C                                        Em
Is this the promise that you made,
                          F                  G7
When you looked deep into my eyes?
                      C                       Em
When you held me tight in your arms?
                            F                       G7
When you pressed me close to your side?
              Am                 Em
I this the ode to love we sang,
                    F                        G7
Watching the blood-red sunset fall?
                C                       Em
As we held hands along the beach?
               F                       G7
I donít re-member them at all.

You keep me trapped inside this dream,
I wake up crying in the night.
My lips afraid to voice the scream,
Pretending it will be all right.
You hold the power in your arms,
And leave me dying on my cross.
Is this the magic spell you wove?
You do not understand your loss.


You led me to another place,
Iíve never been this way before.
You hide the truth behind a mask,
And keep me locked behind your door.
What is the reason for your fear?
Where is the faith behind your test?
What is this need to keep control,
And kill the love within my breast?


Instrumental Break: Play Whole Verse Through

You are the keeper of my fate,
You lead me dancing by a thread.
Sweeping away the broken dreams,
Fearful of every word you said.
I keep on praying for a change,
Searching for pathways in between.
Looking for answers in your eyes,
Mourning the love that might have been.
