Napoleon DynamiteThe Promise

If you need a friend, don't look to a stranger
You know in the end I'll always be there
And 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
(I promise)
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be
(I promise)
But if you wait around a while, I'll make you fall for me
(I promise)
I 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 I 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
(I promise)
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be
(I promise)
But if you wait around a while, I'll make you fall for me
(I promise)
I promise, I promise you

I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say
(I promise)
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be
(I promise)
And if I have to walk the world to make you fall for me
I promise you, I promise you I will

I'll tell ya, I need to tell ya, I gotta tell ya, I've gotta tell ya

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

I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say
(I promise)
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be
(I promise)
And if I have to walk the world to make you fall for me
I promise you, I promise you I will, I will, I will, I will
