The Vow

Rest assured I gave my word
I made a vow but I’m sorry now
Can it get much worse?
It can’t get much better
You hold me to my word
Down to the individual letter

And you hold me, you hold me
And you hold me to my word
And you hold me, you hold me
And you hold me to my word

Rest assured I gave my word
I made vow but I’m sorry now
I will commit but I’d rather quit
And I will submit but I won’t like it
I will commit but I’d rather quit
And I will submit but I won’t like it

And you hold me, you hold me
And you hold me to my word
And you hold me, you hold me
And you hold me to my word

Have You No Shame?

You open the door and loosen your collar
You venture off to explore and see what the world has to offer
You could never be tamed you roamed unrestrained
Unleashed and unchained but you’ll be back again

I’m the one who waited while you procrastinated
Have you no shame? Have you no shame?

All I scrimped and saved
You squandered and gave away
Now here you are just like before
Now that your poor you’re back for more

I’m the one who waited while you procrastinated
Have you no shame? Have you no shame?

Now that you’ve come back
You expect me to react
As if nothing’s changed
But its not the same

Have you no shame? Have you no shame?
Have you no shame? Have you no shame?

We Meet Again

We meet again just when I’m feeling well again
And once again you leave me feeling ill again
And I’m having a relapse and I’m going to be sick again
And I’m having a relapse and I’m going to be sick again

Though I beware I’m the prey without a prayer
You set your snare and there’s no escape caged in your lair
I can’t avoid the traps, I can’t avoid the traps you’ve lain
I can’t avoid the traps, I can’t avoid the traps you’ve lain

Concerning love you treat it like a chore
You’ve had enough but I want more
You feed me scraps and I cannot feed these hunger pains
You feed me scraps and I cannot feed these hunger pains

When We’re Old

We belong together now but you’re still searching and unsure
We won’t be young forever how can you say wait until we mature?
When you’re wrinkled and gray and no longer hesitating
When your beauty fades away I will still be waiting

When we’re old…

When time has passed us by and the best years of our lives
Wasted spent saving up every red cent for rest and retirement
When we’re rocking on the porch swing sipping lemonade and reminiscing
When our eyes dull and dim looking back on what could have been

When we’re old…
