    Don’t make me promises
    You don’t intend to keep
    Don’t paint a pretty picture
    Of love and forever
    With washable water colors
    Don’t whisper false hope in my ear
    In the middle of the night
    Make your actions stronger than your words
    Comfort me when my heart aches
    Hold me when my soul cries
    Kiss the hurt and make it go away
    Look me in the eyes
    And tell me you love me
    And mean it
    Keep me close
    Keep me safe
    Keep me swaddled in love
    Don’t make me promises
    You don’t intend to keep

    promise made promise kept
    from da heart to da lover

    I will love u right
    forever hold u tight
    keep u safe throughout da night

    promise made promise kept

    I won't paint a picture of water fade
    but true color of what we made
    their will be no pain
    from the stain of my words
    da whispers of night
    is da caressness of my light
    give da love one so need
    comfort is what i'll feed
    no false hope
    i'm no joke
    just relax for my gentle stroke
    of love from above
    promise made ...................

    it's no joke how so many get caught up in the mist of myth
    from the promise one so makes and then breaks to a heart
    felt matter that shatters da dream of tenderly love
    false hope to be caressed so many whispers da words yet
    can't fulfill da reality of love i'm feelin dis piece deeply within.
