Days turn to years
But in my heart
Time has stood still

And like the devil
In my soul
It tests my will

Promises,
Promises that I made
Are the promises
Promises I betrayed

I just can seem to make
The commitment it takes
'Cause the guilt in my soul
Takes it toll
Every time I awake
Every time I awake

Time hasn't etched away the pictures of your face
Haunting me always
Memories I can't erase

And the promises
Promises that I made
Are the promises
Promises I betrayed
I just can't seem to make

The commitment it takes
And a piece of my heart breaks apart
Every time I awake
Every time I awake

And the night seems so dark and so endless
My conscious won't let me sleep
The guilt that haunts me is so relentless
Cause the promise I made is the one I can't keep

Whoa promises
Promises that I made
Are the promises
Promises I betrayed
And the promise
Promises that I made
Are the promises
Promises I betrayed

I just can't seem to make
The commitment it takes
And the guilt in my soul
Takes it's toll
Every time I awake
Every time I awake
Every time I awake
[do you ever feel lonely]

    Arnold Lanni and Wolf Hassel left Sherriff to form Frozen Ghost and take a new, more modern musical direction. Almost a decade later Sherriff had an "accidental" hit pulled off an old recording, which allowed the other former-band members to reap a few extra rewards from Wolf and Arni.

    The song itself is about guilt and responsibilty for breaking a promise. It doesn't say what promise, or to who, but he can't shake the feelings.

    You should know the meaning. I'm posting the rest of the lyrics that were left out here because the "correct lyrics" button doesn't work and is covered by an ad.

    Do you ever feel lonely?
    Does your heart ever break?
    Do you ever feel lonely?
    Do you think it's a mistake?
