“...Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win.”
--Stephen King


You know you said that you would be there
Whenever I needed a friend.
You said that you would always
Lend your helping hand.

But it seems you have forgotten
Your promise to be true,
And now I am a-cryin',
Just left here needing you.

You said to call on you, brother,
Any hour of the night,
That you'd leave your widow open
And a candle burning bright.

But, hun, it looks like you've forgotten
Your promise to be true,
And here I am a-cryin',
Just left here needing you.

You said you'd always love me,
As if I were family,
But it seems like you were only
Blowing off a little steam.

Because it looks like you've forgotten
Your promise to be true,
And maybe I'll just cry here,
Because I will always need you.

But don't you worry you've forgotten
Your promise to be true,
Because I will always be here;
I'll always be here for you.
