How Could An Angel Break My Heart, Truly Touching Song By Declan Galbraith…. April 19, 2009

Posted by Aman.... in Random Stuff.


At times, you come across certain things which just shake you apart. You never knew about them before but when you know about them, all you can do is just say thanks to the god that you did get face to face with them. If you are a regular here, you may already be knowing that I love music and its very rare that I miss a good piece of music. But at times, it happens, due to my so much busy schedules, I don’t get time to search and listen some of them. Though it does happen very rare but yes, it still does happen. And if you have been a regular here , you must be knowing already, I love to hear those songs which have meaning, which depict emotions as I believe, emotions are the only thing which make us a human, otherwise we are just as like that beast who have a body, hunger, who lives and dies. Its the emotions which makes a living person, a human and out of so many emotions in this world, the most soul touching emotion is of pain, sadness. No one in this world can say that he/she has not tasted this emotion. There may be many who would tell that they have never become happy, but no one, as much I can think of, can claim that he/she was never ever sad. And when we are talking about sadness and pain, there is no deeper pain than the pains which one gets in love and that too, from none else but from his own love! Yes, it takes a life time and even more to get the wounds of the soul healed which are caused by the broken pieces of the heart. Those who do it, they never care about this, they never bother about these wounds. They just remain busy with what ever they were doing before, thinking that they have not done anything at all or worse, come up with some excuses/logics/explanations to justify the pains given by them only but that doesn’t do anything good for those who have got their hearts broken and their eyes filled with just tears , thanks entirely to their loved ones! When this happens, all one is having is just questions whose answers he/she seeks from all but alas, no one has them! You just sit and think what was so wrong that I did that I had to face all this, what was left missing in my love that I had got tears in reward for being in love. When you ask someone , all they say, you don’t know how to love , there must be some thing that you have done wrong , not knowing that at times , even when you give your everything in love, it doesn’t get counted at all and is called stupidity. Yet you do this, not because that you want some thing by doing this but all you can see while even getting your head slayed on the road , is just the face of your love, that smile which is precious more than anything in this world! You do all what you can do and even more than that too, for that someone special with just one wish, just one small wish that at least she would understand this, care about it, embrace it in her heart! When no one else can see your tears and keeps on hurting you, you still don’t mind because you know, that some one special will wipe all of them with her hands, will make you smile, will hold you tight in that hug which is incomparable to anything else in the world. Yes, you do feel all this! But when that some one special only breaks that very heart of yours which you had given to her already, when instead of wiping tears from the eyes, she gets them filled with the same for the rest of the life, all you do is just ask yourself, how could it happen? What was so wrong that you did that you have got this much severe punishment? Is wishing for just one smile is such a big crime that for this, tears, cries and pains are supposed to be given for the rest of the life? You wish to die but even that does play with you. You are forced to live yet to die with every breath! All you do is just ask that why did it happen with you, a question whose answer is no where!
It is said that emotions can’t be seen. True, but that’s the time when words come and become the face of those emotions. And when words get combined with a voice which depicts the pain of those words, combined with the music, a gem gets prepared! The following song is like this only. Declan Galbraith is one of those very few souls who are blessed by God himself and have got a divine voice! If you haven’t heard him yet, you haven’t heard music at all, too big statement to make but yes, its true! He started singing from a very very young age and even now, when he is not a kid anymore,  his voice is just getting more and more better! This song that I going to post here, is the song which depicts the emotions of a guy whose beloved cheated on him and went to some one else, leaving him asking just the question that how could it happen, how could some one break his heart?  I wasn’t able to search an official video for it(yet) so I am posting a made-up video. Here it is,
And here are the lyrics of this song which are in English,
I heard she sang a lullaby
I heard she sang it from her heart
When I found out thought I would die
Because that lullaby was mine!
I heard she sealed it with a kiss
and gently kissed her cherry lips
I found that so hard to believe
Because her kiss belonged to me!
How could an angel break my heart!
Why didn’t she catch my falling star!
I wish I didn’t wish so hard,
Maybe I wished our love apart,
How could an angel break my heart!!
I heard here face was white as rain,
Soft as a rose that blooms in May!
He keeps her picture in a frame,
And when he sleeps he calls her name!
I wonder if she makes him smile,
The way she used to smile at me!
I hope he doesn’t make her laugh,
Because her laugh belongs to me!
How could an angel break my heart!!
Why didn’t she catch my falling star?
I wish I didn’t wish so hard,
Maybe I wish our love apart!
How could an angel break my heart!!
Oh my soul is dying, it’s crying!
I’m trying to understand,
Please help me!!
How could an angel break my heart!!
Why didn’t he catch my falling star,
I wish I didn’t wish so hard,
Maybe I wished our love apart
How could an angel break my heart!!
How could an angel break my heart!!
I shall conclude by saying this only that if you can’t give smiles to some one, you have got no rights to give him/her tears too! It takes a life time for the wounds of broken heart to get healed. It is said that time heals the wounds but even time too can’t vanish the signs of those. If some one loves you, do take care of that loving heart, make sure you do anything but not let that heart be broken! If it would get broken, surely it would hurt that person but some where , you are breaking some thing which is  just keeping you safe and secure from all! Don’t break that very heart which has nothing but love just for you. Its not every day that love comes to one and its not every day when someone sheds tears for your tears and smiles for your smiles. Don’t give tears to those eyes for whom world is limited to your face,to  your existence as if you are there and smiling then only this world exists and is a heaven, if you are not or are sad, there is nothing which is good! Don’t give pain to those who always stand to take your pains away. Its very easy to break someone’s heart and than say a “sorry”. But remember, if sorry would had been able to heal broken hearts, no lover would had died in this world, no eye would had tears in it ever! If you have some one who loves you so much, treasure him/her more than anything else because every thing else is possible to be achieved  in this world, but to make some one love you from the core of his heart and soul,  for this, there is still no methodology available and neither would ever be as it just happens! You may be able to get the most precious things of this world, earn the biggest wealths but its not every day, some one would love you truly! You can achieve anything in this world, a good job, a good study in abroad, a good career and life but may not some one who would be the happiest one in this world to see you achieving all this! Don’t give tears to those eyes who see happiness in your smile only! Love is the most beautiful gift that one can have in his life, let it be like that only, don’t make it the biggest pain that one has to carry for the rest of his/her life.

Thanks Aman. It’s really really a touching song that I love from Declan. You did an excellent interpretation and understanding on this song!
I just noticed a little imperfection of Declan’s voice in this song: his voice quavers a bit due to adolescence. Nonetheless, it accidentally enhances the character and the colour of the music. It brings me a stronger and more depressing feeling.
I’ve just got a question. Have you ever heard “An Angel” from Declan? Another beautiful performance (an the most popular one apart from “Tell Me Why”) of the lad. However, I couldn’t understand the last part of the lyrics (which is also considered as the most beautiful part of the song by many ppl). Here’s the part:
“But there’s danger in the air
Tryin’ so hard to be unfair
Danger’s in the air
Tryin’ so hard to give us a scare”
I tried to google the meaning of the song but the results couldn’t satisfy me.
Aman, have you got any idea?

Thanks Aman. It’s really really a touching song that I love from Declan. You did an excellent interpretation and understanding on this song!

Thanks for the kind words.I just tried to put my feelings about what the song is all about, pain in love. Glad to hear that you liked it.

I guess his voice is going to take couple of modulations with the growing age. Voice gets matured at a certain age and those who start singing early, they must feel this trauma. People do like them more at the younger age but when they get more mature, so would be the voice and that’s where the transition point comes up. I wouldn’t advice someone to start singing professionaly at a young age, learning is fine but singing no IMHO. To be honest, I didn’t like his voice 😉 .

I am sorry, I didn’t hear this song. I did check the lyrics today when you posted this song here but I couldn’t able to understand the real meaning of these lines, sorry 😦 .

Hey Aman,

It’s me, much thanks for your kind reply. 😉
Frankly I do not really agree with some of your points lol. Don’t know if I had misunderstood anything but I just thought if no one sings at very young age like Declan, we will not be able to listen to those young music talents. And sth really surprised me is that you didn’t like his voice! :O
I think Declan’s voice has a really unique character..It’s true that some ppl like me are addicted to it but some ppl like you don’t go for it:p It depends. But anyway it’s really interesting to hear from you. 🙂
So…yeah, despite you said you didn’t like his voice, I hope you’d enjoy another hits by him.
Two must listen..! (ahhh yeah i’m in love XD)

An Angel – Declan Galbraith

(The part from 2:43 really blew me away..)

Tell Me Why – Declan Galbraith

(a very meaningful song)


God bless,

I didn’t mean to say that young children should not sing. What I wanted to say that there is a voice change that comes between an age of 15 to 21. Within that age, the voice of a singer gets more matured and most likely, those who start singing professionally face this that the innocence which they did show when they were young, gets disappeared with the growing age. That was my point. If you hear his song Tell me why and compare the voice with his more recent songs, you would be able to see a very clear distinction in his voice and that lack of punch which was there when he was young and sung that song. All what I wanted to say was that young children shouldn’t start performing professionaly. They should learn and start doing public appearances at the age of at least 16 so that they don’t get end up with people comparing them with their own past voice.

I enjoy and appreciate any good music Rubiz, singer is just a mean to convey the thoughts. I feel,the lyricist and musician has much more larger role than the singer as without words, a singer can’t sing anything, doesn’t matter how good/bad his voice may be! Its the words which makes the song, music gives it the feel. A singer merely gives a face to all this. So yes, though the singer is very important but he just completes that chain which essentially starts from that first thought which the writer had when he started writing that song. You may call it weird opinion but I can’t help it, that’s me 🙂 .

I do like Decllan’s songs and especially the 2nd one 😉 !


2. rubiz - July 31, 2009


Yeah..so I see your point:-).
IMHO, the voice plays the biggest role when I first listening to a music. If the voice can rise my interest, I’d keep listening to it and then consider its melody and lyrics etc. I think you are kinda minority who really fully considers each component of the music. You know, many people just blindly follow their celeb and say his/her songs are great and blahblahblah and don’t care the quality of the song.
Frankly I rarely paid attention to the meaning behind the music so I gotta learn from you, Aman..:-)
Hmm that’s all I’d like to say. Just wanna say a big thanks to you. Hope you’d come across more good music in the future and keep sharing with us (esp. Declan’s 😀 <-my fav. lol).

Yes voice does and as I said, its the face of the song/music that everyone see. And surely its one of the most important ingredetiants of a good composition. But if we really see , its not the only thing which makes a song, a good song. And most importantly, we always give credit to singer then musician, that’s it. We never give credit , heck we never even bother who wrote that song which I guess is backbone of any good song. A good write up is must along with a good tune to make up a good song. Singer just comes and sings those words over that tune. So in a way, singer does a lot but in the same way, he does very little 🙂 .

I don’t put myself restricted to any singer/celeb. Music is music is music, its not from just one singer, writer or musician. All have their own taste and I have too, I don’t listen Rock music. Not that its bad or I don’t listen to it at all, it doesn’t appeal to me most of the times. Still I love the song, Its my life. But in general, I like good music, be it from some one singing over the road, sitting along with me( my friend wrote and sung a truly touching song, can make anyone cry) or from some celeb, music is music.

I shall always try to share good music here so “stay tuned” 🙂 . I don’t have a very great sense about music but I guess, I do figure out some what bad from really bad 🙂 . Just kidding!

Thanks for the kind comments. Please do keep coming back with them in future as well.

I’m so grateful for what Declan has been giving us since he was 9. I cannot imagine what a huge loss it would be if he had waited to perform at an older age. I love his magical voice all the way.

Aman, it seems to me as you read my thoughts, really. Thanks… Tina
