Intent and Action

lyrics

He held her by the hand
Then fell down to one knee
And said "know I trust in you
Please say you'll trust in me"

"I could never give you up"
She said most definitely
"And this ring is a symbol of
My undying love unto thee"

And they exchanged words
That had a sort of tangible meaning
And then they made promises they'd keep

It was the proper thing to do
It was the way they thought they knew

He walked her to car
She fumbled for her keys
And said "I won't tell on you
If you don't tell on me"

"I could never give you up"
He said most definitely
While his wife just sat at home
Flipping channels on their TV

Remember when words
They had some sort of tangible meaning
And people made promises they'd keep
And people thought about the things they'd say
And how they lived their lives from day to day
Was a reflection of their best intents
And not just the step they thought was next

Remember when words
They had some sort of tangible meaning
And people made promises they'd keep

It was the proper thing to do
It was the way they thought they knew

They thought they knew
