The Promise
Those tears on a gaping voice
Who's stretching arms match the hunger of mine
These lips will they never join
But always draw me closer and further entwined

With a promise dealer, understand all freedoms fade away
To a point of view where many different pathways meet
And we're standing on this precipice with nothing much to save
But the deep blue screams of falling dreams with our next move

Heaven hide your eyes
(Heaven hide your eyes)
Heaven's eyes will never dry
(They will never dry)

The shades of a thousand steel
Come flashing by my face in the fury of war
In desolation and abandoned fields
The hungry make their stand when they'll stand for no more

Hear the passion in their voices, see the heaven in their eyes
(Heaven in their eyes)
Their hopes and schemes are waiting dreams of less than paradise
(Less than paradise)
And sometimes we make promises we never mean to keep
(Never mean to keep)
And blackmail is the only deal a promise dealer sees

Heaven hide your eyes
(Heaven hide your eyes)
Heaven's eyes will never dry
(They will never dry)

Heaven hide your eyes
(Heaven hide your eyes)
Heaven's eyes will never dry
(They will never dry)

Heaven hide your eyes
(Heaven hide your eyes)
Heaven's eyes will never dry
(They will never dry)

Heaven hide your eyes
(Heaven hide your eyes)
Heaven's eyes will never dry
(They will never dry)

Heaven hide your eyes
(Heaven hide your eyes)
Heaven's eyes will never dry
(They will never dry)
