Brantley Gilbert - You Promised Lyrics

She was crying out my name

Standing in the driveway

Little bare feet wearing her cotton dress in my way

I still see the rain chasing tears down her face



It was back in October when I said it’s over and hid

Behind the door

Behind the shame of my conviction

Beside myself

Beside some empty pill prescription



Can hear her screamig' out

No baby don't, you making my heart hurt

Don’t say those words

Take it back

You know you don't mean that

You swore when I wore your ring

It meant forever

I've got it on baby

How can you say I lost it

Oh, you promised




Started crying while I was sleeping

Waking up and reaching out

To a bed as empty as the heart inside my chest

So I gathered up some pictures

Said I had some things to give her

I let her read a letter

I had written her to give her on the day we tied the knot

I saw the tears

I saw them fall as she read the part about growing old

I heard her words

I heard her say it'll never work



And I hit my knees and cried

No baby don't, you're making my heart hurt

Don’t say those words

Take it back

You know you don’t mean that

You swore when you wore my ring

It meant forever

You’ve got it on baby

How can you say you lost it

Yeah when you promised



We were different people then

Look at all the hateful things we’ve said

And I’m just as guilty

But girl that’s no way to be yeah

Take it easy baby I’m still broken

Memories enough to tear me wide open

When you see me girl you curse my name

Makes me wanna say



No, no baby don't

You’re making my heart hurt

Don’t say those words

Take it back

You know you don't mean it

You know when you wore my ring

We said forever

But you took it off baby

Safe to say we're through

No matter what you do you know I’ll always love

Well I have to

'Cause I promised
