I’ve been hearing the remake of Walker Chris’ How Do You Heal A Broken Heart for two weeks now. It is a duet, I dunno who sang it. I don’t really like it. Walker Chris’ version went out around 1994, if I’m not mistaken. Those were the days when I believe that crushes are true loves and that I can get pregnant by just sleeping with someone (and well, hugging him tight). And that the supposed “gestation period” is only a couple of hours. I used to have this fantasy that after sleeping together, I would wake up the next morning and surprise my “husband” over breakfast in bed that he’s going to be a daddy. That’s how pathetic I was.

Anyway, back to the song. As I said, I do not like it at all, no offense meant to the singers. They did not do justice to that beautiful and soulful song. Hay. I do not have a lovelife now and not having one is not a real cause for alarm, I’m telling you. But I still feel tears welling up my eyes everytime I hear the original version of this song:

I can’t believe what I just heard
Could it be true
Are you the girl I thought I knew
The one who promised me her love
Where did it go
Does anybody ever know
How do you heal a broken heart
That feels like it will never beat this much again
Oh noI just can’t let go
How do you heal a broken heart
That feels like it will never love this much again
(Oh no)Tonight I’ll hold what could be right
Tomorrow I’ll pretend to let you go
And were you ever what you seemed
Or was I a fool who fell in love
With his own dream
And now you say you want to leave
Start a new life today
Those words I thought you’d never say
How do you heal a broken heart

That feels like it will never beat this much again

Oh noI just can’t let go


How do you heal a broken heart

That feels like it will never love this much again

(Oh no) Tonight I’ll hold what could be right
Tomorrow I’ll pretend to
Wake and put it all behind me
And find that I have finally found
A new life, in my soul
And find that I know how to let you go…you go
How do you heal a broken heart

That feels like it will never beat this much again

Oh no I just can’t let go

How do you heal a broken heart

That feels like it will never love this much again

(Oh no)Tonight I’ll hold what could be right
Tomorrow i’ll pretend to
Wake and put it all behind me
And find that I know how to let you go
How sad.

Another song is If The Feeling Is Gone by Kyla, sung by Ella May Saison in 1995 (?). Kyla is uhm…good… but I love Ella May’s version more talaga eh. Mas nasasaktan ako sa version ni Ella May. Huwahaha.
