[Q:]
You promised me that you would love.
You promised me that you would stay.
You promised me that you would take my heart and never give away.
You promised me that you would never cheat.
You promised me that you would never change.
You promised me you'll never leave.
Promises you never kept.

[X2:]
But every promise that're broken (Ooh, I do)
Right before it could ever reach me (What am I gonna do)
You never were there to give me (Got to please you)
The lies you made me believe in.

[X2:]
These are, reasons why I left.
You never should've gave me broken promises.
Broken promises, broken promises, broken promises.

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

[Dawn:]
But every promise that's been broken (Ooh, I do)
Right before it ever reaches me (What am I gonna do)
You never were there to give me (Got to please you)
The lies you made me believe in.

[Q:]
But every promise that're broken (Ooh, I do)
Right before it could ever reach me (What am I gonna do)
You never were there to give me (Got to please you)
The lies you made me believe in.

[X2:]
These are, reasons why I left.
You never should've gave me broken promises.
Broken promises, broken promises, broken promises.

[Dawn:]
How could you do this to me after I gave you all of me.
(The promise I made to you, and you left me alone)

[Q:]
After I gave you my heart (Gave you my heart)
You weren't there from the start.

[Dawn & Q:]
We'll go our own ways and I'll be okay.

(Oh na na na na na na)
(Oh na na na na na na)
(Oh na na na na na na)

[X2:]
These are, reasons why I left.
You never should've gave me broken promises.
Broken promises, broken promises, broken promises.

(You never should've gave me)

(Ooh)
