"Promise Me" as written by and Rainbow....
We don't know what time we'll be there
But we won't show up till later
It will all look so much nicer
After all of us arrive

Promise me to pass the time
Dance with me on plastic tears
Kiss me, We won't feel alone
Till morning when we disappear

Though we all want to be noticed
There's no need for competition
'Cause there's just no way of knowing
Where the camera points tonight

Promise me to pass the time
Dance with me on plastic tears
Kiss me, We won't feel alone
Till morning when we disappear

We don't listen to each other
'Cause we're all too busy talking
We'll tell lies about each other
'Cause the truth is such a bore
With the threat of dawn approaching
And our interest quickly fading
We will stumble home together
As we did the night before

Promise me to pass the time
Dance with me on plastic tears
Kiss me, We won't feel alone
'Til morning when we disappear

    General CommentI think it describes the party scene in general. A bunch of bored ("promise me to pass the time") teenagers/young adults get together, get drunk, pretend they're all great friends ("we won't feel alone 'til morning when we disappear"), then they find a place to crash when it's over ("with the threat of dawn approaching and our interest quickly fading, we will stumble home together as we did the night before"), wake up the next morning and do it all over again.

    General CommentThis is about a relationship based on lies and un real promises, which could be a reason why the song is called "Promise me." What I think is interesting about this song is the fact that she adds in the calmer (and most beautiful part of the song)
    "We don't listen to each other
    'Cause we're all too busy talking
    We'll tell lies about each other
    'Cause the truth is such a bore"
    This is obviously what many people do, they never communicate and they dont listen to each other, as not to spoil the dream, sometimes the dream of unreal love. They do not want to see the truth, bc the lies are more beautiful. This appears in the next line, telling lies makes everything better since they dont remind themselves of the lie they are living in. Truth is just a bore, because everything will go back to what it was before, or it just spoils the dream.
    I love this song, is so deep, just as every other of The Birthday Massacre songs, one my of my favorite bands.

    General CommentThe first 2 coments I agree with. Friends partying..or not all of them are friends cause they speak of lies to eachother. But I definatly decided this was a party song when I read "We will stumble home together
    As we did the night before" so they keep partying all the time, night after night cause it says the night before.

    General Commentthis song is about a party definitely.
    i think it's about a girl who meets a guy and they're in each other's arms for the night then nothing happens the next day...
