Promise, The


You gave me back my soul again by showing me

The laughter and the wonder in your eyes

And saved me from the shuttered man I used to be

And opened up the windows of my life

And the happiness you've given me for loving you

Is sweeter love and deeper every day

But I can't stop the changes that you're growin' through

Or someone new from stealing you away



         So darlin' when it's time you can spread your wings

         And I'll set you free

         To fly away, and it's okay

         'Cause darlin' time changes everything

         But it won't change me

         I love you, I love you


Inside of me you'll always be my valentine

And I pray your freedom makes your dreams come true

As long as there's a heart beat in this soul of mine

You'll know there's someone so in love with you
