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

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

    Promise me
    You won't let them put out your fire
    Put out your fire
    Promise me
    You won't let them put out your fire
    Put out your fire

    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

    Promise me
    You won't let them put out your fire
    Put out your fire
    Promise me
    You won't let them put out your fire
    Put out your fire

    Which star will I be thinking of tonight
    Tonight
    Which star will I be thinking of tonight
    Tonight

    Promise me
    You won't let them put out your fire
    Put out your fire
    Promise me
    You won't let them put out your fire
    Put out your fire

    Promise me (Why don't you)
    Promise me (Why don't you)
    Promise me (Why don't you)
    Promise me (Why don't you) Writer/s: CHRIS CORNELL, SAUL HUDSON
