Can't Lie to My Heart
by Richard Marx



I whispered you
Words I thought I'd never say
We played the game
But then we tossed the rules away
Could deny it
Justify it
But we both know we went too far
Oh, I can feel you
And I need you
No matter wherever you are

[Chorus]
I don't want to watch my love come crashing down
But I can't lie to my heart
I don't really want your memory hangin' 'round
But baby I just can't lie to my heart

I have loved you
Longer than you've even known
When you hurt I hurt
I'm your flesh and you're my bone
If I could only
Be two people
Darlin' I swear we'd both be with you
Oh, I know I'm selfish
But I'm helpless
I want you and nothing else will do

[Chorus]

I won't pretend anymore
Been hiding too long
I won't go on like before
I'm not that strong
I can feel it when I'm near you
It's not healthy to need you this way
Try to fight it, get inside it
But this pain is stronger than me and it won't go away

[Chorus]
