"Broken Heart" as written by and Matthew Scott Taylor Tony Richard Thaxton....
I?ll start this broken heart
I?ll fix it up so it will work again
Better than before

Then I?ll star in a mystery
A tragic tale of all that's yet to come
With fingers crossed, there will be love

But I get carried away with every day
And every fantasy
The deeper the wound, the harder I swoon
And wish that that was me

So much to say but no words to convey
The loneliness building with each passing day
But I'm getting used to it, you have to get used to it

I?ll devise the best disguise
A brand new look and take them by surprise
They'll never guess what's not inside

I?ll express myself with ease
With confidence and character complete
With fingers crossed they'll talk to me

But I get carried away with every page
In every magazine
The cheaper the thrill, the deeper I fill
My head with blasphemy

So much to say but no words to convey
The loneliness building with each passing day
But I'm getting used to it, you have to get used to it

I?ll destroy this useless heart
I?ll fuck it up so it'll never beat again
Not just for me but for anyone

But I get carried away with every phrase
And made up malady
The longer I hide behind these lies
The more I disintegrate

So much to say but no words to convey
The loneliness building with each passing day
Never get used to it, you just have to live with it

    General Commentmaybe it's about someone who broke his heart, and now he's just trying everything to fix it - all sorts of dates and putting on a self-confident front.

    General Commenteasy Meaning
    It's about wanting to be in love, or to have someone to love.
    Maybe from after a bad past relationship or because hes never been inlove before
    which is why he talks about his lonliness and uselessness

    what do you think?

    General Comment"With every phrase and made up melody"

    It sounds more like he's saying "malady"
    Like a disease or condition. A broken heart can be referred to as a malady sometimes (not really literally a disease though).

    I could see it making sense either way though, melody or malady.

    General CommentYeah, I think he does say "malady". Which means, in the context of "made up malady" he keeps thinking that there's something terribly wrong with him, since his girlfriend left him or since he can't find true love. He just wants to mess up his heart so it will never cause him any pain again. This is actually a pretty sad song hidden behind a catchy chorus and melody, like most of MCS's songs. It's great =]

    General CommentYep fallingangel, much like Saves The Day, MCS is great at singing some really, really sad lyrics, but putting them in some very catchy songs.

    This is one of my personal favorites from MCS. I'm looking forward to the new album.

    General CommentI think that it's
    "I'll devise the best disguise
    A brand new look and take them by surprise
    They'll never guess what's not inside"
    That's what I heard at least...

    But this is making me so excited for their new CD! I can't wait!
