Land   Verenigde Staten

De jaren 90 worden overspoeld met boyband als Boyzone, Take That, Five en de Backstreet Boys. 5 jongens uit Orlando Florida veroveren de wereld en scoren de ene hit na de andere in de Top 40 met hits als We've Got It Goin' On, I'll Never Break Your Heart en Everybody. In 1999 scoren ze een nummer 1-hit met I Want It That Way die vanuit het niets op 1 binnen komt. Begin deze eeuw neemt het succes af en scoren de heren met Just Want You To Know in 2005 hun laatste hit.

In de jaren die volgen weten ze met nummers als I Still..., Inconsolable, Helpless When She Smiles en Show Em (What You're Made Of) nog wel in de Tipparade te komen.



In 2018 viert de groep het 25-jarige jubileum en ter gelegenheid van die mijlpaal geven ze een concertreeks in Las Vegas. Ook verschijnt er in mei van dat jaar een nieuwe single van de 'boys' met Don't Go Breaking My Heart.




Songtekst

AJ:
ohhh...

Brian:
Don't pretend you're sorry
you know you're not
You know you got the power to make me weak inside
And girl you leave me breathless
But it's ok
Cause you are my survival
Now hear me say...

Howie:
I can't imagine life without your love
And even forever don't seem like long enough

Chorus:
'Cause everytime I breathe I take you in
And my heart beats again
Baby I can't help it
You keep me drowning in your love
Everytime I try to rise above
I'm swept away by love
Baby I can't help it
You keep me drowning in your love

AJ:
Maybe I'm a drifter
maybe not
Cause I have known the safety of floating freely in your arms
I don't need another lifeline
It's not for me
Cause only you can save me
Oh, can't you see

Nick:
I can't imagine life without your love
And even forever don't seem like long enough
(Brian: Don't seem like long enough, yeah)

Chorus:
Cause everytime I breathe I take you in
And my heart beats again
Baby I can't help it
You keep me drowning in your love
And everytime I try to rise above
I'm swept away by love
Baby I can't help it
You keep me drowning in your love

Kevin:
Go on and pull me under
Cover me with dreams, yeah
Love me mouth to mouth now
You know I can't resist
Cause you're the air that I breathe

Chorus:
Everytime I breathe I take you in (Brian: everytime I breathe, yeah)
And my heart beats again
Baby I can't help it (AJ: baby I can't help it)
Keep me drowning in your love
And everytime I try to rise above
I'm swept away by love
Baby I can't help it (Brian: Baby I can't help it)
Keep me drowning in your love (Brian: Loooooooooooooooooove)

Baby I can't help it
Keep me drowning in your love (Nick: Keep me drowning in your love)

AJ: Whoa,
Got me drowning

AJ: Keep me drowning in your love

Baby I can't help it (Nick: I can't help it, can't help it, no no)

Everytime I breathe I take you in (AJ: I do)
And my heart beats again (a.j: ohhhh)
Baby I can't help it (Brian: Baby I can't help it)
Keep me drowning in your love
Every time I try to rise above
(Brian: Everytime I try to rise, rise above)

Brian: I'm swept away by love

Baby I can't help it

AJ: You keep me drowning in.... your love
