Lyrics

Dawson

I promised you a trip to the moon
But all I've got is my thumb for to hitch-hike
And I told you I had a Rolls Royce saloon
But all I've got's an old pair of Acme's

Oh, I'm sorry Cecilia
For making you cry, for telling you lies
I'm sorry Cecilia
Celia, I miss your blue eyes
Celia, I don't want you to cry

I promised you a rainbow of gold
But all I've got is an old copper penny
I promised you a place of your own
But all I've got are dreams that are many

Oh, I'm sorry Cecilia
For making you cry, for telling you lies
I'm sorry Cecilia
Celia, I miss your blue eyes
Celia, I don't want you to cry

I promised you my love for always
But all you got is my time for a weekend
And I promised you the kingdom of heaven
But all you got is me rapidly leaving

Oh, I'm sorry Cecilia
For making you cry, for telling you lies
I'm sorry Cecilia
Celia, I miss your blue eyes
Celia, I don't want you to cry

Oh, I'm sorry Cecilia
For making you cry, for telling you lies
I'm sorry Cecilia
Celia, I miss your blue eyes
Celia, I don't want you to cry
