Once again, a spiritual message is found in a secular song by the Bee Gees. It speaks of a broken man searching for answers to his brokenness. The theme of the song How Can You Mend a Broken Heart could well be from the Bible and especially the Job genre. He asks many questions such as, How can you stop the rain from falling down? How can you stop the sun from shining? What makes the world go round? The main questions are asked out of his brokenness, How can you mend a broken heart? How can you mend this broken man? How can a loser ever win?
We then hear this broken man reach out to God and say, “Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again.” He is asking for help, wholeness, and life. He desires to live again.
