“The Promise” by Sturgill Simpson

“If you need a friend, don’t look to a stranger. You know in the end, ’ll always be there.”

If you need a friend
Don’t look to a stranger
You know in the end, I’ll always be there
But when you’re in doubt
And when you’re in danger
Take a look all around, and I’ll be there

I’m sorry, but I’m just thinking of the right words to say
know they don’t sound the way I planned to be
But around a while, I’ll make you fall for me
promise, I promise you I will

When your day is through
And so is your temper
You know what to do
I’m gonna always be there
Sometimes if shout
It’s not what’s intended
These words just come out
With no gripe to bear

I’m sorry, but I’m just thinking of the right words to say
know they don’t sound the way I planned to be
But around a while, I’ll make you fall for me
I promise you, I promise you I will

I know they don’t sound the way I planned to be
But if I had to walk the world to make you fall for me
I promise you, I promise you I will

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
