MUNA – Promise lyrics
[Verse 1]
I told a lot of lies
And called it a compromise
To keep you in your seat
I was so afraid to lose
But the things that I did to you
You would never do to me

[Chorus]
Why do I
Why do I do it
Why do I do it
You wanna
Hold my hand I make a fist
A false promise
And even if you said you would forgive me
I don’t know if I could ever say I’m sorry

[Post-Chorus]
I don’t know if I—
(You said you would)
I don’t know if I can
I don’t know if I—
(You said you would)
I don’t know if I can

[Verse 2]
So I look at you now
Bruised and broken down
By what you thought was love
You tell me you want to stay
& you wanna watch me change
But I’m scared so I tell you to fuck off

[Chorus]
Why do I
Why do I do it
Why do I do it
You wanna
Hold my hand I make a fist
A false promise
And even if you said you would forgive me
I don’t know if I could ever say I’m sorry

[Post-Chorus]
I don’t know if I—
(You said you would)
I don’t know if I can
I don’t know if I—
(You said you would)
I don’t know if I can

[Bridge]
Mean hearted girls will kill their loves to hurt themselves
They can’t believe that they deserve anything else
And even if you said you know that I’m sorry
I don’t know if I could ever forgive me

[Post-Chorus x2]
I don’t know if I—
(You said you would)
I don’t know if I can
I don’t know if I—
(You said you would)
I don’t know if I can

[Outro]
I told a lot of lies
And called it a compromise
To keep you
(You said you would)
