Jason Vitelli: Confluence

A Promise

I made a promise to you and I don't even know why
But I saw your reflection in the window pane crying out
It said "It won't be long; I'll sing my song"
But just the same, you're not who you are supposed to be

What did I say; what did I do wrong?
Did I write too many love songs and not make a point to be strong
And to belong to myself instead of belonging to someone else?

Wait until the day is done; you won't fight anymore
Look inside, see you're alive and that's all you need to know

The fear beside you is soaking wet
Filled with the tears of yesterday's regret
As you pour the strife into a lonesome well
It comes to your senses that you'll never be alone
Oh you never will be alone
So you pour your heart into a savior
Be it truth or God or love or the music that plays you
And the sky will open wide
And tears roll down your smile
And you'll curse the day you kept you inside
You kept you inside

So don't you fret, oh no
Just sing to me again
