When you told me you could only belong to yourself
I knew you lied, but I believed you
I just had to go down that road,
the lonely guy

Sleepin’ alone every night
don’t feel quite right

She’s a traveler,
she’s a woman so restless and wild,
makes me smile
Flies her own plane through the cold rain,
roamin’ with the birds,
never stops

Sleepin’ alone every night
don’t feel quite right
If only I knew how to be free like her

Daytimes I don’t feel so bad
Don’t seem to miss all the good times we had
If somethin’ don’t change I’ll have to go
Nothin’s forever I promise,
I promise

When you told me you were goin to ride your motorbike out of here,
I was jealous – wondered why I hadn’t thought of it first
and wasted all that time

Sleepin’ alone every night
don’t feel quite right
If only I knew how to be free like her
And nothin’s forever for sure
So don’t ask for more than a promise
don’t ask for more than a promise

Promise-W5
