PROMISE

Why would you think I meant every word that I said
Just cos I said
Doesn’t mean I have to mean it
Oaths can return and kick you in the righteousness
So I’m never gonna make another promise for as long as I live



Why would I say anything to go and change my mind the next day
It’s not my style to move the goalposts
And anyway you hear what you want to hear
So I’m never gonna make another promise for as long as I live



I’m on the outside and I’m looking in
How can I help you when I can’t get in



So I cry in my beer
I hate to be misunderstood
And we were so near
I can’t help think that I should not even be here
Silence can’t be thrown at me
So I’m never gonna make another promise for as long as I live



So I cry in my drink and wonder what I have to do
Just cos I do it, doesn’t mean I mean it too
I’m always right except for when you say I’m not
So I’m never gonna make another promise for as long as I live
So I’m never gonna make another promise for as long as I live
