Promise Me - Beverly Craven

This is my sister's favorite. This song means something to her, I know that for a fact but not for the reason. I also like this song but I really cannot relate to the lyrics.

It was like a love story for her and I always tend to picture her actually "lighting a cigarette" when the first line of this song is sung. There will always be a picture of her. Perhaps, this reminds me of her image when she lights up a cigarette. She reminds me of my mom who has been smoking probably even before we were born.

There was always a plea from us to make her quit the vice but she wouldn't. She quit for a short time. That was just a New Year's resolution. Typical resolutions, it didn't last long. She just couldn't resist it! When I grew a lot older, I let her be. Besides, I really cannot give her the things she enjoys the most and it appears that smoking has become her nature -as natural as breathing. But there you are... this is my smokey story about this song.

Lyrics of the song Promise Me
You light up another cigarette and I pour the wine
It's four o'clock in the morning and it's starting to get light
Now I'm right where I want to be losing track of time
But I wish that it was still last night

You look like you're in another world but I can read your mind
how can you be so far away lying by my side
when I go away I'll miss you
and I will be thinking of you
every night and day just ...

Promise me you'll wait for me
'cos I'll be saving all my love for you
and I will be home soon
Promise me you'll wait for me
I need to know you feel the same way too
and I'll be home, I'll be home soon

When I go away I'll miss you and I will be thinking of you
every night and day just ...

Promise me you'll wait for me
'cos I'll be saving all my love for you
and I will be home soon
Promise me you'll wait for me
I need to know you feel the same way too
and I'll be home, I'll be home
