"Promise Me" as written by and Luther / Vandross....
dream a little dream
another little dream tonight
I'll dream myself to death
it's all that I can handle
someone fix this mess
dreaming of a way
to get me out of here tonight
forever never ends
I'm hung I'm drawn I'm courting
nothing but a knife to my chest
promise me this wont hurt
and promise me now
maybe we wont wake up tommorow
look me straight in the eye
and tell me what you see
scratched up memories
the bruises vuts the scars the scars the stinging
still i dont feel a thing
shes's seeping like salt into the cuts
I'm dreaming I wont wake up
everything falls in around us
my heart is beating
but you make me nervous

    General CommentLove the song. Love the band.

    But i suck with meanings. However, I'm gonna take a stab, and say it's about a guy being heartbroken, and maybe the girl doesn't realise what an effect she had on him...

    General CommentI LOVE The Hot Lies...saw them on the 25th...they went off! I think this song is about a broken heart...and possibly even suicide or cutting. 'Promise me this wont hurt and Promise me now. Maybe we wont wake up tomorrow'...still not sure though. Just know its a brilliant song!
