If you need a friend, don't look to a stranger,
You know in the end, I'll always be there.
And when you're in doubt, and when you're in danger,
Take a look all around, and I'll be there.

I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say
(I promise)
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be
(I promise)
But if you'll wait around awhile,
I'll make you fall for me,
I promise you, I promise you I will.

When your day is through, and so is your temper,
You know what to do, I'm gonna always be there.

Sometimes if I shout, it's not what's intended.
These words just come out, with no gripe to bear.

I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say.
(I promise)
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be.
(I promise)
But if you'll wait around awhile, I'll make you fall for me,
I promise you, I promise you...
I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say.
(I promise)
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be.
(I promise)
And if I had to walk the world, I'd make you fall for me,
I promise you, I promise you I will.

I gotta tell you, I gotta tell you, I need to tell you

I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say.
(I promise)
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be.
(I promise)
But if you'll wait around awhile,
I'll make you fall for me,
I promise you, I promise you...

I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say.
(I promise)
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be.
(I promise)
And if I had to walk the world, I'd make you fall for me,
I promise you, I promise you I will
I will
I will
I will...
