Lyrics

Promise

Written By: Chris Bondy

Verse 1
Every love I knew before
Had my best but wanted more
But you not only love the best of me
You even love the rest of me

Pre-Chorus
So here is a promise just for you
A promise I will always pursue

Chorus
A promise of my love from day to day
A promise that you’ll always hear me say
I’ll be strong when you’re afraid
I’ll wipe your tears away
I’ll do what it takes to make you see
That I love you and you’re everything to me

Verse 2
You say this promise is so nice
That you’d like to hear it twice
I grab your hand and pull you near
Then I whisper in your ear

Pre-Chorus
So here is a promise just for you
A promise I will always pursue

Chorus
A promise of my love from day to day
A promise that you’ll always hear me say
I’ll be strong when you’re afraid
I’ll wipe your tears away
I’ll do what it takes to make you see
That I love you and you’re everything to me

Bridge
Tell me your hopes desires and dreams
And every fear that’s in between
You can tell me anything
I’ll do the same and I’ll bring

Chorus
A promise of my love from day to day
A promise that you’ll always hear me say
I’ll be strong when you’re afraid
I’ll wipe your tears away
I’ll do what it takes to make you see
That I love you and you’re everything to me

Nature's so fine

that it compares

as you and your wonderful ways

then there's you

All She Wants

Written By: Chris Bondy

Verse 1
All she wants
is to be loved, respected
needed, protected
and listened to when nothing's going right

All she wants
is to be hugged and kissed
danced with and missed
when she's gone away overnight

Bridge 1
She hopes
she can
find herself a man
who won't be something he's not

She's a
smart girl
she doesn't need the world
just to give it all he's got

Verse 2
All she wants
is a walk on the beach
a strong hand within reach
as the breeze blows through her hair

All she wants
is to look at the stars
on the hood of a car
a special moment to share

Bridge 2
She's tired
she's lonely
and she feels like the only
one who feels this way

but don't
get it wrong
she is brave and strong
and knows it will happen one day

Verse 3
All she wants
isn't all that much
just a soft touch
and a whisper in her ear

All she wants
is to share her dreams
and now it seems
this will be her year

I Want to Tell You That I Love You

Written By: Chris Bondy

Verse 1
I want to tell you that I love you
but the words don't ever come
I've been close so many many times
but close won't ever get it done

I want to tell you that I love you
but it's courage that I lack
I'm not sure what I'm afraid of
maybe you won't say it back

Bridge
I must have had a thousand chances
but one by one they pass me by
it's important that I tell you
love can't be implied

Verse 2
I want to tell you that I love you
and I think this will be the day
when you walk through the front door
I will sit you down and say

I want to tell you that I love you
I should have said it long ago
I was certain that I loved you
from the very first hello

Bridge 2
Someone's calling on the phone
I pick it up and I hear
there has been a fatal car crash
the words ring in my ear

Verse 3
I want to tell you that I love you
but I waited a day too long
I'm finally brave enough to tell you
but I can't because you're gone
but I can't because you're gone
but I can't because you're gone

Less About Me And More About We

Written By: Chris Bondy

Verse 1
I can see us growing apart day after day
lately it seems like you are a million miles away
I can tell you're losing your hope and you're dissatisfied
I think that both of us owe at least one more try

Pre-Chorus
We're clever
We'll never
Say never
However

Chorus
We need to think less about me and more about we
if we don't I guarantee we'll never see
tomorrow
and I know
that you agree
We need to think less about me and more about we

Verse 2
We're close to calling it quits and we know somehow
we need to find a fix well maybe this is how

Pre-Chorus
We're clever
We'll never
Say never
However

Chorus
We need to think less about me and more about we
if we don't I guarantee we'll never see
tomorrow
and I know
that you agree
We need to think less about me and more about we

Bridge
It's not always bad
I can still remember the good time we had
but why do we tend to
focus on all the negative things we say and do

Chorus
We need to think less about me and more about we
if we don't I guarantee we'll never see
tomorrow
and I know
that you agree
We need to think less about me and more about we

Where I'll Stay

Written By: Chris Bondy

Verse 1
Are you here
It's not clear
you're high then low
your yes means no
you are so
insincere
insincere

you pretend
you need a friend
you will not split
but won't commit
but will permit
you to pretend
pretend

Chorus
If you leave today
I will say
I am going to stay

Verse
How can I
even try
to talk to you
it's pointless to
you don't care who
or why

Chorus
If you leave today
I will say
I am going to stay

Bridge
You said you need hands on
well there was a time I needed them too
but you weren't willing to wait long
that won't work that just won't do

Verse 3
you look at me
and you see
heavy sighs
and rolling eyes
and too many lies
guarantee
guarantee

Chorus
If you leave today
I will say
I am going to stay

Where Those Lips Have Been

Written By: Chris Bondy

Verse 1
He took a vow for life
but he likes to cheat
and leave his lonely wife
believing in deceit

He tells her all the time
you're the only one for me
but last year there were nine
and last month there were three

Chorus
He does't really care
who when or where
as a matter of fact it's all a big joke to him
he goes home each night
and kisses his wife
she doesn't know where those lips have been
she doesn't know where those lips have been

Verse 2
He laughs behind her back
and runs around all day
he cannot keep track
of all the hearts he's played

Chorus
He does't really care
who when or where
as a matter of fact it's all a big joke to him
he goes home each night
and kisses his wife
she doesn't know where those lips have been
she doesn't know where those lips have been

Bridge
Tonight he finally made
a careless mistake
his wife came home from work
early to find out
she's been married to a jerk

Chorus 2
He wakes up black and blue
in a room at the ICU
the doctors think that he might walk again
but as he looks down
at a swollen frown
he doesn't know where those lips have been
he doesn't know where those lips have been

Because she sat with you

Written By: Chris Bondy

Verse 1

We’ve all seen kindness
Emin A
that we’ll never forget
C G
You’ve had a friend for so long
Dmin E
You still remember the day you met

Chorus
A E Dbmin
You ate your lunch alone in school
D E
noone cared

and noone talked to you
A E Dbmin
But when she sat beside you

you opened up

and she befriended you
F# Bmin
Her friends abandoned her
E D
still she sat with you
E D
a friendship that will last

until the end of time
D
because she took a stand

She would not believe

what they made you out to be

That’s the reason why
Dmin E
she saw what they’d never see

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge
Dmin
Her friends despised you
Gmin
and chastised you
Dmin C
because you would not become one of them
Dmin
They told lies to
Gmin
demoralize you
Dmin C
but they failed and in the end
Dmin E E7
you gained a lifelong friend
(Repeat Chorus)

Smila Again

Written By: Chris Bondy

Verse 1
Try to figure out this place I'm in
it leaves me so unsure of where to begin
ignorance is thrown into my hands
as I bury my head deep down in the sand

Pre-Chorus
You can deny it and tell me I'm wrong
but you know it's true and it won't be too long
before we're

Chorus
all at each other's throats
no one cares cuz that hurts most
what the hell are we going to do then
shrug it off and smile again

Verse 2
It's tough to swallow when they don't seem to care
you try to reach them but they're not really there
you grow numb to such heartless ways
looking for the words you didn't say

Pre-Chorus
You can deny it and tell me I'm wrong
but you know it's true and it won't be too long
before we're

Chorus
all at each other's throats
no one cares cuz that hurts most
what the hell are we going to do then
shrug it off and smile again

Bridge
So much time's been wasted
letting it bring me down
Don't feel that I can change it
it's more than just standing ground
I'm not alone

Verse 3
What's it going to take for people to see
that arrogance is breeding inability
how do I stop it from constricting me
how can I be heard when there's no time to breathe

Pre-Chorus
You can deny it and tell me I'm wrong
but you know it's true and it won't be too long
before we're

Chorus
all at each other's throats
no one cares cuz that hurts most
what the hell are we going to do then
shrug it off and smile again
