about

“I have to ask. I absolutely loved you, Norell and Zander, in that video that you did with the couples where Zander was finding these other women and making love to them, and you were in the background and you were, you were like this vision. What was the concept of that? I absolutely love that thing, and if that was a short film or movie, I'd watch that!”
- Lawrence the Blue Eyed Emperor

"Ambitious production! Basically a feature film reduced to a music video. Good work you guys!"
- Artist Brant Kingman

The music video for this song is highly controversial. Norell had a vision and directed the music video. Zander and Norell both act in the video and together they edited and produced it according to Norell's vision. It could be said that the character Zander portrays doesn't paint him in the best light. They both received flack from and even lost some friends because they managed to strike a nerve. One of them got really upset and was unable to separate acting from reality. The music video for "Promises" managed to make some people feel, and this was TBF's humble goal. The Band Famous aspires to move and inspire others. The pleasure is ours.

The music video for "Promises" is #NSFW and is intended for mature audiences. Thank you for listening, and thank you for watching.

lyrics

Those eyes, no lies.
Right to the heart of things.
If not, cut ties.
No time for broken dreams.

Promises.
Promises.

Who you are...
The way you say...

Your words will go as far,
Momentum of yesterday.

Promises, Promises.
Promises, Promises.

Who you are, the way you say.
Who you are, the way you say.

Your words will go as far,
Momentum of yesterday.

Who you are, the way you say.
Your words will go as far,
Momentum of yesterday.

And if you follow through
In all matters of the heart.

Who you are, the way you say
Who you are, the way you say
Who you are, the way you say
Who you are, the way you say

Your words will go as far.

Momentum of yesterday.

Your words will go as far.

Momentum of yesterday.

And if you follow through.
And if you follow through.
In all matters of the heart.
Matters of the heart.
Matters of the heart.

You will be tried and true.
You will be tried and true.
Love and light don't fall apart.
Love and light don't fall apart.
