Tomorrow never happens

So I promised you today

Yesterday has been interred

In a ground of blood and clay

I promised you a heartbeat

But thrust the dagger deep

The black roses that I gave you

Tore you, scarlet tears weep

I promised you my love

I tore your heart out

I tied your tongue with kisses

So I wouldn't hear your shouts

I promised you a wedding ring

I divorced you at the alter

I was the weakened crutch you needed

In the times you thought you'd falter

I promised you everafter

I gave you a mere blink

How were you to know I promised lies

I married my new bride, drink

I promised you forever

I promised to fill your longing

I promised you everything

I promised you nothing
