I want to promise you forever
Promise to love you all my life
Promise that our love will never end
that we will grow old together
and I'll still have that sparkle
every time I gaze into your eyes

I'd love to promise you the world
Promise that I will devote my life
to just seeing your smile
and I will never stop trying
to please you in anyway I can
because you'll always be in my heart

I wish I could promise you so many things
All the things that your first love should promise
I wish I could leave you with dreams of forever
but I don't want to promise
because I've seen it all before
and these sacred promises are too easily broken

Lies easily begin to slip out of your mouth
as they become a habit
and hearts are too easily shattered
with simple words
and your life can become worthless
with a broken promise
