The Promise
If you need a friend

Don't look to a stranger

You know in the end, I'll always be there

But when you're in doubt

And when you're in danger

Take a look all around, and I'll be there


I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say

I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be

But if you wait around a while, I'll make you fall for me

I promise, I promise you I will


When your day is through

And so is your temper

You know what to do

I'm gonna always be there

Sometimes if I shout

It's not what's intended

These words just come out

With no gripe to bear


I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say

I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be

But if you wait around a while, I'll make you fall for me

I promise you, I promise you I will


I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say

I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be

But if you wait around a while, I'll make you fall for me

I promise you, I promise

I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say

I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be

But if you wait around a while, I'll make you fall for me

I promise you, I promise you I will
