India Arie - Promises



Tekst piosenki:

When I think about the turn my life has taken
  I know it's because of you, that I receive 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 and you came
  And 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
  
  [Chorus]
  A promise, is 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 deny, there's no way
  
  I think of when there was a young boy, not even two years old
  Blessed with a mother who 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 and she prayed
  And she did, just what she say, for that he'll love her forever
  She kept her word to him, for that he'll love her forever
  
  [Chorus]
  A promise is 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 deny, there'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 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
  
  [Chorus]
  A promise is 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 deny, there's no way
  No way, there ain't no way
  A man's only as good as his word
