Queensryche – Hand On Heart lyrics

All eyes were staring you floated through the room
Aarmed with your razor smile cutting to the bone
My voice fell useless you flashed a quick hello
Feeling the fool, could you tell it showed?
But that was sometime ago
A memory vague and fading slow, of somewhere I'd been

Hand on heart
A promise, a word, and a voice
Hand on heart
A rhythm of hope and choice will keep us together

I don't know if I can reach that high
Its a long way to fall
Hauntingly holding my fate with a gaze
Like a child mesmerized by the candles flame
Oh what lies behind those eyes
I could only guess
That certain way you stood apart frome rest
Now where is sotime ago?
Whene everything moved in slow-mo-tion
Caught by my watering eye

Hand on heart
A promise, a word and a voice
Hand on heart
Promising I'll never go
Hand on heart
For reasons you'll never know, together through thick and thin,
Lose or win, I'll be there for you

Strange how the mind changes time and time again
Thins once important now pale in comparison

Hand on heart
A promise, a word, and a voice
Hand on heart
A rhythm of hope, and a vision of choice
Hand on heart
Promising I'll never go
Hand on heart for reasons you'll never know
I promise girl, hand on heart
