playing at, and why he wouldn't just tell me outright if something was wrong, but I knew I couldn't because despite the frustration of never knowing how he felt, I didn't want to push him away by seeming like a psychotic, paranoid girlfriend. So I didn't fight.

    I also agree with the person above me about the importance of 'again'. You're constantly treated awfully, but you're prepared to tolerate that and act like a doormat to be with them, but now they don't even want you as a doormat.

    General CommentBasically, this song is about a girl who continues to break his heart. He doesn't want to "start" again...get back with her, because he knows she will hurt him again, like always.
