#SLS for 3/22/20 ~ “Promises, Promises”

Jim prompts us with vow/oath/promise. I picked “Promises, Promises” because it’s from the 80s. Classic by one or two hit wonder Naked Eyes. New Wave was a thing for a while. Duh, Jill. They know that. More at the Wiki.

“Promises, Promises” Writers Peter Byrne and Rob Fisher

Never had a doubt in the beginning
Never a doubt
Trusted you true in the beginning
I loved you right through

Arm in arm we laughed like kids
At all the silly things we did

You made me promises, promises
Knowing I’d believe
Promises, promises
You knew you’d never keep

Second time around, I’m still believing
The words that you said
You said you’d always be here
“In love forever” still repeats in my head

You can’t finish what you start
If this is love it breaks my heart

You made me promises, promises
You knew you’d never keep
Promises, promises
Why do I believe?

Arm in arm we laughed like kids

At all the silly things we did
But you can’t finish what you start
If this is love it breaks my heart

You made me promises, promises
You knew you’d never keep
Promises, promises
Why do I believe
All of your promises
You knew you’d never keep
Promises, promises
Why do I believe?

Promises
Promises
Promises
Promises
Promises

      1. I feel the same way. 50’s and 60’s too even though most of it was before I was born. It is what I listened to as a kid. Both country and rock n roll. When your grandparents are country folk and your mom is a huge Elvis fan, well…need I say more? 😊

      2. Love that! My mom love Elvis too. She had a full size Elvis poster hanging in her bedroom after her divorce from my dad. Totally we retro teenage all over again. I was 10. 😊

  1. I saw the name of the song andthought “oh great, Jilly’s picked the same song I did.” Fortunately, I picked the one by Baharach and David…

    I always thought ti was Hall & Oates, for some reason. Anyway, great song!

    1. Glad you liked it. I remembered the words but not who sung it. That I had to look up. They do sound a little like Hall & Oates. Now I have a “Rich Girl” ear worm 😂
