When In RomeLyrics The Promise

The roots of When in Rome can be traced back to the Manchester group Beau Leisure, which all three members were involved with, alongside fashion designer Corinne Drewery. In the year 1984, Drewery would leave the group to start a new band, Swing Out Sister, alongside Andrew Connell and Martin Jackson. Mann, Farrington, and Floreale decided to keep making music under the name When in Rome.

The group was signed to 10 Records, a subsidiary of Virgin UK. The band’s single, “The Promise,” was a huge success, at which point When in Rome was asked to record an album. The song and album both did well in the United States and the United Kingdom. Several months later, their follow up single, “Heaven Knows,” was released. It did not do quite as well as “The Promise,” which was also featured in the 2004 movie Napoleon Dynamite. Floreale currently resides in Dallas, Texas. In recent years, he has been involved with a revived When in Rome. They are active as both a touring and recording band.

The best known songs of When in Rome include “The Promise,” “Heaven Knows,” “Everything,” and “Sight of Your Tears.”
