Promise  The Novel Ideas

Chords and Lyrics by Daniel Radin
Here we are now in the backyard On the warm ground out at sundown
[E]But in twelve days I'll be halfway
[E]Cross the world, I'm too tired to be afraid
You've got green eyes, I had foresight
[E]When I said we'd be good I was so right
If we lay here, spend every day here[Aadd4]
[F#m]Well our legs might take[Aadd4] root and we'll grow dear
[E] [Aadd4] 
I made a promise to
[E]I made a promise to
[E]I made a promise to you
[F#m] [C#m] [A]  
[E] [Aadd4]  
I'd protect you if I had to
[E]So the bad parts never get through
From the outside into your life[Aadd4]
[E]We can try but we might have some hard nights
Now we can't speak 'neath the pine trees[Aadd4]
[E]And I swear that there's air but I can't breathe
I need your heat, I've got cold feet[Aadd4]
[F#m]It's the thought that st[Aadd4]ill makes this so easy
[E] [Aadd4] 
I made a promise to
[E]I made a promise to
[E]I made a promise to you
[F#m]That we'd still fe[C#m]el brand[A] new
[E]That we'd still feel brand new
[E]That we'd still feel something
[F#m] [C#m] [A]  
[E]Bsus[Aadd4]4 E ([Bsus4]x4)[C#m7]
She's not too fond of history
[C#m7]Hearing loud of [Bsus4]abrasive speech[E]
[C#m7]She's unique in[Bsus4] the way she eat[Aadd4]s
[C#m7]oh yeah she lov[Bsus4]es me[Aadd4]
[C#m7]Why she does [Bsus4]hell I cannot say[E]
[C#m7]I can't seem to [Bsus4]stay in one pla[E]ce
[C#m7]Always gone and[Bsus4] I'm far away[Aadd4]
[C#m7] from the smil[Bsus4]e on her face[Aadd4]
[C#m7] [Bsus4] [E]  
(Repeats throughout last section)
[E]Bsus[Aadd4]4 E ([Bsus4]x6)[C#m7]
Was it something that I couldn't say?
Fast enough to get away
And though I tried to make a clean escape
You left me with an even break
And i think I saw myself in you
But I think you saw a proper fool
And I know we broke every rule
With everything we didn't do
I'll remember every day
If you remember every dumb mistake
That you made cause you were late
But its my fault I made you wait
In this city I cant speak
Well you know this place is killing me
And it's harder to believe
But it's hard enough to watch you leave
