"Promise" as written by Tijuan T Frampton and Steven A Jordan....
What would You say
If I asked You not to go?
To forget everyone, forget everything
And start over with me
Would you take my hand and never let me go
Promise me you'll never let me go

And now the stars aren't out tonight
But neither are we to look up at them
Why does Hello feel like Goodbye?
And these memories can't replace
These wishes I wished and dreams I've chased
Take this broken heart and make it right

I feel like I've lost everything when You're gone Left remembering what it's like
To have you here with me
I thought you should know
You're not making this easy

I never thought I'd be the one to say
Please don't, well please don't leave me

I feel like I've lost everything when You're gone
Left remembering what it's like
To have you here with me
I thought you should know
You're not making this easy
You're not making this easy(easy, easy, easy)

Take my hand, and never let me go
Take my hand, and never let me go
Promise me...
You'll never let go
Never let me go
Never let me go
You'll never let me go

I feel like I've lost everything when You're gone
Left remembering what it's like
To have you here with me
I thought you should know
You're not making this easy(x5)

I'll fall asleep tonight, cause
That brings me closer to You

    General Commentdamn good love song. just shows how someone can be so helplessly dependent on the one they love that the only time they feel alive is when that person is near them. I can totally relate. If you like this song, try "Konstantine" by Something Corporate. It's a little more emo, but amazing
