June 11.2014 – The Story Behind “Somebody’s Heartbreak” by Hunter Hayes

The story behind Hunter Haye’s hit, “Somebody’s Heartbreak”…
“There was this girl that I really liked,” says Hunter. “It’s funny because it was the night before Valentine’s Day and I was trying to think of a cool, clever way to twist the ‘be mine’ thing. But at the same time I was thinking, ‘Here’s this girl that I like. In the back of my mind I know that I’m probably not the guys that she would want to be with. So if we were able to spend time together, she’d probably get bored hanging around with me for too long.’ So it was kind of like, ‘I know you’re going to leave.’ I knew she was interested in somebody else but … if I could just have one moment, it was exactly that. ‘If you’re gonna be somebody’s heartbreak, I’m here. Just sayin’, waving my hand, be mine.’”

I’m such a geek,” Hunter tells The Boot. “I’m so awkward and weird and shy and quiet. But I’m learning that I should write more songs for the girls that I want to make the message to, because apparently that’s way better than me talking. Because that’s never actually worked. [laughs] But it has taught me how to be honest.”

“Somebody’s Heartbreak” peaked at No. 9 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and has sold more than half a million downloads thus far

LYRICS: Written by Andrew Dorff, Luke Laird and Hunter Hayes
I’d love to know just what you’re thinkin’
Every little river, runnin’ through your mind
You give and you take
You come and you go
You leave me here wonderin’ if I’ll ever know
How much you care or how much you don’t
Whatever you need, whatever you want

If you’re gonna be somebody’s heartbreak
If you’re gonna be somebody’s mistake
If you’re gonna be somebody’s first time,
Somebody’s last time, baby be mine
If you’re lookin’ to be somebody’s ‘just friends’,
A little laughin’, little lovin’, never callin’ again, that’s just fine
If you’re gonna be somebody’s heartbreak
Be mine, yeah
Oh, be mine

I guess that all I’m tryin’ to tell ya
Is a minute with you is better than two without
Oh, I won’t be a fool but I can’t play it cool
So I’m playin’ safe and I’m breakin’ the rules
I’m wishin’ I had what I know that you got
So if you’re comin’ my way then please don’t stop

If you’re gonna be somebody’s heartbreak
If you’re gonna be somebody’s mistake
If you’re gonna be somebody’s first time,
Somebody’s last time, baby be mine
If you’re lookin’ to be somebody’s ‘just friends’,
A little laughin’, little lovin’, never callin’ again, that’s just fine
If you’re gonna be somebody’s heartbreak
Be mine
Oh, woah
If you’re gonna be somebody’s heartbreak
Or somebody’s mistake
Somebody’s first time, or their last time, baby be mine
If you’re lookin’ to be somebody’s ‘just friends’,
A little laughin’, little lovin’, never callin’ again, that’s just fine
If you’re gonna be somebody’s heartbreak
Be mine (If you’re gonna be somebody’s heartbreak)
Be mine (If you’re gonna be somebody’s mistake)
Oh, I’ll take my chances
If you’re gonna be someone’s heartbreak
If you’re gonna be someone’s mistake
Somebody’s first time, somebody’s last time
Be mine
Oh, be mine
Be mine
Baby, baby, baby, be mine, all mine
If you’re gonna break someone’s heart, yeah
Might as well, might as well be mine
