Promise Me

It’s Song Lyric Sunday hosted by Jim Adams of A Unique Title For Me. This week’s prompt is Promise/Vow/Oath. Ever since I saw this prompt on Jim’s post a few weeks ago this song has been going round in my head. Not really sure why it stuck out so much – I think I just liked it at the time.

According to Wikipedia the song originally failed to chart when it was released in 1990 but after a successful UK tour it was rereleased in 1991 and peaked at number 3 in May. To be honest I don’t remember hearing much more about Beverley Craven after this song but apparently she has continued writing and performing and her 6th album, Woman to Woman, was released in 2018.

‘Promise Me’ would have been in the charts when I was just finishing up at high school. Maybe that’s why it’s memorable? I think that summer I went off on a tour with The Continentals (a Christian young people’s choir) to Scandinavia and Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. It was probably pretty cringy stuff when I think back now but I guess it was different days. That was my first trip away without my family for more than a few days. I think we were gone about 5 weeks altogether. These days it’s holidays in the sun that are the done thing after finishing school (maybe not this year though).

Promise Me
by Beverley Craven

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 wanna 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
‘Cause 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
‘Cause 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
Promise me you’ll wait for me
‘Cause 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

    1. Hmm okay. I’ll look at that link. I thought that was the one I’d used. Promise Me is by Beverley Craven. That’s a shame that the link didn’t work for you. Not sure how I can fix that?
