The Wanted's Max George penned the lyrics for this Soft Rock anthem about his breakup from ex-fiancée Michelle Keegan. The singer and the British actress broke up in July 2012 after dating for 18 months, but Max is clearly having a hard time coming to terms with the split,. "We've written about tough experiences we've had in our lives over the years - relationship breakdowns and that sort of thing," he told UK newspaper The Mirror. "I've written about my break-up with Michelle. I've written a couple of songs about it and the experiences I went through. There's one song called 'Heartbreak Story,' which is definitely close to me."
The relationship ended after reports surfaced about Max cheating on Michelle and this song has very apologetic lyrics.
"Just say you'll let me in your heart. I should've been there from the start. I promise you as long as you're with me There'll never be a heartbreak story."
Max wishes he could go back in time and regain Michelle's trust.
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
