That marched inside her head
And how they made her dreams go bad
But oh how happy she was
How proud she was
To be fighting in the war
In the empty world

And the light begins to fade
And everything is quiet now
Feeling is gone
And the picture disappears
And everything is cold now

You promised me…
Oh you promised me…
You promised me… You promised me…
And I waited… And I waited… And I waited…
And I’m still waiting…
I thought this time i’d keep all of my promises.
