​Turned Out Lies

This song is by Spirit Of The West and appears on the album Save This House (1990).

I remember a promise for a new tomorrow
I remember a promise to save our youth
Well I remember security for our aging
But when you made the pudding
You left out all the proof

I seem to recall you mentioning the word hope
I seem to recall you mentioning solutions
You made it sound like an angel had landed on our doorstep
Gave us more like two steps back than any evolution

Your empty promises are filling people's heads
You have us crawling round in circles
Instead of walking straight ahead
I remember what you passed for truth
Turned out lies and stay here
Yes I remember what you said
Yeah I remember what you said

I made you a promise for a new tomorrow
I made you a promise to share our youth
I promised you security through our aging
But when I made the pudding love
I left out all the proof

I seem to recall mentioning the word trust
I seem to recall mentioning devotion
Made it sound like god's gift had landed on your doorstep
Gave you more like two steps back than any evolution

My empty promises were filling up your head
I had us crawling round in circles
Instead of walking straight ahead
I remember what you took for truth
It turned out lies and stay here
Yes I remember what I said
Yeah I remember what I said
I remember...

Yes, promise promise here's a little promise
It's the love and that I keep for sure
Promise promise here comes the promise
It's the love and that I keep for sure
Promise promise here's a little promise
It's the love and that I keep for sure
Promise promise here's a little promise
It's the love...

I remember, I remember
I remember, I remember

I know you're through with broken promises
I know you're through with broken plans and broken dreams
I know you're through with broken promises
I know you're through with broken promises
