All about Eve - Never promise (anyone forever)

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 save 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 - 4x
I cross my heart and hope to die
You see through the whitest lie
Never promise anyone forever - 2x

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 your 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 ...
Tel 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


From: All about Eve (1987).

I've cited this song in my Ph.D. Thesis.
