"The Promise You Made" as written by and Peter Kingsbery....
If I laid down my love to come to your defense
Would you worry for me with a pain in your chest?
Could I rely on your faith to be strong
To pick me back up and to push me along?
Tell me

You'll be there in my hour of need
You won't turn me away
Help me out of the life I lead
Remember the promise you made
Remember the promise you made

If I gave you my soul for a piece of your mind
Would you carry me with you to the far edge of time?
Could you understand if you found me untrue
Would we become one, or divided in two
Please tell me

You'll be there in my hour of need
You won't turn me away
Help me out of the life I lead
Remember the promise you made
Remember the promise you made

Could I rely on your faith to be strong
To pick me back up and to push me along
Please tell me

You'll be there in my hour of need
You won't turn me away
Help me out of the life I lead
Remember the promise you made
Remember the promise you made

Remember the promise you made
Remember the promise you made

    General CommentWhat!!!??? No comment at all for this testament to love?
    Probably one of the best "love songs" I've heard, with a great combination of lyrics, music and specially delivery... Not particulary excelling in any one of those, it reaches a great balance between them.

    Sometimes, when you utter 'I'll love you forever' you're not just giving a compliment; you're just stating a fact, for better or for worse.
