Promises In The Dark

Pat Benatar

 FBb
 Never again, Isn't that what you said?
 F
You've been through this before
 Bb
This time you swore you'd think with your head
 BbDm
 No one, would ever have you again
 Bb
And if takin' was gonna get done
 C
You'd decide where and when
 DmCBb
Just when you think you got it down
 FBb
Your heart securely tied and bound
BbAG A C Dm (Riff Dm
 AGFBbGBb
 They whisper, promises in the dark

 F
 Armed and ready you fought love battles in the night
 FBb
But too many opponents made you weary of the fight
 BbDm
 Blinded by passion, you foolishly let someone in
 Bb
All the warnings went off in your head
 C
Still you had to give in

 DmCBb
Just when you think you got it down
 FBb
Resistance no where to be found
BbAG A C Dm (Riff Dm
 AGFBbGBb
 They whisper, promises in the dark
 BbCG
But promises, you know what there for
 FG
It sounds so convincing, but you heard it before
 BbCDm
Cause talk is cheap and you gotta be sure
 DmDmDmDm
And so you put up your guard

 CBbCDm
And you try to be hard but your heart says try again  
LEAD
Riff Dm Bb A G F X8
 C
 (Riff Dm Bb A G F  Bb G Bb)

 FBb
You desperately search for a way to conquer the fear
 Bb
No line of attack has been planned to fight back the tears
 BbDm
Where brave and restless dreams are both won and lost
 BbC
On the edge is where it seems it's well worth the cost
 DmCBb
Just when you think you got it down
 FBb
Your heart in pieces on the ground 
BbAG A C Dm(Riff Dm Bb
 GFBbGBb
 They whisper, promises in the dark
