  • What would You say
    If I asked You not to go?
    To forget everyone, forget everything
    And start over with me
    Would you take my hand and never let me go
    Promise me you'll never let me go

    And now the stars aren't out tonight
    But neither are we to look up at them
    Why does Hello feel like Goodbye?
    And these memories can't replace
    These wishes I wished and dreams I've chased
    Take this broken heart and make it right

    I feel like I've lost everything when You're gone Left remembering what it's like
    To have you here with me
    I thought you should know
    You're not making this easy

    I never thought I'd be the one to say
    Please don't, well please don't leave me

    I feel like I've lost everything when You're gone
    Left remembering what it's like
    To have you here with me
    I thought you should know
    You're not making this easy
    You're not making this easy(easy, easy, easy)

    Take my hand, and never let me go
    Take my hand, and never let me go
    Promise me...
    You'll never let go
    Never let me go
    Never let me go
    You'll never let me go

    I feel like I've lost everything when You're gone
    Left remembering what it's like
    To have you here with me
    I thought you should know
    You're not making this easy(x5)

    I'll fall asleep tonight, cause
    That brings me closer to You Writer/s: JACK KNIGHT, STEVEN A JORDAN, TIJUAN FRAMPTON

  • Derek from Wallingford, CtThis song was on repeat for me after my first real heartbreak in HS. Still blast it once and a while, well because these memories can't replace these wishes I wished and dreams I've chased
  • M1k3 from Methuen, MaThe song is about Andrew and in the video i guess that the girl was his actual girlfriend
  • Sunny from Clinton, IlPromise is a song displaying how teens, and others, yearn for another chance, and basically just asks for a Promise never to let go, and a promise that they would be granted another chance..
  • Adriana from Williamsville, NyThis song great i luv it <3
  • Vilena from Rowland Hts, CaI love this song so much! this song is such a sad song =[
