(Music & Lyrics: Jenny & Martin Schaub)

Dear Sir, I am writing you this letter in despair
Please, Mister Agent, I pray
I have to leave this country but the priest don’t seem to care
Please Sir, I don’t want to stay

I am married, see, and between you and me
That’s the worst mistake I’ve made
I can’t stand the sight of him day and night
I will kill him if I stay
And I wish to God those words had never been spoken
But a promise is a promise – consider it broken

Dear Sir, I apologise, a simple soul like me
Please Mister Agent, I pray
I’ve heard you need no papers for the White Star Company
Please Sir, I don’t want to stay

And I count the days ’til I’m on my way
’til I’ll leave my so called home
And the nagging noise of his vile voice
I’ll be better off alone
And I wish to God those words had never been spoken
Still a promise is a promise – consider it broken

Dear Sir, when I met him I was just a silly girl
Please Mister Agent, I pray
My judgment just as poor as he, I got what I deserved
Please Sir, I don’t want to stay

He says he loves me still and he always will
He will never let me go
Like a bad disease, Mister Agent, please
You’re my last hope, let me know
And I wish to God those words had never been spoken
A promise is a promise – consider it broken
