"Unbreak My Code"

Open-source songwriting ^_^

This is a random act of silliness precipitated by comments Albert made while working on Mixxx. It would be fun to have this recorded in time for a release as a promo track. So first, we must write lyrics! Add wherever you can, but try to match the number of syllables to the original line. The nice thing is that many of the original lines apply unchanged to programming! LOL

If you have an alternate idea for something already written, add another column to the table so we can vote later.

(Music & original lyrics ©2006 by the master of love songs, Diane Warren. Original performance by Toni Braxton.) If you haven't heard it before, see the music video here.

OursOriginal
I'm hanging my head in shameDon't leave me in all this pain
you caught me with b-z-r blameDon't leave me out in the rain
.Come back and bring back my smile
.Come and take these tears away
.I need your arms to hold me now
.The nights are so unkind
.Bring back those nights when I held you beside me
Un-break my codeUn-break my heart
Say you'll com-pile againSay you'll love me again
Undo this hurt you causedUndo this hurt you caused
When you gave me that err'rWhen you walked out the door
And refused to rebuildAnd walked out of my life
Un-cry these tearsUn-cry these tears
I cried so many nightsI cried so many nights
Un-break my codeUn-break my heart
My codeMy heart

.Take back that sad word good-bye
.Bring back the joy to my life
.Don't leave me here with these tears
.Come and kiss this pain away
.I can't forget the day you left
.Time is so unkind
And life is so cruel with seg-men-ta-tion faults nowAnd life is so cruel without you here beside me
