Break Your Plans - The Fray


www.last.fm
by Simon Cleary 

The Experience: You meant to break up, maybe there was never any chance anyway. Maybe it's all gone. But wait! What if you don't? We can try again. Don't break up. Break your plans instead.


Official Video: A lonely fisherman finds a "second chance" when he catches a mermaid. He dreams of swimming off with her, to find her prayer answered - she sheds her scales and becomes human - but his prayer is also heard... He turns into a shark right as they were about to kiss for the second time. I guess the video changed our expectations - it Broke Our Plans. 


The Fray Break Your Plans meaning is a second chance for love. It might seem  your relationship would never work. It might seem like it could not last. But love doesn't depend on "fate." All that counts is what comes next. Why not try again? 
Slade does two things that men in tearing relationships often don't do: one, he stops being afraid to ask for healing and to state his feelings. Two, he doesn't promise it'll be easy. He admits there's no guarantee we'll make it. He just asks you to try. 

Ask Yourself: Do I give up on love? 


LYRICS:
I wish I had cheated
At least that’s a reason
I’d understand why you’re leaving now

We both stopped breathing
It could not last
I guess I’m just afraid to ask

But what if you don’t?
What if you stay and...

Break your plans tonight
Lay your hand in mine
There’s no guarantee we’ll make it, make this thing right
But break your plans for me tonight
Tonight...

You call this closure
It’s barely over
How do you move on so fast?

Maybe there’s someone
Maybe it’s all gone
I guess I’m just afraid to look back

But all that counts
Is what comes next

Break your plans tonight
Lay your hand in mine
There’s no guarantee we’ll make it, make this thing right
Break your plans for me tonight

And I know better
Than to stay just wondering for it
Will you stay and be with me?

Break your plans tonight
Lay your hand in mine
There’s no guarantee we’ll make it, no guarantee we’ll make it
Just break your plans tonight
Lay your hand in mine
There’s no guarantee we’ll make it, no guarantee we’ll make it
Just break your plans for me tonight
