"I Cross My Heart" is a song written by Steve Dorff and Eric Kaz, and performed by American country music artist George Strait. The fiddle breaks are by Stuart Duncan. It was released in September 1992 as the first single to his album Pure Country, which is also the soundtrack to the movie of the same title. It reached number-one in both the United States and Canada. The song is featured as the movie's finale.
I Cross My Heart Our love is unconditional We knew it from the start I can see it in your eyes You can feel it from my heart From here on after Let's stay the way we are right now And share all the love and laughter That a lifetime will allow. I cross my heart And promise to Give all I've got to give To make all your dreams come true In all the world You'll never find A love as true as mine You will always be the miracle That makes my life complete And as long as there's a breath in me I'll make yours just as sweet As we look into the future It's as far as we can see So let's make each tomorrow Be the best that it can be I cross my heart And promise to Give all I've got to give To make all your dreams come true In all the world You'll never find A love as true as mine And if along the way we find a day It starts to storm You've got the promise of my love To keep you warm In all the world You'll never find A love as true as mine A love as true as mine
