India Arie - Promises Lyrics



When I think about the turn my life has taken
I know it's because of youthat I receive so many blessings
I had a home but no privacyI didn't know a thing about my legacy
When I realized you were there for meI called on your name and you came
And you didjust what you saidfor that I'll love you forever
You keptyour word to mefor that I'll love you forever

Chorus
A promiseis a promise in my eyes
Can't say you're gonna just to compromise
The very thing that keeps two hearts intertwined
A promise is a promise you can't denythere's no way

I think of when there was a young boynot even two years old
Blessed with a mother who loved him soshe abandoned her dreams to nourish his
Own
It wasn't easy for the two of thembut she knew she had to give him a chance
At a better lifeit was only rightso she worked and she prayed
And she didjust what she saidfor that he'll love her forever
She kept her word to himfor that he'll love her forever

Chorus
A promise is a promisein my eyes
Can't say you're gonna just to compromise
The very thing that keeps two hearts intertwined
A promise is a promise you can't denythere's no way
A man's only as good as his word

[instrumental break]

Her wedding day and she's thinking ¡®bout the way he won her affection
She was so cynical about love ¡®cause she didn't want to be heart broken again
He looked her in her eye with sinceritysaid 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 didjust what he saidfor that she'll love him forever
He kept his word to herfor that she'll love him forever

Chorus:
A promise is a promisein my eyes
Can't say you're gonna just to compromise
The very thing that keeps two hearts intertwined
A promise is a promise you can't denythere's no way
No waynothere ain't no way
A man's only as good as his word
