You're like a child within
The one who just won't give in
Oh how you love to play
I wanna understand
I wanna do all I can
I wanna make you stay

Where will I find you
Next time I lose you
I'm just a fool for your touch

Cross my heart
I wanna love you
How can I love you
If you keep running away
Cross my heart
It's getting stronger
I can't wait much longer
You gotta stop running away

Your kisses are bittersweet
Alibies incomplete
I know what you didn't say
Now haven't you had your fun
Is anything left undone
Why can't we meet half way

When will you find out
Now that the truth's out
This is more than a careless romance

Cross my heart
I wanna love you
How can I love
If you keep running away
Cross my heart
It's getting stronger
I can't wait much longer
You gotta stop running away

True love is never quite enough
It's so unsure
Is it what you're dreaming of
Darling, it's time you let me in
Maybe tonight
We can start again

Cross my heart
I wanna love you
How can I love you
If you keep running away
Cross my heart
It's getting stronger
I can't wait much longer
You gotta stop running away

Cross my heart
It's getting stronger
I can't wait much longer
You gotta stop running away
Cross my heart
It's getting stronger
I can't wait much longer
You gotta stop running away
