Promises

Calvin Harris & Sam Smith

Promises Lyrics

[Verse 1: Sam Smith]
Are you drunk enough?
Not to judge what I'm doin’
Are you high enough?
To excuse that I'm ruined
'Cause I’m ruined
Is it late enough?
For you to come and stay over
'Cause we're free to love
So tease me, hmmm

[Chorus: Sam Smith & Jessie Reyez]
I make no promises, I can't do golden rings
But I'll give you everything (tonight)
Magic is in the air, there ain't no science here
So come get your everything (tonight)
I make no promises, I can't do golden rings
But I'll give you everything (tonight)
Magic is in the air, there ain’t no science here
So come get your everything (tonight)

[Post-Chorus: Sam Smith & Jessie Reyez]
Tonight
(Your everything tonight)

[Verse 2: Sam Smith]
Is it loud enough?
’Cause my body is calling for you, calling for you
I need someone, to do the things that I do, hmmm
I'm heating up, energy’s taking control
I'm speeding up
My heartbeat's dancing alone

[Chorus: Sam Smith & Jessie Reyez]
I make no promises, I can't do golden rings
But I’ll give you everything (tonight)
Magic is in the air, there ain't no science here
So come get your everything (tonight)
I make no promises, I can't do golden rings
But I'll give you everything (tonight)
Magic is in the air, there ain't no science here
So come get your everything (tonight)

[Post-Chorus: Sam Smith & Jessie Reyez]
Tonight
(Your everything tonight)

[Bridge: Sam Smith]
'Cause I need your green light
Day and night, say that you're mine
'Cause I need your green light
Day and night, say that you're mine
Say that you're mine
Say that you're mine

[Chorus: Sam Smith & Jessie Reyez]
I make no promises, I can't do golden rings
But I'll give you everything (tonight)
Magic is in the air, there ain't no science here
So come get your everything (tonight)
I make no promises, I can't do golden rings
But I'll give you everything (tonight)
Magic is in the air, there ain't no science here
So come get your everything (tonight)

[Outro: Sam Smith]
Tonight

About “Promises”

The production of “Promises” was something of a surprise, having been publicized with only five days notice on Calvin’s and Sam’s social media accounts:

“Promises” is the third single from Harris as the lead artist in 2018, following “Nuh Ready Nuh Ready” and “One Kiss.” The song marks the first time that Harris and Smith have collaborated.

Smith tweeted that “it has always been a dream of mine to work with @calvinharris and I’m so proud and in love with this song. I had so much fun writing this tune with Calvin and @Jessiereyez and I hope you can hear that. Turn it up and let’s dance our way into tonight.”

The timing of the release came mid-way through Sam’s 2018 American tour. On stage at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, following his break-up with his boyfriend of nine months, he said to the audience;
“I know that everyone in this room right now is going through some sh-t. I know I’m going through some sh-t. And tonight I want all of us to just leave all of our worries and all of our heartache aside and let’s have some fun. Let’s sing as loud as we can.”

The song perhaps reflects his determination not be overcome by the grief evident in many of his songs and instead to relish what he loves doing; singing and song-writing.

The song peaked at #1 on the UK iTunes Chart just one day after its release.

  • Who is the voice saying "tonight"?

    I think Jessie Reyez

  • what is the meaning of this song???

    It is about casual sex, but a lot more joyful than ‘Stay With Me’. Sam is simply asking for a ‘green light’, meaning agreement to meet and enjoy the night. It is a song about the moment.

  • is it a cover?

    It is a new composition. Sam worked with Calving Harris and Jessie Reyez to write, produce and perform it.
