There’s a reason why Whitesnake remains thriving even by today’s standards: the band knows how to pull a good ol’ rock & roll. Watch and be amazed at them in this 1981 performance of theirs inside the German TV Show, Rock Pop.

The band can be seen performing their song, “Don’t Break My Heart Again” released from their 1981 studio album Come an’ Get It. David Coverdale wrote the song in response to the breakup of his first marriage; Bernie Marsden’s guitar solo was recorded in one take.

“Don’t Break My Heart Again” reached no. 17 on the UK singles chart. The band’s music video for the song is the same video they recorded inside the show. With that, let’s watch and sing along with the lyrics presented below.

 

“Don’t Break My Heart Again” lyrics:

 

I’m gonna take it to the limit of my love,

Before I turn and walk away

I’ve had enough of holding on

The promises of yesterday

Every day of my life, it seems,

Trouble’s knocking at my door,

It’s hard to try and satisfy

When you don’t know what you’re fighting for

 

Time and again I sing your song,

But, I’ve been runnin’ on empty far too long

I’ve had enough holdin’ on to the past,

Make no mistake, it could be your last

 

Don’t break my heart again, like you did before

Don’t break my heart again, I couldn’t take anymore

 

I never hide the feeling inside,

And though I’m standing my back to the wall,

I know that even in a summer love

A little bit of rain must fall

But, every road I take I know

Where it’s gonna lead me to,

Because I’ve travelled every highway

And they all keep coming back to you

 

Time and again I sing your song,

But, I’ve been runnin’ on empty far too long

I’ve had enough holdin’ on to the past,

Make no mistake, it could be your last

 

Don’t break my heart again, like you did before

Don’t break my heart again, I couldn’t take anymore

Don’t break my heart

 

Don’t break my heart again, like you did before

Don’t break my heart again, I couldn’t take anymore…
