Heartbreak Story

Album: Word Of Mouth (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • 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.
