"Promise" as written by and Benjamin John Howard....
And meet me there, bundles of flowers
We wait through the hours of cold
Winter shall howl at the walls
Tearing down doors of time
Shelter as we go

And promise me this
You'll wait for me only
Scared of the lonely arms
Surface, far below these burn
And maybe, just maybe I'll come home

Who am I, darling to you?
Who am I?
Going to tell you stories of mine
Who am I?

Who am I, darling for you?
Who am I?
Could be a burden in time, lonely
Who am I, to you?

Who am I, darling for you?
Who am I?
Going to be a burden
Who am I, darling to you?
Who am I?

I come alone here
I come alone here

    General CommentIs it just me or his voice really makes everything just freeze in time?

    General CommentI think instead of

    "Surface, far below these words"

    it is actually
    "Surface, far below these burns"

    great song though, exactly how I'm feeling now.
