BURT BACHARACH


Promises, Promises Lyrics

Promises, promises
I'm all through with promises, promises now
I don't know how I got the nerve to walk out
If I shout, remember I feel free
Now I can look at myself and be proud
I'm laughing out loud

Oh, promises, promises
This is where those promises, promises end
I don't pretend that what was wrong can be right
Every night I sleep now, no more lies
Things that I promised myself fell apart
But I found my heart

Oh, promises
Their kind of promises,
Can just destroy a life
Oh, promises
Those kind of promises
Take all the joy from life
Oh, promises, promises
My kind of promises
Can lead to joy
And hope and love
Yes, love!

Every night I sleep now, no more lies
Things that I promised myself fell apart
But I found my heart

Oh, promises
Their kind of promises,
Can just destroy a life
Oh, promises
Those kind of promises
Take all the joy from life
Oh, promises, promises
My kind of promises
Can lead to joy
And hope and love
Yes, love!
