Never again, isnt that what you said
Youve been through this before
You swore, this time, youd think with your head
No one would ever have you again
And if takin was gonna get done, youd decide where and when
Just when you think you got it down
Your heart securely tied and bound
They whisper promises in the dark
Armed and ready, you fought love battles in the night
But too many opponents made you weary of the fight
Blinded by passion, you foolishly let someone in
All the warnings went off in your head, still you had to give in
Just when you think you got it down
Resistance nowhere to be found
They whisper promises in the dark
But promises you know what theyre for
It sounds so convincing, but you heard it before
Cause talk is cheap and you gotta be sure
And so you put up your guard
And you try to be hard but your heart says try again
You desperately search for a way to conquer the fear
No line of attack has been planned to fight back the tears
Where brave and restless dreams are both won and lost
On the edge is where it seems its well worth the cost
Just when you think you got it down
Your heart in pieces on the ground
They whisper promises in the dark
