The Cranberries Promises

You’d better believe I’m coming

You’d better believe what I say

You’d better hold on to your promises

Because you bet you’ll get what you deserve.

She’s going to leave him over

She’s going take her love away

So much for your eternal vows, well

It does not matter anyway.

Why can’t you stay

Here a while

Stay here awhile

Stay with me.

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

All the promises we made

Promises we made

All the meaningless and empty words I broke

Broke broooke

Oh oh oh oh oh

All the promises we broke

Promises we broke

All the meaningless and empty words I spoke

Spoke spooooke

What of all the things that you taught me

What of all the things that you’d say

What of all your prophetic preaching

You’re just throwing it all away

Maybe we should burn the house down

Have ourselves another fight

Leave the cobwebs in the closet

‘Cause tearing them out is just not right

Why can’t you stay

Here awhile

Stay here awhile

Stay with me

Oh oh oh oh oh

All the promises we made

Promises we made

All the meaningless and empty words I prayed

Prayed praaaayed

Oh oh oh oh oh

All the promises we broke

Promises we broke

All the meaningless and empty words I spoke

Spoke Spooooke

Oh oh oh oh oh

All the promises we made

Promises we made

All the meaningless and empty words I prayed

Prayed praaaayed

Oh oh oh oh oh

All the promises we broke

Promises we broke

All the meaningless and empty words I spoke

Spoke Spooooke

Oh hey oh hey oh hey …

The Cranberries Tomorrow

I think that you’re mad,

You spend a lot of time in your head.

I know that you’re mad,

You spend a lot of time in your head.

If you could come away with me,

You should come away with me,

You should have some faith in me.

Tomorrow could be too late,

I wish I could change the day.

Tomorrow could be too late,

If only you had some faith.

Too young, too proud, too foolish,

Too young, too proud, too foolish.

You ask a lot of questions,

You have too much time on your hands.

To hell with conclusions,

Why should we make so many plans?

So you should come away with me,

You should come away with me,

You should have some faith in me.

Tomorrow could be too late,

I wish I could change the day.

Tomorrow could be too late,

If only you had some faith.

Too young, too proud, too foolish,

Too young, too proud, too foolish.

So great,

I wish I could change the date.

Tomorrow could be so great,

If only you had some faith.

Tomorrow could be so great,

I wish I could change the date.

Tomorrow could be so great,

If only you had some faith.

The Cranberries New New York

New, new, new, ah

New, new, new, ah

New new york skyline

Wounds they heal in time

Don’t crawl and don’t despair

It’s a new new york today

I look across these city streets

My heart is numb, it still beats

Nothing to say

There’s nothing to say

I look across this empty room

My heart is still in bloom

There’s nothing to say

I only can pray

New, new, new, ah

New, new, new, ah

New new york skyline

Wounds they heal in time

Don’t crawl and don’t despair

It’s a new new york today

I look across these city streets

My heart is cold it beats

30th of may

Ground zero today

New, new, new, ah

New, new, new, ah

I get down on my knees and pray

For the heroes of the day

And no comfort I can find

For the loved ones left behind

They won’t tear us apart

They won’t tear us apart

They won’t tear us apart

They won’t tear us apart

No way

New day

New day

The Cranberries Raining In My Heart

I’ve seen it all

I’ve seen it all today

I cried a tear

I tried to turn away

But it’s raining in my heart

Every time we are apart

And the sun won’t shine today

So I have to walk away

If I could fly

You know that I’d try

If I could fly

If I could fly

You know that I’d try

If I could fly

Raining in my heart

It is raining in my heart

So I’m asleep

The place where I will go

You can not come

I guess you’ll never know

Still it’s raining in my heart

Every time we are apart

And the sun won’t shine today

So I have to walk away

If I could fly

You know that I’d try

If I could fly

If I could fly

You know that I’d try

If I could fly

Rainig in my heart

It is raining in my heart

The Cranberries Shattered

I’m trying to control myself

So please don’t stand in my way

I’ve waited for the longest time

This is what I wanted in my way

Move over, move over

There’s a climax coming in my way

Move over, move over

There’s a climax coming in my way

I don’t like you, don’t compromise

Shattered by your weakness

Shattered by your smile

And I’m not very fond of you, and your lies

Shattered by your weaknesses

Shattered by your smile

All the kids are going back to school

The summer’s over it’s the golden rule

And now I’m coming out to play

So please don’t stand in my way

And all the things that seemed once to be

So important to me

Seem so trivial now that I can see

Move over, move over

There’s a climax coming my way [x2]

I don’t like you, don’t compromise

Shattered by your weakness

Shattered by your smile

And I’m not very fond of you, and your lies

Shattered by your weaknesses

Shattered by your smile

Please don’t stand in my way

The Cranberries Cordell

Once you ruled my mind,

I thought you’d always be there.

And I’ll always hold on to your face.

But everything changes in time,

And the answers are not always fair.

And I hope you’ve gone to a better place.

Cordell,

Time will tell,

They say that you’ve passed away,

And I hope you’ve gone to a better place.

Time will tell,

Time will tell,

They say that you’ve passed away,

And I know that you’ve gone to a better place.

Cordell [X7]

Your lover and baby will cry,

But your presense will always remain,

Is this how it was meant to be?

You meant something more to me,

That what many people will see,

And to hell with the endless dream.

Cordell,

Time will tell,

They say that you’ve passed away,

And I hope you’ve gone to a better place.

Time will tell,

Time will tell,

We all will depart and decay,

And we all will return to a better place.

Cordell [X7]

Na, na, na…

The Cranberries Never Grow Old

I had a dream

Strange it may seems

It was my perfect day

Open my eyes

I realize

This is my perfect day

Hope you never grow old

Hope you never grow old

Hope you never grow old

Hope you never grow old

Do-do-do-do

Birds in the sky

They look so high

This is my perfect day

I feel the breeze

I feel it is

It is my perfect day

Hope you never grow old

Hope you never grow old

Hope you never grow old

Hope you never grow old

Forever young

I hope you stay

Forever young

Do-do-do-do

The Cranberries Uncertain

Tears on your face honey,

You’re a total disgrace, oh why,

Why did you bring me here.

Oh start all over again honey,

You still treat me the same, oh why,

Why did you bring me here.

Oh you had everything,

I could ever want,

Won’t you tell me why,

Why can’t you live here.

Oh so uncertain in love,

you’re so uncertain in love,

so uncertain in love.

Driving in the car honey,

You mistook me by far, oh why,

Why did you bring me here.

[I’m uncertain about this line]

You had nothing to send, oh why,

Why did you bring me here.

The Cranberries Serendipity

Serendipity, a cosmic coincidence

Serendipity, the unfolding of events

Serendipity, that brought us to the moment that we’re in

Do you believe that this makes sense?

Could you conceive the unfolding of events

Do you believe that this is…

Serendipity, serendipity, serendipity?

Serendipity, a cosmic coincidence

Serendipity, the unfolding of events

Serendipity, that brought us to the moment that we’re in

Do you believe that this makes sense?

Could you conceive the unfolding of events

Do you believe that this is…

Serendipity, serendipity, serendipity?

Serendipity, a cosmic coincidence

Serendipity, the unfolding of events

Serendipity, that brought us to the moment that we’re in.

The Cranberries I’m Still Remembering

I’m still remembering the day I gave my life away.

I’m still remembering the time you said you’d be mine.

Yesterday was cold and bare, because you were not there.

Yesterday was cold, my story has been told.

I need your affection all the wa-ay.

The world has changed or I’ve changed in a wa-ay.

I try to remain, I’m trying not to go insa-ane.

I need your affection all the way, the way.

Get away [X6]

I’m still remembering my life before I became your wife.

I’m still remembering the pain and the mind games.

Reverse psychology never tainted me.

I didn’t sell my soul.

I didn’t sell my soul.

I need your affection all the wa-ay.

The world has changed or I’ve changed in a wa-ay.

I try to remain, I’m trying not to go insa-ane.

I need your affection all the way, the way.

They say the cream will always rise to the top.

They say that good people are always first to drop.

What of Kurt Cobain, will his presence still remain?

Remember JFK, ever saintly in a way.

Where are you now?

Where are you now?

Where are you now, I said,

Where are you no-ow?

I need your affection all the way. [X4]

All the way. [X10]
