When I was a young boy I saw a vision of your face
I made my first promise to you
Yeah ya know it took some time
But I love you now I realize
I am a promise maker
I am a promise breaker
On the road to faithfulness I sometimes forget your name
But I can still see your face
And time after time I hear you calling my name
I gotta name for me, I gotta name for me,
I gotta name for me, I gotta name
I am the promise maker
I am the promise breaker
On my knees for the last time
I could rip my heart out every day
I made my last promise to you
Yeah I could cry I could cry a million tears a day
And all I would hear you
All I would hear you say is
You are the promise taker
You are the promise taker
You are the promise taker
Put them in your promise blender
You took me, and you own me
And you bought me, and you love me
promise keeper, keeper, keeper

    General CommentWhy can't Skillet write songs like this any more?

    This song is a simple yet powerful Christian message about how we continue to make and break promises, but God takes them all and forgives them (puts them in His promise blender, awesome metaphor!). We are promise breakers, but God is the only true promise keeper.
