(Verse)
I could play your dirty game
Spin a web around your name
Keep my feelings for myself yea
And I could look into your eyes
Tell you all those pretty lies
But I don’t play those games so well

(Pre-Chorus)
‘Cause if I take a rick gotta risk it all
I believe that even if I fall
Never ever let love bring me down
I will never turn around

(Chorus – part 1)
Promises made for fools
But I crushed my heart and burned it
Promise and trusted in you
‘Cause I was way above

(Chorus – part 2)
Our promises made of dreams
Still we don’t have much time
You still build and tear down it seems
But I’ll be around, hear my part

(Verse)
I used to hide beneath my skin
Watch the air, let’s dive right in
Scared of shattering my dreams, yea
I’ve been waiting on the edge
Steady growing through my hair
Finally I dived in deep

(Pre-Chorus)
‘Cause if I take a rick gotta risk it all
I believe that even if I fall
Never ever let love bring me down
I will never turn around

(Chorus – part 1)
Promises made for fools
But I crushed my heart and burned it
Promise and trusted in you
‘Cause I was way above

(Chorus – part 2)
Our promises made of dreams
Still we don’t have much time
You still build and tear down it seems
But I’ll be around, hear my part

(Bridge)
Oh no, good intentions
It’s sending my heart in the wrong direction
All my good intentions
Always sending my heart in the wrong direction
All those good intentions
People saying girl you better change direction
All my good intentions
I guess I’ll better get some salutation

(Chorus – part 1)
Promises made for fools
But I crushed my heart and burned it
Promise and trusted in you
‘Cause I was way above

(Chorus – part 2)
Our promises made of dreams
Still we don’t have much time
You still build and tear down it seems
But I’ll be around, hear my part

(Chorus – part 1)
Promises made for fools
But I crushed my heart and burned it
Promise and trusted in you
‘Cause I was way above

(Chorus – part 2)
Our promises made of dreams
Still we don’t have much time
You still build and tear down it seems
But I’ll be around, hear my part

(Bridge)
Oh no, good intentions
It’s sending my heart in the wrong direction
All my good intentions
Always sending my heart in the wrong direction
All those good intentions
People saying girl you better change direction
All my good intentions
I guess I’ll better get some salutation
