"Keep Your Heart Broken" as written by Lauri Yloenen, Pauli Rantasalmi, Aki Hakala and Eero Heinonen....
Enfolding your love in my heart
By the dawn I'll become
The road keeps us apart
For some time I'll be gone.

You promise you swallow your tears when I leave you
You promise to follow the leads I would give you,
You said you would crawl in the dark from the laughter
You said you would long after me ever after.

[Chorus:]
My love will grow black if you heart get stolen
Just promise to keep your heart
One day I'll come back if the door's still open
Just promise to keep your heart broken.

Days go by like the wind
And this life it's too short
It makes no sense to give in
To release you from my thoughts.

I promise to write you I'll always remember,
I promise to try to be back 'till December
I said I must go, I must face this disaster,
You said I would come after you ever after.

[Chorus]

If you just promise to keep your heart
Promise to keep your heart broken
If you just promise to keep your heart...
Broken...broken.

[Chorus]

For ever and after my life
Just promise to keep your heart broken...

    General CommentYeah, agreed. I think it's about like when he has to leave on tour and he's with someone. Like it sucks, and only really serious relationships can truly last things like tours. So that's what I think it's about. I love this song so much, cause I have my own little siuation in which this song is perfect to describe it.

    General CommentI feel that this song is about a guy leaving a girl to go fight a war or something. Not so much about a long-distance relationship

    General CommentI believe in reincarnation, and when I first heard this song, it didn't really mean anything to me, but then my dog, (who was pretty much my sister... actually, pretty much half of me) died, and I started listening to this song harder. "By the dawn I'll be gone" She died before dawn, and she was so young... God was she young... So pretty much as I listen to this song, I hear my dog talking to me, telling me to wait for her while her soul finds a new life connected to mine.

    General Commenti was going through a rut, and once i heard this song i realised it was what i was doing. I was keeping my heart broken for a lost love. This song means a lot to me and the lyrics are really bang on how i feel. its beautiful and i love it. very romantic really.
    I think thats what this song is about... two lovers torn apart, and having to deal with the separation...the struggles and worries of wondering if in the end of the fight, their love will be waiting for them. Preserving your love, not giving in...
    Keep your heart broken is beautiful

    General Commentthis song is very beautiful and is basically about a relationship that is getting torn apart because they have to go their separate ways, but he says that he wants her to never stop loving him and never move on to someone else to always love him and "keep your heart broken" until he returns someday "if the doors still open". just beautiful
