India Arie - Promises

 

 



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
