Violent Femmes - Promise Lyrics

Y'know that I want your loving,
but my logic tells me that it aint never gonna happen,
and then my defenses say I didn't want it anyway,
but you know sometimes I'm a liar.
Could you ever want me to love you?
Could you ever want me to care?
Disregard my nervousness,
please ignore my vacant stares,
'cause just what I've been through,
is nothing like where I'm going to.

Give me some sign to pursue,
a promise,
and you're unhappy.
...This is only a guess...

Do you know what it's like to hate
when it's way down deep inside?
Oh god, I hate what's been done to my life.
I could rule the pain,
I could rule the night,
or would I ruin my salvation,
ruin my mind.
Rule your pains,
rulers of the night,
ruin your salvation,
ruin your mind.

Y'know that I want your loving,
but then Mr Logic tells me that it aint never gonna happen,
and then my defenses say I didn't want it anyway,
but you know sometimes I'm a liar.
Could you ever want me to love you?
Could you ever want me to care?
Disregard my nervousness,
please ignore my vacant stares,
'cause just what I've been through,
is nothing like where I'm going to.

Give me some sign to pursue,
a promise,
a promise,
and you're unhappy,
and you're unhappy,
and you're unhappy,
and you're unhappy.
...This is only a guess...
