Tommy Collins — Broken Engagement lyrics

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
Till at last she murmured sadly as she raised her tearful life
With a look so full of anguish that had filled him with surprice
I have promised you my darling so that I may tell you all
Hear those vows by angels driften are forever past recall
For they say you love another that you never did love me
If those cruel words are through dear I'll forever set you free
[ guitar ]
Yes it's true he answered hostly through by yonder stars above
To decieve I nearly tended when I told you of my love
Fare thee well he added gently as he sees her outstretched hands
Covered in with burning kissed whispering God will understand
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
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
