"A Perfectly Good Heart" as written by Troy Verges, Brett James and Taylor Swift....
Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart
Why would you wanna take our love and tear it all apart now
Why would you wanna make the very first scar
Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart

Maybe I should've seen the signs, should've read the writing on the wall
And realized by the distance in your eyes that I would be the one to fall
No matter what you say I still can't believe
That you would walk away
It don't make sense to me but


It's not unbroken anymore
How do I get it back the way it was before

Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart
Why would you wanna take our love and tear it all apart now
Why would you wanna make the very first scar
Why would you wanna break, would you wanna break a

    Song MeaningThis song is about someone who broke her heart; she is asking the question to him, why did you want to break it? because she doesn't understand why. she never wanted him to break her heart; however 'it's not unbroken anymore' means that she has tried to fix it.

    General CommentI think this song is about the first time your heart really gets broken... not just a summer fling thing, but the first time you were really falling for a guy and then he broke your heart.
    This is a really awesome song but its kinda sad:(

    General CommentThis song is my life right now.
    I was in a relationship with a guy for one year, 2 months, and 10 days, but I broke up with him for a lot of reasons, but we got out of it pretty easy but then I met a boy.

    This guy asked me out the next day, and we went out for two days. Even though it wasn't very long, oh wow I love him. This was my first time getting hurt, and I wasn't used to it. I was being all depressed && stuff last night, && I came across this song. I fell in love with it instantly, cause it describes exactly what I'm going through...
    Thank you.
