Story

Recorded on Jeff's 8-track.

 

Jeff: This song started life as "You Suck," a silly song from FFN past.  Dave made a suggestion to revisit some of our silly songs and try to rework them into something more serious.  This is the result.

 

Lyrics

Broken Promise

 

I've been tryin' all night to get you outta my head

And stop thinkin' about the words that you said

You don't love me no more...no more

It was "We have each other, and babe...that's enough

There's nothin' in this world that'll break our love"

Then you walked out the door...the door

 

And that's one broken promise too much

That's one broken promise too much

 

You got the whole town talkin' about you

And the way that you took flight

It was without warning...not a single clue

You're just another thief in the night

And that ain't right

 

Well, I thought I had it figured out

Thought I knew what you were all about

But you threw it away...away

We took another chance and went another round

I turned to look, and you were not to be found

Though I begged you to stay...to stay

 

And that's one broken promise too much

That's one broken promise too much

 

We all have our faults...I know I got mine

But I've heard that wounds heal better with time

There's nothin' so bad that we can't work it out

But you say that it's too late now

It's too late now...

 

And that's one broken promise too much

That's one broken promise too much

 

I've been tryin' all night to get you outta my head

And stop thinkin' about the words that you said

You don't love me no more...no more
