Track Lyrics

INTRO

PROMISES, PROMISES
PROMISES, PROMISES
PROMISES, PROMISES

VERSE 1

YESTERDAY I WAS SURE
LIFE WAS JUST LIKE A DREAM
BUT IT JUST GOES TO SHOW
(LOVE HAS NO GUARANTEE)
ALL ALONG THEY COULD SEE
THAT YOU WERE LAUGHING AT ME
I WAS BLIND TO THE TRUTH
(NOW YOU'RE DOWN ON YOUR KNEES)

BRIDGE 1

SHOULD'VE BEEN RUNNING
I KNOW IT SOUNDS FUNNY
I WAS SUCH A FOOL
'COS I COULDN'T SEE IT COMING

CHORUS

JUST A HANDFUL OF PROMISES
YOU GAVE ME
A POCKETFUL OF DREAMS
THAT JUST WON'T DO
HOW CAN I GO ON
WITH NOTHING TO LIVE ON
BUT A HANDFUL OF PROMISES
PROMISES, PROMISES YOU GAVE ME
PROMISES, PROMISES YOU GAVE ME

VERSE 2

WELL, YOU CHEAT AND YOU LIE
AND YOU HURT ME THIS WAY
GAVE MY HEART, DIDN'T I
(BUT YOU GAVE IT IN VAIN)
SUCH A FOOL TO BELIEVE
YOU'D TAKE ME SERIOUSLY
DIDN'T I TREAT YOU RIGHT
(BUT HOW WRONG CAN YOU BE)

BRIDGE 2

SHOULD'VE BEEN RUNNING
I KNOW IT SOUNDS FUNNY
ALL THAT I'M LEFT WITH
IS A WHOLE LOT OF NOTHING

CHORUS

JUST A HANDFUL OF PROMISES
YOU GAVE ME
A POCKETFUL OF DREAMS
THAT JUST WON'T DO
HOW CAN I GO ON
WITH NOTHING TO LIVE ON
BUT A HANDFUL OF PROMISES
PROMISES, PROMISES YOU GAVE ME
PROMISES, PROMISES YOU GAVE ME

MIDDLE 8

PROMISES, PROMISES
PROMISES, PROMISES
(BUT HOW WRONG CAN YOU BE)

BRIDGE 3

SHOULD'VE BEEN RUNNING
I KNOW IT SOUNDS FUNNY
I WAS SUCH A FOOL
'COS I COULDN'T SEE IT COMING

CHORUS

JUST A HANDFUL OF PROMISES
YOU GAVE ME
A POCKETFUL OF DREAMS
THAT JUST WON'T DO
HOW CAN I GO ON
WITH NOTHING TO LIVE ON
BUT A HANDFUL OF PROMISES
PROMISES, PROMISES
