Never Promise (Anyone Forever) Lyrics

I've been watching the news, and it doesn't feel safe
It seems so far removed from this slumbering place
Cat at the hearth, dog at the door
Restless as sparrows awaiting the dawn
Don't go out tonight, don't leave me alone
It doesn't feel safe in our English home
There's fear in my heart, in my ear a whisper
Are you afraid too, or is it just me?

Never promise anyone forever
I cross my heart and hope to die
You see through the whitest lie
Never promise anyone forever

Where are we travelling to, don't go out tonight
It doesn't feel safe
When I look in the mirror I don't see my face
Shut up our ears to the madness outside
We'll study old photographs and listen to tunes
It's too cold and dark, stay here by the fire
It doesn't feel safe to live with a liar

Understand how you've confused
second-hand with dead
Tell me what am I supposed to do now?
I could cry for a thousand years
Shed a thousand tears
Oh but now I fear you wouldn't believe it
