About A Promise

"A Promise" is the fourth single by Echo & the Bunnymen and was released on 10 July 1981. It stayed on the UK Singles Chart for four weeks and peaked at number 49. Apart from the Australian-only release of "Over the Wall" later in the year, "A Promise" is the only single to have been released from the band's second album, Heaven Up Here (1981). The b-side to both the 7" and 12" versions of the single is "Broke My Neck", which was recorded at Tistedal Studios in Tistedal, Norway on 7 June 1981. On the 7" disc, "Broke My Neck" is referred to as a "live" version but it is, in fact, an edit of the longer 12" studio version. The Belgian release of the 7" contains the extra track "Do It Clean", which had previously been the b-side of 1980's "The Puppet" and would again be a b-side on 1984's "The Killing Moon".

You said something will change
We were all dressed up
Somewhere to go
No sign of rain
But something will change
You promised

You said nothing will change
We were almost near
Almost far
Down came the rain
But nothing will change
You promised

A promise a promise a promise

It's exactly the same
You said
It's always the same
But I'll make it change
Into something the same
I promise

A promise a promise a promise

Light on the waves
Light on the waves
Light on the waves
Light on the waves
A promise a promise a promise a promise
(Light on the water)
(We could sail on forever) a promise
A promise
(There's light on the water)
(We could sail on forever) a promise
(There's light on the water) a promise
(There's light on the water) a promise
(We could sail on forever) a promise
(There's Light on the water) a promise
(There's Light on the water) a promise
(We could sail on forever)

Echo & the Bunnymen

Echo & the Bunnymen are an English post-punk band, formed in Liverpool in 1978.

By 1980, Pete de Freitas joined as the band's drummer, and their debut album, Crocodiles, met with critical acclaim and made the UK Top 20.
