Stephanie Bentley — If Promises Were Gold lyrics

She knows three years was too long
To keep waiting
But somehow she was hoping she could
Change him
Still all his dreams turned to dust
And who can survive in a love without trust

If promises were gold she could pay off
All the bills
And buy that pretty house sittin high
On the hill
If she only had the money for every lie
She's been told
She'd be a rich woman now
If promises were gold

Buy 6 o'clock he'll miss her rusty Chevy
Won't take long to notice dinner
Isn't ready
Then he'll call up everyone she knows
Sayin "I'll do her right" if she'll only
Come home

But, if promises were gold she could pay off
All the bills
And buy that pretty house sittin high
On the hill
If she only had the money for every lie
She's been told
She'd be a rich woman now
If promises were gold

She didn't take much, just the heart she
Once wore on her sleeve
She's leavin behind every lie she
Tried to believe

And if promises were gold she could pay off
All the bills
And buy that pretty house sittin high
On the hill
If she only had the money for every lie
She's been told
She'd be a rich woman now
If promises were gold
