Jordan White – No Promises lyrics

Last night I whispered to myself
That the true enemy comes from within
Cause I took another dip in your fire
And I think that I burned myself again
Yes I burned myself again

Backdrop, Philadelphia, 2003
All you needed was some oxygen
And a little bit of me
Flashback, Jersey shore, 2008
I'm running in the sand
But you're running kinda late

No promises
No promises at all
Waiting for you waiting for me
Waiting for some call
There's no promises
No promises at all

Forget all that -
I just remembered one
The day you said you fell with me
The day without the sun
I'd keep this feeling checked
If I just knew what you would say
To keep you movin' on
To keep you on your way


Driving through this city now
There's three words you once said
They picked me up they gave me something
To get outta my own head
Was something about the thunder
The way it comes up fast -
The way you'd wanna hide with me
And wait for it to pass


As the skies explode above me -
As I pulled into my lane
I knew you were the only one
To drow me in your rain
Yes you were the only one
To drown me in the rain
Cause afterall
You gave me no promises
And you kept them all
You gave me no promises
And you kept them all

You kept them all
