  • So much for your promises
    They died the day you let me go
    Caught up in a web of lies
    But it was just too late to know
    I thought it was you
    Who would stand by my side

    And now you've given me, given me
    Nothing but shattered dreams, shattered dreams
    Feel like I could run away, run away
    From this empty heart

    You said you'd die for me

    Woke up to reality
    And found the future not so bright
    I dreamt the impossible
    That maybe things could work out right
    I thought it was you
    Who would do me no wrong

    But now you've given me, given me
    Nothing but shattered dreams, shattered dreams
    Feel like I could run away, run away
    From this empty heart

    You've given me, given me
    Nothing but shattered dreams, shattered dreams
    Feel like I could run away, run away
    From this empty heart

    From this empty heart
    I thought it was you who said they'd die for love

    And now you've given me, given me
    Nothing but shattered dreams, shattered dreams
    Feel like I could run away, run away
    From this empty heart

    You've given me, given me
    Nothing but shattered dreams, shattered dreams
    Feel like I could run away, run away
    From this empty heart

    Oh no no no, you said you'd die for me
    Oh oh, die for me
    So much for your promises Writer/s: Clark Datchler
