My Response to That Song: Tracy Chapman’s "The Promise"

My Promise
You asked, “Wait for me?”
You said, “I’ll come for you.”
Then you traveled far
And I reserved a place for you in my heart
Did you think of me?
Did you miss me once in a while?
You said that you’d return
You’d return and fill that space in my heart

Remembering
Your talk
Your lies
Your empty words
To find your way back to me
And I was here waiting
Did you dream of me
Like I dreamt of you?
Did you even think of me
Could you even hear the breaking of my heart
Remembering
Your talk
Your lies
Your empty words
To find your way back to me
And I was here waiting

I’d longed for you
And I had desired
to see your face your smile
But now, please stay wherever you are
Remembering
Your talk
Your lies
Your empty words
To find your way back to me
And I was here waiting
Together again
Used to be my only wish
In your arms
where I thought I could be whole
But now I’ll make a promise
and it’s one that I can keep
I vow to let you go
Please stay away from me
That place I held
for you, for you

has been filled
