"A Promise" as written by Brian D Casey, Brandon D Casey, Jermaine Mauldin Dupri, Bert Young, Gary Smith and Bryan Michael Paul Cox....
On this hill top
I buried you
As a younger man
We gathered 'round
Your empty husk
And spoke of how you were so loved

And as the sun died
I promised that I'd seek you out
Well now the years have weathered me
And soon I'll claim you for my arms again

And if our hearts all disappear
And if our bones, they crumble to the soil
Well all our love will rise again

And if our hearts all disappear
And if our bones, they crumble to the soil
And all our love will rise again
And we'll float to the sea

And if our hearts all disappear
And if our bones, they crumble to the soil
And all our love will rise again
And we'll float to the sea

    General CommentThe first time I heard this song.. rather the first time I heard the first chorus sung so softly and full of emotion, I couldn't help but tear up a bit. And then the climax that leads to the last two choruses.. Just so powerful. If this song doesn't stir up some emotions, I don't know what will. :p
