Music Meme (Day 30) - My Favorite Song At This Time Last Year

With my poor memory I had to go look at a top 40 chart for February 2010.  Going down the list I bypassed several songs I've already chosen for this challenge or like enough to have in my music library.  The first song that I went "Aha!" over was listed as Number 21.  It is from a self-titled album by an Irish pop/rock band.  The song has a lovely melody, smooth vocals, meaningful lyrics, and always grabs my attention when it's playing. 

Here is the official music video of Breakeven by The Script. 





Breakeven (lyrics)
Songwriters: Andrew Frampton/Daniel O'Donoghue/Mark Sheehan/Steve Hussy/Steve Kipner

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 breakeven

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 breakeven, even, no

What am I suppose to do
When the best part of me was always you and
What am I suppose to say
When I'm all choked up and you're okay

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 breakeven, even, no

What am I gonna do
When the best part of me was always you
And what am I suppose to say
When I'm all choked up and you're okay

I'm falling to pieces, yeah
I'm falling to pieces, yeah
I'm falling to pieces
(One's still in love while the other one's leaving)
I'm falling to pieces
('Cause when a heart breaks, no it don't breakeven)

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, oh
'Cause you left me with no love and 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
No it don't break, no it don't breakeven, 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 and you're okay

I'm falling to pieces, yeah
I'm falling to pieces, yeah
I'm falling to pieces
(One's still in love while the other one's leaving)
I'm falling to pieces
('Cause when a heart breaks, no it don't breakeven)

Oh, it don't breakeven, no
Oh, it don't breakeven, no
Oh, it don't breakeven, no




And, I'm done with the 30-day meme...whew!  I hope I was able to introduce someone to music they enjoy and might not have found on their own.  That will have made this challenge worth it!
