Cassadee Pope, 'I Wish I Could Break Your Heart' video (WATCH)

By Stephen L. Betts. CREATED Feb 24, 2014

Cassadee Pope describes her new single, "I Wish I Could Break Your Heart," penned by Gordie Sampson, Ashley Monroe and Jon Green, as a song with a "snarky, interesting negative side." The singer has just released the accompanying music video for the tune, and says of the song, "It's not a heartbroken song where the world's going to end but it's a song about loving somebody. It's a great relationship; you're happy but you know that they could break you so easily and you feel so vulnerable. You feel too weak compared to them and you wish if you could see if you could break them if they would fall apart. If they would fall to pieces. I think that's a really cool and honest lyric."

The 24-year-old also says one of the reasons she was drawn to the song is because it reminded her of Faith Hill's 2002 hit, "Cry."

"You just wish that that other person would feel a little more and you wish that you could almost make them cry, just to know that you have that power over them," she notes. "But, it’s overall a very happy song. I love the silly, playful undertone that that song has."

The video was directed by Wes Edwards, the director of clips such as Randy Houser's "Goodnight Kiss," "1994," by Jason Aldean," and "I Hold On," by Dierks Bentley. "I Wish I Could Break Your Heart" is the second single from Cassadee's album, "Frame by Frame."
