"Baby, Don't You Break My Heart Slow" as written by Vonda Shepard and James Newton Howard....
I like the way you wanted me
Every night for so long baby
I like the way you needed me
Every time things got rocky

I was believing in you
Am I mistaken do you say,
Do you say what you mean
I want our love to last forever

But I'd rather you be mean than love and lie
I'd rather hear the truth and have to say goodbye
I'd rather take a blow at least then I would know
But baby don't you break my heart slow

I like the way you'd hold me
Every night for so long baby
And I like the way you'd say my name
In the middle of the night
While you were sleeping

I was believing in you
Was I mistaken
Do you mean, mean what you say
When you say our love could last forever

Well I'd rather you be mean than love and lie
I'd rather hear the truth and have to say goodbye
I'd rather take a blow at least then I would know
But baby don't you break my heart slow

You would run around and lead me on forever
While I wait at home thinking that we're together
I wanted our love to last forever

Well I'd rather you be mean than love and lie
I'd rather hear the truth and have to say goodbye
I'd rather take a blow at least then I would know
But baby don't you break my heart slow

    General CommentI watched a video clip with this song so it pretty much has influenced me in the meaning of the song. Like this couple were happy together but one of them had to go off and have an affair with someone else behind the other person's back. She finds out and all hell breaks loose (not really). To me it's a very very sad song. But I don't really understand why she doesn't want the ex-lover to "break her heart slow". Why slow and not fast maybe?
