John Farnham – Hard Promises To Keep lyrics

K rhodes

I'm tryin' to believe in forever
And I'm tryin' to believe in
The little jewel box life we lead
Babe I get so close sometimes
All I really know is I believe
That we've been makin' hard promises to keep

You want me to believe in forever
Do you know how tight I'm holding
Just to keep my grip on yesterday
But I'm trying hard to see the pretty pictures
That you paint for me
You know how tight I'm holding
To hard promises to keep

Promises are like little diamonds
Promises are like little hearts you meant to give away
I thought you'd want them back someday
I kept them for you anyway
But I know when I've been given
Hard promises to keep
