This is a song of blistering heartbreak, as Braxton sings to her former lover, begging him to return to her and undo all the pain he has caused. It was written by Diane Warren, who creates very emotional songs with big, hooky choruses and titles that tell a story in just a few words: "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing
," "Why Did You Have To Be
," "Save Up All Your Tears
." Warren was surprised the phrase "Un-Break My Heart" hadn't been used as a title before.
