The Script – Breakeven

Published March 23, 2010 - 0 Comments

 This is one of those songs that was somehow released in 2008, yet seems to have gone unnoticed, at least in these parts, until recently.  I heard it on the radio a few days ago, and thought that it was a brand new release… but I was wrong.  I’m not sure when it started to get local airplay, but I’ve heard it a few times now.  And I quickly added it to my “must have” list, and have pretty much played it to death since. 

When I went to purchase the video through iTunes, there were actually two of them.  That’s where I noticed that one had a 2008 release.  Even the other one said 2009, so it’s not like it’s brand new. 

The group is from Ireland.  I like groups from Ireland.  Reminds me… gonna have a blast watching U2 this summer…

I’m pretty sure that these lyrics were ripped word-for-word from my journal.  Where are my royalties?

*sigh*

I’m still alive but I’m barely breathing
Just prayed to a god that I don’t believe in
Cause I got time while she got freedom
Cause when a heart breaks no it don’t break even

Her best days will be some of my worst
She finally met a man that’s gonna put her first
While I’m wide awake she’s no trouble sleeping
Cause when a heart breaks no it don’t break even, even no

What am I suppose to do when the best part of me was always you?
What am I suppose to say when I’m all choked up and you’re ok?
I’m falling to pieces, yeah
I’m falling to pieces

They say bad things happen for a reason
But no wise words gonna stop the bleeding
Cause she’s moved on while I’m still grieving
And when a heart breaks, no it don’t break even, even, no

What am I suppose to do when the best part of me was always you?
What am I suppose to say when I’m all choked up and you’re ok”
I’m falling to pieces, yeah, I’m falling to pieces, yeah
I’m falling to pieces, I’m falling to pieces

You got his heart and my heart and none of the pain
You took your suitcase, I took the blame.
Now I’m tryna make sense of what little remains
Cause you left with no love, with no love to my name.

I’m still alive but I’m barely breathing
Just prayed to a god that I don’t believe in
Cause I got time while she got freedom
Cause when a heart breaks, no it don’t break even
No it don’t break, no it don’t break even, no

What am I gonna do when the best part of me was always you?
What am I suppose to say when I’m all choked up and you’re ok?
I’m falling to pieces, yeah, I’m falling to pieces, yeah
I’m falling to pieces, I’m falling to pieces

Oh, it don’t break even, no
Oh, it don’t break even, no
Oh, it don’t break even, no
