I Heartbreak Music XD

March 1, 2011

If words alone can make and break people, words with the right tune have the power to complete and to destroy us. Though many use words to impress, to deceive, to make a fuss, it can also express love, reassurance, and sincerity. Words can alter feelings, and through feelings can we relate with each other.

Feelings such as joy, sadness, ecstasy, and even being in love can be expressed in song. When one sings a song, the tune is telling the world, “I know how you feel,” “There there,” “It’s exactly as I think it is!”  Such tunes and words calm anxious hearts, strengthen faiths, give embraces, wipe tears, comfort the depressed, give people courage, lift morales, and best of all, a way to praise our God. It is telling those who can hear, “I understand you! You are not alone!”

“The worst thing in the world is being alone.”  Though music does not feed you, it has enough to make you forget about it. Even if you’re by yourself, you know someone out there has listened to the same music as you, and that someone out there, is going through what you’re going through. “Be strong!” it tells you, “You can do it!”

In that aspect, all types of music I greatly respect. It is untrue when we say that “Today’s music is nothing but garbage!” when in reality, like 50 years ago, bad music will just be forgotten, and those that actually meant anything will live on. Time will be our filter.

I would like to share with you a song I’ve grown fond of. Years back, the lyrics had been powerful, and they grasped the feeling of being on the losing end of breaking up, of having to hide everything from everyone; telling everyone you’re okay, but drown in tears when alone. If songs can elate you, it can also be a medium for heartbreak.

Friends, Breakdown by Mariah Carey.

PPS:  I especially like Mariah’s 2nd stanza. XD

Break Down
By: Mariah Carey Feat Bone Thugs N Harmony

Break, break down, steady breakin’ me on down
Break, break down, steady breakin’ me on down
Break, break down, steady breakin’ me on down
Break, break down, steady breakin’ me on down

You called yesterday to basically say
That you care for me but that you’re just not in love
Immediately I pretended to be feeling similarly
And led you to believe I was O.K.
To just walk away from the one thing
That’s unyielding and sacred to me

[Chorus:]
Well I guess I’m trying to be nonchalant about it
And I’m going to extremes to prove I’m fine without you
But in reality I’m slowly losing my my mind
Underneath the guise of a smile gradually I’m dying inside
Friends ask me how I feel and I lie convincingly
‘Cause I don’t want to reveal the fact that I’m suffering
So I wear my disguise ’til I go home at night
And turn down all the lights and then break down and cry

So what do you do when somebody you’re so devoted to
Suddenly just stops loving you and it seems they haven’t got a clue
Of the pain that rejection is putting you through
Do you cling to your pride and sing “I will survive”
Do you lash out and say “How dare you leave this way”
Do you hold on in vain as they just slip away
[Chorus]

Yeah, c’mon
Yeah, c’mon, c’mon
Break break down
Gotta get control
Roll roll roll along
Steady breakin’ me on down
Roll roll roll along
Break break down
Gotta get control
Roll roll roll along
Steady breakin’ me on down
Roll roll along

It’ll break you down
Only if you let it
Everyday crucial situation wrackin’ my mind
Tryin’ to break me down
But I won’t let it
Forget it
Forget it

I’ve been feelin’ like you’re breakin’ me down
Kickin’ me around
Stressin’ me out
I think I better go and get out and let me
Release some stress (stress)

Don’t ever wanna feel no pain (pain)
Hoping for the sun
But it looks like rain (rain, rain, rain)
Oh, i just wanna maintain

Yeah, when you feel the pressure’s on
But nevertheless
Krayzie won’t fall
It’s over
It’s endin’ here, here
[Chorus]
