"This Is How a Heart Breaks" was released in June 2005 as the second single from Matchbox Twenty frontman Rob Thomas's debut album, …Something to Be. The song was moderately successful on the charts, peaking at number 52 in the United States and number 13 in Australia, it was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America for selling over 500,000 copies, in 2006 it was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rock Vocal Performance, Solo. The video, directed by Pedro Romhanyi, starts off with images of New York City Thomas singing as he walks along the street, he sees someone and runs away, chased by that person through the New York streets. On, Thomas escapes from the chaser and sings a few lines while walking along another part of the street. Just as he finishes his lines, the chaser catches up to Thomas again and he runs through a bar and jumps out a window in the bar. Thomas loses the chaser and goes into an elevator in a building. Once he leaves, he runs up the stairs to the fire exit and when gets to the roof top he sings some lines sees the chaser chasing him again.
As the chase continues Thomas tries to climb down a fire escape only to fall into trash. Thomas runs on top of some parked cars only to run into a fence which he can't climb. Thomas gets cornered and finds himself face to face with the chaser; as the video ends we get a quick glimpse of the chaser's face and it is in fact himself, Rob Thomas.
