I can promise I will stop
To avoid the look on your face
I can promise I will quit
So all will fall into place
I can promise I won't do it
To hang on to your dream
I can promise I won't push it
So you can't hear me scream
I can promise I'll stay strong
So you will lead a happy life
I can promise I'll hold on
I won't reach for my knife
I can promise I will give it up
So all your problems will fade
I can promise I will make it stop
I will not push the blade
I can promise not to cut again
So the pain won't make me feel
I can promise not to slice the same
As if it's just not real
But you say you can't forgive me
For the scars I used to make
You know they'll stay forever on me
So it's already too late
And all these honest promises
Are nothing but a fake
