Song Lyrics - The Promise Is In The Way

Updated on February 7, 2011

I gave you my love
But you wanted a promise
I know how it makes you feel
I'm just trying to be honest

I gave you today
But you wanted tomorrow
You had my feelings
All you felt was sorrow

Love without the promise
Love without the promise
I'm sorry baby...I'm sorry...

We had our moments
But you wanted forever
You said it's not enough
Now it sounds like never

Love without the promise
Love without the promise
I'm sorry baby...I'm sorry...

I can give you my love
And in my heart you will stay
I guess that won't do
The promise is in the way

The promise
The promise
It's the one thing I can't give
The promise
The promise
Without it our love won't live

Love without the promise
Love without the promise
I'm sorry baby...I'm sorry...

      @Nayo - thank you! I hope it's on the radio some day! There may be a professional musician looking at my lyrics (I was told by somone they would try to get him to check it out) so I'm keeping my fingers crossed... great to see you back!!

      @Nan - thank you and I hope so!

      @stclairjack - thank you and I'm sorry if it summoned up negative feelings for you. It's a situation that exists and apparently you know this all too well. The title came to mind and I liked it so I went with it...

      @Genna - thank you and yes the photo worked well. I was lucky to find it... she looks stymied doesn't she?

      @breakfastpop - thank you again for following and saying nice things about my work.

      @Kindacrazy - thank you... this one shows the pain of being in love but still hurting that person...

      @Eiddwen - thank you for reading and commenting!

      @Chanel - thank you!

      @saintodd - thanks for commenting. Hopefully there will be more songs to come.

      @acaetnna - thank you for your sweet words. It's not a matter of throwing it away... it's just tough to give everything sometimes... hopefully things work out.

      @b. Malin - I've committed before so it's not always that... like I said to acaetnna sometimes you find yourself where you wish you could give more but you just have to wait no matter the cost.

      The promise, the promise, seems the only way this woman will be happy...and YOU like many men just can't do it...But if she were the "ONE"...maybe just maybe, you would. Voted this one two thumbs up!

      @Susan - I just write lyrics and then hope somebody can do something with them.... I can play the piano but my finger is broken and I've not tried to write any melodies... it would be great to work with someone.... thanks for the nice comment!

      Suburban you and my son should get together, he is always writing songs for the guitar but has yet to come up with words for the songs. Too bad we live so far apart. Beautiful song!
