broken promises

my mind
can never stray
far enough away
and it feels just like addiction

you swear
you'd never phone
to see if i'm at home
and now you've got the neighbors talking

my heart
can never be
just a heart for me
and the price is high for my condition

you've tried
to run and hide
still the voices inside
are begging for a quick solution

the smile beyond your face
the twist within your mouth
no i never said that i'd do this anymore
and we keep breaking promises

i promise you
and we keep breaking promises
i promise you
and we keep breaking promises

my mind
will always play
tricks on me each day
and we wake up right beside each other

your time
turns out to be
entirely free
and nobody would think of looking

my heart
will always fade
each time your visit's paid
and the ones at home don't seem to miss me

you'd think
there's a happier end
with good will to spend
and now you feel the walls are shaking

the smile beyond your face
the twist within your mouth
no i never said that i'd do this anymore
and we keep breaking promises

i cross my heart and hope to die
you raise your hand for all the stars in the sky
and we keep breaking promises
so strike me dead right where i stand
don't know what's their problem i just can't understand
and we keep breaking promises

we are all heading toward the tide
beneath the waves of lower frequency
do you think it's love that we have together
or is it just some haunted fantasy
what does it all mean

the smile beyond your face
the twist within your mouth
no i never said that i'd do this anymore
and we keep breaking promises

i cross my heart and hope to die
you raise your hand for all the stars in the sky
and we keep breaking promises
so strike me dead right where i stand
don't know what's their problem i just can't understand
and we keep breaking promises
i cross my heart and hope to die
you raise your hand for all the stars in the sky
and we keep breaking promises
so strike me dead right where i stand
don't know what's their problem i just can't understand
and we keep breaking promises
