Every Promise Lost

I stand over her now
Lost in my memories
Of when you looked and sang
But now she lies before me
Just as the good times began

We promised her a light
That would shine across the land
But now too soon
She lies before us
When life reached her end

Why do say these things
Why do we stand and pray
For the future of dream of
Is not same as today

And now the promise is broken
All the good, they say, dies young
And all we know now is gone
And every promise lost

When I arrive home
Lost in my cries
I find a letter inside
It’s from long ago and sorrowful
From one I once loved more

I promise I'll be better
It says with your goodbye
It says you loved me
And now I don't know
If That was only a lie

Why do say these things
Why do we stand and pray
For the future of dream of
Is not same as today

And now the promise is broken
All the good, they say, dies young
And all we know now is gone
And every promise lost

Why does the sun set now
Can't we have more light?
So we can cry one last time
For all those who failed the climb

It says you loved me
But now I don't know
But was it only a lie?

Why do say such things
Why do we stand and pray
For the future of dream of
Is not same as today

And now the promise is broken
All the good, they say, dies young
And all we know now is gone
And every promise lost

And now the promise is broken
All the good, they say, dies young
And all we know now is gone
And every promise lost

And now the promise is broken
All the good, they say, dies young
For all we know now is gone
And every promise lost
