Feat. Qwanell Mosley

Qwanell:
[Verse 1:]
You promised me that you would love
You promised me that you would stay
You promised me that you would take my heart
& Never give it away
You promised me that you'll never cheat
You promised me that you'll never change
You promised me that you'll never leave
Promises you never kept

[Pre Chorus:][x2]
But every promise that were broken
Right before it could ever reach me[what am I gonna do?]
You never were there to give me[can you tell me the truth?]
The lies you made me believe in

[Chorus:][x2]
These are the reasons why I left
You never should've gave me broken promises
Broken...
Promises...
Broken...
Promises...
Broken...
Promises...
Broken...
Promises...

Dawn:
[Verse 2:]
You promised you'd see more of me
Open up your eyes and see what we could be
You promised me that it was just me
A promised that you couldn't keep
You promised that she was just a friend
A promise I found in my bed
A promise that made me weak
Promises that you never keep

Dawn & Que:
[Pre Chorus:][x2]
But every promise that were broken
Right before it could ever reach me[what am I gonna do?]
You never were there to give me[can you tell me the truth?]
The lies you made me believe in

Qwanell:
[Chorus:][x2]
These are the reasons why I left
You never should've gave me broken promises
Broken...
Promises...
Broken...
Promises...
Broken...
Promises...
Broken...
Promises...

Dawn & Que
[Verse 3:]
How could you do this to me?
After I gave you all of me...
After I gave you my heart
You weren't there from the start
We'll go our seperate ways
& I'll be ok

Ooohh na na na na na na [x3]

I'll be ok

[Chorus:][x4][Both Ad-Libbing]
These are the reasons why I left
You never should've gave me broken promises
Broken...
Promises...
Broken...
Promises...
Broken...
Promises...
Broken...
Promises...

Qwanell & Dawn:
Oooooooh...
