Broken Promises Lyrics

by Willie Nelson

I made myself a promise, the day you put me down
That I wouldn't see you if you came around
But here you are within my arms, the way you used to be
And I broke the promise that I made to me

They told me you were at a dance as I prepared to go
I made myself a promise that I'd only say hello
I knew you'd only hurt me but it's such sweet misery
So I broke the promise that I made to me

A broken promise always means someone will surely cry
And I know who that someone's bound to be
And tomorrow I'll be sorry that I told myself a lie
And broke the promise that I made to me

A broken promise always means someone will surely cry
And I know who that someone's bound to be
And tomorrow I'll be sorry that I told myself a lie
And broke the promise that I made to me
