Yesterday's promise got you everything I had
You took all the best of me and now you call me bad
You made me careless with the pretty things you'd say
Now yesterday's promise makes me crying today.

Yesterday's promise made the fire within me burn
Today there's only bitter ashes everywhere I turn
Tomorrow may be better when the hurt has gone away
But yesterday's promise makes me crying today.

--- Instrumental ---

Yesterday's promise made just one thing in mind
But to a girl it sounds like love when it's love she hopes to find
Tomorrow I may find it when the hurt has gone away
But yesterday's promise makes me crying today...
