You made a promise

without any words

you took my hand

and asked for nothing

 

you spoke with trumpets

and cymbals on mute

you threw a parade for me

when no one could see

 

your mouth like fireworks

from miles away

a show just for me?

but you never say

 

you made promises

without giving your word

i read between the lines

of the wrong damn book

 

you made me promises

without saying a word

you took my hand

and gave me (almost) nothing

 

You broke your promises

That I never asked for

You gave me hope anyway

You gave me hope anyway
