Slash – Promise lyrics

The first time I ever saw you
You had that far away look in your eyes
And heaven's lies shined down upon you
And the whole room filled up with light

Now the cruel world it's gonna try and change you
Try to hang you up and mess with your pride
Now the rich just try to chain you (?)
You got to keep your fire burning inside

Promise me
You won't let them put out your fire
Put out your fire
Promise me
You won't let them put out your fire
Put out your fire

Now sometimes the world tries to slap you
And it seems to love watching you fall
I wont lie to you, it's gonna happen
You got to pick yourself up and move on

Promise me
You won't let them put out your fire
Put out your fire
Promise me
You won't let them put out your fire
Put out your fire

Which star will I be thinking of tonight
Tonight
Which star will I be thinking of tonight
Tonight

Promise me
You won't let them put out your fire
Put out your fire
You won't let them put out your fire
Put out your fire

Promise me
(Why don't you)
Promise me
(Why don't you)
Promise me
(Why don't you)
Promise me
(Why don't you)

    Not 100% sure who it's about could be anyone the "singer/writer" admires or admired. What I can say is that the "singer/writer" wants the subject of the song to promise him that the subject won't compromise the amazing attributes by which the "singer/writer" came to love and admire in the subject from the beginning. It is unclear if there remains an active relationship between the subject and the "singer/writer". Potential subjects of the song: Axle Rose, Kim Thayil, an ex-lover, a current lover, dear friend, former friend in trouble.
