"Breaking Hearts" as written by and James Mcmorrow....
You can stop your crying, I'm never coming back
You can stop your crying, just walk down the tracks again
I just can't take the pressure, it's all too much for me
I just can't take the pressure, please just let me be

See I've been, breaking hearts, for far too long
Loving you, for far too long,
Making plans now, for far too long
Yes I've been breaking hearts, for far too long
Loving you, for far too long,
It's time I leave, it's time I'm moving on.

I'm gonna find a city, call the streets my own
I'm gonna find a city, drink until it's gone
The girls there, look so pretty, treat me oh so well
The girls there look so pretty, they're all just empty shells to me

See I've been, breaking hearts, for far too long
Loving you, for far too long,
Making plans now, for far too long
Yes I've been breaking hearts, for far too long
Loving you, for far too long,
It's time I leave, it's time I'm moving on.

When I need the shelter, I'll know just who to call
When I need the shelter, knocking on your door
But when it comes to dying, I'll do it on my own
I've never been too clever, I've always just hung on.

See I've been, breaking hearts, for far too long
Loving you, for far too long,
Making plans now, for far too long
Yes I've been breaking hearts, for far too long
Loving you, for far too long,
It's time I leave, it's time I'm moving on.

    General CommentI love this song, besides the fact that I don't really get where is meaning goes to. I guess that's about a breaking up, he's tired of a too much crazy relationship, that just make him get hurt.

    General CommentThis song is about a persons internal struggles with a relationship that they are no longer committed to. The person is thinking and has been thinking of leaving the relationship. They are trying to becoming brave by fantasizing about how they are going to do it and its potential outcome. Still comfort of the relationship is drawing the individual back to its safety. This was once a loving relationship has meaning to the individual. So in the event the person stays or leaves, hearts will be broken.

    General CommentI think this song is about a break-up that the person didn't want. He still loves her but he's unable to cope with that when she is the one who broke up with him. So he decides to pretend like he broke up with her and he is done with her to spare his own feelings when in reality he wants nothing more than to get her back.
