Cross my Heart

By
More by this author
Driving into Nazareth
Clutching a smile in
The palm of my right hand
You were supposed to be
In the passenger’s seat
But things didn’t go according to plan

Honey, I miss the way
You sang about the weather
And how we’d all fall down
I’m prayin’ to the clouds
I’m crying out loud
But life ain’t a merry-go-round

Give ‘em an inch and they take a yard
And the next thing ya know
You’re six feet under
Let ‘em play with a drop a rain
And then-
You’re caught in the middle of thunder

So let it ring from the hills of freedom
Sign away my rights
Cross my heart and hope to die
Baby, why you still on my mind?

I forgot my directions
And shot it up to third gear
Out the window went north and west
Tuesday’s gone but
Wednesday’s smilin’ at me
I pretend you’re dust, but, baby-
You’re still the best

So let it ring from the hills of freedom
Sign away my rights
Cross my heart and hope to die
Baby, why you still on my mind?
