The Promise lyrics

You gave me back my soul again by showin me
The laughter and the wonder in your eyes
Saved me from the shuttered man I used to be
Opened up the windows of my life

And the happiness youve given me for lovin you
Is sweeter love and deeper every day
I cant stop the changes that youre growin through
Or someone new from stealin you away

Chorus:
So darlin when its time you can spread your wings
And Ill set you free - to fly away - and its ok
Cause darlin time changes everything
But it wont change me
I love you - oh... I love you

Inside of me youll always be my valentine
I pray your freedom makes your dreams come through
As long as theres a heartbeat in this soul of mine
Youll know theres someone so in love with you

Chorus:
So darlin when its time you can spread your wings
And Ill set you free - to fly away - and its ok
Cause darlin time changes everything
But it wont change me
I love you - oh... I love you
