I Promise You I Do Swear


one fish, two fish, red fish ...

I know you promise all your strength

 

But tonight I am so tired

 

I look out my window and see the empty trees

 

And try to calm my body so wired.

 

I know that you my Lord have suffered

 

Ten thousand more times than me

 

But I feel weak and oh so tired

 

Can you see me Lord on bended knee?

 

I really try to do all that I can

 

To be a rock for him

 

To show him how much I really care

 

But to them I am no longer their fan.

 

They run and hide when I walk in side

 

I know they fear my face

 

But who will stand up for my brother

 

Who in this human race?

 

I put the world on hold for now

 

As I target in on your care

 

I will do what needs to be done for you

 

I promise you I do swear.

 

The guidelines do not match your case

 

You are in a league of your own

 

Why are my eyes the only to see

 

I will call in the troops that I now know…….

 

I promise you, I do swear.

 

Love you brother.
