Looks Like A-Rod Posted A Cryptic Message Just Before He And Jennifer Lopez Broke Up

Of all the songs in all the world, “Fix You” isn’t exactly the one I’d choose in the happiest of moments. Sample lyrics in that Chris Martin track are: “And the tears come streaming down your face/When you lose something, you can’t replace/When you love someone, but it goes to waste/Could it be worse?” If that wasn’t a giant hint that the news was coming I don’t know what would be.
