Songblog: Break My Heart (I'll Let You)


"Break My Heart (I'll Let You)" written by Devin Gackle, July 2015

I like to think this song is about believing in love, no matter what. But it's more than that. It's about believing so much in a particular love, that what the person you love does doesn't matter- you love them anyway. You'll always forgive them for their mistakes. You'll never give up.

And you'll let them break your heart, over and over again, as many times as it takes. Because you'd rather they hurt you a thousand times over than you hurt them just once. You'd die for them. Even if they don't love you in return.

But that's love. Love isn't built on expectations, it's built on giving. On simply being.

Sometimes you have to wait; sometime someone might break your heart a few times before they accept it. But you'll always be there, always ready to give love. Maybe not waiting, but you'll be there.

Some people might think this is all crazy; but I think its's admirable. To love instead of be bitter. It takes more strength for that. It's easy to forget how important love is.

And sometimes love is letting someone hurt you so they can find out what love is for them.


Lyrics:


I'm alone, but I'm not afraid

'Cuz all I ever want is you

I wake up cold in this lonely place

Without you there the sunny days are few

Where are you now, come find me, I

I will always let you break my heart

Make me fall apart

Where there's love I know I'll never let it die

I will always let you hurt my pride

Make me lose my mind

Get inside the tears that burrow in the dark

I will always let you break my heart

Misery makes good company

I'm not sure if I could live another way

Fantasy gives me room to breathe

'Cuz reality's too hard for every day

What are we now, let's find out, I

I will always let you break my heart

Make me fall apart

Where there's love I know I'll never let it die

I will always let you hurt my pride

Make me lose my mind

Get inside the tears that burrow in the dark

I will always let you break my heart

I'm still here

You never know unless you try

I still believe

That we could do this right

I will always let you break my heart

Make me fall apart

Where there's love I know I'll never let it die

I will always let you hurt my pride

Make me lose my mind

Get inside the tears that burrow in the dark

I will always let you break my heart

I will always let you break my heart
