"Promise" as written by Sylvester Gordon, O. Major and P. Jackson....
Why do I do what I hate?
How can I give when I take?

I'm twenty-four with my hands in my pockets
Why can't I stop this?
Pushing away is easier than the chase

But you promised to wait
So what does that make me?
I just keep sinking
Down with this feeling
Am I in too deep?
I feel trapped beneath the weight
I just want an honest way to say
I need a change

Son, you grew up faster than the fall of rain
You've always been the man that I gave to this world
To this world
You've always been a miracle,

Time flying past me like a bullet train
And I've fallen underneath all the weight of this world
Of this world.
Relying on a Miracle

I'm Twenty-four with my hands in my pockets
Why can't I stop this

Why can't you stop this?
Promised to wait,
So what does that make me?
I just keep sinking down with this feeling,
am I in too deep

I feel trapped beneath the weight
I just want an honest way to say,
I just want an honest way to say,
I need a change,
I need a change

Why do I love what I hate?
How can I give what I take?

But you promised to wait,
So what does that make me?
I just keep sinking down with this feeling,
am I in too deep

I feel trapped beneath the weight,
I just want an honest way to say,
I just want an honest way to say,
I need a change,
I need a change,

A change.
