The Promise

Album: The Ghost Of Ohio (2019)

  • Livin' on the West Side born and raised
    Made a deal with the devil found glory days
    There's no way, that I'll stay

    Drivin' down on Highway 75
    Watch the world come down on borrowed time
    Find some way, to escape

    But we all find home
    We all find home

    Do you remember all the plans we made
    Hope and prayin' for a better day
    Tell me whatever happened to the love we gave
    The promise that we both betrayed

    And the songs we sang
    The times we fought for everything
    Tell me whatever happened to what I've become?
    The pain I feel for where I'm from

    Hanging from the cross on 50 West
    You got a dream and a chance to run from this
    I'm locked in, believin'

    Drinkin' till I'm lost and giving it up
    Another day another chance to test my luck
    Way out there, they won't care

    But we can't get out
    We can't get out

    Do you remember all the plans we made
    Hope and prayin' for a better day
    Tell me whatever happened to the love we gave
    The promise that we both betrayed

    And the songs we sang
    The times we fought for everything
    Tell me whatever happened to what I've become?
    The pain I feel for where I'm from

    In the city, I found my hope
    I know, I feel it
    My purpose, to end it
    I can't go home

    Do you remember all the plans we made
    Hope and prayin' for a better day
    Tell me whatever happened to the love we gave
    The promise that we both betrayed

    And the songs we sang
    The times we fought for everything
    Tell me whatever happened to what I've become?
    The pain I feel for where I'm from

    Do you remember all the plans we made
    Hope and prayin' for a better day
    Tell me whatever happened to the love we gave
    The promise that we both betrayed
