PROMISES (Music & Lyrics: Paul Cargnello) Promises, they're all meant be kept every time that I've broken one, I swear to you I wept Promises, all the hurting is done upfront trying to be the pick of the litter when really your the runt Promises, are not just more than just that every tear I shed, I kept hidden under my hat Promises, they'll expose what' underneath like behind every pear of lips there's a mouth full of teeth My word and my pen are as tough as they come they put a hole right through the frame like a weapon I promise you the mind I promise you the world I promise you the body, I promise that it twirls I promise to be honest and if I promise you you're right I promise that I lied, I promise not tonight I promise you your lucky I promise you've got game I promise you don't deserve it, but it's a promise all the same I promise you the money I promise you respect, I promise the material things will decay in their neglect I promise you no mercy I promise to stay alert I promise you the truth, I just can't promise it won't hurt
PROMISES (VF) aka PROMESSES (Paroles: Paul Cargnello & Samuele Mandeville Musique: Paul Cargnello) Promises, Quand tout volera en fumée On soufflera la poussière Sans cesser de danser Promises, Quand les murs vont s’écrouler On rattrapera les morceaux Pour tous les recoller Promises, Si l’bateau vient à couler On sautera à l’eau On apprendra à nager Promises, Quand la haine voudra gagner On s’aimera encore plus fort Sans cesser de danser Nos corps et notre desir d'y coire Vaincront la noirceur du monde Ouuuuh comme un éclair J’te promets un nouveau jour J’te promets de la musique J’te promets chacun son tour J’te promets c’est magnifique J’te promets une nouvelle danse J’te promets tout le monde ensemble J’te promets de suivre le rythme Si tu m’ promets pas trop vite J’te promets que ça s’ra beau J’te promets que ça s’ra grand J’te promets ça s’ra nouveau Je le promets à nos enfants J’te promets le printemps J’te promets les bourgeons J’te promets de prendre le temps J’te promets que ça s’ra bon J’te promets qu’on gagne au jeu J’te promets un nouveau couplet J’te promets que ça s’ra mieux Mais j’te promets pas que ça sera parfait
