Promises Lyrics

Play "Promises"
on Amazon Music

You got me so wild,
How can I ever deny,
You got me so high,
So high I cannot feel the fire.
And you keep telling me,
Telling me that you’ll be sweet,
And you’ll never want to leave my side,
As long as I don’t break these...

Promises,...

    My Interpretation is that is Neros interpretation on society, being part of the system and that it supposed to be good for humankind, making everything easy - Get a job have nice food, nice house perfect existence "Sweet/you got me so high", but overall our instinct knows better and makes us rebel against order - Hence the not taking the pill (Which is the crap all of us listen to and either go along with or deny from the mouth of those in power).

    The promises are wasted because before we were blind and promised to follow the regime, but we've come to realise that their wasted. Make sence dudes? :D

    Its about falling for someone you never expected you would. And being worried that you will break the promises you have made to them and they will be gone

    I feel as though it's about a girl who is in love with a guy but I'd unsure of whether he feels the same way about her. "And you keep telling me that you'll be sweet" is like he makes it look like he likes her back, "they still feel all so wasted on myself" she is unsure of whether he is too good for her. I also believe that the songs people really feel are the ones that they completely relate to in their circumstance, this one particularly for me.

    **Explicit please review with someone over 16** "You got me so high" she is drugged into 'bad things', "you said you'd be sweet, as long as i dont break these.... promises" he wont hurt her or her family if she doesn't tell. "They still feel all so wasted on myself" either way things end up bad, take the beating or take the rape.

    In the verse "As long as I don’t break these", she seems to sing "things" instead of "these". Just a thought.

    I think it's about a girl who is in love with a guy, but she's not sure about her feelings. She doesn't know if she deserves his love, if she's able to keep these promises.

    I think the song shows that she is deeply inlove but can't promise the promises her lover has asked of her . Like will u promise me to stay with me forever and will u marry me one day. promises sometimes you don't now if you can make

    I hear it as a plea to God. He's got her so high (feeling protected) that she can't even feel the fire. (Hell) But she's not worthy of the protection. She can't keep with the commandments, & therefore the promises are wasted on her.

    I'd say it's about dependence specialy negative dependence in general

    Its based on love and you can't brake the promises. But its about being addicted to a drug and addicted to love with promises of so much. She is talking about him making her feel so good. And u cant brake the promises that they made. And u cant waste those promises y make to someone. Even if someone is controlling you!

    she felt the promises were wasted on her, because he had no promises made by him.

    For me the song is about a girl whos is madly in love with a guy. Shes so crazy about him, she doesnt feel the fire or see the problems/difficulties in the relationship. And the guy puts conditions or makes her promise many things so he can stay with her, but in the end she feels wasted because of all the promises she made.

    Is it just me or does this music video totally remind you of the Harrison Bergeron short story, literally its the same idea. Just a thought.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    this song means a lot of things to everyone. but for me it tells a story of a lover who kept all promises of being faithful and always being there, but at the end its all an illusion and the one who kept the promises feels wasted because she waited and did everything right and realized it wasnt worth it and now is depressed.

    I connect to the song Because it talks about how the promises are wasted on her...like she's not worth them. Low self-esteem/worth.

    It's about how protecting the ones you love and not risking relationships (if you haven't seen the music video, it really helps, at the beginning a dialouge sequence goes something like this
    Woman: It's so beautiful. I feel, I can't even explain this.
    Man: You must stop this!
    Woman: I can't, I won't,
    which shows how their forbidden love makes her feel amazing but their relationship will be risked if she rebels and brings attention to thier situation) seen the rebelling against something can make you feel "high", but it can be dangerous, however free will is stronger than opression. In terms of the music video, it shows a dystopian future where regimneted mind-controlling drug consumption is forced (promises to the society), however a woman decides to rebel against the system and spits out her pills, allowing her to feel affection (It's so beautiful. I feel, I can't even explain this.).
