the promise lyrics – anberlin

“the promise”
(originally by when in rome)

if you need a friend,
don’t look to a stranger,
you know in the end,
i’ll always be there.

and 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 promise)
i know they don’t sound the way i planned them to be. (i promise)
but if you’ll 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 promise)
i know they don’t sound the way i planned them to be. (i promise)
but if you’ll wait around a while, i’ll make you fall for me,
i promise, i promise you…

i’m sorry, but i’m just thinking of the right words to say. (i promise)
i know they don’t sound the way i planned them to be. (i promise)
and if i had to walk the world, i’d make you fall for me,
i promise, i promise you i will.

i gotta tell ya, i need to tell ya, i gotta tell ya, i gotta tell yaaaa …

i’m sorry, but i’m just thinking of the right words to say. (i promise)
i know they don’t sound the way i planned them to be. (i promise)
but if you’ll wait around a while, i’ll make you fall for me,
i promise, i promise you…

i’m sorry, but i’m just thinking of the right words to say. (i promise)
i know they don’t sound the way i planned them to be. (i promise)
and if i had to walk the world, i’d make you fall for me,
i promise, i promise you i will …
i will…
i will…
i will
