"Wish It Would Break"
In this song, the relationship is over, but he can't let go of all the things that remind him of her. The picture on the wall, the special song on the radio. He tries slamming the door to make the picture fall down, or banging on the radio when their song comes on, hoping that they'll break. He sings, "This ole heart's got a mind of it's own. It's decided not to let you go.And even though your love's no longer here, it won't let me shed one tear. 'Cause it's still holdin onto yesterday. I wish it would break." Download/Purchase
