Allan, Gary - Promise Broken Lyrics

I'm out here everyday breakin hearts along the way
I cause tears to fall and some to lose it all
This whole world would be
Better off without me
Well, I'm the saddest words you've spoken
I'm a promise broken

I'm the ballgame that you missed
I'm the calls that don't come in
I'm every poor excuse you use to cover up the truth
I tell the people that you love
That they don't matter quite enough
There's no stopping me once I'm in motion
I'm a promise broken

Disappointment, disillusion
Despair, confusion
I've seen it all in their eyes
Don't promise you will if you want
Don't say you do if you don't
It's alright to say you'll try

Well, I get pushed aside when you move on with your life
But I'll stand the test of time in your heart and in your mind
You'll think about me now and then
Wonder how your life might've been
But I will leave you never knowin
Well, I'm a promise broken
I'm a promise broken

  10. Vicki Jones

    love this man as a person and artist. He was going to get his wife a soda after lying down with her and trying to comfort her. She choose to take her own life at that time. Very sad but he loved her so much.

  13. Tera Frisk

    He's a great singer, but a real loser as a man. The best thing he ever had, He killed..... Angie died because of him. She pulled the trigger because he was a bad husband and she felt death was the only way out for her... Sad! real fucking sad Gary!

    john cox

    @Tera Frisk when someone kills themselves's their own fault and no one elses , millions of people live shitty lives with shitty people and don't kill themselves , to blame suicide on any body but the person that committed it is stupid

    Caleb Rowe

    She had a migraine and couldn't take it and shot herself without thinking he was rushing thru pain pills for her as she did it

    Tracy Andrews

    You've got a lot of guts to trash people on the internet without facts don't you sweetie?

    Susan Edwards

    How can anyone judge that, so darn offensive as a person that has fought depression for years.... one can have the best person standing by them and still not beat it. I believe I said elsewhere on here under a stupid ass comment like that..,.. I believe this song is the voice of depression. Do some research. That was an ignorant thing to say.

  14. Buddy William KKurtiss LOGDEN ogden jr

    Leave y'all with the best country artist today !

  15. Charlie Crews

    The way I feel right now I wish I could make them all unbroken......

    Gary is a real inspiration as a man. He's been through a hell of a lot, and he's come through all of it a better person.
