The promise of you it sleeps in the air
The air that I breathe
And I know that it's true
Don't have to convince myself to believe, yeah

What secrets sleep in the heart of a man
And so much love wasted it slip right through my hands
You see it in the eyes of the lonely
As they make their weary way
Shimmer in the eyes of the longing
And I hear it say

The promise of you it sleeps in the air
The air that I breathe
And I know that it's true
Don't have to convince myself to believe, to believe

What secrets sleep in the heart of the night
And my dreams of salvation are slipping out of sight
In the shimmering moments of the twilight
The closing of the tide
The whisper on the wind of a rescue
The savior in time

The promise of you it sleeps in the air
The air that I breathe
And I know that it's true
Don't have to convince myself to believe

And all this time
I've been fighting my own private war
And all this time
You're the peace I searched for

The promise of you it sleeps in the air
The air that I breathe
And I know that it's true
Don't have to convince myself to believe, yeah

The promise of you it sleeps in the air
The air that I breathe
And I know that it's true
Don't have to convince myself to believe
