Within Temptation The Promise Lyrics

sponsored links
On behalf of her love
She no longer sleeps
Life had no longer meaning
Nothing to make her stay
She sold her soul away

I held you tight to me
(But) you slipped away
You promised to return to me
And I believed

After the night he died
I wept my tears until they dried
But the pain stayed the same
I didn't want him to die all in vain
I made a promise to revenge his soul in time
I'll make them bleed down at my feed

I held you tight to me
(But) you slipped away
You promised to return to me
And I believed
I held you tight to me
(But) you slipped away
You promised to return to me
And I believed

Sometimes I wonder
Could I have known
About their true intentions
As the pain stayed the same
I'm going to haunt them down all the way
I made a promise to revenge his soul in time
One by one they were surprised

I held you tight to me
(But) you slipped away
You promised to return to me
And I believed
I held you tight to me
(But) you slipped away
You promised to return to me
And I believed
