66 promises

(...)

Is it not what you thought it would be?

Is it not what you wanted it to be?
Was I not what you thought I would be?
Is it not what you wanted it to be?

60 mouths talking
But making no sense
Of life and of liberty
And the pursuit of happiness
Waiting for something
To smash a few holes
In the wall of good fortune
And the windows to a outer world

And 66 promises
They came with a kiss
Provided a meaning
Now I see how it really is

And it's not what I thought it would be
And it's not what I wanted it to be
And it's not what I thought it would be
And it's not what I wanted it to be


P.J. Harvey
