Howie Day – You And A Promise lyrics

She was nervous,
She was late,
She left it up to fate,
Standing at a phone.
And she knows what she wants...
And she came here to take it...
How perfect it could be, you and me.

And she met him at the door...
"I don't want you anymore..."

Remember what you said.

You and a promise.
You and a promise.

He turned and he didn't wait.
He walked right through the gate
So glad to be alone.

And he knows who to call...
"I'll always be there for you.."
"Call me anytime..."

I don't mean to offend,
The voice on the other end
Is a stranger to me.

You and a promise.
You and a promise.

And they say to themselves...
And they say to themselves...
"How could I ever let this happen?"

You and a promise.
You and a promise.
"Take me back, I let this happen."

[two, three, four...]
