Josh Groban: Broken Vow Meaning

Broken Vow Lyrics

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...

    I think this song is a final lament of a man that is about to take his life for the loss of his love. The word vow speaks of the fact that he had married his love.

    But as life can, striving to provide for his love they were forced to be apart, and in his busyness another moved in. Now they are no longer together, but he still loves her.

    He wishes he had never let her go. But he has and now he has found a way to keep more than "a broken vow" (til death do we part)

    "Why keep asking why." He will make her give "the tears she never cried" & "the touch she once promised would be mine" (a funeral)

    He has found a way to fulfill his promise. He will let her go for all eternity now that he has "found a way somehow to keep more than a broken vow"

    His vow will be fulfilled by his death.

    "I close my eyes... I close my eyes ... I close my eyes ... I give away my soul (suicide) to hold you once again and let this promise never end."

    This song speaks of a timeless universal truth - the bittersweet pain of loving.
    We would all come at a certain corner where love is just at hand, till just a chase away..till its inevitably gone.
    Mine wasnt of a broken vow, he said not word, nor had an inkling of my heart's deep seated thoughts. For nine years now, my heart has not forgotten its voluntary surrender to that certain entity (of the past) ...I saw him from a far , then after4 years -existed with him just near around ( yet he's got no clue) then were parted for nearly three years now. It was asymptotic, he was one that was so far and one who had come very near me. However, all this now to me is a drifting memory.

    I visited this site, in allusion to the pain his memory brought me. He is ( i think) into someone now. Someone I know, someone I think who deserves him.
    I wonder why do i keep pronouncing of letting him go, when in the first place he was never mine.

    May I let go of my sentiments, let go of my hope of him.


    'Tis bittersweet, but bitter exceeding the sweet.

    Yet, there's kore to life than this bitterness and lies.

    Ill just then close my eyes

    I think this song is about a man who lost the love of his life. He wants to know who took her love from him. And the vows they gave were now broken as she left him. So he says he found a way to keep somehow more than a broken vow.

    Heartbreak. Knowing your spouse found another and needing and also wondering why/trying to make sense of it all. I hear this song and it's so emotional. I have went thru this. It's torture.

    the song is about a person whom we can assume that they found their partner cheating. there was some replacement of some many things, for instance we can even say love was replaced by someone else, trust, time and memories too. so the writer wants to know who replaced him. he wants to see the person, somehow we can even say he wants to know the person he lost his partner to.

    the boy asked the girl about whose the boy he replaced.
    he loves the girl so much but, he let her go away from him. the girl go away, maybe because there's lacking in there relationship.
    letting go to the someone you loved is not easy but the boy did.
    his love to her will until to death.
