"Break My Heart" is a song about fake friends. Rod Wave highlights a pal he used to hang out with since their schooldays. They played truant and broke into houses together, but once Wave became famous, his friend's attitude towards him changed. Now the rapper finds it hard to tell the "real from the fake and the fake from the flawed." It breaks Wave's heart that he doesn't know who he can trust anymore.
Wave samples some of Sam Smith's vocals from his 2022 hit "Love Me More" to show how his struggle to make real friends has affected his self-esteem.
Every day, I'm trying not to hate myself But lately, it's not hurtin' like it did before Just a little bit, love me more

John Lennon wrote "The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill" about Richard Cooke, a hunter he met at the Maharishi's camp in India. Cooke hasn't shot anything since the camp, except with his camera - he became a freelance photographer for National Geographic.
It really was so easy for Linda Ronstadt to score a hit with her Buddy Holly cover of "It's So Easy." She would sometimes change the lyric to: "It's so easy to have a hit, all you have to do is recycle it."
