Break The Cycle

  • Lyrics
  • This is the second single by the folk music duo You+Me, who consist of Alecia Moore (better known as Pink) and Dallas Green, who has released a series solo albums under the City and Colour moniker. Moore wrote this song as a letter to her mother. "We were at the bar talking and I really wanted to write a song about my mom," she told The Huffington Post. "It didn't turn out to be quite the love song I thought it would be, but it's very honest and came out to be so much more."

    "The words of the chorus is the loving, nurturing part," Green added. "I did not expect this song to turn out the way it did and it's so good."
