The Cox Family – Broken Engagement lyrics

They were standing by the window
On the night he kissed her cheek
He had waited long in silence
Waited long for her to speak

When at last he whispered softly
As the cool breeze kissed her head
She had waited long to tell him
What they told her he had said

Oh they say you love another
That you never did love me
If these words be true my darling
I'll forever set you free

They are true he hardly answered
As the sun and stars above
When they told you my intentions
Then they told you of my love

He turned deathly pale and angry
Left her standing by the gate
Sent a message by her sister
But the message came too late

God in Heaven sent an Angel
To relieve her ache and pain
She went drifting off to Heaven
On an Angel's snow white wing

He was standing by her casket
As he looked upon her face
Then he realized he loved her
And no one could take her place
