"Either Way, I'll Break Your Heart Someday" as written by Michael Francis Flynn and Daniel Layus....
All I have are the way things go
Well I don't know
I just don't know
Make up some simple lies
And compromise
How I live

[Chorus]
Cuz' either way I'll break your heart someday
But leaving you is the last thing on my mind
So when I call
Baby kiss me slow so I don't forget my way back home
When its cold


Sail away
On a wayward ship
With candy lips in my grip
Cheap perfume
Oh it never lies
It can't surprise
Any good advice

[Chorus]

Well I miss you in the winter
Your friends say I should listen
Can't you see I've loved you all along
Well if America don't like me
You can say I finally
The kind of man who only likes the gun
Shoot anyone, shoot anyone

[Chorus]

    General CommentI love this song, and I love the way they sing it. I'm guessing it's about a young relationship. You know you're probably going to date alot of people before you settle.

    That's just my guess. Let me know if it really means something more specific :)

    General CommentI think that it's about a new relationship, and when it's new you don't know whether or not it's going to last, but either way you know someone's going to get hurt. even if they get married and have kids and grow old together, one day someone's going to die and break the other person's heart, not to mention all of those slip ups that happen because we are human. It's a wonderful way to put it...
    so when I go, baby kiss real slow,
    so I don't forget to make my way back home,
    when I go
    which really makes you think he's in it for the long haul, until he dies. :)

    General CommentI think that this song is about a relationship between two people who shouldn't be together. One that everyone knows is not going to work out from the very beginning. He knows he will break her heart someday. But that doesn't mean he doesn't love her or leaving her isn't the last thing on his mind.

    It seems like most of the other comments are about a new relationship and knowing whether or not it will work out. But I guess I hear it as a more complicated relationship...The terms like "wayward ship," "cheap perfume,oh, it never lies and can't supply any good alibis," "compromise how i live," and everything about going home make me wonder if this is about falling in love and pursing a relationship outside of your primary relationship. I guess I feel like its saying i know this will end and we will be heart broken, but lets enjoy it while we still can (so when i go, kiss real slow).
