I'm a man of my word, I mean what I say
My pledge is my bond, that's just my way
When you've made a promise, to someone who's gone
Well that's when forever seems a little too long
I'm a man of my word, I made you a vow
I swore that I'd love you, I can't change that now
They tell my I'm free to find someone new
But I just don't have the heart
Cause I gave mine to you
When I said my love would last for all time,
And no-one could take your place
Well If that promise was that last sound you heard
Well you know I kept it, I'm a man of my word
I'm a man of my word, and it's cost me so dear
Cause those words are a prison, without you here
And I'll go to my grave, with this torch held high
But just once I wish, I told you a lie
Yes I'll always love you, I'm a man of my word
