Hollow Promises

Written by: Richard Lamoureux

When a boy, I was forced to be a man
To large a task, for someone so small
Still when there is love, you do all you can

A minature adult, not very tall
Doing the job, that I was forced to do
To large a task, for someone so small

Happy memories, there were very few
Life was far from easy, trapped in that place
Doing the job that I was forced to do

All of the sadness, I wish I could erase
Won't give me back the days, the childhood lost
Life was far from easy, trapped in that place

You stole my laughter, forced me to pay the cost
All the hollow promises that you made
Won't give me back the days, the childhood lost


Time to forgive, in the ground you are laid
With the hollow promises you made
When a boy I was forced to be a man
still when there is love, you do all you can
