Anywhere you are, I am near,
Anywhere you go, I'll be there,
Anytime you whisper my name,
You'll see,
Every single promise I'll keep,
'Cuz what kind of guy would I be,
If I was to leave when you need me most,

What are words
If you really don't mean them when you say them,
What are words
If they're only for good times then they're done,
When it's love, yeah, you say them out loud,
Those words,
They never go away,
They live on,
Even when we're gone,

And I know an angel will say
Just for me and I know I'm meant,
To be where I am and I'm gonna be,
Standin' right beside her tonight,
And I'm gonna be by your side,
I would never leave when she needs me most,

What are words
If you really don't mean them when you say them,
What are words,
If they're only for good times then they're done,
When it's love, yeah, you say them out loud,
Those words,
They never go away,
They live on,
Even when we're gone,

Anywhere you are, I am near,
Anywhere you go, I'll be there,
And I'm gonna be there forever more,

Every single promise I'll keep,
'Cuz what kind of guy would I be,
If I was to leave when you need me most

I'm forever keeping my angel
Close.

    I had a friend who makes fun of me everyday. I haven't noticed, I have fallen for him already.
    Until the day that i couldn't take it any longer i told him to stop teasing and saying words like
    he wants to marry me, he likes me....and to my surprise he let me listen to this song!

    Dec. 12th, 2007, the singer's fiancee who was in love with him for 8 yrs got engaged with him. However, after 2 yrs, oct. 2nd, 2009, she got an accident. After recovery, she only could think and act like 2 yrs old kid. But chris never left his fiancee, still tried her best to earn money to make her have better medical treatment. This song expresses his deep love to his fiancee. What are words, if you really do not mean them when you say them. This is what love and promise should be.

    The song makes me cry because it reminds me of my bf who cant keep his promises or words when i need him the most.. I love him a lot and have kepy my promises and words, but he cant even keep one of his promises or words. The song is the meaning of love. Not just dating someone but actually being there for the one you love and keeping it real.
