I cross my heart
And hope to die
Before I have the chance to lie
To you my dear
Who I wish no harm
But I know in the end this will turn out wrong
See I've been known to fall in love
But sometimes love just is not enough
And my heart will stray
Before too long
So please forgive me
For when I sing this song

    Its about a man who fell in love in the past. He will never be the same, and understands
    love is amazing but traps people, and
    he has a free spirit and free heart
    so he cant promise her forever,
    because the world is to big, and
    it will call him back eventually. He doesn't want to hurt her so hes trying to be as honest as he can
    but love makes us lie.
