Empty Plans

In the bar now the old crowd is gathering
stepping out on thursday night
drinking down their bitter pain and waiting for a sight
in their eyes you can see all the sorrow
in their talk you hear the gloom
breathing smoke instead of air you might think your in a tomb
one more round and your head starts to spinning
but you sure don't feel the pain
speaking thoughts you shouldn't say, there's nothing here to gain

all those promises are made to be broken
empty plans don't come true
would you even remember tomorrow
what you told me tonight, if I reminded you

I could listen to another hard luck story
I could smile and nod my head
but I can't repair the past even after what you said
would you mind if I didn't show this evening
could you bend some other ear
I'm sure you'll find someone else who'd really like to hear

all those promises are made to be broken
empty plans don't come true
would you even remember tomorrow
what I told you tonight, if I reminded you

There's a ship on the lake in the distance
there's a cool breeze in the air
and the blood within my veins is making me aware
every moment I see here before me, every thought I ever make
they're chances I could loose, they're chances I could take

all those promises are made to be broken
empty plans don't come true
would you even remember tomorrow
what I told you tonight, if I reminded you
