So much for your promises
They died the day you let me go
Caught up in a web of lies
But it was just too late to know

I thought it was you
Who would stand by my side

And now you've given me, given me
Nothing but shattered dreams, shattered dreams,
Feel like I could run away, run away
(From this empty heart)

You said you'd die for me

Woke up to reality
And found the future not so bright
I dreamt the impossible
That maybe things could work out right

I thought it was you
Who would do me no wrong

And now you've given me, given me
Nothing but shattered dreams, shattered dreams,
Feel like I could run away, run away
(From this empty heart)

(From this empty heart)

I thought it was you who said you'd die for love

And now you've given me, given me
Nothing but shattered dreams, shattered dreams,
Feel like I could run away, run away
(From this empty heart)

Oh no no no - you said you'd die for me
Oh oh, oh oh, die for me
So much for your promises

    He's writing about perhaps being in love - thinking that he's found the one - but the person disappointed him and left. Now he's brokenhearted.
