Broken Promises

Location

As the sea roared & the tides were falling back, I got dragged into my depression 
I imagined you grabbing me by the waist and throwing me in the water. 
(I'm such an idiot, you're 5,000 miles away & you're never coming back)
We built this love on broken promises that we could never keep, but at the moment it felt so right, to live another night, you said I'd be alright.
When we skyped I could hear the gentleness in your voice, you said you loved me since the first day and how we were gonna be together & happy
I wish I could've seen the yellow light.
(I'm such an idiot, you're 5,000 miles away & you're never coming back) 
We built this love on broken promises that we could never keep, but at that moment we felt so right, for you to stay another night, you said I'd be alright. 
I still hold the texts in my phone, I just can't let you go, I have this dream of you coming back to me, I was your reason to breathe,  I was the reason your ♡ was still beating. 
You pulled me out of my depression just to throw me back in, how was I so stupid I knew you where gonna do this. 
(I'm such an idiot, you're 5,000 miles away & you're never coming back) 
We built this love on broken promises that we were never gonna keep, but in that moment we felt so right, I just wanted you to stay one more night, you said I'd be alright 
I called you at 11:46 that night, but I got your voice mail, I hate those nights when I can't stop thinking about you because I can't hold you tight... 5 minutes ago I was crying and you sent me "I could waste my whole life watching you smile" 
Our love was built on broken promises we were never meant to keep, but in the moment it all felt so right, just to be with you for one more night.
