"Give Your Heart a Break" as written by and William E Steinberg Joshua Alexander Berman....
The day I first met you
You told me you never fall in love
But now that I get you
I know fear is what it really was

Now here we are so close yet so far
How did I pass the test?
When will you realize
Baby I'm not like the rest

Don't wanna break your heart
Wanna give your heart a break
I know your scared it's wrong
Like you might make a mistake
There's just one life to live
And there's no time to wait to waste
So let me give your heart a break
Give your heart a break
Let me give your heart a break
Your heart a break

Oh yeah yeah

A Sunday you went home alone
There were tears in your eyes
I called your cell phone, my love
But you did not reply

The world is ours if you want it
We can take it, if you just take my hand
There's no turning back now
Baby try to understand

Don't wanna break your heart
Wanna give your heart a break
I know you're scared it's wrong
Like you might make a mistake
There's just one life to live
And there's no time to wait to waste
So let me give your heart a break
Give your heart a break
Let me give your heart a break
Your heart a break
There's just so much you can take
Give your heart a break
Let me give your heart a break
Your heart a break

Oh yeah yeah

When your lips are on my lips
And our hearts beat as one
But you slip out of my fingertips
Every time you run

Don't wanna break your heart
Wanna give your heart a break
I know your scared it's wrong
Like you might make a mistake
There's just one life to live
And there's no time to wait to waste
So let me give your heart a break
'Cause you been hurt before
I can see it in your eyes
You try to smile it away
Some things you can't disguise
Don't wanna break your heart
Baby I can erase the ache, the ache
So let me give your heart a break
Give your heart a break
Let me give your heart a break
Your heart a break
There's just so much you can take
Give your heart a break
Let me give your heart a break
Your heart a break

The day I first met you
You told me you never fall in love

    My InterpretationWe often associate falling in love with getting hurt, and we instinctively run to the opposite direction when somebody assures us that they are "not like the rest". But this song is saying, "Hey, allow me to love you, let me give your heart a break." Maybe love isn't always about getting hurt, it can also be about healing. We often think that the pain/suffering/fear we are experiencing are results of allowing ourselves to love and be loved, but we forget that the beauty of love is it overcomes all these.

    General CommentI cant believed no one commented yet. This song is very self explanatory, he told her that he wasn't the one to fall in love with anybody. and that's probably because of past relationships, and or experiences. But she proved him wrong, and he fell in love with her.

    General CommentIt's about her liking a guy or whatever and he's very unsure about anything right now because relationships and how he was hurt by ex's but he wants a chance to prove to him that she is not like the rest.

    My InterpretationMy take on this song is that there will always be someone out there, even if that person is the person that you would least expect, that would be your best soul mate, and who will be there for you whenever you need it.
    When the song first begins by saying, "The day I first met you, You told me you never fall in love, But now that I get you, I know fear is what it really was" That was probably because you just met the person, and don't really think that that person is right for you, for you don’t know much about the person, and on top of that, you’re scared for many reasons.

    More to come on the rest of the song soon...

    General CommentObviously this song is about a girl who loves this guy but the guy is scared because he has been hurt before, so the girl wants give his heart a break.

    My InterpretationMy interpretation is very wrong but its what it means to me. I think that its about her failing for one of her best friends that is a girl. I think that especially when she says that she is scared thats wrong. And this girl she likes has had bad luck with guys and she wants her to know that it isn't wrong and she loves her and wants to be with her and that she won't hurt her.

    My InterpretationThis song speaks of a phenomenon that I have observed over and over again. We have someone who is in love with someone else, but the other person wants to bolt and run out of fear-- a fear of intimacy. Rather than to open themself up and become vulnerable, they just prefer to take the easy route and hide. They become an emotional coward. But the other person is offering their love and offering their hand. They want to be their lover and to be their friend, but the only problem is that the other won't allow them to give their heart a break.

    General CommentI absolutely love this song. It is one of my favourites atm. The song is very straight forward to be honest. But you could take it in others way for example...it reminds me of a girl who has met this guy who has been hurt in previous relationship and doesnt think he can trust a girl again, and as a friend she is saying you can trust me and i want you to give urself a break from all this heartache so let me be the one to make things right. (Even though the song is clearly about love and not friendship).
