lifeblood: songs: lyrics: making promises


what am i gonna do with you
so far away
it makes me blue

i never mind just being alone
but i felt defeated
and i let it show

you know i could have ridden the rainbow
and this once
i needed you to let me know

i couldn't keep myself
from making promises
i'm of two hearts and up all night

i couldn't keep myself
from making promises
i'm gonna get it right this time

who's gonna say you paid your dues
with the strung out soundman
and the promoter dude

with a pat on the back just a little far down
you cut your teeth
on a drinking crowd

ah never mind you didn't make it
(you didn't make it)
what's the point
(oh what's the point)
if you're never gonna shake it
(never gonna shake it)

i couldn't keep myself
from making promises
i'm of two hearts and up all night

i couldn't keep myself
from making promises
i'm gonna get it right this time

now when the spring is coming around
and i'm feeling braver
i'm gonna lay it down

and when the teenage hoodlums come out
i'm gonna give 'em a smile
and just a little doubt

ah never mind we didn't make it
(we didn't make it)
ah what's the point
(oh what's the point)
if we're never gonna
if we're never gonna shake it

(i couldn't keep myself)
from making promises
(from making promises)
i couldn't keep
(i couldn't keep myself)
i couldn't keep myself
(from making promises)
from making promises
(i couldn't keep myself)
i couldn't keep
(from making promises)
i couldn't keep myself
(i couldn't keep myself)
from making promises
(from making promises)
i couldn't keep
