Making promises came easy
Back when they first fell in love.
They talked of how they'd share the years together;
Said we'll work it out whatever comes.
I guess we never know just how it happens;
Vows forgotten that were once so true.
Holding on to broken dreams and promises,
It's time to act on what they said they would do.

CHORUS
'Cause when it's all said and done,
It's got to be all or none;
Words are no good unless they're backed with actions.
It's easier said than done;
Talk of the race and never run,
But the prize belongs to those who've said and done.

Love is one of many pages
In a story only time will tell;
It's a book of all the words we're saying,
Read by those who see us do as well.

(chorus)

When it's all said and done,
Have you done what you said.
When it's all said and done,
Have you done what you said you would do.

(chorus)
