Crosses (†††) - Option Lyrics




I dream a day that god will surface
To retrieve his nails and open your heart.
You'll say you're mine for the ages
Just open your heart and say

"I swear on the cross"
Can you promise this to the grave you'll take my name?
Can you promise me?

Overseas and over mountains
A thousand years I've waited for her
To say the lines "from this day forward"
Just open your heart and say

"I swear on the cross"
Can you promise that to the grave you'll take my name?
Can you promise me?

All this time I've prayed for this day to come true,
No one knows how deep the waves we waded through.
I wish I could take your hand and make it true.
Cause no one knows how far apart we've stayed to get through.

I wish I could take your hand and make it true.
Cause no one knows how far apart we stay to get through.
Can you say "I swear on the cross"
Can you promise that to the grave you'll take my name?
Can you promise me?

    I dream a day that God will surface
    To retrieve his nails and open your heart
    You'll say you're mine for the ages
    Just open your heart
    And say "I swear on the cross"
    Can you promise this to the grave
    You'll take my name? Can you promise me?
    Overseas and over mountains
    A thousand years I've waited for her
    To say the lines "from this day forward"
    Just open your heart
    And say "I swear on the cross"
    Can you promise this to the grave
    You'll take my name? Can you promise me?
    All this time I've prayed for this day to come true
    No one knows how deep the waves we waded through
    I wish I could take your hand and make it true
    'Cause no one knows how far apart we've stayed to get through
    I wish I could take your hand and make it true
    Cause no one knows how far apart we stay to get through
    Can you say "I swear on the cross"
    Can you promise that to the grave
    You'll take my name? Can you promise me?

    I miss my ex so much it’s crazy. We broke up because of long distance and we couldn’t handle it anymore... I know he is my soulmate. He wanted to get marry and play this song in our wedding but I didn’t want to get marry.. and that was the only way to bring him back to me(we were in different countries) but I didn’t want to compromise like that. It’s been 3 years and I still think of him. He gave me this album for our first month together because we LOVE Deftones to death. If you are seeing this LR, I miss you. I’m sorry.

  6. Neil Saft

    Rest in peace Joseph thanks for showing me this song ♡♡♡♡

  7. Gabe A.

    Always count on Chino's vision to captivate listeners with lyrics and a sound that etches itself in your mind. Honestly, Deftones X Crosses, is a genre all in it's own, a sound that can't be replicated or superseded. They own that shit.

  8. igunzOsick

    this about marriage?

  9. marsinfury

    🖤🖤🖤

  10. Emily the Strange

    My fiancé and I plan to dance to this at our wedding. 🖤

    I didn't know this exists. I love it💚💜

  12. Miguel Angel Ruvalcaba Macias

    If he's not a genius he's God, just hear that! wow

  13. Eric Armstrong

    awesomesauce

  14. Shane Dawson

    The only reason this doesn't have millions of views is because people just haven't heard it or know about it. Crosses and palms, basically anything Chino does is a hidden gem.

  15. Game Wizard

    Dedicated to my wife.

    I can't stop seeing the shine on the side of her nose as an arrow pointing to the crosses.

  18. Steven Winn

    when i first started checkin out crosses it made me check out the columbine killer vids, then it lead to only crosses <3 +++

  19. Сергій Прос

    Like this shittt ^_^

  20. Hector Mendez

    I fuckin luv this song!

  21. Kevin

    I always thought this song was about love, which I still think. But I used to think the chorus meant marriage. It can also be about remembering someone

  22. Kevin

    This song still reminds me of you ♥️ I miss you.

  23. Dream Police

    All this time I've prayed for this day to come true. I wish I could take your hand and make it true. No one knows how far apart we stayed to get through. Can you promise, to the grave, you'll say my name... <3 Pix

  29. Lucy Furr

    Wish they still had that video a fan made with the clock work figurines

  30. Mountain Mirrors - heavy acoustic vibe

    Reminds me of Deftones meets Portishead. Nice.

  31. Jorge Condeña Llantoy

    This song always reminds me a past love that couldn't be. It was so sad, but finally, I'm good now :)

    Kevin

    Glad you're doing better. How did you get better?

    Miguel Angel Ruvalcaba Macias

    Past is past bro, if it excruciates you, leave it behind

    Jorge Condeña Llantoy

    @Kevin Time is a good friend. And personal superation, too. :)

  32. John Pollock

    This song makes me think of my best friend, who committed suicide two years ago. I cry everytime

    Dead At Point Blank

    Damn.. deep af

    Gregory Cake

    I know what your going through bro, I lost 1 cousin and 2 of my best friends to suicide,(I'm talking about me) it's a shame because you would think that a friend that close would at least come to you with there problems, instead of the the next morning first words you hear are that there gone. R.I.P. to all my people's and your best friend, sorry my man. I know there's nothing anyone can say to make you feel any better.

  33. hillside scrambler

    Play at .25 speed

  41. Aaron

    How are people going to talk crap about team sleep ????? I love team sleep , how can anyone say only 2 songs were good from team sleep , crosses and team sleep are totally different vibes , I understand chino incorporated different styles on both albums😊

    Billy Times

    Aaron Gonzalez i with you awesome music both groups

    MrBlick76

    Team sleep is on such another level. More progressive and experimental. And Rob crows parts are sooooooo good. I hope he's on the next team sleep

  42. Ingrid luna gonzalez

    Chino moreno I love you

  43. Andrew Kennedy

    Currently overseas for a year away from my wife and children. This song is what I needed to hear.

    Hope you made it safe to your family

  44. Elijah- -jpg

    I love this song soooo much

  45. Mr.Mysterious Crazy Man

    This song is pretty simple, elegant and relaxing

  46. Kassandra Hernandez Lopez

    Just open your heart and... <3 <3 <3 <3

  47. Mora Africano Camilo Andres

    I think the song is about a "marriage proposed" ? but I hardly believed since for more than 10 years I though the song cyber bath was a "erotic song" when was actually about murder xD. whatever this song makes me cry... I admit it.

    Steven St. John

    *Digital Bath

    Diego Alvarez

    Cyber Bath LOL 😂

  48. amber Lingefelt

    no one knows how far apart we stayed to get through

  51. Anthony Lopez

    Need more Crosses in my life!!

  53. Hope We Lag

    This song takes me places.

  54. Jennifer Gamboa

    chills at the end, every time !

  55. John Frank

    Is it too soon to start clamoring for a follow up album? Thankfully Deftones will be releasing an album in the next few weeks!

    Fake Piety

    John Frank gore was fantastic though. Chino has quite a library of music in an array of styles. We have Crosses, Palms, Team Sleep, Deftones......
    If I've missed anything I'd love any suggestions

    John Frank

    @Fake Piety There isn't anything else that I'm aware of. I dig all of his work and listen to it regularly. I'm just hoping Crosses releases a new album.

    Fake Piety

    John Frank same! cheers

    Lucas Allam

    Chino did actually form a new band just around the time new deftones album was released. It's called saudade and they have one single out right now. I'm really hyped for a full length album from them. He doesn't actually sing on it and I heard that he doesn't sing on many of them. It's purely an instrumental but it gets to you.

    John Frank

    @Lucas Allam Sick. Thanks for the heads up! Gonna check it out.

  56. Chapu Vm

    My song of love...❤😍 Only an person.. :3

  57. Nick M. B.

    Seems more Shoegaze than Metal to me. Deftones even covered Cocteau Twins' "Wax & Wane", and did a pretty damn good job.

    All I'm saying is that Chino Moreno can do no wrong. That's all...

  58. Matthew Williams

    Why'd this take me so long to find. I love it!! Just like Maynard, everything Chinook touches is gold

    Fake Piety

    Matthew Williams Chinook 😂

    Matthew Williams

    Lol chino* damn autocorrect

    Tommy MV$ERVTI

    He IS flyer than a helicopter

    Team Ataraxia

    Matthew Williams Lol yeah Maynard is slightly better tho in my opinion

  59. Гитаркин

    Best song on the album am I right?

    Arbeitstisch

    @Josh James ahmmm, crosses is just beautiful but deftones is a masterpiece, cannot be compared

    Josh James

    @Mel you're the stupid one for insulting people over their music preference. Don't come for me unless I send for you, lil' b*tch.

    ToRqC

    @Josh James bruh.. watch ya fucken mouth.

    Richard Dundas

    Гитаркин , you’re god damn right

  60. Imradlikemad

    Chino <3

  61. pavlo pav

    Beautiful! My new tribute song for love.

  62. danthedrummerWAIL

    Kinda surprising crosses or even Chino didn't do a song on Florence + The Sphinx, would have worked better than some of the bands on it but I guess they already had enough mellow songs being a heavy label

  63. nick g

    All this time I've prayed for this day to come true,
    No one knows how deep the waves we waded through.
    I wish I could take your hand and make it true.
    Cause no one knows how far apart we've stayed to get through

    Team Ataraxia

    It's absolutely beautiful to me, even as an atheist, I love it.

    Isaac Mickey

    nick g .

  64. Marian Castro

    This song!!! Omg so sexy.. Chino voice is amazing. Turns me on

  65. Lms Pearl

    Would definitely benefit from actual drums,rather than a machine.

  66. valeria mundaca

    Damn, chino you're fuckinq amazing! I love it

  67. trulyhistoric

    Chino is a true musician. Able to tap into multiple facets and create nothing less than beautiful music; whether it be with Team Sleep, Deftones or Crosses, an artist with that kind of ability is rare. Besides, the music industry is riddled with bands in which their members are from other successful bands. So because you're a vocalist with a distinct voice, you can't expand your work? If you're a Deftones fan and can't appreciate Chino's other work, then you were never truly a fan of Chino in the first place.

    KANSAS1ST

    @trulyhistoric in deftones he speaks in riddles almost.. its nice to hear him just chillin laying it out music wise without having to dissect his lyrics with a comb

    Digs0703

    N now palms also

  68. Deathwing Duck

    I've listened to a few of these songs now and compared to Chino's past side project, Team Sleep, I actually like this more. Not that Team Sleep was bad, not at all, but the music with this band is more fitting to his voice.

    Andrew Kennedy

    Deathwing Duck:My man, I can solidly say I liked only two songs from Team Sleep but I enjoy nearly all of this album.

    312vandal

    Deathwing Duck check out PALMS

    Dead At Point Blank

    respect..

  69. CIVILCHAOS1

    Do you feel what the world is telling you... its all about what makes our moments so unique and special at the same time... music is only a hand that opens that door to  that other dimension and wherever you are .. you are the king of your own little world.

    Mora Africano Camilo Andres

    I take that to my grave.

  70. Clint Webb

    Wow. Every single time I read these kinds of comments I'm reminded of how metalheads are such whiny bitches. I'm glad I grew out of that at 16. I can't imagine why you would spend your time judging music rather than enjoying it. 

    TheKcXiV

    yeah, if anythign isnt heavy and screaming they dont like it! haha.  Especially how peeps get pissed at Manson's new music, this isnt the Manson i grew up hearing. Im like well no shit, he's not the same either, he's in his fucking 40's now asshole! lol

    Aamer Tahseen

    @Clint Webb People are just judgmental because they don't open up to more music, side projects are meant to show a different side of an artist..but people just expect it to be the same like the original work of the artist.

    John Bunch

    +Clint Webb I'm a metalhead and I approve of this message. To be fair, I'm a fan of music first and foremost...most rational individuals are but when I was younger, I may have had the same reaction. Just remember people evolve, no matter what the bible-beaters say. And if they don't evolve, well, they probably aren't much fun to hang with anyway.

  71. SullyTheWolf

    They should tour with twenty one pilots.

  72. Trent J Benson

    They sound like 30 seconds to mars rolled a fat joint and bathed in it..

    bobinchainz

    Nothing could make 30 seconds to mars sound this good sir.

  73. Mike

    How can no one like this? This is absolutely amazing. I love Crosses. Quit your yappin, there's people enjoying music here.

    Theo Cedillo

    Everyone whos heard this song likes it :)

  74. AlexDropDeaD88

    %95 of my music is a little metalcore a little post hardcore and a lot of deathcore! But Crosses is a good band they have good sound and they're chill buying some of their songs 4sure

  75. laurensDG

    I don't get it, Sumerian Records used to be about Djent and progressive metal and brutal bad ass shit!! This is like an emotional failed attempt to follow up Marilyn Manson. I might be to quick to judge but what happened to BoO, AaL, Periphery being badass and shit?

    emanuel osuna

    The greatest djent bands are on Sumerian, that is true. But, this Chino Moreno's(Deftones) side band. Crosses may not be metal, but it gives a similar feeling as BOO and AAL. You don't have to listen to this band if you don't like it, but diversity is a good thing. Just listen to the artists on this great label that appeal to you and leave the ones you don't alone. Good day sir.

  76. Dom Sweat

    sounds kinda like deftones

    T Pitty

    thats cuz 2/3 of it is

    Dom Sweat

    ya after i typed that comment i looked it up and found that out

    T Pitty

    @Tim Harrison well Lopez did help out with some albums...

    Eric Armstrong

    I think if Chino wasn't singing it wouldn't sound like Deftones at all. His voice is so distinctive anything he does is gonna song like Deftones to a point.

    Luke Badger

    @Eric Armstrong truer words haven't ever been spoken lol

  77. 206zamora

    does anyone know if they remade the tracks or are they the same ones from the EP?

    T Pitty

    "remastered"....tomato tomato
