One Promise Too Late Lyrics

Artist: Reba McEntire
Album: Greatest Hits

(Dave Loggins, Lisa Silver, Don Schlitz)

I would have waited forever
If I'd known that you'd be here
We could have shared our lives together
And held each other close all through the years
But I've met someone before you
And my heart just couldn't wait
So no matter how much I adore you
I've got to stand behind the promise that I made

Chorus:
Where were you
When I could have loved you
Where were you
When I gave my heart away
All my life I've been dreaming of you
You came along one promise too late
You came along one promise too late

I won't say that I'm sorry that I met you
I can't have you but I never will forget you

Repeat Chorus x2

Its amazing when a song can make such a point with 1 verse, 1 chorus, and 1 bridge!! I hope to write a song this poignant one day.

I absolutely love everything that Reba has done throughout her wonderful career. There is not a song of hers that I don't know the entire lyrics of =)

this song fits my situation perfectly. maybe I'm not such a terrible person after all - at least I'm not the only one.

This song was sang to me many times by a man I thought I knew. Guess he didn't love me as much as I thought or he would have been with me. Great song! Still love it!

My baby made me listen to this.... will she ever be my baby? Will i ever hold her heart? Can i steal her from her unhappy promise she made?
