Song title: Cross my heart


Cross my heart

First time I crossed my heart
I was beggin’ baby, please
At your bedside, down on my knees
When I crossed my heart
When I crossed my heart
I crossed my heart,
pretty baby over you

Second time I crossed my heart
rain came in from the south
I was lyin’ there with something
sweet and salty in my mouth
When I crossed my heart
When I crossed my heart
When I crossed my heart,
pretty darlin’ over you

Well, you may think the world’s black and white
And you’re dirty or you’re clean
You better watch out you don’t slip
Through them spaces in between

Where the night gets sticky
and the sky gets black
I grabbed you, baby,
and you grabbed me back
And we crossed our hearts
We crossed our hearts
Yeah, I crossed my heart...

Little boys, little girls
They know their wrongs from their rights
Once you cross your heart
You ain’t ever supposed to lie

Well, life ain’t nothin’ but a cold hard ride
I ain’t leavin’ ‘til I’m satisfied
I cross my heart
Yeah, I cross my heart
Well, I cross my heart,
pretty darlin’ over you
