It's the chances that you take
With the promises you make

Only Words

Only Words By: Mike Mezz

I Promise to be faithful My words are always true My eyes will never wander These vows I swear to you

I will never hurt your heart That's something I'll never do Nothing will tear us apart I'll never want someone new

It's the chances that you take With the promises you make

Then actions cloud the way As those promises you break

The reasons unexplained And the excuses that you say

You attempt to shift the blame But the words get in the way

The grass isn't always greener It may look like it at times Your pledges and demeanor Were all your words a lie?

Don't tell me over text Confess it to my face You can wade into my wreck You can try to plead your case

The words get in the way You attempt to shift the blame

All the excuses that you say Reasons unexplained

With the promises you make It's the chances that you take

As those promises you break Your words get in the way

So now here you are Standing at my door Begging for forgiveness I don't trust you anymore

You were caught in a lie I can't count on your words I see through your disguise Greener grass was only dirt

The excuses that you make Reasons you can't explain

You attempt to shift the blame From those promises you break

Your lies will never change Your choices paved the way

All the actions that you take Are the words you have to say
