When Did Those Promises Turn Into Lies

When I was young, from everyone

I got the same old dream

Stand by your man, try hard as you can

And you’ll be his everything


To have, hold, love til you die

When did those promises turn into lies

I stayed for the kids, the dreams we once had

Found all the blame in myself

Compromised, gave up my mind

And he finds him somebody else



I could cry when I look at my life

Years and years lost time

Years and years of sacrifice

Learning to be blind


I saw through the pain he never would change

I thought I would crumble away

I used to pretend, but never again

Never would be the same
