Kirk Whalum's The Promise

A song by Kirk Whalum I put lyrics to. It tells of hopelessness and how that can be changed if you are willing to open your heart.

The Promise

The Promise by Kirk Whalum


Here in my mind
All’s safe and mine, it’s so fine…
So sublime, I’m safely hidden.

I can’t complain
Days are the same, no surprise…
It’s not wise, in my eyes.
Go away. Don’t come too near me.

But something’s wrong I just can’t see
The emptiness inside of me.
There’s nothing else to be.
Won’t someone set me free
So I won’t have to flee
Away, far away.

My restless heart
Wanders around, lost and found
Safe and sound in an empty journey

When will I find
That peace of mind, hard to find
Life unwinds, am I blind
All alone, I’m getting nowhere.

Is there anybody else out there?
With hope and comfort, love to share
I know life’s not always fair
Help me or I’ll despair.
I’m going crazy, please save me
I’m crying, and dying; please help me...

[02:42]I’m alone I’m sure I’ll lose my mind
I can’t be the lonely kind
I’m walking that fine line
Please care, be there…

I see now that there’s hope, you’ve thrown me a rope
Night is gone…I’ll move on
To somewhere better.

In me there’s now a light,
Shining so bright
I can see, I am free
I’m now we, you and me, I know you better.

I did not see you there
Nor did I know you cared.
I was yours, you came before
I even knew it.

No longer alone
In you I’ve made my home
We can be, totally
I’ll always love you
