Promises Lyrics

Well don't you know I need a little indulgence?
Listen to the hunter becoming hunted
Every day there's a million advances
Don't be too forceful you'll ruin your chances
Well don't you know that time is a broken glass
That splinters against the wall?
But the picture is coming back now, baby
And I want to take it all

Don't go making all these promises you know you cannot keep
There's a time to play a king and a time to be a thief
'Cause if you're making all these promises you know you cannot keep
You know time will be the thief and your fallen king will end up alone

So let your body move a little bit closer
Silent like the sound proceeding a cyclone
Don't you know that powerful thinking
Can be a force you don't want to relinquish?
Well don't you know that
They say that hanging on will justify the wait?
But patience and elated wisdom don't share a common phrase

Don't go making all these promises you know you cannot keep
There's a time to play a king and a time to be a thief
'Cause if you're making all these promises you know you cannot keep
You know time will be the thief and your fallen king will end up alone

Well, I'm only hanging on for what goes down
I'm floating high and my feet don't touch the ground
I'd take advantage but I can't see through this charade
So don't you, don't go make it harder than hell
'Cause when it comes down to the making
You better be damned sure you can take it
Hey baby

Well don't go making all these promises you know you cannot keep
There's a time to play a king and a time to be a thief
'Cause if you're making all these promises you know you cannot keep
You know time will be the thief and your fallen king will end up alone

Time will be the thief and your fallen king will end up...
A fool, a fool, a lonely sorry fool
Oh baby, 'cause I told you baby
