Melodifestivalen 2021: Klara Hammarström – “Beat of Broken Hearts”

While Klara is known in the Eurovision fandom for debuting the high-octane dance-pop single “Nobody” at the last edition of Melfest, she and her family go way back with the Swedish public. Klara was first featured in the SVT series Familjen Hammarström (The Hammarström Family), where viewers could follow the life of the equestrian mad Hammarström clan. Klara is one of eleven siblings.

After previously focusing on a career in horse riding and sports, Klara has made her move and now focuses on music full-time. Her single ”You Should Know Me Better” hit the top of the Swedish radio chart last winter.

What do the “Beat Of Broken Hearts” lyrics mean?

”It’s a song that a lot of people can relate to with a lovely message, and I would say that it’s a very beautiful song that could almost have been taken out of a Disney movie,” Klara says when asked about “Beat Of Broken Hearts”. But what exactly is that message? This upbeat pop number is about how can you find the motivation to keep going on even after you face something as deterring as a heartbreak. “The beat of broken hearts / Gonna gonna make it through / Gonna find a way for you / And heal our broken parts / Never ever fall apart”, sings Klara.

The songstress is direct. She’s not here for people keeping their emotions buried and putting up a strong front. “Ignore all sideshows distractions”, she commands. There’s nothing foolish about sharing your feelings — “Don’t care about the silly season”. But Klara admits that the process is tough. We might lose our way or fade away, but in time all our hearts will heal.

The song is composed by Melfest royalty. Fredrik Kempe and David Krueger have written several iconic Melfest hits, and went on to score a bronze in Eurovision, with the 2014 song “Undo”, by Sanna Nielsen. Teh duo, together with Niklas Carson Mattsson, have previously taken part with Jessica Andersson’s ”Party Voice” in 2018 and Jon Henrik Fjällgren’s ”Norrsken (Goeksegh)” in 2019. Uniting to the team is newcomer Andreas Wijk, an up-and-coming singer that has been constantly circled the writing camps in Sweden.

“Beat of Broken Hearts” lyrics — Klara Hammarström (Melfest 2021)

Ignore all sideshows distractions
Look neither right or left
Watch over your heart
That’s where life starts
Forget the rest

Honey there’s no other reason
Don’t care about the silly season
Tell me when your heart’s in pieces

The beat of broken hearts
Gonna gonna make it through
Gonna find a way for you
And heal our broken parts
Never ever fall apart
To the beat of broken hearts

Let nothing ever distract you
Not even highs or lows

Honey there’s no other reason
Don’t care about the silly season
Tell me when your heart’s in pieces

The beat of broken hearts
Gonna gonna make it through
Gonna find a way for you
And heal our broken parts
Never ever fall apart
To the beat of broken hearts

Even when we lose our way
And even if we fade away
To the beat of broken hearts

There’s a beat inside my chest
Can you hear the pieces
Can you hear the beating

And my heart it hurts like hell
Let the heaven clear it
Can you hear the beating

Oh no
Oh yeah

The beat of broken hearts
Gonna gonna make it through
Gonna find a way for you
And heal our broken parts
Never ever fall apart
To the beat of broken hearts

Even when we lose our way
If we lose our way
And even if we fade away
We’ll heal our broken parts
And never ever fall apart

To the beat of broken hearts
