[Intro]
Em  C  G  D
Em  C  G  


[Verse 1]
     Em  B7/F#         G
If I had nothing to my name
    B7/D#          G
But photographs of you
B7/D#            Em    C
Rescued from the flame

        Em  B7/F#        G
That is all I would ever need
   B7/D#         G
As long as I can read
       B7/D#           Em
What’s written on your face


[Pre-Chorus 1]
Fmaj7     B7            Em       G 
      The strength that shines behind your eyes
Fmaj7     B7       Em              B7
      The hope and light that will never die


[Chorus 1]
Em     C           G    D
   One promise you made
Em     C            G        D
   One promise that always remains
Em    D         C#dim
   No matter the price
  C/B           C     C/B           G
A promise to survive, persevere and thrive
          D
As you’ve always done


[Verse 2]
        Em        B7/F#         G
And you said, the poison in the kiss
       B/D#         G
Is the lie upon the lips
B7/D#                 Em    C
Truer words were never said

       Em        B7/F#          G
When I feel like lies are all I hear
  B7/D#           G
I pull my memories near
    B7/D#               Em
The one thing they can’t take


[Chorus 2]
Em         C           G    D
   And one promise you made
Em     C            G        D
   One promise that always remains
Em    D         C#dim
   No matter the price
  C/B           C     C/B           G
A promise to survive, persevere and thrive
          D
As we’ve always done


[Bridge]
Eb                         G
   The books still open on the table
Bb                            Eb
   The bells still ringing in me yeah
Bb                                  B
   The dreams still clinging to the pillow
Ab                           B 
   The song still singing in a prayer


[Verse 3]
       Em      B7/F#                  G
And my soul is stretching through the roots
   B/D#        G
To memories of you
B7/D#                 Em    C
Back through time and space

         Em     B7/F#         G
To carry on the faces and the names
    B/D#           G
And photographs of you
B7/D#            B7
Rescued from the flames


[Chorus 3]
Em     C           G    D
   One promise you made
Em     C            G        D
   One promise that always remains
Em    D         C#dim
   No matter the price
  C/B           C     C/B           G
A promise to survive, persevere and thrive
    B7                C
And dare to rise once more
  C/B           C     C/B           B7
A promise to survive, persevere and thrive
                    G
Fill the world with life
          D6     D
As you’ve always done
