promises lyrics – eric clapton

i don’t care if you never come home.
i don’t mind if you just
keep on rollin’away on a distant sea
cuz i don’t love you and you don’t love me.

you cause a commotion when you come to town

you give ’em a smile and they melt
and your lovers and friends are all good and fine
but i don’t like yours and you don’t like mine.

la la la …
i don’t care what you’re doin’ at night oh
i don’t care how you get your delights
i’m gonna leave it alone
i’ll just let it be
i don’t love you and you don’t love me.

i got a problem
can you relate?
i got a woman
callin’ love hate.
we made a vow
we’d always be friends.
how could we know that promises end?

la la la …

i tried to love you for years upon years
but you refused to take me for real
it’s time you saw what i want you to see
that i’d still love you if you’d just love me.

i got a problem
can you relate?
i got a woman
callin’ love hate.
we made a vow
we’d always be friends.
how could we know that promises end?

la la la …
