Chris Murray – The Promise lyrics

welcome to my life, welcome to my heart
welcome to my soul
let lovin' be our art, happiness our goal
for the rest of time, know your love is mine
and my love is yours
for through the trials of time
the faithful love endures

because I promise you the world
and I'm giving you forever
giving you my love
and leaving you never

from the well we've tapped spring forth happy days
warm and tender nights
we'll build a world of love
a garden of delight
we'll let karma send us a perfect end
to this fairy tale
two hearts that would not bend
a love that would not fail

because I'm giving you my word
that I'm loving you forever
and leaving you never

on the waves of love and the winds of time
we set sail to our lives
though wind and waves grow strong
the strong at heart survive
as the years go past and we come at last
to face our final dawn
when bodies have collapsed
spirits will carry on

because I promise you my love
that love can last forever
giving you my heart
and leaving you never
because I promise you the world
and I'm giving you forever
I'm pledging you my soul
and leaving you never
