Song Lyric Sunday: Attestations – ‘The Promise’

Vows, oaths, promises…all different types of attestation and the key words for Jim’s Song Lyric Sunday challenge this week.

I confess I was surprised to see how many songs there are out there called simply ‘(The) Promise’. However, I know my lovely daughter in particular will enjoy this. It’s really rather good…

How time will heal
Make me forget
You promised me
Time will heal
Make me forget
You promised me
Love will save us all
And time will heal
You promised me…
How love will save
Make me forget
You promised me
Love will save
Make me forget
You promised me
Time will heal us all
And love will save
You promised me…
I trusted you
I wanted your words
Believed in you
I needed your words
Time will heal
make me forget
And love will save us all
You promised me another wish
Another way
You promised me another dream
Another day
You promised me another time
You promised me another life
You promised me..
So I swallowed the shame and I waited
I buried the blame and I waited
Choked back years of memories…
I pushed down the pain and I waited
Trying to forget…
You promised me another wish
Another way
You promised me another dream
Another day
You promised me another time
You promised me…
Another lie
Oh you promised me…
You promised me… You promised me…
And I waited… And I waited… And I waited…
And I’m still waiting…
