I remember…the first time
My tear stained shoulder met your blood shot eyes
Bleeding alibis
You said, “put yourself in my shoes”
And what did I have to lose…, but time
Just to find
What I could never do to you

I refuse to turn a blind eye
To the truth
Another hatchet in the ground’s
Another lie to lose
Cuz when grass grows green
over all the tombs
Of promises you made
I’ll dig too deep find the rusted parts
And I’ll bury this damn hatchet in your heart

So here I am a digging through the dirt and the hurt
Filling in the holes and putting in the work, for you my dear
…For what that’s worth
Cuz a broken promise is a promise in itself
To break your word if it suits yourself
Put my ring on his floor
And your conscience
On the shelf
