The Promise by Micheal Lee Collins

Did ya feel me carrying you?
You were tired and bruised.
I held you through the storm
Yeah, ya felt so good in my arms.

There was nothing I could do to make you stay,
But ya did it anyway.

Yeah we had some pretty close calls,
When your back was right against the wall.
But you fought your way back to the light
Yeah your faith was strong enough for one more fight.

I'm holding you, you hold on too
Yes we'll make it through cause I love you.

Do you remember when I use to catch your tears?
And through the darkest nights I'd calm your fears.
And through the storm I'd be the silver-line
And let ya know it'd be just fine.

Yeah we better Hold on!

Very honest and heart felt. I love this song!

very nice vocals.... Song is easy to listen to..the simplicity of the instrumentation is refreshing...and harmony is right on!

Awesome production, vocals, guitar playing. Really listenable.

This is a very nice song with a unique melody that works really well with the lyrics. Keep up the good work.
