"Almost Forgot My Broken Heart" as written by and Chris Cornell....
Every time I stare into the sun
Trying to find a reason to go on
All I ever get is burned and blind
Until the sky bleeds the pouring rain

When you came along the time was right
Pulled me like an apple red and ripe
Wasn't very long you took a bite
And did me wrong, and it serves me right

And I nearly forgot my broken heart
It's taking me miles away,
From the memory of how we broke apart
Here we go round again, again

Every little key unlocks the door
Every little secret has a lie
Tryna take a picture of the sun
And it won't help you to see the light

Every little word upon your lips
Makes a little cut where blood pours out
Every little drop of blood a kiss that I won't miss
Not for anything

And I nearly forgot my broken heart
It's taking me miles away,
From the memory of how we broke apart
Here we go round again
Every single feeling tells me this is leading to a heart
In broken little pieces and you know I need this
Like a hole in the head

Every single feeling tells me this is leading to a heart
In broken little pieces and you know I need this
Like a hole in the head

And I nearly forgot my broken heart
It's taking me miles away,
From the memory of how we broke apart
Here we go round again

And I nearly forgot my broken heart
It's taking me miles away,
From the memory of how we broke apart
Here we go round again

Here we go round again
Here we go round again
Here we go round again

    My InterpretationIt's about how when a relationship ends and for a while, you try to move on from it and for a while, you succeed. Then, out of the blue, you see or hear something that reminds you of the ex-lover (i.e., a song from a musician/band they like is playing on the radio, or you read the newspaper and find them or a relative of theirs on the page you're reading. Then, everything goes back to them, and you remember everything that happened in the relationship when you and they were together. I thought I was over my ex-boyfriend until I heard songs from Aerosmith and Jason Aldean on the radio, and I also saw obituaries of his dead relatives in the newspaper, and I thought he would flip out when the reporter put his birth name on the survivor list because he hated it when I called him that. I now have those obituaries and an article about his grandmother stashed somewhere in my house.

    Song MeaningI think its about remembering how tough it is to give your heart to someone, then ultimately break up. Then when you meet someone else, you are a little bitter and more careful about falling in love.

    OR

    he is getting back with the same woman that broke his heart the first time around.

    General CommentThe lyric video for this is pretty awesome. It's nice to see some artistry put into the effort, something that expands the imaginative possibilities rather than limits them.
