Broken Promises

We’re just five past hello then you blow it there goes… one more lie

And I fall right in take a swim, pretend… to be blind

But you’re foolin us both you know you won’t… compromise

Well I’ve turned both cheeks, gotta stop repeatin’… redefine

 

You say that you love me… but you don’t

Never gave us one honest shot… and you won’t

I said I’d forgive you and I’ve tried

Forgetting the wreck… that you left inside…

 

But I can’t forget…

And forgiveness has yet…

To come to the forefront

Of my thought process cause your

 

Broken Promises…

Keep on screamin in my head

Empty words said to me never meant anything

They won’t go away

All your broken promises…

Each another toxic thread

Spun in your web of lies keeping me paralyzed

Played and then replayed

 

I’ve got dreams… dreams to remember…

But all those dreams… all those dreams… must be surrendered

A tailspin of denial, A vortex of lies took me down, down, down…

And I don’t know why, I couldn’t just let you drown

 

Defied fear, showed you all of me

And you exploited and tossed it away all that I let you see

No more… You and Me… No more fantasies…

No more sayin’ em together just to hear the sound of KKB

No us no we… half way Tennessee

There will never be another “maybe just maybe…”

 

Cause I can’t forget…

And forgiveness has yet…

To come to the forefront

Of my thought process cause your

 

Broken Promises…

Ring like gun shots in my head

Empty words said to me never meant anything

They won’t go away

All your broken promises…

Each another toxic thread

Spun in your web of lies keeping me paralyzed

Played and then replayed
