Lyrics Interpretation - Toni Braxton Un-Break My Heart.

Assalamualaikum WBT,

Happy Sunday *still. hahaha. For this entry I would love to write it in English, hehehe, why? Because I am writing about Lyrics Interpretation. hehehe.. For this entry, I want to interpret Toni Braxton's song, Un-Break My Heart. We know about that song, right?

We all know that this is a very big ballad song right? Looking at the lyrics, we already know about how sad the song is and plus, the haunting melody. Its so sad. Yes.


Un-Break My Heart - Toni Braxton

Don't leave me in all this pain
Don't leave me out in the rain
Come back and bring back my smile
Come and take these tears away
I need your arms to hold me now
The nights are so unkind
Bring back those nights when I held you beside me

In this stanza, Diane Warren *the writer,  straight away wrote about the pain and the nights that character had through without his true love, who had died in an incident, *with reference of this song music video. The character said to her love and begged the God to bring back her love life. She mentioned about how she suffered without her love life. Awful.

Un-break my heart
Say you'll love me again
Undo this hurt you caused
When you walked out the door
And walked out of my life
Un-cry these tears
I cried so many nights
Un-break my heart
My heart

In  second stanza, she asked someone to actually un-break her heart and to be loved one more time. With that love, she would find the happiness one more time. With that love, she would easily un-cry her tears, why? because the happiness has filled in her heart, one more time. But with only one reference, which is the Music Video, we have the knowledge that her love life has died and we all know what, once life is dead, nothing could bring that life back, right?

Take back that sad word good-bye
Bring back the joy to my life
Don't leave me here with these tears
Come and kiss this pain away
I can't forget the day you left
Time is so unkind
And life is so cruel without you here beside me

Reading this stanza make me want to deny the fact that her love life is dead, the music video should not make her love life dead, it should be like, her love life run with some other woman or man, who knows right? LOL. But in this stanza, she wants the joy and happiness back to her life and she wants the same man back to her and kiss her. Why? Because her life is cruel without him by her side. Why? Because woman needs man. Nuff said.

Don't leave me in all this pain
Don't leave me out in the rain
Bring back the nights when I held you beside me

In this stanza, once again, she asked her love life to consider her beggings, suffers, blistering heart and come back to her and why? She needs her man back. She wants to sleep with him again.

Un-break my heart oh baby
Come back and say you love me
Un-break my heart
Sweet darlin'
Without you I just can't go on
Can't go on....

Once again, in this last stanza, she mentioned that her love life needs to come back to her and love her one more time. Why? Because she trusted him and she believed that without him, she is nothing. She cannot live her live without him and she just needs to be with him, her love life. 

Well, well, well, this is, to be honest, a very tough song to interpret. Why? Because, the lyrics and the music video walked into different directions. The music video shows that her love life is dead and the the lyrics, her love life, somewhat, cheated her to be with some other woman or man, or whatever. I don't know. But, whatever it is, this song has very haunting melody, big ballads. Love it, plus, Toni's vocal made it very sad.

That is all I guessed.

Assalamualaikum WBT,

p/s: I wish I could sing that song. hahaha. *dreaming
