Promises (As the Years Go By)
Don't make any false promises

Stay awhile when I'm not alone
I forget all the anger in me
Kiss a tear when the hammer falls
They're holding me here in never ending circles

I can still remember summer madness
I can taste the perfume on your cheek
The heat is overcome by coldness [Incomprehensible]
Consoling words are insignificant
Say you'll pray

Justify the actions
These are days of the mob rule, sharp tongue, curfew
When the mind is in solitary confinement
Makes the mood that breaks you

There's a spirit seeking liberation
Here's a fire with a hungry heart
If I listen, maybe time will tell me
The reasons why we're torn apart

As the years go by
Don't make any false promises
As the years go by
Say you'll pray

Here the silence is too loud
In a steel barred jail on the other side
We invented the differences
That weaved the web with which we lied

Caught in the middle of a cold war zone
I left my lover in a far off place
She'll kiss a tear when the hammer's falling
And wipe the darkness from my face

As the years go by
Don't make any false promises
As the years go by
Say you'll pray
As the years go by
Don't make any false promises
As the years go by
Say you'll pray, say you'll pray
Just say you'll pray
Just say you'll pray
