First introduction

Don't Let It Break Your Heart (DLIBYH) couldn’t possibly be heading in any more different a direction emotionally (than Up In Flames). It’s almost violently life affirming. I remember texting Phil during the Glastonbury rehearsals when they first played Charlie Brown in its live incarnation. I was amazed at how vast and invigorating it sounded. They’re going to blow the sodding walls out when they kick into this one tomorrow. [2]

Reviews

Don't Let It Break Your Heart
In the article by Q Magazine published on 10th October 2011 entitled "First Impressions of... Coldplay's Mylo Xyloto"[3] they wrote: "A sister-track to Every Teardrop... in the way its driven by stop-start rhythm of the drums and the way Martin forms an indelible hook out of the wall of sound sonic avalanches around him, Don't Let It Break Your Heart is one of Mylo Xyloto's most straightforward songs, a precursor, ala A Rush Of Blood's A Whisper, before a final bombastic blow-out?"

The Oracle on Don't Let It Break Your Heart

January 30, 2012 - submitted by Jean, Puerto Rico
Q. Dear Oracle, my question is: Why haven't the boys played U.F.O., Don't Let It Break Your Heart and Up With The Birds live? They are part of the album and I feel as if they've been left out, please answer, back to you now.
The Oracle replies:
They have never played all the songs from an album. I'm pretty sure there was one song from each of the first four albums left out (Parachutes from Parachutes, A Whisper from AROBTTH, Twisted Logic from X&Y and Reign of Love from Viva la Vida).
I guess being part of an album doesn't necessarily mean part of a tour is a given. Some songs just don't work live or don't fit into the setlist.
I think your question could be changed to why haven't the boys played those songs yet. They still may; they've got a lot of dates. U.F.O and Up With The Birds could easily be X stage additions at least. It's too early to say whether they'll make an appearance though.

Q. Is DLIBYH an acronym, or is that the actual song title?
Thanks very much
Tom
The Oracle replies:
How exactly would you be pronouncing that then Tom? It's an acronym just as other titles to songs on the album have appeared: UATW, CB, ETIAW, MM, MTM, HLH and POC.
The most asked question over the past 24 hours has been 'what does DLIBYH mean?'
You know I can't reveal that but there's only been one guess cropping up.

Live

The song was first played live at Rexall Place, Edmonton, Canada on 17 April 2012.


Lyrics

And if I lost the map
If I lost it all
Or fell into the trap
Then she’d call
'When you’re tired of racing
And you find you never left the start
Come on baby
Don’t let it break your heart'

Though heavily we bled
Still on we crawl
Try to catch a cannonball
And a slowly burning tide
Through my veins is flowing
From my shipwreck I heard her call

She said 'When you’re tired of aiming your arrows
Still you never hit the mark
Even in your rains and shadows
Still we’re never going to part
Come on baby
Don’t let it break your heart
Oh oh oh oh oh 
Don’t let it break your heart
Oh oh oh oh oh 
Don’t let it break your heart

Don’t let it break your heart'
