"Promises" as written by and Lyle Lovett....
Push start
Move over in the doorway
Let's go
What's that you say
Look in the mirror
You can't look away
Get stuck
With yourself in the new skin
Get lost
Drown in a new sin
And in the morning can't say where you've been

Promises, promises, promises, promises
What did you promise
You promised yourself
Promises, promises, promises, promises
What did you promise
You promised yourself

Push start
Move over in the doorway
Pass go

What's that you say
Look in the mirror
You can't look away
Get stuck
With yourself in a new skin
Get lost
Drown in a new sin
And in the morning can't say where you've been

Promises, promises, promises, promises
What did you promise
You promised yourself
Promises, promises, promises, promises
What did you promise
You promised yourself

Time has been passing while you have been laughing
And time is not on your side
Time has been passing while you have been laughing
And time is not on your side
And time is not on your side
And time is not on your side
And time is not on your side

Promises, promises, promises, promises
What did you promise
You promised yourself
Promises, promises, promises, promises
What did you promise
You promised yourself
