"Broken Promises" as written by and Philip James Selway....
In time I'll return once more
To find the house where I was born

And then you took a photograph
Of me and my sisters back then
To celebrate the lives that you made
You held us and hoped that you'd find
Peace for the very first time

One day I'll begin again
And you start a chance to make amends
For all the broken promises
And dreams that are never fulfilled
I celebrate the lives you made
Look on my face and you'll find
Peace for the very first time

Once the hurt has faded
Once the hurt has faded
Once the hurt has faded
Only the love will remain

Once the hurt has faded
Once the hurt has faded
Once the hurt has faded
Only the love will remain

The broken promises
And dreams that are never fulfilled
Let's celebrate the lives you made
Go to a place where you'll find
Peace for the very first time
