"Hand On Heart" as written by Geoffery W Tate and Christopher Degarmo....
All eyes were staring
You floated through the room
Armed 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
It's a long way to fall
Hauntingly holding
My fate with a gaze
Like a child, mesmerized
By the candle's flame
Oh what lies behind those eyes
I could only guess
A certain way you stood apart from the rest

Now where is "sometime ago?"
When everything moved in slo-motion
Caught by my watering eye

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

Together through thick and thin
Lose or win, I'll be there for you
Strange how the mind changes
Time and time again
Things 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 (hand on heart)
(Hand on heart)
