Broken Engagement Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
They were standing by a window
As the night winds kissed her cheek
And he'd waited long in silence
Waited long for her to speak
Verse 2
Till at last she murmured sadly
As she raised her tearful life
With a look so full of anguish
That had filled him with surprise
Verse 3
I have promised you my darling
So that I may tell you all
Hear those vows by angels
Drifted are forever past recall
Verse 4
For they say you love another
That you never did love me
If those cruel words are true
Dear, I'll forever set you free
Verse 5
Yes, it's true he answered hostly
Through by yonder stars above
To deceive I nearly tended
When I told you of my love
Verse 6
Fare thee well, he added gently
As he sees her outstretched hands
Covered in with burning kissed
Whispering God will understand
Verse 7
God in mercy sent an angel
To relive her from all care
For he knew the way what sorrow was
Far more than she could bear
Verse 8
She was taken home to heaven
To the mansions of the bless
Where the sad heart knows no aching
And the weary are at rest
