Cross My Heart [#][Demo Version]
by Phil Ochs



I don't know
But it seems that every single dream's
Painted pretty pictures in the air
And it tumbles in despair

And it starts to bend
Until by the end its a nightmare
I'm gonna give all I've got to give
Cross my heart, and I hope to live

I don't know
But it's true, so many things you do
Please you so they leave feeling warm
It's the calm before the storm

For the habit grows and before you know it you're deformed
I'm gonna give all I've got to give
Cross my heart, and I hope to live
I don't know

But I see that every thing is free
When you're young and treasures you can take
But the bridge is gonna break
You reach the end screaming

"It's all been a mistake"
I'm gonna give all I've got to give
Cross my heart, and I hope to live
I don't know

But it seems that every single dream's
Painted pretty pictures in the air
Then it tumbles in despair
And it starts to bend

Until by the end its a nightmare
I'm gonna give all I've got to give
Cross my heart, and I hope to live
