"Break This Heartbreak" is a song by Kylie Minogue from the Sleepwalker EP, which was released in September 2014. The song was written by Peter Wade Keusch, Fernando Garibay and Amanda Warner, while production was handled by Garibay. The song appears as the second track on the EP.

The song was sampled in Will.i.am's 2016 single featuring Pia Mia, entitled "Boys & Girls".

Background and release

"Break This Heartbreak" first made an appearance during Kylie's Kiss Me Once Tour; the Sleepwalker film was played for the first time before the opening night of the tour in Liverpool, England, on 24 September 2014; the film contained only three of the four songs that were to be released on the EP, omitting "Chasing Ghosts", as this was to be included in the main show as a video interlude. Said short film was then played before every show of the tour.

The EP was released onto SoundCloud on 26 September 2014, before the second show of the tour in Manchester, England, for free download.

Originally, the song was slated to be performed as part of the Kiss Me Once Tour, using the Sleepwalker film for projection, and the glass coffin as a prop in the performance. The performance was slated to be the dancers' favourite moment of the show, but for unknown reasons, the song was discarded from the show and instead used in the short film prior to the show.

Lyrics

(Back in the love)
(Back in the love)

In the night alone we stay up late
Even stars so bright, they fade away
But we can't escape what we make
But it can wake this heartbreak, break

Break this heartbreak, break-break
This heartbreak, break-break
This heartbreak, break-break
This heart (heart, heart, heart) break
Break this heart (heart, heart, heart) break
This heart (heart, heart, heart) break
Break this heart-heartbreak

Every time we said the time is through
No signs to tell us what to do
But we can't escape what we make
But it can wake this heartbreak, break

Break this heartbreak, break-break
This heartbreak, break-break
Only this heartbreak, break-break
Only this heart (heart, heart, heart) break
Only this
Only gonna (break, break)
Only gonna

But we can't escape what we made
But it can wait, this heartbreak

Break this heartbreak, break-break
This heartbreak, break-break
This heartbreak, break-break
This heart (heart, heart, heart) break
Break this heart (heart, heart, heart) break
This heart (heart, heart, heart) break
Break this heart-heartbreak
