Deric Ruttan – Promise Broken lyrics

I'm out here everyday
Breakin' hearts along the way
I cause tears to fall and some to lose it all
This whole world would be
Better off without me
I'm the saddest words you've spoken
I'm a promise broken

I'm the ball game that you missed
I'm the calls that don't come in
I'm every poor excuse
You use to cover up the truth
I tell the people that you love
They don't matter quite enough
There's no stopping me once I'm in motion
I'm a promise broken

Disappointment, disallusion, despair, confusion
I've seen it all in their eyes
Don't promise you will if you won't
Don't say you do when you don't
It's okay to say you'll try

I get pushed aside
When you move on with your life
But I stand the test of time
In your heart and in your mind
You'll think about me now and then
Wonderin' how your life might have been
But I will leave you never knowin'
I'm a promise broken

I'm a promise broken
