Songfacts®:

  • Promise was the follow-up to the successful album Diamond Life, and sticks closely to what made the prior LP a big success. This song is similar to "Smooth Operator," in which an urbane but essentially innocent woman is in love with a scummy man who used her. In this song, she sees him for what he is and has walked out on him, but still she loves and misses him. >>
