"Promises Like Pie-Crust" as written by and Carla Bruni....
Promise me no promises
So will I not promise you
Keep we both our liberties
Never false and never true

Let us hold the die uncast
Free to come as free to go
For I cannot know your past
And of mine what can you know?

You, so warm, may once have been
Warmer towards another one
I, so cold, may once have seen
Sunlight, once have felt the sun

Who shall show us if it was
Thus indeed in time of old?
Fades the image from the glass
And the fortune is not told

If you promised, you might grieve
For lost liberty again
If I promised, I believe
I should fret to break the chain

Let us be the friends we were
Nothing more but nothing less
Many thrive on frugal fare
Who would perish of excess

Promise me no promises
Well, promise me no promises
So will I not promise you
Keep we both our liberties
Never false and never true

Let us hold the die uncast
Free to come as free to go
For I cannot know your past
And of mine what can you know?

And if you promised, you might grieve
For lost liberty again
If I promised, I believe
I should fret to break the chain

Let us be the friends we were
Nothing more, nothing less
Many thrive on frugal fare
Who would perish of excess

Promises like pie-crust
Promises like pie-crust
