She was nervous she was late
She left it up to fate
Standing at a phone, oh
And she knows what she wants
And she came here to take it
How perfect it could be
You and me

And she met him at the door
"I don't want you anymore"
"Remember what you said?"

You and a promise
You and a promise
You...

Turned and he didn't wait
He walked right through the gate
So glad to be alone, mmmm
And he knows who to call
"I'll always be there for you,
call me anytime"
"I don't mean to offend,
the voice on the other end
is a stranger to me"

You and a promise
You and a promise
You...

And they say to themselves
And they say to themselves
How could I ever let this happen

You and a promise
You and a promise
Take me back
Or let this happen

    General CommentI agree with Mz.Christine731. The whole "being late" thing really clued me in on the pregnancy. Being late with her period what was I thought of it as.

    And the phone call with him saying "I'll always be there..." I think the boyfriend wants to help, but from afar. It seems like he's treating the unborn child like it isn't his, but he wants to act like his girlfriend's close friend and still help out with the child. "I'll watch him while you get groceries, but don't expect me to pay for his daycare bills."

    ...At least, that's how I see it...
