"Breakin'" as written by Tyson Ritter and Nick Wheeler....
Hold on tight
Wrap your arms around me til your knuckles are burning white
All your tears
Couldn't match the bitter taste of all these wasted years

You take take
Everything that wasn't even yours
Wait wait
You don't got a hold of me anymore

In a clear view there's a silhouette
And I watch you and I can't forget
Knew we were done when you locked that door
Yeah I figured it out now
Breaking's what the heart is for
When I see you in a silhouette
And you hold close
Do you feel regret
Keeping me down when I hit that floor
And I figured it out girl
Breaking's what your heart is for

For so long
I've had to bite my tongue but what's the point if the feelings gone
I turn my head
Learned I only see some memory but all I see is red

Don't don't
Say it didn't happen that way
I won't won't
Believe another word that you say

In a clear view there's a silhouette
And I watch you and I can't forget
Knew we were done when you locked that door
Yeah I figured it out now
Breaking's what the heart is for
When I see you in a silhouette
And you hold close
Do you feel regret
Keeping me down when I hit that floor
And I figured it out girl
Breaking's what your heart is for

Yeah breaking's what your heart is for
Yeah breaking's what your heart is for

And not a soul sleeps
Another heart skips a beat
It's every note that you wrote and I hope that you choke on the lines
You're wasting my time, another heart beats tonight

In a clear view there's a silhouette
And I watch you and I can't forget
Knew we were done when you locked that door
Yeah I figured it out now
Breaking's what the heart is for
When I see you in a silhouette
And you hold close
Do you feel regret
Keeping me down when I hit that floor
And I figured it out girl
Breaking's what your heart is for

Yeah breaking's what your heart is for [Repeat: x4]

    General CommentI think this song is simply about a guy who finds out his girlfriend has been cheating on him. He has clearly been hurt like this before, and reaches the conclusion that falling in love only leads to having your heart get broken. When he says "breakin's what your heart is for," he is not necessarily saying that he wishes that the girl gets her heart broken; instead, he is simply saying that he has figured out that love isn't really all that it's cracked up to be. It's a wonderful song to listen to when you feel like someone has broken your heart.

    General CommentI think the guy is just out of a bad relationship, and it broke his heart. Clearly he feels the girl didnt try enough or she was never fair in the relatiosn ship "take take everything that wasnt even yours". She just took and took and that just broke them apart. He feels he just wasted his time with her "all these wasted years". He has known for a long time that the relationship was going nowhere "so long i had to bit my tongue" but he gave up cause she left him. She maybe was unfaithful and lied "won't won't believe another word that you say" and after she took all and ended the relationship she kicked when he was down "keeping me down when i hit that floor". So the relationship ended in a fairly bitter way and he says "hope that you choke on the lines". He also is asking if she regrets leaving or wasting all those years but in the end he just concludes that "breakin's what the heart is for". That's just what i think anyways =P.

    General Commentwhat do you guys think the song means?
    this is easily the best song from the new record, the chorus is so catchy, but i somehow can't figure out the meaning.

    General CommentI think (I'm not sure though) that it's about a girl who's been messing around a guy and basically lying to him a lot.

    "Yeah, I've figured it out, girl
    Breakin's what your heart is for"
    - Her heart is made for breaking other people's, like she has done his.

    "With every note that you wrote
    And I hope that you choke
    On the lines
    You're wasting my time
    Another heart beats tonight"
    - You lied to me a lot and I hope you suffer for it, you're wasting your time if you're trying to get me back because I'm moving on.

    :)

    General Commentoh my GOd, I love this song. It's one of the best off the new AAR album. Luv it. I think it's about a guy who was with a girl, and she broke his heart. ANd now he comes to a conclusion, that "breaking is what the heart is for" as in, hearts are made to be broken. I'm a girl, so when I sing this song to myself, I exchange the "figured it out, girl" for "figured it out, boy". But the song defintely rules. Especialy if you're packing up your room full of stuff cos yur moving. I played this song and got pumped for packing my stuff (which, by the way, packing so you can move, is deadly boring. I fell asleep numerous times)

    General Comment"In a clear view
    There's a silhouette"

    this phrase, i figure out the meaning... silhouette is suppose to be unclear, usually when we see a silhouette we cant actually straight away figure wat is it... but it says, "in a clear view, there's a silhouette".... meaning their relationship is so obvious that this relationship is getting blurrr....

    anyone get what i mean? ^^ its ok if u dun, because i told many people about this but none of them get it... maybe u all get another way of thought about this phrase...
