Sing-A-Song

I broke a promise to myself
I knew I would
Along with my phone, wine glass and heel
I broke a promise to myself
I knew I would

And you must’ve, too
Because you’re not surprised
(You knew I would)
(You knew I would)
(You wanted me to, I think)

I heard you say, here she goes again
And I know, you knew
I’d take it as a challenge
So there I went again
(I always do)
(You knew I would)
(You wanted to me to, I think)

Another whiskey, please
I’m so bold (I think)
Some more banter
I’m so witty, I’m so clever
The lights come on
But this one-woman show
You know, is still roaring to go
Because it always is

And that’s when…

I broke a promise to myself
I knew I would
Along with my phone, wine glass and heel
I broke a promise to myself
I knew I would

And you must’ve, too
Because you’re not surprised
(You knew I would)
(You knew I would)
(You wanted me to, I think)

I wake up next to you
Desperately try to find my keys
You turn and laugh
Spinning them around, you want these?
I do (You know I do)

How’d I end up here again?
I swore I wouldn’t but…
(You knew I would)
(You knew I would)
(You wanted me to, I think)

You always
Always, get what you want
I just wish
Just wish, it wasn’t me
Because I can’t do this anymore
(You know, I know, I will)
(I know, you know, I will)
But even still…

I broke a promise to myself (again)
(Again) I broke a promise to myself
I broke a promise to myself (again)
(Again) I broke a promise to myself
(You knew I would)
(You wanted me to, I think)

***

You never believed in me
You just said you did
But you kept me quiet
You kept me locked away
And I tried so hard
To get out
But I couldn’t

I can still hear you say
“Are you sure you want to do that?”
“Is it really worth your time?”
“My schedule is pretty tight and I know
you wouldn’t want to disrupt it, right?”
“Let’s talk about it some other night.”

I used to think
I could do anything
I set my mind to
But now, I question
If I can do anything
Right

I just wanted you
To say
To believe in you
I just wanted you
To say
It’s going to be alright
But you didn’t

You just couldn’t
And I’ll always wonder why

You never believed in me

***

I had a dream of you the other day
I had a dream of you the other day
This is where I see you now
This is where I go
To remember

The late nights singing
Getting to know each other
But I never let you in
And I wonder still
About everything

(Everything) we never were
(Everything) we could have been
I see you next to her (smiling)
I close my eyes, to dream

Because I had a dream of you the other day
I had a dream of you the other day
This is where I see you now
This is where I go
To remember

You smiling at me
Yeah, we drove with the windows down
The music up and we sang so loudly
Out of key, you’d look back at me
I’d look up at you and think
This could be perfect

It was
But I didn’t see

(Everything) we never were
(Everything) we could have been
But now, I see you next to her (smiling)
I close my eyes, to dream

You didn’t try to change me
No, you just wanted to be there for me
I fell down the rabbit hole
And I left you all alone
I made a mockery of myself
You went on to find someone else
And my gosh, she’s beautiful
(She’s beautiful)
(More beautiful than me)

Still, I miss you when I visit our ever-after in my dreams

I had a dream of you the other day
I had a dream of you the other day
This is where I see you now
This is where I go
To remember

(Everything) we never were
(Everything) we could have been
I see you next to her (smiling)
I close my eyes, to dream
