Promises Broken

Here is a song by Soul Asylum from the “Let Your Dim Light Shine” Album, it is a good song, though sad, it has an uplifting feel.   I remember hearing this song for the first time, cruising on Mundi Street, trying to find a smile.  It was helpful. I fel a little sappy, I promise not to make a habit of this, any way…Check it out  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJV2UoeBIas

Promises Broken
Streets are filled with broken glass
You get buried by the past
Give me just a little taste
Lay this mess to waste
Take me home

My mind is racing take me home
My body’s achin’so alone
I’ll make you want to stay with me
Befriended by the enemy
One more time

And every little thing about this tells me
Nothing out there is ever gonna help me
All these words that I hear spoken just promises broken now

Looking outside from my window sill
Throw another coin in the wishing well
You’ll never find what you’re looking for
Fifteen miles
Your dim light shines from so far away
Your sad smile
Is all I see when I say

That every little thing about this tells me
Nothing out there is ever gonna help me
All these words that I hear spoken just promises broken now

From the Hotel Satellite
Don’t look like you’re living right
Here’s a deal you can’t refuse
You ain’t got as much to lose

Can you tell your troubles to
Someone who won’t laugh at you
It’s all right
And as I watch you walk away
Hope a part of you would stay
It’s all right

And every little thing about this tells me
Nothing out there is ever gonna help me
All these words that I hear spoken just promises broken now
