Abdul, Paula - The Promise Of A New Day Lyrics




EAGLE'S CALLING AND HE'S CALLING YOUR NAME
TIDES ARE TURNING BRINGING WINDS OF CHANGE
WHY DO I FEEL THIS WAY
THE PROMISE OF A NEW DAY

[Chorus:]
THE PROMISE
THE PROMISE OF A NEW DAY

AS THRU TIME THE EARTH MOVES UNDER MY FEET
ONE STEP CLOSER TO MAKE LOVE COMPLETE
WHAT HAS THE FINAL SAY

THE PROMISE OF A NEW DAY

[Chorus x 2]

AND SO TIME OVER TIME
WHAT WILL CHANGE THE WORLD
NO ONE KNOWS
(No One Knows)
SO THE ONLY PROMISE IS A DAY TO LIVE, TO GIVE
AND TO SHARE WITH ONE ANOTHER

SEE THE WISDOM FROM MISTAKES IN OUR PAST
HEAR THE YOUNGER GENERATION ASK
WHY DO I FEEL THIS WAY
THE PROMISE OF A NEW DAY

[Chorus x 2]

AND SO TIME OVER TIME
WHAT WILL CHANGE THE WORLD
NO ONE KNOWS
SO THE ONLY PROMISE IS A DAY TO LIVE, TO GIVE
AND TO SHARE WITH ONE ANOTHER

[Repeat]

Abdul, Paula The Promise Of A New Day Comments
  1. Ultraviolet Morgan

    I remeber this song was supposed to have an environmental messege... funny that it needed so much boobie time for that.

  2. Lalo 3333

    Good classic.
    Greetings from México!

  3. Samuel Griffin

    Females this generation are downright haters saying negative stuff about Paula Abdul she was the real deal

  4. Samuel Griffin

    Where were you 29 years ago in 1991

  5. Samuel Griffin

    Paula Abdul still sexy then and now

  6. Dragnet5

    She looked hot in that video

  7. LKx979

    I like the concept for the video, and Paula looks really hot, but I hate the way it is edited and the 'stretching' that distorts it.

  8. LGKids

    Slept on video and song here and a Video Jukebox always play! Peace!

  9. Titcho Baluarte

    I'm here because living color parody, but I'm surprised. This music and video clip is amazing. Well produced, beautiful, actual. One of the best Paula's songs.

  10. Mike Grayson

    I was so in love with Paula Abdul in the 90's. She kinda disappeared for a few years. She is more talented than Madonna and I never understood why she was not more popular.

  11. Kim Carlson

    She is so fuckin fly

  12. Mitch Bray

    Reminds me of The Touch from Transformers The Movie.

  13. HomewreckerHaHa

    In living Color brought me here. LMAO

  14. TravelinBand747

    This song makes me imagine stepping outside on a beautiful spring morning on my way to get my cup of joe (Dunkin Donuts for me, but whatever suits you!). The kind of morning where you look at the sky and know that it's going to be a damn fine day.

  15. I am a man and I'm a poof80808

    Paula Abdul was and still is queen of dancing.

  16. BRUTUSPLAC

    MTV TOP 20 Countdown September (??) 1991 #4 dropped from #1 previous week ( VHS TAPE poorly edited)

  17. Robin Holbrook

    Her and Janet J sound alot alike to me but both are my favs . No doubt about Paula is forever my girl. And this song was spinning in my head had to come here . Promises of a new day. Winds of Change I'm all for it.

  18. VIVIAN BLAKE

    My favorite Paula video and song

  19. alicja D.

    Naj...,Naj...,Naj...,i niema skończonści dla Naj... piękna we wszystkim... nie muszę tłumaczyć ... PIĘKNA WE WSZYSTKIM...

    "The Promise of a New Day"
    - Paula Abdul


    Eagle's calling
    And he's calling your name
    Tides are turning bringing winds of change
    Why do I feel this way
    The promise of a new day
    The promise
    The promise of a new day


    As through time
    The earth moves
    Under my feet
    One step closer
    To make love complete
    What has the final say
    The promise of a new day

    And so time over time
    What will change the world
    No one knows
    So the only promise
    Is a day to live, to give


    And share with one another
    See the wisdom
    From mistakes in our past
    Hear the younger
    Generation ask
    Why do I feel this way
    The promise of a new day
    The promise
    The promise of a new day


    As through time
    The earth moves
    Under my feet
    One step closer
    To make love complete
    What has the final say
    The promise of a new day


    And so time over time
    What will change the world
    No one knows
    So the only promise
    Is a day to live, to give
    And share with one another

  23. Joelle meaning Jehovah is God

    Jesus loves you everyone. Remember that. He has never forsaken you. So do not forsake him. Build a relationship with him that is unbreakable. Have a good day.

  24. Catriona Stokes

    This was probably the best song on Spellbound. I have to say, I wasn't a big fan of Spellbound. It was disappointing. The writing was awful. Forever Your Girl and Head Over Heels were far superior compared to it!!!!!

  25. duckiedale80

    Promise of a thin me!

  26. Gary W

    This song is true for believers in Christ are promised a new day

  27. Walt Gogo

  31. - Blythe

    People sleep on Paula's talent too much.
    Laker Girl; helped choreograph Janets early days; she had an amazing voice, great vibes, incredible choreography and was so gorgeous.
    When I was in junior high school the 3:06 mark had me questioning my whole life! 😂
    💜💜

  32. Dallas Morgan

    New n unbroken!

  33. DrRiddlez2015

    This song went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1991

  34. Dan Suti

    This song is 28 years old and it still rocks. Paula Abdul is so awesome. Listening September 2019

  35. Deborah Kerns

    Such an upbeat, positive song. Makes me remember the carefree, fun times...

  36. knewrome

    Ok, at first I was genuinely concerned Paula was going to get Velociraptored in the high grass. By the end of the video, I was disappointed it didn't happen. The synchronized swim-thrashing at the end was an interesting conceptual choice and really tugged at my art-loins. We also see Abdul with an subtle, but pointed nod to TLC with her ass in the jungle, literally chasing waterfalls, as we've all been clearly advised NOT to do. We see some of these waterfalls actually flowing backward away from Paula. I enjoy this metaphor's allusion to the fact that even if you catch the waterfall after a good chasing, it's still going to think it would be nice to get away. Sometimes you wanna go where everybody know your name

  37. Andrew HG

    A friend went to Hawaii to a interchange class program, he came back with a tatto and a mariguana, i thougt what happend to my friend, then he put this song on the stereo and I think well not everything goes bad isn´t??

  61. Chief Smokey

    Was this filmed in widescreen and compressed into 4:3 for transmission on MTV or something? Or is intentionally supposed to be squashed?

  62. NOT YOU

    This video is always in this format.

  63. Letty aguinaga

    LOVE YOU PAULA ABDUL #1 LETTY

  64. Robert Wiegman

    In that waterfall and her two piece bathing suit Paula definitely hit sex symbol status with this video :)

  65. Angie Haylock

    True beauty. Big time sensuality and pure guidance and truth.

  66. Ladee DeLace

    I don't know why they spoofed this on In living color.. Regardless of how they edit this video, she doesn't look fat at all.

  67. Gabriella Curti

    Che schifo

  68. Music Channel.M

    I loved this video and still appreciate it but why is this composite so cheep? I didn’t recognize it at that time tho...

  69. Lawson One

    This song would always put me in a good mood. Adding to the list. :)

  70. Jacob Scarr

    Number 1 on my birthday

  71. Bruno Meireles

    O áudio baixíssimo :c

  72. Stewie Dark Child

    2019 I was here 🤗😁🙄

  73. Danimal1177

    Despite _In Living Color's_ parody, I never realized back then how the video "stretched" Paula's body to make her appear thin. I didn't know she had gained weight at this point in time. A few years ago I found the video of this video that was not stretched and I can see why Paula was embarrassed by her size. Remember, Paula is only 5 feet tall, and if you watched the "unstretched" video Paula's body looks a lot like Snooki's from _The Jersey Shore._ Very thick, very wide.

    Ultraviolet Morgan

    And? What's your point...

    Ultraviolet Morgan

    Oh the horror!

  74. Troy Anderson Anderson

    Thank you for the peaceful song fall 1991😊🐹🐩🐦🐼🐆🍎

    Time. 91. Lindo

  77. Julia Angelina

    I remember my mother watching the video and disgustedly commenting on how they made Paula Abdul look taller and skinnier in it

    Marie Marie

    Unfortunately, this video proved to be controversial for that reason. I don't think she chose this effect to look slimmer.

  78. Mike Davitt

    I wasn't a big pop music fan but did like everything that I heard her do. I never understood why she stopped but Madonna continued?

  79. Leroy

    She was nad still is Gorgeous, great dancer and has a good voice. Glad she is feeling better and performing again

  80. Boyle Heights 323

    "Promise of a thin me" lol

  81. Nzane Spontane

    Promise of a thin me....

  82. iflyTony

    Am I the only one who still sings the chorus "Promise of a thin me"???

  83. Odirlei Santos

    Love Paula - Beautiful vídeo, beautiful song

  84. elise linlette

    In Living Color brought me here!

  85. Simply Visual

    Paula was a much better dancer than she was a singer. However, her songs were catchy, which made them popular. If you listen to her 2008 hit "Dance Like There's No Tomorrow", you'll notice her voice was overly auto-tuned. I can guarantee that if auto-tune existed back in the 80s, they would've heavily used it on her. She just wasn't a great singer and that's why so many comedy shows spoofed her music videos.

  86. KS Chong

    Why can't modern music has good melody like in the 70s to 90s?

  87. Keyonte Dollison

    100%QueenOfPop-PaulaAbdul!!!!!!!!

  88. C. H.

    I love the message at the end of the video. The Indians say: “When the forest dies, we all die.” Leave the jungle alone. - The Rainforest Foundation International 🌿💚

  89. SirChivalRegal

    Yow! With age I've grown conservative! , I knew the video was saucy, but i seemed to forgot how much..........ouch. Nice Catchy song of course.

  90. Robin Taylor

    Oh my God I really miss the stuff I miss MTV VH1 I miss the late 80s early 90s.

  91. MIC

    I didn’t believe people when they said that she can’t sing and now I’m here like 👀👀🤭😐

  92. Tammy Leeder Whitaker

    Amen to the last words. Nature! Protect our Planet for future generations. They are depending on us!

  93. Tammy Leeder Whitaker

    Great Video! LOVE the message! Eagle ...Promise of a new day! We can make our World better! TIME for change! GOD

  94. Robert mas

    The video is just crap
