"The Promise" as written by Friedrich H. Weber, Boris Pracht, Jens Basten, Stefan Eutebach and Christian Bass....
I can tell by the look in your eyes
The way you disguise the way you feel about me
Waiting for this moment to collapse
You know I tried to, oh god I tried to
Break through
And every time I look into your eyes, what do I see?
Inside of me?

Waiting for this moment to collapse inside my mind
This time we will run to anywhere you choose
I'll give you more than all, more than all
I'd slit my throat
For just one glimpse
Into your heart

I can't take this anymore
The constant games you've been playing
And every time you look my way
All the words you try to say are falling apart
Where does that leave me?

Waiting for this moment to collapse
You know I tried to, oh god I tried to
Break through
And every time I look into your eyes, what do I see?
Inside of me?

Waiting for this moment to collapse inside my mind
This time we will run to anywhere you choose
I'll give you more than all
All my feelings galvanized in blood
We will run to anywhere you choose
I'll give you more than all

Why is it every time I close my eyes you're there?
I see your face
You're always there
Why is it every time I close my eyes you're there?
I see your face
You're always there

    General CommentWow!!!! I get to comment first!!!

    Anyways, I love BLFBE!!! But, I think this song is about... wait... anybody whose heard the songs or read the lyrics should get the general idea!!!

    Yeah, I'm lazy too...
    But anyways, it seems to be about a girl messing with this guys head and heart. Either she's sending mixed signals, or isn't opening her heart up enough for him and he's trying to show her that she has nothing to be afraid of and that he'd do it just to show her.

    General CommentGod, I love this band. This song is okay, I like the meaning behind it, but my favorite is definitely Walk With Me. It's pretty much amazing.
