I have fallen to my knees
As I sing a lullaby of pain
I'm feeling broken in my melody
As I sing to help the tears go away
Then I remember the pledge you made to me

(Chorus)
I know you're always there
To hear my every prayer inside I'm clinging to
The promise of a lifetime
I hear the words you say
To never walk away from me and leave behind
The promise of a lifetime

Will you help me fall apart
Pick me up, take me in your arms
Find my way back from the storm
And you show me how to grow through the change
I still remember the pledge you made to me

(Chorus)
I know you're always there
To hear my every prayer inside I'm clinging to
The promise of a lifetime
I hear the words you say
To never walk away from me and leave behind
The promise of a lifetime

I am holding on to the hope I have inside
With you I will stay through every day
Putting my understanding aside
I am comforted

(Chorus)
To know you're always there
To hear my every prayer inside I'm clinging to
The promise of a lifetime
I hear the words you say
To never walk away from me and leave behind
The promise of a lifetime

(Chorus)
I know you're always there
To hear my every prayer inside I'm clinging to
The promise of a lifetime
Looking back at me
I know that you can see my heart is holding to
The promise of a lifetime

    General Commenti think that this song is about someone who has fallen but remembered that their spouse or lover has a promise to them to always be there and that they will never leave them and that their love is true pure and holy

    General CommentI think it's about God and when you're Christian (or in a religion where you believe in God), you have a promise with God and He has a promise with you and he'll always be there ('I know you're always there, To hear my every prayer inside').
    It can be heard and thought of as a song about two peopl in love but this song is much more meaningful than that, it's much stronger than anything because there's no connection stronger than you and God.

    General CommentI agree with Shadeslayer. I think it's about God staying with us in spirit and His promise to never forsake us.

    General CommentI think this song to is way more deep then just a husband and wife. This song is telling us even when we mess up God with never abandon us or leave us. He's promised to stay with us and give us eternal life.







    "I have fallen to my knees
    As I sing a lullaby of pain
    I'm feeling broken in my melody
    As I sing to help the tears go away"

    You have messed up and sinned and feel hopeless like you don't deserve anything


    "Then I remember the pledge you made to me"


    Jesus promised he'll always stay with us and he'll forgive us.
