    Lyrics

    When i think about the turn my life has taken
    i know it's because of you that i recieve 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, you came,
    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

    A promise is a promise
    in my eyes
    can't say your 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 that 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, she prayed,
    she did just what she said
    for that he'll love her forever
    she kept her word to him
    For that he'll love her forever.

    A promise is a promise
    in my eyes
    can't say your 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

    Her wedding day and she's thinking about
    the way he wanted her affection
    She was so cynical about love
    'cuz she didn't want to be heartbroken 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

    A promise is a promise
    in my eyes
    can't say your 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
