Promises Promises

I pulled into the driveway and turned the engine off
I sat there for a moment and looked at our darkened house
Sighing to myself about another long hard day 
Wondering if its worth it as my family slips away
I make it to the kitchen to pour a glass of milk  
And right there on the fridge is a note that you had left

You waited all night long, then you finally went to sleep
Dinner is on the oven, warm it up before you eat
The list is on the counter for tomorrow and our plans
Just please don’t promise me you’ll make it, 
If you can’t I understand
I understand that you are busy, it’s ok . I’ll go alone
Please keep your broken promises unspoken from now on

Promises, promises
You’ve heard it all before
Promises, promises
They’ve shattered like thin glass
Promises, promises
Baby, I want your whole trust back

This breaking feeling in my heart makes me hang my head in pain
You’ve lived with broken promises, when did I become this man
I go into the bedroom and kneel down next to you,  
My body trembles, cuz I am scared with the fear of losing you
The dried tears upon your pillow are proof of a breaking heart
There and then I vow a promise no more tears from the lonely dark
 
Promises, promises
You’ve heard it all before
Promises, promises
They’ve shattered like thin glass
Promises, promises
Baby, I want your whole trust back

I’ll surprise you in the morning, I won’t be walking out the door
Baby, I’m making promises I won’t be breaking anymore
I promise to take you fishin’,out on the old boat, if it still floats
Or we could go hiking in the mountains,dust off the backpack
and patch the holes
Time will be on our side darling, just the two of us and the breeze
This is a lifetime promise and one I vow to forever keep

Promises, promises
You’ve heard it all before
Promises, promises
I won’t be walking out the door
Promises, promises
I won’t be breaking anymore
