"Broken Promises" as written by Loick Mark Essien, Jermaine Sinclaire Scott, T Mah,, Konan, and Krept,....
The day you left me
There was a feeling I have never shown
The day you told me
There were the words that I have never known
And now it's over
So what's left that I should ever feel
Cause since the day you left me I have been so alone

And now we're left with broken promises
My heart can't take no more
And now we're left with broken promises
My mind has had enough

Deep inside me
There are things that I have never told
They burn inside me
And now I need to know
Why are you trying to take everything away from me
Well I'm begging you
I'm here with nothing left to show
'Cause since the day you left me I have been so alone

And now we're left with broken promises
My heart can't take no more
And now we're left with broken promises
My mind has had enough

Look at how you turned on me
You ran away and left me here with nothing to see
I'm a man so turn around and say it to me
Don't you think I've got something to say

Look at how you turned on me
You ran away and left me here with nothing to see
I'm a man so turn around and say it to me
Don't you think I've got something to say

Now look at how you turned on me
You ran away and left me here with nothing to see
I'm a man so turn around and say it to me
Don't you think I've got something to say

And now we're left with broken promises
My heart can't take no more
And now we're left with broken promises
My mind has had enough

And now we're left with broken promises
My heart can't take no more
And now we're left with broken promises
My mind has had enough

    General CommentI think the song's about the singer's first true love. It sounds like she left him completely heart broken and he's "never been so alone" before.
    Looks like they had the whole "commitment" thing going on "and now i'm left with broken promises".
    They vowed for forever and she took that away from him and all he does is hurt over it but he's saying that he can't handle the pain anymore, so he's going to move on.

    General Commentthis song is great... maybe about when his first love left him and for the first time he was alone.. and it keeps tearing him apart whenever he sees his EX-GF..

    General CommentMy ex girlfriend broke up with me to be with another guy. A few months later she came back to me. I took the bait and accepted her back.. well a few days later she says she still has feelings for the other guy. We went through the same cycle again even after she told me she knew she really wanted me this time. I've had it with this bullshit and these broken promises.

    My InterpretationCould this be about a broken marriage? I know most seem to think it is about simply a loved one leaving him, but consider that when you wed you make a promise to each other (your vows). Obviously the narrator had strong emotions for their partner (again which suggests may have been more than simply a crush / girlfriend) and that by them leaving him they have "broken promises" to be together for each other.
