Promise

This song is by Chris Cornell.

The first time I ever saw you
You had that faraway look in your eyes
And heaven's eyes shined down upon you
And the whole room filled up with life

Now the cruel world, it's gonna try and change you
Try to hang you up and mess with your pride
Now the rich can just try to chain you
You got to keep your fire burning inside

Promise me you won't let them,
Put out your fire, (x2) / (repeat)

Now sometimes the world tries to slap you
And it seems to love watching you fall
I won't lie to you, it's gonna happen,
You got to pick yourself up and move on

-Which star will I be thinking of tonight?
-Tonight (- repeat)
Promise me you won't let them,
Put out your fire, (x2)
You won't let them - Put out your fire, (x2)
...Promise me -(Why don't you?)- (x4)
