"Promises"

If I could burn up memories
Every thought I have of you
I promise there’d be ashes on the floor.
If I could run away from dreams
And all of these mixed feelings
I promise I’d be headed out that door.

Pre-Chorus:
But I don’t make promises I can’t keep
Maybe that’s something you should try
But I can promise every time I see your face
Part of my heart just dies.

Chorus:
I promise you, I promise you I love you
I promise you I always will
I promise you I want to come crawling back
But I promise that I never will.

If moving on were like a song
I’d play that tune all day long
I promise you’d hear it down the hall
And if love were like a game
I’d buy every manual that ever came
I promise you I’d read them all.

Pre-Chorus:
But I don’t make promises I can’t keep
Maybe that’s something you should try
But I can promise every time I see your face
Part of my heart just dies.

Chorus:
I promise you, I promise you I love you
I promise you I always will
I promise you I want to come crawling back
But I promise that I never will.
