Promised Myself

It’s been a bad beat baby since you took your love from me.

Nothing sweet about the sunshine in a haze of misery.

Now I know some day I’ll be alright I’ve been round this block before.

But that don’t make it any easier when she don’t want you no more.

 

Deleting your number baby won’t erase your memory.

But it will prevent that drunk-dial and a world of shame on me.

Friends take me out to ‘ladies night’ for some mischief and a beer.

But it don’t feel much like ladies night cause my lady isn’t here.

 

(Chorus)

So I promised myself for the last time I won’t be breaking this heart any more.

Said I promised myself for the last time just like I promised myself before.

Like I promised myself before.

 

Crying over old photographs aint gonna do me no good.

But don’t want to discard those sentiments although I know that I should.

They say time’s gonna be my remedy to heal this ailing heart.

But that aint no consolation cause time tore us apart.

 

(Repeat Chorus)

Promises Promises

Promises Promises

Like I promised myself before.

Promises Promises

Promises Promises

Like I promised myself before.

 

Took a few steps forward got myself back on track.

Won’t fall in love on a rebound and take ten steps back.

But this honey looking so damn fine she trying to lead my heart astray.

Still like a fool I’m holding on cause maybe you’ll come back some day.

 

(Repeat Chorus)

Promises Promises

Promises Promises

Like I promised myself before.

Promises Promises

Promises Promises

Like I promised myself before.
