"I Promised Myself" as written by and Nick Kamen....
I promised myself
I promised I'd wait for you
The midnight hour
I know you'll shine on through
I promised myself
I promised the world to you
I gave you flowers
You made my dreams come true
How many of us out there
Feel the need to run and look for shelter

I promised myself
That I'd say a prayer for you
A brand new tomorrow
Where all you wish comes true
I promised myself
(I promised, I Promised)
That I'd make it up to you
My sister and brother
Know I'm in love with you
(Aaaaaaa)

How many of us out there
Feel the pain of losing what was once there
God I know what people say about her
No mistake, who can live without love
I promised myself
(Aaaaaaa)
(I promised, I promised)

In the midnight hour I will wait for you
(For you)
I will wait for you
(I will wait, yeah)
I will wait for you
(I will wait for you)
In the midnight hour I will wait for you
(Uuuuu)
I will wait for you
(I will wait for you)
I will wait for you
(I will wait for you)

I promised myself
(I promised)
I promised I'd wait for you
(I promised I do, I do)
The midnight hour
(I promised, I promised)
I know you'll shine on through
(I know you'll shine on through)
I promised myself
(I promised, I promised)
I promised the world to you
(I promised the world to you)
I gave you flowers
(Flowers, flowers)
You made my dreams come true
(You made my dreams come true)

    General Comment...of course this was a song written and sung well before this in 1990 by Nik Kamen (of Madonna and Levi fame). This was actually a good song that did well in eUROPE - except for the UK where his previous songs did not do down well. This osng was dance remixed in 2004, and covered by a few oter artists. The original 90 version is better in my view than the other covers.
    The song is clear in the sense it is someone waiting for their lover, promising that they will. I assume however they are not returning and they know that - possibly because they have died.
