lyrics

When we tried to escape
Her hand slipped from mine
And I heard her screaming "go on, go on and I'll meet you on the other side"
But she never came
And I waited for days
And so I stand right here until she reappears

Cause I said I would, I said I would
One day I'll laugh and say "you're late"
Until then right here I'll wait
Cause I said I would

Well I heard from back home
That she's still alive
And so I'm hoping beyond all hope
What they say is not a lie
But I'll never leave
Until we're free
And so I stand right here
Until you're here my dear

Cause I said I would, I said I would
One day I'll laugh and say "you're late"
Until then right here I'll wait
Cause I said I would

When we left we made a plan
You go east and I'll stay west
We'll meet back up when we can
Now they're saying that we should have stayed
Never left or tried to escape
But they weren't there so they can't say
No they can't say

Cause I said I would, I said I would
One day I'll laugh and say "you're late"
Until then right here I'll wait
Cause I said I would
