“I Am Trying to Break Your Heart” is originally a Wilco Song, from the Band’s 2002 Album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Jeff Tweedy, the lead-singer, and bandleader of Wilco covered his Wilco Song as a solo Artist on 2017 Album, Together At Last.
Together at Last is the first solo album by Jeff Tweedy. It marked the first release of a proposed retrospective series titled Loft Acoustic Sessions that plans to have Tweedy revisiting songs from Wilco’s catalog, as well as from his Golden Smog and Loose Fur side projects. (from Wikipedia)

from the Album, Together At Last (2017)
“I am an American aquarium drinker.
I assassin down the avenue.
I’m hiding out in the big city blinking.
What was I thinking when I let go of you?”
Wilco immediately reminds me of Chicago which immediately reminds me of my two tries of living in the Windy City, both failures, and both full of bittersweet memories. My heart broke in Chicago, as did two other people’s, I do believe.
The Song “I Am Trying to Break Your Heart” was also the title of the Wilco documentary by Sam Jones, released in 2002. It follows the Band through the creation and distribution of their fourth Studio Album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, which the Song “I Am Trying to Break Your Heart” is from. (from Wikipedia)
In the documentary, Nonesuch Records executive David Bither was excited about Yankee Hotel Foxtrot after hearing the first 30 seconds of “I Am Trying to Break Your Heart.”
