The Promise Lyrics

If I had nothing to my name
But photographs of you
Rescued from the flames
That is all I would ever need
As long as I can read
What's written on your face
The strength that shines
Behind your eyes
The hope and light
That will never...

    If and when he passes away, he wants to be assured person /people who were close to him will continue to live and be happy .He wants them to fulfill their dreams and goals and not be saddened by his absence.

    What this song is saying is as long as he gets a piece of whoever he’s talking about in the song, than he still has that hope & motivation to keep pushing through.
