I have always loved songs by Alicia Keys but I’m not a hard core fan.  She’s been here in Manila twice and unfortunately timing hasn’t always been on my side.  Her initial single “Doesn’t Mean Anything” from recently released album “The Element of Freedom” was such a big hit for me, not only because I think it’s a truthful and heart breaking song but because I share with the sentiments of the song.

And now her latest single is “Try Sleeping with A Broken Heart”, a song which says how one is trying to make it without that someone special.  How one is longing for that certain someone.

I don’t know what’s wrong with Alicia why her songs have this message.  I’m just thinking maybe she’s like me.  It doesn’t necessarily mean that she’s sad and heart broken.

There are times or should I say more often, I find myself writing sad stuffs by just channeling through a certain topic that I’ve watched or heard or read but that doesn’t mean that’s what I am feeling that time or state that I am in.

I’m just a little dramatic.  Well, I honestly think a healthy dose of drama isn’t bad once in awhile.

Anyway, I’m sharing the link of the song and the lyrics as well.  Hope you like it too.

Try Sleeping With a Broken Heart

Even if you were a million miles away

I could still feel you in my bed

Near me, touch me, feel me

And even at the bottom of the sea

I could still hear inside my head

Tellin’ me, touch me, feel me

And all the time you were tellin’ me lies

So tonight, I’m gonna find a way to make it without you

Tonight I’m gonna find a way to make it without you

I’m gonna hold on to the times we had tonight

I’m gonna find a way to make it without you

Have you ever tried sleeping with a broken heart?

Well, you could try sleeping in my bed

Lonely, own me nobody ever shut it down like you

You wore the crown

You made my body feel heaven bound

Why don’t you hold me

Near me, I thought you told me

You’d never leave me

Looking in the sky I could see your face

And I know right where I fit in

Take me, make me, you know that I’ll always be in love

With you

Right til the end OOh

So tonight, I’m gonna find a way to make it without you

Tonight I’m gonna find a way to make it without you

I’m gonna hold on to the times we had tonight

I’m gonna find a way to make it without you

Anybody could’ve told you right from the start

It’s about to fall apart

So rather than hold on to a broken dream

Or just hold on to love

And I could find a way to make it

Don’t hold on too tight

I’ll make it without you tonight

So tonight, I’m gonna find a way to make it without you

Tonight I’m gonna find a way to make it without you

I’m gonna hold on to the times we had tonight

I’m gonna find a way to make it without you
