Promises in the Dark  Pat Benatar

[F]Never again, Isn?t that what you [Bb]said?
You?ve been [F]through this before
This time you swore you?d think with your [Bb]head
[Bb]No one, would ever have you [Dm]again
And if takin[Bb]? was gonna get done
You?d decide where and [C]when
Just when you [Dm]thin[C]k you [Bb]got it down
Your heart [F]securely tied and boun[Bb]d
BbAG A C Dm (Riff Dm
[A]Th[G]ey[F] w[Bb]his[G]pe[Bb)]r, promises in the dark
[F]Armed and ready you fought love battles in the night
But t[F]oo many opponents made you weary of the fig[Bb]ht
[Bb]Blinded by passion, you foolishly let someone [Dm]in
All the warni[Bb]ngs went off in your head
Still you had to give [C]in
Just when you thi[Dm]nk y[C]ou go[Bb]t it down
Resistance [F]no where to be f[Bb]ound
BbAG A C Dm (Riff Dm
[A]Th[G]ey[F] wh[Bb]isp[G]er[Bb)], promises in the dark
But p[Bb]romises, y[C]ou know what t[G]here for
It sounds so c[F]onvincing, but you heard it [G]before
Cause [Bb]talk is c[C]heap and you gotta be [Dm]sure
And so you [Dm]put[Dm] up[Dm] yo[Dm]ur guard
And you [C]try to be hard but your [Bb]heart says t[C]ry again[Dm]
Riff Dm Bb A G F X8
[Bb] [C] [Dm] [Dm] [Dm] [Dm] [Dm]  
[Dm] [Dm] [Dm] [Dm] [C]  
(Riff Dm B[C]b A G F Bb G Bb)
You d[F]esperately search for a way to conquer the [Bb]fear
No line of attack has been planned to fight back t[Bb]he tears
Where [Bb]brave and restless dreams are both won [Dm]and lost
On the [Bb]edge is where it seems it?s well worth [C]the cost
Just when you t[Dm]hink[C] you [Bb]got it down
Your heart in [F]pieces on the ground[Bb]
BbAG A C Dm(Riff Dm Bb
[G]Th[F]ey [Bb]whi[G]sp[Bb)]er, promises in the dark
