Billie — Promises lyrics

Take off those rose tinted glasses
Put away your impulsive dreams
Our story's only just started
Do you get what I mean?

Because we

Don't want to run before we walk
There's time to see us running
We should think before we talk
'Cause I feel it coming

If rules were meant to break
And love can fade away
Then we don't need to make
Promises

I've been there once before
I gotta know for sure
The hardest things to keep
Are promises

Some things are best left unspoken
Until the time is right
Some hearts are easily broken
Tempting fate with sweet lies

Don't want to run before we walk
There's time to see us running
We should think before we talk
'Cause I feel it coming

If rules were meant to break
And love can fade away
Then we don't need to make
Promises

I've been there once before
I gotta know for sure
The hardest things to keep
Are promises

Right now it's clear to see
I'm where I wanna be
I think it's safe to say
We both feel the same

Just as well as we
Got truth and honesty
Baby all you gotta do
Is show me what I mean to you

Oh yeah
Oh right

I've been here before
Got to know for sure
Making promises

Don't want to run before we walk
There's time to see us running
We should think before we talk
'Cause I feel it coming

If rules were meant to break
And love can fade away
Then we don't need to make
Promises

I've been there once before
I gotta know for sure
The hardest things to keep
Are promises

All we need is truth,
And a little bit of honesty
Don't need promises
Save me
Don't need promises
