Lyrics 

Nothing but love, baby

Mm-mm-mm

My, my, my, my, my girl (Look into my eyes)

Would I lie to you, yeah? (Would I lie to you, baby, would I lie to you?)

Look into my eyes, can’t you see they’re open wide?

Would I lie to you, baby, would I lie to you? (Oh, yeah)

Don’t you know it’s true, girl, there’s no one else but you?

Would I lie to you, baby, yeah?

Everybody wants to know the truth

In my arms is the only proof

I’ve hidden my heart behind the bedroom door

Now it’s open, I can’t do no more

I’m telling you, baby, you will never find another girl

In this heart of mine (Oh-oh)

Look into my eyes, can’t you see they’re open wide?

Would I lie to you, baby, would I lie to you? (Oh, yeah)

Don’t you know it’s true, girl, there’s no one else but you?

Would I lie to you, baby, yeah? (Would I lie to you?)

Everybody’s got their history (History)

On every page a mystery (It’s a mystery, yeah)

You can read my diary, you’re in every line

Jealous minds, never satisfied

I’m telling you, baby, you will never find another girl

In this heart of mine (In this heart of mine)

Look into my eyes, can’t you see they’re open wide?

Would I lie to you, baby, would I lie to you? (Oh, yeah)

Don’t you know it’s true, girl, there’s no one else but you?

Would I lie to you, baby, yeah? (Would I lie to you?)

(Would I lie to you?) When you wanna see me night and day

(Would I lie?) If I tell you that I’m here to stay

(Would I lie to you?) Do you think I give my love away?

(Would I lie?) That’s not the kind of game I play

I’m telling you, baby, you will never find another girl

In this heart of mine (In this heart of mine, deep in my heart)

Whoo

Look into my eyes, can’t you see they’re open wide?

Would I lie to you, baby, would I lie to you? (Oh, yeah)

Don’t you know it’s true, girl, there’s no one else but you?

Would I lie to you, baby, yeah? (Would I lie to you?)

(Would I lie to you, baby?)

Look into my eyes, can’t you see they’re open wide?

Would I lie to you, baby, would I lie to you? (Oh, yeah)

Don’t you know it’s true, girl, there’s no one else but you?

Would I lie to you, baby, yeah? (Would I lie to you?)

(Come on, come on, come on, come on and kiss me, baby)

(Look into my eyes)

(Would I lie to you, baby, would I lie to you?)

I wouldn’t lie to you, baby, there ain’t no one else but you
