Cassadee Pope Releases ‘I Wish I Could Break Your Heart’ Video
Cassadee Pope has released the video for her latest single, 'I Wish I Could Break Your Heart.'
The tune, which is from her debut 'Frame by Frame' album, resonated with Pope the first time she heard it.
“It’s a positive song but its kind of got this snarky, interesting negative side,” she tells Radio.com. “It’s not make or break. It’s not a heartbroken song where the world’s going to end but it’s a song about loving somebody. It’s a great relationship; you’re happy but you know that they could break you so easily and you feel so vulnerable. And you feel too weak compared to them and you wish if you could see if you could break them if they would fall apart. If they would fall to pieces."
The Season 3 winner of 'The Voice' says the angst of the song reminded her of Faith Hill's 2002 hit, 'Cry.'
“You just wish that that other person would feel a little more and you wish that you could almost make them cry, just to know that you have that power over them,” she notes. “But, it’s overall a very happy song. I love the silly, playful undertone that that song has.”
Pope, who wrote five of the 11 songs on her current album, did not write 'I Wish I Could Break Your Heart,' but she says it's an easy message for her to deliver.
"I think that’s a really cool and honest lyric," she explains. "It’s an outside song and I just love what it says.”
