I'm still alive but I'm barely breathing
Just prayin' to a god that I don't believe in
Cos I got time while she got freedom
Cos 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
Cos when a heart breaks no it don't breakeven... even... no

What am I supposed to do when the best part of me was always you,
And what am I supposed to say when I'm all choked up that 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
Cos she's moved on while I'm still grieving

And when a heart breaks no it don't breakeven even... no

What am I gonna to do when the best part of me was always you,
And what am I supposed to say when I'm all choked up that you're ok
I'm falling to pieces, yeah,
I'm falling to pieces, yeah,
I'm falling to pieces
(One still in love while the other ones leaving)
I'm falling to pieces
(Cos when a heart breaks no it don't breakeven)

Oh you got his heart and my heart and none of the pain
You took your suitcase, I took the blame.
Now I'm try'na make sense of what little remains ooh
Cos you left me with no love and no love to my name.

I'm still alive but I'm barely breathing
Just prayin' to a god that I don't believe in
Cos I got time while she got freedom
Cos when a heart breaks no it don't break
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 and
What am I supposed to say when I'm all choked up that you're ok
(Oh glad you're okay now)
I'm falling to pieces yeah
(Oh I'm glad you're okay)
I'm falling to pieces yeah
(One still in love while the other ones leaving)
I'm falling to pieces
(Cos when a heart breaks no it don't breakeven)

Oh it don't break even no
Oh it don't break even no
Oh it don't break even no

    What more is there to say? How can you breathe while they're having the time of their life? How can you exist while their new love is living as well? Everything is falling apart, and you just about lose all faith in anything and everything. You look at the door. Are they there? Then you realize the shocking truth. When your heart is torn apart they take a piece with them. You're never whole again.

    I love how this song exactly describes my feelings. I was with this girl for 4 years, I love her so much(and still do), and she was so happy with me too. One and a half month ago a childhood friend of mine confessed to her that he likes her, and suddenly she told me that she has no feelings for me anymore. She said all these 4 years it was real love, but now that is all gone. I still couldn't believe what happened. And I still love her. I see her in my dreams everyday. I just hope one day we will be together again.

    I love this song :) just completely gets my situation, My ex of 3 years who I have a child with broke up with me 2 months back for a bit of freedom and a couple of nights out, She claims she got over me instantly and dosen't love me anymore, No amount of tears and desperation could bring her back, I wanted to settle she wanted to roam, I stay she leaves, When we break we don't break even, I'm in this ship wreck alone forever waiting to be rescued.

    I had a secret crush on a girl who just started seriously with someone else and she suddenly appeared and wanted to talk like we used to do. I couldn't talk. I just froze as in 'all choked up that you're ok'. I must have blushed also and she could see I was 'falling to pieces'. Definitely my most embarrasing moment since now my secret was known. I avoided her until I could leave the area and I never saw her again. That was over 15 years ago but it still hurts like yesterday.

    "Break even" is truly my life wrapped up in one song. Relationships are rarely at a balance so 1 prsn will undoubtedly have the upper hand in the end it all just depends on who can be more cold hearted than the other. The irony of it all is that we teach our lover(s) how 2 hurt us, so who do you blame? You can also choose to close yourself in but then you won't experience happiness at its fullest potential. This song is definitely a classic 4 the ages, and it helps hopeless romantics like me know that I'm not the only 1 going thru stuff like this, which could possibly and hopefully speeds the healing process. Big thanx 2 "The Script"
