Lyrics: The Promise

The Promise©2014

By Havilah Tower

Buy The Promise on CD Baby

He goes on living like he knows to do

Getting his kicks from a morning cup, dose of the news

Anything to pick him up, to do the trick

He still holds on to those words she said,

in the back of a car many years ago

They were so in love

She’d wait for him, for how long he don’t know

Many years go by

He moves on with his life

But he never really did

He never really did

He’s a fighter but her memory knocks him down,

knocks him down but he gets back up

She’s a thriver but his thoughts turn her around,

Turn her around but she comes around

She picks up the phone half a million times

Intentions are good just to call him up, say hello

see if he thinks of her, too, she don’t know

She moved away so many years ago, things have changed

Would it be all wrong, awkward at best, was she being crazy…she don’t know

Many years go by

She moved on with her life

But she never really did

She never really did

She’s a fighter but his memory knocks her down,

knocks him down but she gets back up

He’s a thriver but her thoughts turn him around,

Turn him around but he comes around

Late December one rainy night

Walking alone when he saw her there, coming out of the store,

Just like he’d imagined times before

She didn’t know what to say

Some words escaped his mouth

Time froze the truth they share

On the way things had turned outHe’s a fighter but her memory knocks him down,

knocks him down but he gets back up

She’s a thriver but his thoughts turn her around,

Turn her around but she comes around

SHe’s a fighter but his memory knocks her down,

knocks her down but she gets back up

He’s a thriver but her thoughts turn him around,

Turn him around but he comes around

Many years go by

They move on with their lives

But they never really did

They never really did
