Don't fill me up with flowery phrases and promises of forever after; don't tell me that you'll cherish me and stand by me no matter what. Don't say that you're going to work hard to build a future where we won't have to worry. Don't say that you love me and that I'm your one and only. For God's sake, don't tell me no more lies!
You want me to believe you? Then show me! Prove to me that your not like every other so-called man I knew before you. Stand up, take charge, and follow through. Take care of me, make time for me; come and play with me and make me laugh. Hold me when I cry. Treat me with respect, and don't be afraid to let your friends see that you cherish me. Show them that being cool is about honoring your lady, not casting her aside to leer at every other babe that walks.
You say that I'm the best thing that ever happened to you. Well let me tell you something... if you fill me up with empty words and broken promises, there's gonna come a day when I look back and say, "You're right, I damn sure was."

where the prompt choices this week are broken and words...
