#TheScriptChallenge: Breakeven

Welcome to the third week of The Script Challenge! Join this week by creating something inspired by Breakeven.

I’m still alive but I’m barely breathing
Just prayin’ to a God that I don’t believe in
‘Cause I got time while she got freedom
‘Cause when a heart breaks, no, it don’t break even

Her best days will be some of my worst
She finally met a man that’s gonna put her first
While I’m wide awake she’s no trouble sleeping
‘Cause when a heart breaks no it don’t break even… even… no

What am I supposed to do when the best part of me was always you?
And what am I supposed to say when I’m all choked up and you’re OK?
I’m falling to pieces, yeah,
I’m falling to pieces

They say bad things happen for a reason
But no wise words gonna stop the bleeding
‘Cause she’s moved on while I’m still grieving
And when a heart breaks no it don’t break even, even… no

What am I gonna do when the best part of me was always you?
And what am I supposed to say when I’m all choked up and you’re OK?
I’m falling to pieces, yeah,
I’m falling to pieces, yeah,
I’m falling to pieces
(One still in love while the other one’s leaving)
I’m falling to pieces
(‘Cause when a heart breaks no it don’t break even)

Oh, you got his heart and my heart and none of the pain
You took your suitcase, I took the blame.
Now I’m tryna make sense of what little remains, ooh
‘Cause you left me with no love and honour to my name.

I’m still alive but I’m barely breathing
Just prayin’ to a God that I don’t believe in
‘Cause I got time while she got freedom
‘Cause when a heart breaks, no, it don’t break…
No, it don’t break
No, it don’t break even, no

What am I gonna do when the best part of me was always you?
And what am I supposed to say when I’m all choked up and you’re OK?
(Oh glad you’re okay now)
I’m falling to pieces, yeah
I’m falling to pieces, yeah
(Oh I’m falling, falling)
I’m falling to pieces,
(One still in love while the other one’s leaving)
I’m falling to pieces
(‘Cause when a heart breaks, no, it don’t break even)

Oh, it don’t break even no
Oh, it don’t break even no
Oh, it don’t break even no

“They say bad things happen for a reason but no wise words gonna stop the bleeding”

This is the line of the week, use this as inspiration for your submission. I’ve chosen this one because some believe there’s a reason to everything that happens to us, good or bad, while some don’t share that opinion. But either way, how does that comfort you when you’re in pain? It’s a line that makes me think so I thought it’s a good candidate for some soul-searching art!

Make sure you include the quote somewhere (anywhere) in your creation.

For example:

  • an edit with that line
  • you singing the song (cover)
  • draw something that reflects the quote and include it in the caption
  • write a short story that includes that line
  • etc.

Have a look at first week’s submissions if you need some ideas.

Guidelines

When I say “creation”, I use it in the widest of sense: it can be a drawing, painting, montage, photograph, digital or manual art, edits, videos, gifs, short stories, poems, real life stories, blog posts, music and anything else you can think of when you say art. Don’t limit yourself with the format.

Please include the line of the week in your art. It doesn’t have to be featured as the main piece but it has to be included at least in the caption.

Only submissions sent until midnight Dublin time on Saturday will be included in the challenge.

You’ve probably noticed, I really like hashtags, so please humour me and use the hashtag (#TheScriptChallenge) when you share your art on social media. 🙂

You don’t have to do it every week: you can join whenever you feel like it. No excuse not to do it, really! 🙂 The more you practice art the better so to help that along there are special prizes for the “frequent fliers” 🙂

Any questions, let me know.

Love,

Andrea
