You can't turn your back and walk away
 Until the cards are stacked against us
And you thought it through 
But you're gonna lose when it crosses over
Then life turns defenseless and it'll turn on you
Oh if you've loved before don't try to deny it
You can't ignore the way you feel inside 

Don't cross your heart 
It's a fight you can't win
You lose your mind
Don't cross you heart 
Your heart gonna break you every time
What you do is up to you
If you wanna play it smart  Honey don't cross your heart 

You don't dispatch a perfect love
It takes time to make it
You gotta start somewhere 
If the truth be known 
A (diamond ring) is just a piece of stone  Until it shapes it with tender love and care
Chip away until you get to the truth 
Oh I can't make you stay
But whatever you do


What you do is up to you
If you wanna play it smart  Honey don't cross your heart
