What We Learn From BSB Songs – Don’t Go Breaking My Heart

It’s that time again! Where I get bored and decide to dive in far too deep into BSB lyrics to see what lessons I can get from them. This time? Well lord knows I’ve had this song on repeat on Spotify so much, may as well look into it! (FYI streaming is the way to go these days if you want to help them on the charts as they count along with radio.) So I’ll link the video here, you guys click the Closed Captions for the lyrics so you can play along with me!

I got mixed emotions
Did I finally find me a river that could lead me out to the ocean?
‘Cause I’ve only ever known the kind of love
That leaves you battered and broken
So forgive me for my mixed emotions, yeah yeah

 

1. Okay, mixed emotions about what?

2. Wait how did we jump from feelings to geography? I’m officially confused already.

3. Oh Nick…I’m sorry. I forgive you. Thanks for clarifying why you’ve got mixed emotions.

4. Wait, a song where they’re explaining themselves? Sweet! No I Want It That Way migraines!

 

I’m not that kind of person
Who can fall in and out of love with you
That’s not what love’s supposed to do
I’m not that kind of person
Who can fall in and out of love with you
That’s not what love’s supposed to do

 

5. I think I speak for everyone when I say falling in love, and STAYING in love with us is just fine. Really.

6. Well, I mean I think it depends on what kind of love?

 

Baby, don’t go breaking my heart, breaking my heart
Baby, don’t go breaking my heart, breaking my heart
‘Cause it’s the only one I got
‘Cause it’s the only one I got

 

7. You know, it’s fair to ask this. Without your heart you’d die. And I don’t want to be responsible for dead Backstreet Boys.

8. Trust me, you’re safe. I have a will to live.

 

Am I being too open?
Cause I told you everything I have to say
And now we’re having a moment
Does it make you wanna pack up all your things and drive away like you stole it?
Just forgive me if I’m being too open
No no no no, yeah yeah yeah

 

9. No, you can NEVER be too open. In fact, never change AJ.

10. No? What kind of reaction is that? Do you think I’ve stolen things before?

11. Wait, have YOU stolen things before?

12. I think we need to talk AJ.

13. You don’t have to apologize for being too open. Really. We like that kind of thing!

14. Still have questions about you stealing things though so…we might want to talk…

 

I’m not that kind of person
Who can fall in and out of love with you
That’s not what love’s supposed to do
(what love’s supposed to do)
I’m not that kind of person
Who can fall in and out of love with you
That’s not what love’s supposed to do

 

15. I think we might have to talk about the types of love too. Not all of them are healthy. And yeah bad types of love can come back, fade away, warp…I blame the psychology lover in me for this line of thought.

 

Baby, don’t go breaking my heart, breaking my heart
Baby, don’t go breaking my heart, breaking my heart
‘Cause it’s the only one I got
‘Cause it’s the only one I got
Baby, don’t go breaking my heart, breaking my heart
Baby, don’t go breaking my heart, breaking my heart
‘Cause it’s the only one I got
‘Cause it’s the only one I got

 

16. Even if I wanted to ruin your heart, I wouldn’t want to risk being hurt by the fandom for hurting you.

 

I’ve been broken, I’ve been bruised
But now I’m all in ’cause of you
So if you’re gonna love me, love me right, yeah
But if you’re gonna be someone that hurts somebody just for fun
Then do it to a heart that isn’t mine

 

17. Do I need to go find whoever DID hurt you in the past?

18. Awww. Nick, all these Boys really, are so smooth.

19. This lyric about hurting someone for fun (or playing games) makes me think of Quit Playing Games. They don’t like people playing with them, hurting them just for fun! They told us this before. We learned it –HOLY SHIT– Twenty One Years Ago.

20. I need a moment. Number 19 really screwed with my head and now I’m off to browse Amazon for a walker or a cane.

 

Baby, don’t go breaking my heart, breaking my heart
Baby, don’t go breaking my heart, breaking my heart
‘Cause it’s the only one I got
‘Cause it’s the only one I got
Baby, don’t go breaking my heart, breaking my heart
Baby, don’t go breaking my heart, breaking my heart
‘Cause it’s the only one I got
It’s the only one, it’s the only one I got
‘Cause it’s the only one I got

 

21. Seriously! Don’t go breaking their hearts! (I couldn’t if I tried… I really couldn’t help myself here.)

Baby don’t go…

 

22. I’ll stay! I’ll stay forever!

 

Overall Lesson: Nick might need a GPS system though I’m not sure since he never mentioned rivers or oceans again. Also, these Boys are really sick of people messing with their hearts. Since it’s been happening for twenty years now. But ya know, they still have the best dance moves so…all is well!
