Empty Promises


The empty promises you made
I thought it would be different every time
I was always the little girl waiting by the door
For her daddy to come home--
Even when I begged you not to go
You promised you'd be right back
So I sat by that door as hours passed
You left me waiting every time
All I ever wanted was a good night hug
But all I ever got was an empty promise
