Promise Me

(performed by Andi Morici)
written by Andi Morici & Tom Sparks
Telephone rang on the kitchen wall,
Dried the soap suds from my hands,
Wasn’t expecting any calls,
Hope they’re not selling windows again…
But the words I heard took my breath away,
My best friend Maggie told me he left her for good that day.

I thought if they can’t make it, how can we?
Are we allowed to claim eternity?

Can you promise me that the sun will not burn out?
Can you guarantee that our love won’t be cut short?
Do you know the sky won’t come crashing to the ground?
We can’t see it all, but I need to hear;
Please promise me right now, right here

Maggie’s dreams were right on track,
Then this hit out of the blue.
I can’t help thinking about
This life I’ve built with you.
I don’t want to sway with every breeze that whispers past,
But right now I need to know our love will last.

Can you promise me that the sun will not burn out?
Can you guarantee that our love won’t be cut short?
Do you know the sky won’t come crashing to the ground?
We can’t see it all, but I need to hear;
Will you promise me right now; can you promise me right here?

I need to know it’s not just feelings that we’re built on,
But through the worst of life our love is gonna hold on.

Can you promise me that the sun will not burn out?
Can you guarantee that our love won’t be cut short?
Do you know the sky won’t come crashing to the ground?
We can’t see it all, but I need to hear;
Please promise me right now, right here.
