The Promise

2017
There’s a promise that you made
And a promise that was broken
There’s the promise of a love
And no words were ever spoken
There a promise of a future
There’s a stairway trimmed in gold
There’s a promise of a new life
And a longing for the old

Everybody learns a lesson
Everybody comes to know
That little promise that you keep
Sometimes you have to let it go

So you got me on the dance floor
Wrap your arms around my waist
Let’s just live right in this moment
Let’s not let it get away

So when you take me to the movies
When you swing me high and low
Be that someone I can lean on
Tell me something I don’t know

So you got me on the dance floor
Wrap your arms around my waist
Let’s just live right in this moment
Let’s not let it get away
Let’s not let it get away
