Randy Travis – Promises lyrics

(Randy Travis/John Lindley)

Cheap perfume
And painted faces,
Fallen angles fill the places
Where I go
When my troubles pull me down
And all the lies
I know they'll tell me,
And the time that they will sell me
For a while
I'll be the biggest man in town
Back at home
In bed she's crying,
For her love for me is dying
But she'll pray
I make it safely through the night
When the mornin' sun starts showing,
To her bedside
I'll be going
And she'll hold me
While I face the morning light

And I'll make promises
Promises to change
I'll make her promises
Swear I'll rearrange
And I'll start giving
All the love she needs if only she will stay
Once again she'll reassure me
And I believe her love will cure me
And I'll fall asleep
With tears on my face
And I know
She's just a woman
And her love can't last forever
And someday soon
I know she'll leave without a trace
For broken' promises
Will tear her dreams apart just token promises
Will someday break her heart
And for the last time
She'll hold me when I cry and while I'm sleeping
She'll quietly say
