Songs: Promises to Keep


Promises to Keep

 

Just a young drunkard

alone on the Street

I quiet my heart with Promises to Keep

Like thousands of others

My souls all I have

Yet I bargain it freely

As if I were mad

 

(C)

But there’s a River I’ll run to

Whenever I know

It’s the last chance for circumstance

Your first chance to show

That your Hearts in the Right Place

A debt has been paid

Having worshipped seclusion

Now I am saved

 

Been dying forever

But dying is slow

Go south in the winter

When the North’s full of snow

Like thousands of others

My souls all I have

Yet I bargain it freely

As if I were mad

(C)
