Promises of Love


I know it can get lonely inside a love,
and you start staring idly at the stars up above.
Well, have you found any new constellations?
I'm getting tired of the cancellations
of the promises, the promises of love, the promises of love


it's true they had to pay off the cops to leave 'em alone,
but my conscience, baby, is as clear as anyone's.
I guess your priest was just too busy with his anointments
to console you in your disappointments
of the promises, the promises of love, the promises of love


And I know that your justice was too slow to come,
and you had to run north, up to Canada.
Well, did you come across any new clues?
Do you know any secrets I can use?
of the promises, the promises of love, the promises of love


Take it easy, you know the morning always comes,
both soft and hard, just like a boxer's glove
Well, are you the one I've been seeking?
Or is it just the booze that's speaking?
of the promises, the promises of love, the promises of love


She asked if she could believe a word they say,
if I could point out someone good, true, and kind.
I just said, go ahead, girl, take yourself a lover,
just be sure you don't try and take mine.


You tell me that you've traveled all over the world.
Where were you when I finally walked into the club?
But this is no accusation.
I guess it's just another hesitation
of the promises, the promises of love, the promises of love
