Don't Make Promises
It seems the songs we're singing 
Are all about tomorrow
Tunes of promises you can't keep
Ev'ry moment bringing 
The love I can only borrow
You're telling me lies in your sleep

Do you think I'm not aware of what you're saying
Or why you're saying it
Is it hard to keep me where you want me staying
Don't go on betraying it
Don't make promises you can't keep

We had a chance to find it
Our time was now or never
You promised me things that I need
But then the things behind it
Took away the chance forever
You're telling me lies in your sleep

Do you think I'm not aware of what you're saying
Or why you're saying it
Is it hard to keep me where you want me staying
Don't go on betraying it
Don't make promises you can't keep
Don't make promises you can't keep
