Promise Of You

This song is by Edwin McCain and appears on the album Messenger (1999).

Thepromise of you
It sleeps in the air
The air that I breathe
And I know that's it's true
Don't have to convince myself to believe, yeah
What secrets sleep in the heart of a man
So much love wasted
Slip right through my hands
See it in the eyes of the lonely
As they make their weary way
Shimmer in the eyes of longing
I hear it say

Promise of you
It sleeps in the air
The air that I breathe
And I know that it's true
Don't have to convince myself to believe
To believe...

What secrets sleep in the heart of the night
My dreams of salvation
Slipping out of sight
In the shimmering moments of the wilight
Closing up the shine
Whisper on the wind of a rescue
Savior in time

Promise of you
It sleeps in the air
The air that I breathe
And I know that it's true
Don't have to convince myself to believe

And all this time
I've been fighting for my own pirvate war
And all this time
You were the peace I searched for
