"Broken Strings" is the third single by James Morrison from his second studio album Songs for You, Truths for Me, and was released in December 2008. The song is a duet with Canadian singer-songwriter Nelly Furtado. The single became Morrison's most successful single to date, peaking in the top ten on many European charts, in the top three in the UK and Ireland and topped the charts in Germany and Switzerland.

Famous quotes containing the words strings and/or broken:
“A culture may be conceived as a network of beliefs and purposes in which any string in the net pulls and is pulled by the others, thus perpetually changing the configuration of the whole. If the cultural element called morals takes on a new shape, we must ask what other strings have pulled it out of line. It cannot be one solitary string, nor even the strings nearby, for the network is three-dimensional at least.”
—Jacques Barzun (b. 1907)
“He told me that the Indians were nearly all gone to the sea-board and to Massachusetts, partly on account of the smallpoxof which they are very much afraidhaving broken out in Oldtown.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
