Un-Break My Heart


Diane Warren
Toni Braxton
Arista 1996

Un-cry these tears 
I cried so many nights 
Un-break my heart 
My heart 

Writer Warren thought that the title Un-Break My Heart was a winner. So do I! And so it was, for 11 weeks, on the Pop charts.

The use of the prefix Un-, which normally implies a reversal of action, is ironic in this case because tears, once cried, cannot be undone.
