Set It Off – I Promise lyrics

[Verse 1]
If you stepped back and realized
I'm sure that you'll see,
That these words that were spoken
Eventually
Will dwell in my conscience til my dying day.
Oh what can I say to change your perception,
Want me by your side?
The fact that you've moved on makes me wanna cry.
If you open your door I'll be there with arms wide
Just begging and praying for one more goodbye.
So I'll wait for you, even though you don't want me to.

[Chorus]
Because I'm not over you, I promise.
This word they call love,
Come push or to shove,
I meant it and now I'm in tears,
My love.
Oh, my love.
Oh.

[Verse 2]
I keep telling myself that it's not what it seems,
And wish that you wouldn't keep haunting my dreams.
I'll shoot out of bed and wake up in a sweat,
How could I forget?
I imagined the worst when you were on the phone,
As you sat there and told me that you were alone.
I could see him; I know how he makes you behave,
That this wasn't the girl that I kissed on our date.
But I'll wait for you, even though you don't want me to.

[Chorus]
Because I'm not over you, I promise.
This word they call love,
Come push or to shove,
I meant it and now I'm in tears,
Because I'm not over you, I promise.
You won't see this face
Show up at your place.
Although I'm in town,
I'll stay here.
My love.
Oh, my love.
My love.
Oh, my love.

[Hook]
And I should know better, give up while I can.
And prove to the world that I'll be my own man.
You broke me and took me along for the ride,
And this pain that you've left me,
Should make me subside!

[Bridge]
But I'm not over you
(I'm not over you
I'm not over you
I'm not over you)
I promise.
This word they call love,
Come push or to shove,
(I wished I could to anything to get you back)
I meant it and now I'm in tears,
Because I'm not over you (cause I'm over you)
I promise,
You wont see this face
Show up at your place. (don't let me go)
Although I'm in town,
I'll stay here.

[Outro]
Cause I'm not over you, I promise.
This word they call love,
Come push or to shove,
I meant it and now I'm in tears,
My love.
