Ben Howard – Promise lyrics
And meet me there, with bundles of flowers,
We'll wade through the hours of cold
Winter she'll howl at the walls,
Tearing down doors of time
.

Shelter as we go...

And promise me this:
You'll wait for me only,
Scared of the lonely arms.
That surface, far below these birds.

And maybe, just maybe I'll come home

Who am I, darling to you?
Who am I,
To tell you stories of mine
Who am I?

Who am I, darling for you?
Who am I
To be your burden in time, lonely
Who am I, to you?

Who am I, darling for you?
Who am I
To be your burden

Who am I, darling to you?
Who am I?

I come alone here
I come alone here

    "Promise me this, you'll wait for me only" He's is requesting faithfulness. "Scared of the lonely arms, that surface below these birds". He's afraid of shallow relationships "Lonely arms". Relationships without heart and love. "That surface below these birds". He's expressing that he's flying (with birds), aloft with the subject of this song. To summarize, he's asking someone that he is.....head over heels for.....flying through the sky, to love him back FAITHFULLY as he does in kind.
