The Promise

The Promise Lyrics

If you wait for me
Then I'll come for you
Although I've travelled far
I always hold a place for you
In my heart
If you think of me
If you miss me once in a while
Then I'll return to you
I'll return and fill that space in your heart
Remembering your touch
Your kiss
Your warm embrace
I'll find my way
Back to you
If you'll be waiting
2nd verse-
If you dream of me
Like I dream of you
In a place that's warm and dark
In a place where I can feel
The beating of your heart
I've longed for you
And I have desired
To see your face your smile
To be with you wherever you are
3rd verse-
Please say you'll be waiting
Together again
It would feel so good to be in your arms
Where all my journeys end
If you make a promise
If it's one that you can keep
I vow to come for you
If you wait for me
And say you'll hold
A place for me
In your heart
