V1
She blew into our lives
We didn't want her here
She broke us down and
stole from us
And now we live in fear

V2
The trees started blowing
The water was rising
Our tears started flowing
Why wouldn't you
stop our crying?

Chorus 1
Do you remember
On that August day?
The promises you made to us
To care for us, be
there for us
Instead you turned away
Do you remember on
that August day
The promises you made?
Do you remember?
The Promise!

V3
So why did you leave us
So broken and afraid
We believed in you
To see us through
And send for us right away

V4
Innocence was lost that day
By people who believed
Your promises to care for us,
In our time of need
Repeat Chorus 1

Chorus 2
We can't go back to yesterday
We'll never be the same
Our lives are changed forever
Because of broken promises
Do you remember on
that August day
The promises you made?
Do you remember?
If only you came

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite Brianna song. She wrote it after Hurricane Katrina, after she and her family had lost their home. It's a pretty good song.
