‘Promise’ is an emotional musical expression. Written and sung by the English singer, songwriter, musician, and composer- Benjamin John Howard, this melody was released in 2011.
This whole song is structured to suggest a definitive separation- a long one, so we see Howard appealing to his interest to wait for him in a subtle, low-pitched yet deep voice. He seeks her commitment even as he questions her, “Who am I?” through a good portion of the song only to know where he stands. For that is the only way for him to consider returning home.
The lyrics are pretty intriguing and deep, and the music- cozy with soft meaningful guitar strumming that gets a little assertive going forward in the track as he firmly begins to question. The song could make you freeze in time. And what makes this song beautiful is that despite the tinge of melancholy, it is tranquilizing.
Promise is harmony for your soul, taking you through a magical parallel universe!
