lyrics

Cross My Heart

You put it on hold and add it to the list
Of things you never meant to do
You say, “I never found the time, but I wanted to.”

“Yes, I cross my heart...I really wanted to.”

You talk a big game; I hear it’s easy
When you never play
You cast a mighty shadow standing on the head
of the kid who won the day

And I swear on all worth swearing on
I’d give it all away

It’s too much but I wanted to
Of a good thing but I had to choose
Between ‘I want’ and ‘what I have to do’
Side to side ‘till you lose your stride
Smiling wide ‘till your smiler died
I only want the good things when they’re new

But I cross my heart
I really wanted to

You say, “I don’t want to know.”
It’s better in the dark with your feet up off the floor
If you just leave the beast alone
He’s no reason to show
His face here anymore

But you’ve sang that song so many times

It’s too much but I wanted to
Of a good thing but I had to choose
Between ‘I want’ and ‘what I have to do’
Side to side ‘till you lose your stride
Smiling wide ‘till your smiler died
I only want the good things when they’re new
