Song of the Day #2,396: ‘Life After a Broken Heart’ – Ron Sexsmith

forever_endeavourToday’s random iTunes selection is a nice ironic fit for Valentine’s Day.

An acoustic bonus track on Ron Sexsmith’s 2013 album Forever Endeavour, ‘Life After a Broken Heart’ is about getting over a break-up. It does hint at a new relationship — or maybe just the presence of a supportive friend — in its bridge and final verse.

I must also take this opportunity to wish a happy 9th birthday to my youngest daughter, Fiona. I’ve never cared much for Valentine’s Day as a holiday, but thanks to her February 14th is the anniversary of one of the greatest days of my life.

The world didn’t end like I thought it would
From out of something bad came something good
I know ‘cos I didn’t fall apart
But there is life after a broken heart

I can’t say her name like it’s just a name
Don’t have to keep her memory in a frame
I found that a brand new day would start
that there is life after a broken heart
there is life after a broken heart

After every earthquake
there are aftershocks
it takes time to settle down
But thanks to you I found
I’m back on solid ground

You came and you changed things over night
From out of something dark came something bright
And here at last is the greatest part
That there is life after a broken heart
There is life after a broken heart
