THE PROMISE

Lyrics written and owned by Chantele Delaine

Go on, lay your head down

Go on, close your eyes

If you need I'll rock you

Through your cries I’ll empathize

I’ve been there through wakeful nights

And when you learned to crawl

I’ll be there when I can

To catch you when you fall

 

 

Doesn’t seem so long ago

You barely reached up to my knees

But through the years I’ve watched you grow

Though I wanted time to freeze

 

Now you’re no longer a child

You face all new rules

Which years demand you grow yourself

A living set of coping tools

 

'Cause I’ve been there through wakeful nights

And when you learned to crawl

I’ll be there when I can

To catch you when you fall

 

I have done alright by you

Though sometimes I set you down

I’ve watched on as you claimed

Your first step on the ground

I want to hold you throughout the long haul

The Promise is my love to you all

 

Go on, lay your head down

Go on, close your eyes

If you need I'll rock you

Through your cries I’ll empathize

 

Because I’ve been there through wakeful nights

And when you’ve learned to crawl

I’ll be there when I can

To catch you when you fall

You are part of my soul

You are a part of me

You're the purest part, don't you know?

You are my legacy

 

Am I’ve been there through wakeful nights

And when you learned to crawl

I’ll be there when I can

To catch you when you fall

The Promise is my love to you all
