Break-up songs are so plentiful that they constitute a whole category of popular music. My personal favorite is Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright.” “Beautiful Dawn” by the Wailin’ Jennys is right up there too. It’s sad, lovely, and gracious. The way to mend a broken heart is to pray like this.
Teach me how to see when I close my eyes
Teach me to forgive and to apologize
Show me how to love in the darkest dark
There’s only one way to mend a broken heart
