i promised lyrics – hank williams iii

i promised
(feat. eddie pleasant)

she’s standing high on cloud nine, believing all my lies
i was trying to win her over, and did to my surprise
i don’t have all the things i said i could give her
i promised her a moon that i can’t deliver

she’ll be hurt when she finds i’m a dead dreamin’ fool
although she might forgive, she won’t like being used
i offered her life lined with gold and silver
i promised her the moon that i can’t deliver

she’s too happy to be hurt so i’ll starve for a time
i don’t know what i’ve got that makes her eyes shine
but i’ve got her heart rollin’ like and overflowin’ river
i’ve promised her a moon that i can’t deliver

she’ll be hurt when she finds i’m a dead dreamin’ fool
although she might forgive, she won’t like being used
i offered her life lined with gold and silver
i promised her the moon that i can’t deliver

now i’ll face reality with what i’ve got to thrill her
i promised her a moon, and that’s what i’m going to give her
