Good Lord lyrics

We took an oath in those lines,
Me in my tie, and you all dressed in white
When the band played "Hey, now"
Our families danced, celebrating our vows
Nobody loved you like I did
Thought you'd be mother to my kids
but it all changed when I saw you with someone else

Good Lord, good Lord, good Lord
You made all those promises, but you broke them like my heart
Saying things like Darling, I do until death do us apart
Now the time runs out on that love,
I gotta leave these vows behind
They were empty promises.

You would steal me every night, and I'm sitting at home
As new husband and wife
Drinking in Fitzroy pubs till two, singing those Fleetwood songs with you
but it all changed when I saw you with someone else

Good Lord, good Lord, good Lord
You made all those promises, but you broke them like my heart
Saying things like Darling, I do until death do us apart
Now the time runs out on that love,
I gotta leave these vows behind
They were empty promises.

I felt so hard to my knees,
My heart says no, this can't be
Who was that guy who aimed me?

Good Lord, good Lord, good Lord
You made all those promises, but you broke them like my heart
Saying things like Darling, I do until death do us apart
Now the time runs out on that love,
I gotta leave these vows behind
They were empty promises.
