Country music star Hunter Hayes has dropped "Heartbreak," his first official single since 2016. Read more about the country singers upbeat tune here!

Hunter Hayes has a message for his hopeless romantic fanbase. His brand new song, “Heartbreak,” is all about optimism. The Louisiana native has suffered several heartbreaks, but he refuses to let broken relationships hold him back. “I’m one heartbreak closer to you,” he sings. That’s a positive spin on a tough situation!

“After a relationship ends, I think we all want to know that there is someone for us but unfortunately, a lot of people have been lead to believe that you’re supposed to feel shitty,” the country singer says. “I wanted this song to turn that feeling around for people and remind them not to let someone walk out the door with your. happiness and your self-worth.”

The 27-year-old country star wrote “Heartbreak” after his breakup with his ex-girlfriend, Libby Barnes. “It was a combination of things — me really wanting to write to that person, but me also really wanting to just explain what I was going through on the search,” Hayes told People. “I started writing it on my trip to Hawaii at the beginning of last year, where I sat on the edge of the ocean and wrote nearly two pages of lyrics that approached a love letter to someone I’ve never met.”

Although an official release date for Hayes’ forthcoming album has not been finalized, the record will feature “Heartbreak” as its lead single. Check out “Heartbreak” below…

“Heartbreak” Lyrics

Another “almost perfect”
Didn’t work, but totally worth it
Better to have loved and lost my mind
Than lose the nerve to even try
Another conversation,
Awkward, but the ice is breaking
I’ve been in love some shit relationships
But I’ve remained an optimist

It’s not a game I’m playing
It’s not a thrill I’m chasing
More like a space I’m saving
And I don’t even know your name

But if it gets me to you, then it ain’t wasted time
With every “so close,” I’m closer to the rest of my life
Another bad first date (Check)
Another “nothing left to say” (Check)
What I mean is, the way I see it
I’m one heartbreak closer to you, you

Hey baby, can I call you baby? Is that okay?
I don’t even know you, but I can’t wait to know you someday
Imagine someday when we look back
I’ll thank my past for giving me my future better half

I’m sorry for the time it’s taking
But I’ma make it worth the waiting
And all this wrong love that I learned from
Was just practice for the right one

If it gets me to you, then it ain’t wasted time
With every “so close,” I’m closer to the rest of my life
Another “just got played” (Check)
A shot of bourbon for the pain (Check)
What I mean is, the way I see it
I’m one heartbreak closer to you, you

It’s kinda strange to miss
Someone I haven’t met yet
Someone I haven’t kissed yet
But I’ll go through it all

If it gets me to you, then it ain’t wasted time
With every “So close,” I’m closer to the rest of my life
Another sad goodbye (Check)
Another sleepless night (Check)
What I mean is, the way I see it
I’m one heartbreak closer to you, you, you, you
One heartbreak closer to you
