This is a track from English folk band Noah and the Whale's second studio album, First Days Of Spring. The record is based on leader Charlie Fink's emotional meltdown after singer and former bandmate Laura Marling broke off their relationship.
In this song defeat is met with replenished hope. Fink told The Sun August 28, 2009: "My Broken Heart" is fully repaired and looking to the future. That track signals the end of the first section of the album, the point where all chance of reconciliation is lost."
Fink admitted to The Observer August 25, 2009: "The first time I listened to our new album in full I just broke down. I was in tears from the third track until the end. I've never had an experience like that before."
