Promise Me You’ll Never Tell

Written in June of 1999 in Winnipeg, Manitoba

Some other time
Some other place
Somewhere in a nursery rhyme
You will find a way

Some will bring you diamonds
Some will bring you pearl
Some will bring you to the edge of your mind
Some will bring you the world

Some will give you suggestions
Some will feed you your lines
Some will answer just some of your questions
Some alone, you must find

It’s all I can do not to spend my time with you
It’s all I can do not to be afraid
But given the situation what else were we to do
What else could we say?

What else could we say?

So here’s to your new life
Here’s to mine as well
Here’s to another empty night
Promise me you’ll never tell

Promise me you’ll never tell
