"Promises" as written by and Hal David Burt Bacharach....
There was a day
When we made promises
And there was a day
When we kept them
We were like one
No one could stop us
We ruled the world
From the throne you made
Promises -- we were young and free
Promises -- how it ought to be
Promises -- but somewhere it changed
Promises -- nothing remains the same
Now when we were tight
You made such promises
The world was alright
And we believed them
But now it's through
And your stock is down
Put out the fuse
The sparks are on the ground
Promises -- we were young and free
Promises -- how it ought to be
Promises -- but somewhere it changed
Promises -- nothing remains the same
Hurrah for yesterday
Long live yesterday
Drink a toast
To yesterday
We got the most
Out of yesterday
We were like one
We were like one
Promises -- we were young and free
Promises -- how it ought to be
Promises -- but somewhere it changed
Promises -- nothing remains the same
Hurrah for yesterday
Long live yesterday
Drink a toast
To yesterday
We got the most
Out of yesterday
