Never again, isn't that what you said?
An' you swore this time you'd think with your head
And if taking was gonna get done
Just when you think you got it down
They whisper, promises in the dark
Armed and ready, you fought love battles in the night
Blinded by passion, you foolishly let someone in
Still you had to give in
Just when you think you got it down
They whisper, promises in the dark
But promises, you know what they're for
'Cause talk is cheap and you gotta be sure
And you try to be hard

No line of attack has been planned to fight back the tears
On the edge is where it seems it's well worth the cost
Your heart in pieces on the ground
