"10,000 Promises" as written by and Martin Max....
Once we were lovers
Just lovers we were
Oh what a lie
And once we were dreamers
Just dreamers we were
Both you and I

Now I see you're just somebody
Who wasted my time and money
What a lie
You and I

What about your
Your 10 000 promises
That you gave to me
Your 10 000 promises
That you promised me

Once I could handle the truth well
The truth was you and I
But time after time all the
Promises turned out
To be your lies

So now, now I see your just somebody
Who wasted my time and money
What a lie
You and I

You said I'll take you back
But I'll close the door
Cause I don't want 10,000 more

Oh
10,000 promises yeah
Oh
10,000 promises you gave to me

Once we were lovers
Just lovers we were
Oh, you and I
What a lie

    General CommentJust to wind things up a little: Backstreet boys (N*sync, A1, Britney Spears and all that industrial pop-crap) is NOT, and I state, NOT music. I don't have any problems with people who listens to it, but I would have to shoot myself if I ever listen to it, and enjoy it. They don't write their own songs and music, they pay some rich ass label-owner to do it, and then they make a lot of money. Its truely, truely 100% FAKE, and they get air-time on radio and mtv because they have tons of money, when real bands who makes their own non-fake music, haven't got so much cash to pay for air-time. Its just wrong!!! I know people proberbly don't give a fuck about my opinion, and that you don't have to agree with me, but this is what I think. If you want to support music the way it should be, then don't buy any of that plastic-fake pop-flop "music". Get this...

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful. It's okay to think that what the Backstreet Boys do is fake. Although that is false, if people think that it is true and they do not like the Backstreet Boys (for whatever reason) then, they should be able to express themselves as those who do like the Backstreet Boys express themselves. I particularly like BSB. Even though I respect everyone else's thoughts on them, that doesn't mean I have to share in them.
