No, not yet, please

If you don't mind

Tonight I'd like you to hold me

And tell me

For the hundredth time

That we will succeed

Because the closer we get

The more frightened I am

Then I will

And so I did, over and over

I spun a tale of gladness and joy

And made promises there was no way

I could possibly keep but it didn't matter

It didn't matter

If we failed, no one in the world

Would care that for once

I hadn't kept my promise

And you know my promises for lies

But still the words comfort you nonetheless

At length you sleep

I lay awake and silently prayed

Someone to turn my lies to truth

Last night's false promises tasted like ashes in my mouth
