I walk through the door, you don't even smile at me anymore
Like New York's December I'm longing for some warmth in the cold
There are times when I think the least you could do is just let me go
'Cause you're abusing me - accusing me - I'm drowning in my own tears

But I made you a promise I'll never forget,
Each word was this heart beating inside my chest,
If we can't be forever we're both gonna lose,
So don't give up on me - and I won't give up on you

When you say goodbye, I wonder if it might be the last time
I see you with that lingering disappointment in your eyes
Then you'll come home and I somehow believe that I'm still all alone
Did you choose me - just to prove to me - you can bring me to my knees

Still I made you a promise I'll never forget,
Each word was this heart beating inside my chest,
If we can't be forever we're both gonna lose,
So don't give up on me - and I won't give up on you

I've been dreaming of this, I've been believing this, I've been conceiving this
All my life
I've never wanted more, than what we had before
I pray that it's not lost

I made you a promise I'll never forget,
Each word was this heart beating inside my chest,
If we can't be forever we're both gonna lose,
So don't give up on me and I won't give up on you

So I'll wait for tomorrow
Maybe she'll smile at me this time..

    General Commenti love love love this song! i heard it played by the lead singer of this band in an acoustic show in a small, but very lively bar in Windsor, ON.. I bought the cd then and there.

    I think this song is about coming to a cross roads in a relationship. He is telling his girl he won't let her go without a fight but she's got to feel the same. He won't give up on her if she doesn't give up on him.. I think we've all felt this before. I just can't get enough of the last line 'so i'll wait for tomorrow.. maybe she'll smile at me this time..'
