Broken promises are all I have...

by Ash

BROKEN PROMISES...

Broken promises are all I have,
lost in a place where temptation never fades.
Yeah, I always thought you'd be true,
but every time I just felt like a fool.

It wasn't the distance that made my heart ache,
it wasn't even what you said that made me break,
It wasn't even your actions that contradicted yourself,
It was beyond what I could explain myself...

Lost in a whisper of words so sweet,
this anonymous life once seemed so complete.
Dashed to pieces, but thrown against the wall,
who would've guessed how hard would be the fall.

Yeah, I'm kicking myself for the mistakes I made,
thinking back in the past that just never fades.
Yeah, I'm reliving my worst memories everyday,
hoping you'll show up again and say you do care.

But those three words just echo in my mind,
it's a door that remains open whenever I look behind.
"I love you" is what you had to say,
and you disappeared the very next day.

I looked high and low for you,
hoping to find some kind of clue.
But you were nowhere to be found,
not even tiny memories wherein to surround.

Broken pieces can never mend,
the mistakes once made can never amend.
It's the face of people that's so hard to read,
it's desperation of life that leaves one in need.

Broken promises are all I have,
lost in a place where temptation never fades.
Yeah, I always thought you'd be true,
but every time I just felt like a fool.
