Promises Broken Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Streets are filled with broken glass
You get buried by the past
And give me just a little taste
Lay this mess to waste, take me home

My mind is racing take me home
My body's aching so alone
I'll make you want to stay with me
Befriended by the enemy, one more time

And every little thing about this tells me
Nothing out there is ever gonna help me
All these words that I hear spoken
Just promises broken now

Looking outside from my window sill
Throw another coin in the wishing well
Never find what you're looking for
Fifteen miles, your dim light shines from so far away
Your sad smile is all I see when I say

That every little thing about this tells me
Nothing out there is ever gonna help me
And all these words that I hear spoken
Just promises broken now

From the hotel satellite
Don't look like you're living right
Here's a deal you can't refuse
You ain't got as much to lose

Can you tell your troubles to
Someone who won't laugh at you, it's all right
As I watch you walk away
Hope a part of you would stay and it's all right

And every little thing about this tells me
Nothing out there is ever gonna help me
All these words that I hear spoken
Just promises broken now

MURPHY, DANIEL DAVID/PERLMAN, MARC R.
