Never again, isn't that what you said?
You've been through this before
An' you swore this time you'd think with your head
No one, would ever have you again
And if takin' was gonna get done
You'd decide where and when
Just when you think you got it down
Your heart securely tied and bound
They whisper, Promises In The Dark

Armed and ready, you fought love battles in the night
But too many opponents made you weary of the fight
Blinded by passion, you foolishly let someone in
All the warnings went off in your head
Still you had to give in

Just when you think you got it down
Resistance nowhere to be found
They whisper, Promises In The Dark

But promises, you know what they're for
It sounds so convincing, but you heard it before
Cause talk is cheap and you gotta be sure
And so you put up your guard
And you try to be hard
But your heart says try again

You desperately search for a way to conquer the fear
No line of attack has been planned to fight back the tears
Where brave and restless dreams are both won and lost
On the edge is where it seems it's well worth the cost
Just when you think you got it down
Your heart in pieces on the ground
They whisper, Promises In The -- Dark

    After falling in love too many times, and getting hurt, one eventually becomes dissillusioned, and prays to never have those horrible feelings of loss again. However, that special someone comes along and breaks down all your barriers where you are open and vulnerable, yet again, no matter how hard you try to resist... So you fall in love again, hoping that this one won't hurt you, yet again, and make it even harder next time. Great song, and, imho, geraldo is one of rocks greatest unsung guitar hero's. His phrasing in his solo's is precise, and impeccable. And, pat's voice goes without saying. Graet song, band, and effort. Not just for the 80's, but timeless. :)
