Song of the Day #3,961: ‘Nothing Breaks Like a Heart’ – Mark Ronson feat. Miley Cyrus

British DJ/producer Mark Ronson has a new album due later this year, including contributions from Lykke Li, Camila Cabello, Alicia Keys and others.

Ronson’s last album, 2015’s Uptown Special, featured ‘Uptown Funk,’ the brilliant collaboration with Bruno Mars that dominated charts and is destined to be a dance floor staple for decades to come.

The new album, Late Night Feelings, likely won’t feature a chart-topper like that. Ronson says it is made up of “sad bangers” that are more emotional than danceable. He also says it’s the best things he’s ever done.

If first single ‘Nothing Breaks Like a Heart,’ co-written by and featuring Miley Cyrus, is any indication, he may be on to something. This is a great country-pop tune that fits Cyrus’ vocals just perfectly.

[Chorus: Miley Cyrus]
This world can hurt you
It cuts you deep and leaves a scar
Things fall apart, but nothing breaks like a heart
And nothing breaks like a heart

[Verse 1: Miley Cyrus]
I heard you on the phone last night
We live and die by pretty lies
You know it, oh, we both know it
These silver bullet cigarettes
This burning house, there’s nothing left
It’s smoking, we both know it
We got all night to fall in love
But just like that we fall apart
We’re broken, we’re broken

[Pre-Chorus: Miley Cyrus]
Mmm, well nothing, nothing, nothing gon’ save us now

[Chorus: Miley Cyrus]
Well, there’s broken silence
By thunder crashing in the dark (Crash in the dark)
And this broken record
Spin endless circles in the bar (Spin ’round in the bar)
This world can hurt you
It cuts you deep and leaves a scar
Things fall apart, but nothing breaks like a heart
Mhmm, and nothing breaks like a heart

[Verse 2: Miley Cyrus]
We’ll leave each other cold as ice
And high and dry, the desert wind
Is blowin’, is blowin’
Remember what you said to me?
We were drunk in love in Tennessee
And I hold it, we both know it

[Pre-Chorus: Miley Cyrus]
Mmm, nothing, nothing, nothing gon’ save us now
Nothing, nothing, nothing gon’ save us now

[Chorus: Miley Cyrus]
Well, there’s broken silence
By thunder crashing in the dark (Crash in the dark)
And this broken record
Spin endless circles in the bar (Spin ’round in the bar)
This world can hurt you
It cuts you deep and leaves a scar
Things fall apart, but nothing breaks like a heart
Mhmm, and nothing breaks like a heart
Nothing breaks like a heart
Mhmm, and nothing breaks like a heart

[Bridge: Miley Cyrus]
My heart, my heart
Nothing, nothing, nothing gon’ save us now
My heart, my heart
Nothing, nothing, nothing gon’ save us now

[Chorus: Miley Cyrus]
Well, there’s broken silence
By thunder crashing in the dark (Crash in the dark)
And this broken record
Spin endless circles in the bar (Spin ’round in the bar)
This world can hurt you
It cuts you deep and leaves a scar
Things fall apart, but nothing breaks like a heart
Mhmm, but nothing breaks like a heart
But nothing breaks like a heart
Mhmm, but nothing breaks like a heart
