If you need a friend
don't look to a stranger
You know in the end
I'll always be there

And when you're in doubt
And when you're in danger
Take a look all around
And I'll be there

I?m sorry but I'm just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don?t sound the way I plan them to be
But if you wait around awhile I?ll make you fall for me
I promise you, I promise you I will

When your day is through
And so is your temper
You know what to do
I'm gonna always be there

Sometimes if I shout
That's not what's intended
These words just come out
With no cross to bear

I?m sorry but I'm just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don?t sound the way I plan them to be
But if you wait around awhile I?ll make you fall for me
I promise I promise you
I?m sorry but I'm just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don?t sound the way I plan them to be
But if I had to walk the world I?d make you fall for me
I promise you, I promise you I will

Gotta tell ya
Need to tell ya
Want to tell ya

I?m sorry but I'm just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don?t sound the way I plan them to be
But if you wait around awhile I?ll make you fall for me
I promise you, I promise you
I?m sorry but I'm just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don?t sound the way I plan them to be
But if I had to walk the world I?d make you fall for me
I promise you, I promise you I will

I will
I will

    General CommentThis is a good song It is however a cover and i would like to know who it is originally by. For those of you using Kazaa You can find the original byu searching "i promise" and then DL the one by Depeche Mode. I don't think that is who it really is done by though. If you have any info on it post it please Hey mercedes Rocks Im seein them in 2 weeks Cant wait!

    General CommentAh Yes.. When In Rome - The Promise. Such an amazing song. Bob and the boys do it so well.
    Many people were upset when they covered a couple Smith tracks durning the days of braid. But I still think they kicked some major ass! Whatever they touch..turns to gold.

    General CommentBraid's Smith covers were amazing... those songs were made for melodic post-punk...This Charming Man & There is a Light that Never Goes Out are actually two of my fav. Braid songs, despite being covers.
    Oh, and this one kicks ass, too.
