LyricsEdit

I am wearing a white long-sleeved button-down
The pink colors behind the clouds tonight
Mirror the softer shades of your nightgown
As the neuro-transmitters go crazy inside of me 
You swear you're leaving town 
Empty promises, empty promises

I am watching the way the wind seems to pass straight through your body
When you run your fingernail along my neck, and you spill some water on me  
You say you're as good as gone 
Well, don't look now but here comes the dawn 
Empty promises, empty promises
Empty promises, empty promises
