I have fallen to my knees
As I sing a lullaby of pain
I'm feeling broken in my melody
As I sing to help the tears go away

Then I remember the pledge you made to me

[CHORUS:]
I know you're always there
To hear my every prayer inside
I'm clinging to the promise of a lifetime
I hear the words you say
To never walk away from me and leave behind
The promise of a lifetime

Will you help me fall apart
Pick me up, take me in your arms
Find my way back from the storm
And you show me how to grow
Through the change

I still remember the pledge you made to me

CHORUS:]
I know you're always there
To hear my every prayer inside
I'm clinging to the promise of a lifetime
I hear the words you say
To never walk away from me and leave behind
The promise of a lifetime

[BRIDGE:]
I am holding on to the hope I have inside
With you I will stay through every day
Putting my understanding aside

I am comforted
To know your always there
To hear my every prayer inside
I'm clinging to the promise of a lifetime.
I hear the words you say
To never walk away from me and leave behind
The promise of a lifetime

I know you're always there
To hear my every prayer inside
I'm clinging to the promise of a lifetime
Looking back at me
I know that you can see
My heart is open to the promise of a lifetime

    It means to me that you are a child of god and that he will never leave you or forsake you when you invite him into your heart as your savior. He made that promise when he sent his son to die for us on the cross.

    I think it means he's holding on to gods word. He knws god can hear him praying and he has made a promise. God will always be there for us to hear our every prayer, as stated in the lyrics.

    This song is about no matter what life is doing to you, our lord has promised to always be there, to hear our prayers, to comfort us, in all our pain, and when we feel broken, he is there to give us hope, and love, and help us who are finding their way back from the storm
