Chris Cornell - The Promise Lyrics

If I had nothing to my name
But photographs of you
Rescued from the flame
That is all I would ever need
As long as I can read
What's written on your face
The strength that shines behind your eyes
The hope and light that will never die
[Chorus]
And one promise you made
One promise that always remains
No matter the price
A promise to survive
Persevere and thrive
As we've always done
[Verse 2]
And you said: "the poison in a kiss is the lie upon the lips"
Truer words were never shared
When I feel like lies are all I hear
I pull my memories near, the one thing they can't take
[Chorus]
And one promise you made
One promise that always remains
No matter the price
A promise to survive
Persevere and thrive
As we've always done
[Bridge]
The books still open on the table
The bells still ringing in the air
The dreams still clinging to the pillow
The songs still singing in a prayer
[Verse 3]
Now my soul is stretching through the roots
To memories of you
Back through time and space
To carry home
The faces and the names
And photographs of you, rescued from the flames
[Chorus]
One promise you made
One promise that always remains
No matter the price
A promise to survive
Persevere and thrive
And dare to rise once more
A promise to survive
Persevere and thrive
And fill the world with life
As we've always done
