"Life is a broken promise."
A promise made, a promise broken
I made that promise not so very long ago,
I made a promise that said I wouldn't leave, that I wouldn't go.
I made that promise not so very long ago
I made a promise to ease your pain, to quell your worry.
I made a promise I shouldn't have made.
I promised you something I shouldn't have promised.
A promise that I made not so long ago,
Will soon be a promise broken.
I'm sorry but it wasn't mine to pledge
A promise made, a promise broken.
