my lyricsbox
When i think about the turn my life has taken
i know it's because of you that i recieve so many blessings
i had a home but no privacy
i didn't know a thing about my legacy
when i realized you were there for me,
i called on your name, you came,
you did just what you said
for that i'll love you forever
you kept your word to me
for that i'll love you forever

A promise is a promise
in my eyes
can't say your gonna just to compromise
the very thing that keeps two hearts intertwined
a promise is a promise, you can't deny
there's no way

I think of when there was a young boy
not even two years old
blessed with a mother that loved him so
she abandoned her dreams to nourish his own
it wasn't easy for the two of them
but she knew she had to give him a chance
at a better life
it was only right
so she worked, she prayed,
she did just what she said
for that he'll love her forever
she kept her word to him
For that he'll love her forever.

A promise is a promise
in my eyes
can't say your gonna just to compromise
the very thing that keeps two hearts intertwined
a promise is a promise, you can't deny
there's no way

A man's only as good as his word

Her wedding day and she's thinking about
the way he wanted her affection
She was so cynical about love
'cuz she didn't want to be heartbroken again
he looked her in her eye with sincerity
Said he only wanted to protect her
so she took a chance on him
and she's glad she did
because he came for real
and he did just what he said
for that she'll love him forever
he kept his word to her
for that she'll love him forever

A promise is a promise
in my eyes
can't say your gonna just to compromise
the very thing that keeps two hearts intertwined
a promise is a promise, you can't deny
there's no way

A man's only as good as his word
This song is from the album "Acoustic Soul".
