Alex Lifeson – Promise lyrics

One more glass
A million more days
One more smoke
Release me from my ways

Break the mold
Break your back
Break the promise you made

Seek the world now
Don't look back
Make your promise today

Leave the safety
Leave this life
Leave before it's too late

It's your only chance
Don't pretend romance
Keep the new promise you made

What if I wasn't so scared?
Why can't I be brave?
I've forgotten all that we've shared
You can't give me what I crave

One more glass
Take another pill
One more day
I feel like I could kill

What if you let me walk away?
You think it's me who needs to be saved
Your life a tragic, self centered play
You never gave me what I craved

What I want
You can never give
What you want
My dead life to live

Break the mold
Break your back
Break the promise you made

Seek the world now
Don't look back
Make your promise today

Leave the safety
Leave this life
Leave before it's too late

It's your only chance
Don't pretend romance
Keep the new promise you made

Break the mold
Break your back
Break the promise you made

Leave the safety
Leave this life
Leave before it's too late

Seek the world now
Don't look back
Make your promise today

Keep the promise you made
Keep the promise you made
