The Promise by Within Temptation

I was very fortunate to have found the song The Promise by Within Temptation for my translated ghost story The Promise. I recalled that this is one of Darly’s favorite bands. The Dutch band, Within Temptation is a melodic progressive rock with stunning female vocals, the vocalist Sharon Den Adel sings with a lot of power, a siren in her voice, and in this song, it’s almost haunting, but somewhat angelic vocals. Her voice gives me goosebumps while listening to The Promise…it’s just that good. I’m surprise to say that I do like this band, might be shocking for Darly to find out.

The Promise by within Temptation Lyrics,

On behalf of her love
She no longer sleeps
Life had no longer meaning
Nothing to make her stay
She sold her soul away

I held you tight to me
You slipped away
You promised to return to me
And I believed, I believed

After the night he died
I wept my tears until they dried
But the pain stayed the same
I didn’t want him to die all in vain
I made a promise to revenge his soul in time
I’ll make them bleed down at my feet

I held you tight to me
But,you slipped away
You promised to return to me
And I believed

Sometimes I wonder
Could I have known about their true intentions?
As the pain stayed the same
I’m going to haunt them down all the way
I made a promise to revenge his soul in time
One by one they were surprised

I held you tight to me
But,you slipped away
You promised to return to me
And I believed

I held you tight to me
´But,you slipped away
You promised to return to me
And I believed
