never promise lyrics – all about eve

i’ve been watching the news,
and it doesn’t feel safe,
it seems so far removed this slumbering place,
cat at the hearth… dog at the door,
restless as sparrows awaiting the dawn,
don’t go out tonight,
don’t leave me alone,
it doesn’t feel safe in our english home,
there’s fear in my heart,
in my ear a whisper,
are you afriad too, or is it just me?

never promise anyone forever,
i cross my heart and hope to die,
you see through the whitest lie,
never promise anyone forever,

where are we travelling to,
don’t go otut tonight,
it doesn’t feel safe,
when i look in the mirror i don’t see my face,
shut up our ears to the madness outside,
we’ll study old photographs,
and listen to tunes,
it’s too cold and dark,
stay here by the fire,
it doesn’t feel safe,
to live with a liar,

understand how you’ve confused second-hand with dead…
tell me what am i supposed to do now?
i could cry for a thousand years,
shed a thousand tears,
oh but now i fear you wouldn’t believe it.
