The Promise Lyrics - Tracy Chapman

Review The Song (43)

If you wait for me
then I'll come for you
Although I've traveled far
I always hold a place for you in my heart

If you think of me
If you miss me once in awhile
Then I'll return to you
I'll return and fill that space in your heart

Your touch
Your kiss
Your warm embrace
I'll find my way back to you
If you'll be waiting

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

Your touch
Your kiss
Your warm embrace
I'll find my way back to you
If you'll be waiting

I've longed for you
And I have desired
To see your face your smile
To be with you wherever you are

Your touch
Your kiss
Your warm embrace
I'll find my way back to you
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 can 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.

A place for me in your heart.
A place for me in your heart.
A place for me in your heart.

A couple of forevers | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/20/14

I remember my first time hearing this song was on my 22nd birthday. My boyfriend of 4 years had presented me with a promise ring that afternoon, and he played it all nyt ,promising me a 'couple of forevers'. We in a long distance relationship because of his work for the SA Navy, but together I believe we will find each others way bk into each others arms *tearyeyes*

My husband and I used this as our first dance when we got married over 12 years ago. It was special to us because we were both in the Air Force, he was stationed in Montana and I was stationed in Italy ( where we had met). It was a tough time in our relationship, being so far apart, but we were committed to making it work. It really fit that part of our lives and we both listened to the song a lot and found it fitting to play as our first dance. Beautiful song.

confused | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/25/13

My boyfriend is currently studying miles away from me and I was really missing him until my first love suddenly got back into my life after 10 years.. That was the magical moment when I first heard this song.. I've been listening to it everyday since then but I don't know if its coz I miss my boyfriend or it's coz iI'm still terribly in love with my first love.. :-(

my first love and i saw each other last week after 30 years. We live on different continents and are both married so we'll never be able to share our lives together again but we have always stayed in touch and always known that we still love each other. He sent me these lyrics yesterday for valentine's day and it touched me so much.... what a beautiful song....

I really love listening to this song. It reminds me of my boyfriend that i love so deeply. We've gone our separate ways but listening to this song brings back all the memories I have of him....

It makes me long for him and makes me miss him more and more that it really hurts...

Thanks to you Tracy, your song made me realize my true feelings and made my deep seated emotions surface....
