Promises
Sunrise And Memories Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴

I held you like a time bomb in my hands
I secretly hoped that it wouldn't last
Compromised my dreams for living for your smile
In the end it wasn't even worth my while
You are sorrow
You are darkness
You're the memory
I want to forget
I'm a fool for thinking you were better this
You're the kind of love full of false promises
I'm a fool for thinking you were better this
You're the kind of love full of false promises
I knew I tasted poison in your kiss
It was a warning sign that I dismissed
Leave me hanging
With a smile
In my hands
Held out for you
Left here standing
Empty pockets
Feelin waves
All shades of blue
I'm a fool for thinking you were better this
You're the kind of love full of false promises
I'm a fool for thinking you were better this
You're the kind of love full of false promises
You'll tell them I was crazy
Maybe I was
You'll even say you hate me
It's all said and done
The respect I had for you has
Ceased to exist
Hope you don't stop seeing my face
In the next person you're with
I'm a fool for thinking you were better this
You're the kind of love full of false promises




I'm a fool for thinking you were better this
You're the kind of love full of false promises
