Tori Amos – Promise lyrics

Tori: Promise not to say

Tash: that you told me so
Promise not to say

Tori: that I'm getting too old

Tash: Promise not to take

Tori: never take your phone

Tash: I mean take their word

Tori: you mean over yours?
What I need to know, will you

Tash: Be there

Tori: Where the sun shines

Tash: I will be there

Tori: you are the light

Tash: that follows you everywhere

Tash and Tori: look for my love

Tash: where the sun shines
I will be there

Tori: will you

Tash: Promise not to judge

Tori: to judge who you love
I don't know if I...

Tash: Yes, make that Promise

Tori: whatever it is

Tash: can you hear the truth
If they accuse me

Tori: you think I'll doubt you?
What I need to know, will you

Tash: be there
When I am all alone

Tori: you're not alone

Tash: when I am broken down

Tori: we all break down

Tash: when every door is closed

Tori: there is one more

Tash: will you look for me?
I will rescue you
