Song Meaning
Verse 1
There she lies still sleeping d
Dreaming the whole world is in her hands
What she thought was love last night
Was just the wine and the weakness in a man
Verse 2
But now the passion's gone and all that's left
Is cold gray facts and cold gray morning light
As I promptly close the door I wonder
What did I promise her last night
Verse 3
I guess I should have wakened her
And told her that I must be moving on
But I told myself the truth might hurt her
Worse than waking up to find me gone
Verse 4
But my conscience knows the truth
And it's so hard to convince myself I'm right
And as I slowly drive away
I wonder what did I promise her last night
Verse 5
I guess by now she's waking up
And packing up her things and heading home
With memories of a temporary love
She wishes never came along
Verse 6
How many one-night stands must she go through
Before she finds a love that right?
And as I'm driving down the road I wonder
What did I promise her last night
Verse 7
I guess by now she's waking up
And packing up her things and heading home
With memories of a temporary love
She wishes never came along
Verse 8
How many one-night stands must she go through
Before she finds a love that right?
And as I'm driving down the road I wonder
What did I promise her last night
