Savage Garden - Promises Lyrics




Send Promises Ringtone to your Cell

Well don't you know I need a little indulgence?
Well listen to the hunter becoming hunted
Every day there's a million advances
Don't be too forceful you'll ruin your chances

Well don't you know that time is a broken gla*s
That splinters against the wall?
But the picture is coming back now baby
And I want to take it all

Don't go making all these promises
You know you cannot keep
There's a time to play a king
And a time to be the thief

'Cause if you're making all these
Promises you know you cannot keep
You know time will be the thief
And your fallen king will end up alone

So let your body move a little bit closer
Silent like the sound proceeding a cyclone
Don't you know that powerful thinking
Can be a force you don't want to relinquish?

Well don't you know that
They say that hanging on will justify the wait?
But patience and elated wisdom
Don't share a common phrase

Don't go making all these promises
You know you cannot keep
There's a time to play a king
And a time to be the thief

'Cause if you're making all these
Promises you know you cannot keep
You know time will be the thief
And your fallen king will end up alone

Well, I'm only hanging on for what goes down
I'm floating high and my feet don't touch the ground
I'd take advantage but I can't see through this charade
So don't you, don't go make it harder than hell

Don't go making promises
Don't go making promises

'Cause when it comes down to the making
You better be damned sure you can take it
Hey baby

Don't go making promises
Don't go making promises

Oh baby, don't you know baby?

Don't go making all these promises
You know you cannot keep
There's a time to play a king
And a time to be the thief

'Cause if you're making all these
Promises you know you cannot keep
You know time will be the thief
And your fallen king will end up alone

Don't go making all these promises
You know you cannot keep
There's a time to play a king
And a time to be the thief

'Cause if you're making all these promises
You know you cannot keep
You know time will be the thief
And your fallen king will end up alone, alone, alone
Always be alone
Oh baby, that's you know baby, yeah
