I never lived until l I loved. And I never suffered until I lost it. Allowing myself to fall in love was the scariest leap I ever took. And when it crumbled, my greatest fear became my worst reality. Despite the excruciating pain of a broken heart, I wouldn't change the experience for anything. For the days in love were some of the best days of my life. And I would not be who I am today without yesterday.
After going through my recent heartbreak, I started talking to friends about their heartbreak stories. And they all had at least one. I realized as empty and alone as I felt, I was in fact just the same as everyone else. We've all lost someone. We've all felt desperately broken and isolated at some point in our lives. So I thought I'd try an experiment—a way to connect us all as emotional, damaged and fragile human beings. And then maybe we can start healing our broken hearts, and put some of the pieces back together again.
I am writing 50 songs about 50 different broken hearts, and will be performing them in various New York City subway stations. Here's where I need your help. I want you to submit your story to me. Tell me about a time in your life where your heart was completely shattered. What happened? What caused it? Was it a relationship? Was it someone who passed away? Did you lose your faith? Did you lose yourself? The more details you share with me, the more of a kick ass song I can write inspired by your story. Please give me a creative title for your story in few words, and if you feel comfortable sharing, your age. You can choose to submit your first name or go anonymous.
I have my story - what's yours?
