"promises"
Hanson


And I've fallen so hard
On a ground I sworeI'd never go
And living in fear's
Not what it appears
Because I'm sure from above
Everything appears normal

It's been a private crash
And it's left a subtle crack

(chorus:)
We made a promise
To ourselves
That we'd never waste this time
To prove ourselves
But we hung around, and waited for
A wake-up call
To push us through the door
So much for the promises, then
So much for our promises, then

You'd think that we'd learn by now
That we can't afford
To be afraid
Because it all depends
On how we make amends
With the kids that we still
Were only yesterday

It's been a private crash
And it's left a growing crack

Chorus

And you've never closed your eyes
Because you, can't take what lies
Beyond, that lidded state
Where the light's not bright
And so you feel safe
From the outside
From what's outside

It's been a private crash
And it's left a subtle crack

Chorus

So much for the promises, then
So much for our promises, then
