Promises
Savage Garden;Darren Hayes Lyrics


Well don't you know I need a
Little indulgence?
Listen to the hunter becoming
Hunted
Everyday 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 glass
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 a 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 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 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 a 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 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
That hell
Cause it comes down to the making
You'd better be damned sure you can
Take it
Hey 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 a 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 end up alone

Time will be the thief
And your fallen king will end up...
A fool, a fool, a lonely sorry fool
Oh baby, 'cause I told you baby

Thank You So Very Much

Well don't you know I need a little indulgence?
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 glass
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 the king and a time to be a 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 the king and a time to be a 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
'Cause when it comes down to the making
You better be damned sure you can take it
Hey baby
Well don't go making all these promises you know you cannot keep
There's a time to play the king and a time to be a 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 don't go making all these promises you know you cannot keep
There's a time to play the king and a time to be a thief
'Cause if you're making all these promises you know you cannot keep
Time will be the thief and your fallen king will end up...
A fool, a fool, a lonely sorry fool
Oh baby, 'cause I told you baby

I super miss this song. I love you Savage Garden to the moon and back. Who's listening with me this Quarantine time? :)

Joetta Harris

Yes! Truly one of the best bands of the late 90's! One of the best Aussie bands of all times! Since they were one of my favorite bands, I've researched them extensively and know whey they ultimately broke up. Here's why should you be interested: Darren Hayes has publicly said that Daniel Jones was the straightest guy he has ever know. I was a huge fan of this band and have researched them extensively. Daniel Jones was the talented musician, with band experience and they were just looking for a vocalist, when Darren Hayes applied. Darren Hayes was married to a woman for many years (before turning). It's obvious to my research that Darren developed a huge crush on Daniel overtime, which was what ultimately broke up the band, not to mention Daniel hated the touring scene and was a strong heterosexual. Daniel has been happy married with two children for many years and lives in the states and completely left the tainted music industry.
