"Shattered Dreams" as written by Lowell Fulsom and Ferdinand Washington....
So much for your promises
They died the day you let me go
Caught up in a web of lies
But it was just too late to know
I thought it was you
Who would stand by my side

And now you've given me, given me
Nothing but shattered dreams, shattered dreams
Feel like I could run away, run away
From this empty heart

You said you'd die for me,

Woke up to reality
And found the future not so bright
I dreamt the impossible
That maybe things could work out right
I thought it was you
Who would do me no wrong

But now you've given me, given me
Nothing but shattered dreams, shattered dreams
Feel like I could run away, run away
From this empty heart

You've given me, given me
Nothing but shattered dreams, shattered dreams
Feel like I could run away, run away
From this empty heart

From this empty heart
I thought it was you who said they'd die for love

And now you've given me, given me
Nothing but shattered dreams, shattered dreams
Feel like I could run away, run away
From this empty heart

You've given me, given me
Nothing but shattered dreams, shattered dreams
Feel like I could run away, run away
From this empty heart

Oh no no no you said you'd die for me
Oh oh die for me
So much for your promises

    General CommentThis song is awesome. Self explantory. She broke up with him and he's left with nothing but regret and pain.

    General CommentI think this song is about a very painful breakup with someone who broke her promise to stand by her man through thick and thin and he is mourning the end of the relationship.
