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

I'm the ballgame 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
That they don't matter quite enough 
There's no stoppin' me once I'm in motion 
I'm a promise broken

Disappointment, disillusion 
Despair, confusion 
I've seen it all in their eyes
Don't promise you will if you won't
Don't say you do if you don't
Its alright to say you'll try

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