I Promise - Set It Off

If you stepped back
and realized,
I'm sure that you'll see
that these words that were spoken eventually
will dwell in my conscience
til my dying day
oh what can I say
to change your perception,
want me by your side?
The fact that you moved on
makes me wanna cry.
If you open your door
I'll be there with arms wide,
Just begging and praying
for one more goodbye.

So I'll wait for you
even though you don't want me to.
Because I'm not over you.
I promise.
This word they call love
come push or to shove
I meant it and now I'm in tears, my love.
Oh my love, oh..

I keep telling myself that
it's not what it seems
and wish that you wouldn't
keep hounting my dreams
I'll shoot out of bed and
wake up in a sweat.
How could I forget?
I imagined the worst when
you were on the phone
as you sat there and told me
that you were alone.
I could see him, I know how
he makes you behave;
that this wasn't the girl
that I kissed on our date

But I'll wait for you
even though you don't want me to.
Because I'm not over you.
I promise.
This word they call love
come push or to shove
I meant it and now I'm in tears..
Because I'm not over you,
I promise.
You won't see this face
Show up at your place
although I'm in town
I'll stay here, my love.
Oh my love, my love.
Oh my love.

And I should know better,
give up while I can,
and prove to the world
that I'll be my own man.
You broke me and took me
along for the ride
and this pain that you've left me
should make me subside.

But I'm not over you
(I'm not over you,
I'm not over you,
I'm not over you)
I promise.
This word they call love
come push or to shove
(I wish I could do anything
to get you back)
I meant it and now
I'm in tears.
Because I'm not over you,
('cause I'm over)
I promise.
You won't see this face
show up at your place
(don't let me go)
Although I'm in town
I'll stay here.
'Cause I'm not over you.
I promise.
This word they call love
come push or to shove.
I meant it and now
I'm in tears.
My love.
