‘Unbreak My Heart’ by Toni Braxton holds many memories for me.

First of all, it’s from the nineties, and I’ve lately had a revival listening to music from this era for nostalgia reasons.
Secondly, my father loved this artist a lot. We even had the CD this song was on, and that was special for us. We didn’t own that many CDs since they were pretty expensive at that time.
And thirdly, I love the video clip and especially the male model starring in it. He is so handsome to look at.

And, of course, it’s a break-up song too, so it matches this week’s prompt perfectly.

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

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

Take back that sad word goodbye
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

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, oh, ooh
Ooh

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

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, many nights
Oh, un-break my
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
(Say that you love me, say that you love me)
(Tell me you love me, un-break my)
(Say that you love me, say that you love me)
(Tell me you love me, un-break my)
