Don'T Promise Me

Don't promise me you'll give it.
Just give it and see me overwhelmed,
And surprised.
Don't you promise me you''ll give it.
Just give it and see in my eyes,
Excitement and delight.

Don't you promise I will get it,
What you know I want the most.
Don't you promise I will get it,
My wish to hold you close.
Closer than most.

My eyes are open wide,
When they should be shut tight.
Feeling so secure about us.
And with a trust.

My eyes are open wide,
Thinking where you might be.
And who you're with and why,
When you're not here with me.

Don't you promise you will visit.
To then not call me at all.
Don't dare...
Say you are committed.
And I find I'm not the one...
You admit this.
But to someone else you're with.

Don't you promise you will give it.
Just give it and see me overwhelmed,
And surprised.
Don't you promise me you''ll give it.
Just give it and see in my eyes,
Excitement and delight.
Even if to me you lie.

Don't you promise you will visit.
To then not call me at all.
Don't,
You say you are committed.
And I find I'm not the one...
You admit this,
But to someone else you're with.

Don't...
Promise me.
Just show up I'll forgive your lies.
Don't promise me.
I will accept your alibis.
Don't promise me,
That I am on your list of fools.
I know.
And you do too to prove it true.
I know.
And you do too to prove it true.
I know.
And you do this to know it too!
