Promise

A song about losing someone you once loved.

You were so full of promise but wouldn't believe it

The only one I knew who had to fight to see it through

You took too much and yet it wasn't enough

You struggled with faith until it faded away

For only so long could you fake what nobody else could see

 

And I know you could have given so much more

If only you had stayed

I didn't understand you anymore

And now it's too late

 

I thought you were the one to show me what I needed

When all the time it was the other way around

I realise that now, but there's nothing to be done

There's nothing I can say, now that you're gone

For just a little longer could you have kept up the charade?

 

Because I know you could have given so much more

If only you had stayed

But I didn't understand you anymore

And now it's too late

 

I know it's selfish of me to want you back

But I know I let you down

You need to know I'm sorry for that

Even though you're not around

 

I know you could have given so much

If only you were here

I would give anything just

To know that you are near

 

And I just wanted to say

I'm sorry I was too late

 

The End
