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
