    How Can You Mend a Broken Heart
    Bee Gees

    Track 1 on
    Trafalgar

    “After 16 months of breaking-up, the Bee Gees reunited, therefore writing this song for their brotherly sorrow and happiness. “How Can You Mend a Broken Heart” is the opening track of the ninth studio album Trafalgar, which was released in April 1970.

    Barry recalled the meeting:

    Robin came to my place, and that afternoon we wrote ‘How Can You Mend a Broken Heart’ and that obviously was a link to us coming back together. We called Maurice, finished the song, went to the studio and once again, with only ‘How Can You Mend a Broken Heart’ as a basic structure, we went in to the studio with that and an idea for ‘Lonely Days’, and those two songs were recorded that night. We might imitate a certain group, later on, the group will pick up on the song and say that suits us.”

    Intentionally written for Andy Williams, the request was denied. The Bee Gees decided to record it themselves. And yet it became another success”. {Ref. Genius.com}

    FYI note that there is also a movie / documentary of the samename, and, it’s available on Amazon, say. [The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend A Broken Heart is an Emmy Award winning American documentary film, directed by Frank Marshall. It follows the life and career of legendary, award-winning family band The Bee Gees. The film had its worldwide release on December 12, 2020 through HBO Max.]

    LYRICS

    [Verse 1]
    I can think of younger days when living for my life
    Was everything a man could want to do
    I could never see tomorrow
    But I was never told about the sorrows

    [Chorus]
    And, how can you mend a broken heart?
    How can you stop the rain from falling down?
    How can you stop the sun from shining?
    What makes the world go round?
    How can you mend this broken man?
    How can a loser ever win?
    Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again

    [Verse 2]
    I can still feel the breeze that rustles through the trees
    And misty memories of days gone by
    We could never see tomorrow
    No one said a word about the sorrow

    [Chorus]
    And how can you mend a broken heart?
    How can you stop the rain from falling down?
    How can you stop the sun from shining?
    What makes the world go round?
    And how can you mend this broken man?
    How can a loser ever win?
    Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again

    [Bridge]
    La la la la la la, la la la la
    La la la la la la, la la la la

    [Outro]
    Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again
    Da da da da
    Da da da da, da da da da da, da

    Songwriters: Barry Gibb / Robin Gibb
