"Broken Promise Land" as written by and Sharon/rice Vaughn....
There's a Bible on the dresser and a sign hung on the door
And a woman in my arms shouldn't be
I'm to the point of no returning but I've been here before
This cheatin' life is nothing new to me.

There's someone to be considered I call her on the phone
And say the job is taking longer that I planned
I don't have the heart to tell her that a stranger's turned me on
And I'm headin' for the broken promise land.

Tonight I'm crossing over and I'll reach the cheatin' side
And I'll hate myself for coming here again
Where the streets are paved with misery and lives are built on lies
A place they call the broken promise land.

Found a note left on the dresser and a key left in the door
On the floor I found her golden wedding band
Guess she finally had to tell me she's not waiting anymore
And she's headin' for the broken promise land.

Tonight she's crossing over and she'll reach the cheatin' side
And I'll hate myself for coming here again
Where the streets are paved with misery and lives are built on lies
A place they call the broken promise land
And it's more than I can stand
