It’s that moment when you realize you’ve done all you can, you’ve tried your best, but you don’t know how to say it’s over. It’s the hardest thing in the world, breaking up with someone, but sometimes it’s the only thing you can do. Maybe the relationship is toxic, or maybe you’ve just grown apart. Whatever the reason, breaking up is never simple. You might be afraid of hurting their feelings, or of what they might say if they find out. But sometimes you have to think about what’s best for you, and not what’s best for them.
In her new single Break Us, singer-songwriter Bianca Martone depicts the feeling of being ready to let go, but not knowing how. Uncertainty is what keeps us stuck in unhappy relationships. When we’re not sure what we want, it’s hard to take the necessary steps to get it. We’re paralyzed by fear of making the wrong decision. The lyrics of Break Us are so powerful and real, it’s hard not to feel connected to them.
