Carl and Pearl Butler – Don’t Let Me Cross Over Lyrics

Don’t let me cross over

I’m tempted, my darling, to steal you away
Don’t let me cross over, stay out of my way
You know that I love you and I’m not the stealing kind
But I’m faced with heartache and loves cheating line

Don’t let me cross over loves cheating line
You belong to another and you’ll never be mine
I know one step closer would be heaven divine
Don’t let me cross over loves cheating line

I tried to forget you but what else can I do
When your eyes keep on saying that you love me too
I know if I lose you, not a dream will I have left
I don’t want to cheat, dear, but I can’t help myself

Don’t let me cross over loves cheating line
You belong to another and you’ll never be mine
I know one step closer would be heaven divine
Don’t let me cross over loves cheating line
