Promises, Promises by Incubus

Official Music Video and Lyrics

*Baby could I be the rabbit in your hat? I’d swing if you’d hand me, hand me the bat



I’m only 23 for another hour, give or take
I’m a fan of yours and I need a good mistake
I’m not a sinner or preacher, all I have is slight of hand
I do magic tricks for all the boys in the band

Baby could I be the rabbit in your hat?
I’d swing if you’d hand me, hand me the bat

I’m on the road of least resistance
I’d rather give up than give in to this
So promise me only one thing, would you?
Just don’t ever make me promises
No promises
No No promises

I’ve never done this before, promises, promises
But I’m enjoying the illusion and the things my body says
Now you see me, now you don’t, oh how well you disappear
What are you running from and may I interfere?

Baby could I be the rabbit in your hat?
I’d swing if you’d hand me, hand me the bat
Baby could I be the rabbit in your hat?
I’d swing if you’d hand me, hand me the bat

I’m on the road of least resistance
I’d rather give up than give in to this
So promise me only one thing, would you?
Just don’t ever make me promises
No promises
No No No promises
No No No promises

I’m on the road of least resistance
I’d rather give up than give in to this
So promise me only one thing, would you?
Just don’t ever make me promises
No promises
No No No promises
No No No promises
Noooo No promises

I wonder how long the song writer to compose the lyrics of this... it seems personal. If not, then he must have had a harder time to jot down lyrics from others' experiences.
