The Promise

I just love this song...
(Actually I love the whole album, but this song is especially beautiful.)

The Promise
Lyrics and music by: Tracy Chapman
Album: New Beginning

Lyrics:

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

Remembering
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

Remembering
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

Remembering
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

Remembering
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

Hi Anne, I'm also a fan of Tracy and I love that song and video. Thanks so much for posting it.

Have a great evening!

Anne:

Thanks Kathy - glad you enjoyed it!

I also love Tracy Chapman. This is a beautiful song! I have an older CD of hers. I think I will have to see if iTunes sells this song.

Hey wait! I just went to look for my Tracy Chapman CD and I am in shock! My CD is her New Beginning CD! The Promise is on this CD. Good think I didn't get too impulsive and buy it :) I am so glad you posted this video. I am taking my CD with me so that I can listen to it while driving to work.

Anne:

lol girasoli, that's too funny! The whole CD is fantastic. Tin Man has been one of Miss Ninja's faves since she was very young.
