[Intro]

[Verse 1]

     Em  B7/F#         G
If I had nothing to my name
    Adim           G
But photographs of you
Adim             Em    C
Rescued from the flame

        Em  B7/F#        G
That is all I would ever need
   Adim          Em
As long as I can read
       G/B             C#dim
What’s written on your face


[Pre-Chorus 1]

Cmaj7     B11           Em       G 
      The strength that shines behind your eyes
Cmaj7     B11      Em              B11
      The hope and light that will never die


[Chorus 1]

Em     C           G    D
   One promise you made
Em     C            G        D
   One promise that always remains
Em    Em7       C#dim
   No matter the price
  Cmaj7         C     Cm            G
A promise to survive, persevere and thrive
          Dsus4  D
As you’ve always done


[Verse 2]

        Em        B7/F#         G
And you said, the poison in the kiss
       Adim         G
Is the lie upon the lips
Adim                  Em      C
Truer words were never shared

       Em        B7/F#          G
When I feel like lies are all I hear
  Adim            Em
I pull my memories near
    G/B                  C#dim  B11
The one thing they can’t take


[Chorus 2]

Em         C           G    D
   And one promise you made
Em     C            G        D
   One promise that always remains
Em    Em7       C#dim
   No matter the price
  Cmaj7         C     Cm            G
A promise to survive, persevere and thrive
          Dsus4  D
As you’ve always done


[Bridge]

Eb                         G
   The books still open on the table
Bb                 Bb7        Eb
   The bells still ringing in the air
Bb                  Bb7             Ebm   B
   The dreams still clinging to the pillow
Abm                           B     B7
    The song still singing in a prayer


[Verse 3]

       Em      B7/F#                  G
And my soul is stretching through the roots
   Adim        G
To memories of you
Adim                  Em    C
Back through time and space

         Em     B7/F#         G
To carry on the faces and the names
    Adim          C#dim
And photographs of you
B11              G      B
Rescued from the flames


[Chorus 3]

Em     C           G    D
   One promise you made
Em     C            G        D
   One promise that always remains
Em    Em7       C#dim
   No matter the price
  Cmaj7         C     Cm            G
A promise to survive, persevere and thrive
    B11               Em
And dare to rise once more
  Cmaj7         C     Cm            
A promise to survive, persevere and thrive
                    G
Fill the world with life
          Dsus4  D
As you’ve always done

                 Em          D#6         G           Cdim        G
