I made myself a promise I knew I couldn't keep
I promised me I wouldn't cry tonight before I sleep
But to think of how you've hurt me and it's more than I can take
Now I know that promises and hearts were made to break and break and break
Oh promises and hearts were made to break
Promises and hearts were made to be broken
But surely not mine at least I was a hopin'
But a hurtin' heart is something I can't learn to face
Now I see that promises and hearts were made to break and break and break
Oh promises and hearts were made to break
[ ac.guitar ]
I promised all of my neighbors no more crying late at night
I promised them I'd go to sleep things are gonna be alright
Then once again it's mem'ry time and my heart begins to ache
Now they know that promises and hearts were made to break and break and break
Oh promises and hearts were made to break
