I Know I Promised You

Rating: 3.5

I Know I Promised You
I know I promised you
If the day came I'd let you go.
You asked me and I promised
I promised this I know.

I wouldn't beg and plea
to give us one more chance.
I'd simply let you go
if ever you came and asked.

I never thought this day would come
and I'd be here to say good-bye.
Leaving my heart shattered
is the truth I will not lie.

This promise brings a darkness
a loneliness so black.
dying a little more each day
wishing I could go back.

I know I promised I'd say good-bye
if ever you chose to ask.
But here you are
and I don't know how.
I want to scream
COME BACK! !

My friend please forgive me
for not being good enough.
For failing to be the one you need
undeserving of your love.

For making you unhappy
for failing as your wife.
This isn't what I wanted to be
or what I wanted for our life.

So I'll do the best I can
I'll give it what I have left.
Good-bye my love I let you go
I wish you all the best.
