"My Broken Heart" as written by and Charles Fink....
You can give up anything when you're following your heart
I never had the time to show I could depart
with my whole being, go back to the start
Oh I promised more in vows then I ever give with my heart
but I'll be lonely
Oh I'll be lonely
Oh I'll be lonely
oh again

Broken hearts are a fickle thing and complicated too
I thought I believed in love but I've never seen it through
Oh I didn't marry the girl I loved
I saw my world cave in, felt like giving up
but I'll be laughing
Oh I'll be laughing
Oh I'll be laughing
oh again

I've been looking for hope these days
but loves not finding me
but now my hearts been broken there is nothing you can do
I'm impenetrable to pain
Oh, you can break my broken heart
Oh no, you can break my broken heart

    General CommentI love this album. The songs (especially this one) are all heartbreakingly beautiful.

    This one is pretty easy, I think it's about a guy who saw love pass him by and didn't grab it. Now he's so badly heartbroken that he doesn't think it could get any worse.

    As with most Noah and the Whale lyrics, it's simple but really well put. The violin part is really fantastic too.

    General Commentsuch a beautiful song, the whole album is beautiful, and one thing i love is how simple these songs are, like they are intricate and all but the whole message isnt all look at me im sad, its simple, and somewhat haunting, and beautiful, and heartbreaking. and SO emotional. but i love how its stating ill be lonely again, like he knows this feeling is part of life. but it also goes to say ill be laughing again, so that its hopeful aswell, and realistic about everything. the hopeful part makes it all the more heartbreaking, its just so sweet.
