Cross My Heart Lyrics

by Bruce Springsteen

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
And 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

Well little boys, little girls
Hell they know their wrongs from their rights
Hey once you cross your heart
Hey 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

Well, I cross my heart, well, I cross my heart
Well, I cross my heart, well, I cross my heart
Well, I cross my heart
