I cross my heart and hope to die

from Game – Holy Water Lyrics on Rap Genius


“Hope to die” is connecting to the last line about “suicide”.

The full saying is, “Cross my heart, hope to die, stick a needle in my eye,” basically meaning he’s keeping a promise.

The Game is trying to say that he would do anything to provide for his family and he promises that, continuing in the next lines.
