"Broken Vow" as written by Paul Michael Barry and Mark Taylor....
Tell me his name
I want to know
The way he looks
And where you go
I need to see his face
I need to understand
Why you and I came to an end

Tell me again
I want to hear
Who broke my faith in all these years
Who lays with you at night
When I'm here all alone
Remembering when I was your own

I'll let you go
I'll let you fly
Why do I keep on asking why
I'll let you go
Now that I found
A way to keep somehow
More than a broken vow

Tell me the words I never said
Show me the tears you never shed
Give me the touch
That one you promised to be mine
Or has it vanished for all time

I'll let you go
I'll let you fly
Why do I keep on asking why
I'll let you go
Now that I found
A way to keep somehow
More than a broken vow

I close my eyes
And dream of you and I
And then I realize
There's more to life than only bitterness and lies
I close my eyes

I'd give away my soul
To hold you once again
And never let this promise end

I'll let you go
I'll let you fly
Why do I keep on asking why
I'll let you go
Now that I found
A way to keep somehow
More than a broken vow

    General CommentI can see my ex-boyfriend singing this song to me after we broke up. He was readying for boot camp, so wasn't around for about a month. It was then that I met the guy that I'm now married to. But we're still good friends.

    General CommentOh man DiabiLuMiNaDa thats the exact same thing i did! It happened before I met my boyfriend and there was a friend i was in love with for so long. When i finally confessed to him he was sad to say that he loved his friend who just moved away and took his heart with her.
    I was so downtrodden, and this son g related to me so much it was amazing.

    General CommentThis song makes me cry like a baby. It's really straightforward in terms of meaning if you listen, but even if that isn't exactly what happens, it's still really sad. I'm afraid to listen to it, because almost everything is making me cry.

    General CommentI co-worker of mine told me a story about this song. She is almost 60, and I, 19. Her husband had cheated on her once and this song helped her to realize that it is not worth throwing away all the happiness she had because of this wrong doing. She said she would listen to this song wondering all the same things and how her marriage could end because of one thing.

    It's very powerful when you think about it that way... I was really touched. If only I could have said it in her words.

    General CommentIn 2005 the woman I had been married to for 10 months left me for another man. It took almost a year before I was truly over her. Six months after she left I met a very dear friend, we actually went on two dates before we decided friends is more what we wanted. As Christians, we shared many spiritual things in our lives. One day, when I was feeling down, we were emailing each other during the day, she sent me the lyrics to this song. I went home and downloaded it and listened to it for over an hour, crying the whole time. It fit so well into what I was going through.

    I kept on asking why
    I didn't why she had broke her vow

    Every single line expressed exactly how I was feeling.

    I am over her now, but this song still brings tears to my eyes. I love songs with passion, so much passion.
