You Promised Lyrics

She was cryin' out my name
Standin' in the driveway
Little bare feet, wearin' 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

I 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
And 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 sleepin'
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 about 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.
And 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, Yeah
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
And you know when you wore my ring
We said forever
But you took it off baby
Safe to say we’re through
But no matter what you do you know I’ll always love you,
Well I have to
‘Cause I promised

I hang on to that promise he made to me. My boyfriend and i are going through a rough patch. He has said things that make me think how he viewed me has changed but we promised we'd together forever and always.
