I still talk to you in my sleep
I don't say much 'cause the hurt runs too deep
I gave you the moon and the stars to keep
But you gave them back to me
The hill I'm walkin' up is gettin' good and steep,
but I'm still lookin' for a promise even I can't keep
I still lay on my side of the bed
I dance alone when the last bottle's spent
Memories like a river runnin' through my head
I have me an ocean before I'm dead
The hill I'm walkin' up is
gettin' good and steep, but I'm
still lookin' for a promise
even I can't keep
I still whisper sweet words to you
And when I'm busy with nothing to do
I pray to God that my words ring true
And that your words might reach me too
The hill I'm walkin' up is
gettin' good and steep, but I'm
still lookin' for a promise
even I can't keep
I can't keep it...
My heart's in pieces so please understand
I'm tryin' to jump but I've nowhere to land
So give me your heart and I'll give you my hand
And try as goddamn hard as I can...
The hill I'm walkin' up is
gettin' good and steep, but I'm
still lookin' for a promise
even I can't keep
I can't keep it...
