First and foremost, grab a box of tissues, because you'll be needing them. Although Brantley Gilbert is known for his tough guy, bad boy image, he can sing a song a song that is anything but.

He can sing something that'll make you fall in love, or, like "You Promised", he can sing something that'll make you want to fall to you knees and try to grab hold of your loved ones and never let them go.

A song full of regrets, "You Promised" was never released on any of Brantley's albums. It tells the story of a man that left behind his wife even though she was screaming for him to stay. Full of longing, he returns to her, asking for her forgiveness and to take him back. "Can hear her screamin' now / No baby don't, you making my heart hurt / Don't say those words / Take it back / You know you don't mean that / You swore when I wore your ring / It meant forever / I've got it on baby / How can you say I lost it / Oh, you promised." But really, folks, how heartbreaking is that? Brantley sure knows how to write a song, that much we know for sure.

Brantley's low, slow, and gritty voice really makes this song the phenomenon that it is. He paints such a vivid picture of the heart-wrenching scene. It's almost as if you're there, experiencing the woman's tears and sadness as her love leaves her behind.

Y'all just have to listen to see what we mean. You won't be sorry.

YOU PROMISED LYRICS

She was crying out my name
Standing in the driveway
Little bare feet wearing her cotton dress in my way
I still see the rain chasing tears down her face

It was back in October when I said it's over and hid
Behind the door
Behind the shame of my conviction
Beside myself
Beside some empty pill prescription

Can hear her screamin' now
No baby don't, you making my heart hurt
Don't say those words
Take it back
You know you don't mean that
You swore when I wore your ring
It meant forever
I've got it on baby
How can you say I lost it
Oh, you promised

Started crying while I was sleeping
Waking up and reaching out
To a bed as empty as the heart inside my chest
So I gathered up some pictures
Said I had some things to give her
I let her read a letter
I had written her to give her on the day we tied the knot
I saw the tears
I saw them fall as she read the part of my growing old
I heard her words
I heard her say it'll never work

And hit my knees and cried
No baby don't you're making my heart hurt
Don't say those words
Take it back
You know you don't mean that
You swore when you wore my ring
It meant forever
You've got it on baby
How can you say you lost it
Yeah and you promised

We were different people then
Look at all the hateful things we've said
And I'm just as guilty
But girl that's no way to be
Take it easy baby I'm still broken
Memories enough to tear me wide open
When you see me girl you curse my name
Makes me wanna say

No, no baby don't
You're making my heart hurt
Don't say those words
Take it back
You know you don't mean that
You know when you wore my ring
We said forever
But you took it off baby
Safe to say we're through
No matter what you do
You know I'll always love you
Well I have to
'Cause I promised
