Title:  Promise
Artist: deliriou5
Source: King of Fools (Furious Records)

Transcribed by:Elliot Whiting (ellw@hotmail.com)

Best selling British single from deliriou5, reached No.20 in the
billboard charts.

Valvey distortion neccessary, reduce for verse or play softer so that
the signal breaks up less.



INTRO:
 What ever happened? [sample]
 G / Em7#9 / A x2
 G / Em7#9 / A / C

VERSE:
 G /Em(7#9) [Let ring]
          Did I wipe the tear, or did I spit in your face?
  Did I point the finger or give the hand of grace?
      C   F          Em(7#9)
  Oh why...does it come to this?

[Strike chords once]
  Em7(#9)                                         A
  Is it freedom that you want, or are the chains in your head?
    Em                         A
  Can a man play God, when He made his own bed?
     C     F         Em
  Oh why...does it come to this?

CHORUS:
G / Em7#9                          A
        Whatever happened to the love that you made?
G / Em7#9                          A
        Whatever happened to the prayer that you prayed?
G / Em7#9                          A          C
        Whatever happens to a promise these days?


VERSE:[Play each note of the chord, upwards]
            Em7                           A
     Did the Earth disappear, when you told of the truth,
            Em7                             A
     Of the lands you would conquer, of the mountains you'd move?
          C   F               Em
     Oh why...does it come to this?


[As before]
Did you covenant or live the dream in your head?
Would you die for her or rather raise the dead?
Oh when...will I learn from this?
